Connecting Job Seekers to Apprenticeships at CareerSource NEFL

Apprenticeships have been used for many years to train new employees in specialized trades like shipbuilding and electrical work.

Now, employers in diverse industries are starting up apprenticeship programs as a way to attract quality people to their businesses.

In these “We’re Here to Help” videos, listen as CareerSource Northeast Florida Apprenticeship Navigator Doreen Lund explains how apprenticeships work and how she can help employers both fund and set up their first apprenticeship programs – and why job seekers should consider this great ‘earn while you learn’ alternative to the traditional four-year college degree.

Apprenticeships are expanding in Florida and are available in a host of industries including Information Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, Construction, Hospitality, Trades, and more.

Earn while you learn at an organization investing in you and your future. Under the guidance of a mentor, you will be taught new skills, earn periodic raises, receive national certification, and have a well-paying job on completion.
