Lost Job? Come To Florida Says Rick Scott

Florida Governor Rick Scott today invited oil and gas industry employees laid off around the country as part of the global fallout from declining oil prices to consider living and working in Florida.

Scott said, “We welcome workers in the energy sector who may be affected by layoffs in other states to move to Florida and build a great career here. Not only does Florida offer a great quality of life with exceptional weather year-round, but we have no state income tax and a world-class education system. Our private sector is booming - we have added over 728,000 jobs in four years and we have over 269,000 online job openings. Florida is on a mission to be the global destination for jobs and we have plenty of opportunities available for families.”

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity developed Information about the job seeker’s work experience and education entered into the site will be forwarded to the CareerSource Florida network professionals in the region chosen by the job seeker for potential matches with available positions or future opportunities.

According to Scott, Florida’s economy continues to experience strong growth, with an annual job growth rate exceeding that of the nation since April 2012. He says all 10 of Florida’s major industries have experienced over-the-year job gains, and private sector employment increased by 225,700 jobs last year.
