Locating Vacant Positions

Job vacancy information for the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, is available through the People First Job Center.

From this website, candidates may review vacancies, create a candidate profile, sign up to receive vacancy notices and apply for state job vacancies online. Candidates can search the website for positions of interest based on specific job category, location, keyword, agency or any combination of these or they can simply choose to view all jobs available statewide. In addition, candidates can register and set up a simplified profile in the system by selecting from the above-mentioned options. When an announcement is posted that matches the candidate’s profile, an email is generated informing the candidate of the announcement and providing a link to the posting for their review. Candidates can then review the job posting to decide if it is a position for which they would like to apply.

Contact a Career Source Florida Center for information on state employment opportunities. To locate the nearest office, check the directory under CareerSource Florida.
