DAYTONA BEACH – In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CareerSource Flagler Volusia (CareerSourceFV) has launched a new website to assist jobseekers and businesses who have suffered a job loss or have had to temporarily or permanently lay off employees as a result of COVID-19.
On the new mobile-friendly webpage, available at www.careersourcefv.com/job-seekers/covid-19-response, small businesses can find information about programs designed to support them during the COVID-19 pandemic, including Disaster Loan Assistance, the Short Time Compensation Program, and the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program.
Job seekers will find information on how to apply for Reemployment Assistance, download and print paper Reemployment Assistance applications, connect to online resume and interviewing workshops, and search for jobs through the statewide Employ Florida database: www.employflorida.com.
Additionally, the site provides answers to commonly asked questions, including how to reset the PIN in the CONNECT System, as well as links to frequently asked questions specific to COVID-19.
“In an effort to help businesses who are needing to furlough employees until it is safe to reopen, we wanted to make it as easy as possible to find the paper applications for their employees. We have staff available via phone and virtual platforms to answer general questions about Reemployment Assistance and services available for employees who are facing permanent layoffs. The number is (386) 323-7052,” said Robin King, president and CEO of CareerSource Flagler Volusia. “Businesses who may be hiring, retraining their current employees or have questions about our other services, may call (386) 323-7079 and speak with a Business Service Representative.”
Paper applications are available for residents who do not have access to the internet or have experienced difficulty using the online CONNECT system. These paper applications are available 24/7 for curbside pick-up at all three CareerSource Flagler Volusia Career Centers located in Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Orange City.
Staff will be restocking the bins daily in an effort to meet the needs of the community. The Career Centers are located at:
Daytona Beach: 359 Bill France Blvd., Daytona Beach, FL 32117
Orange City: 846 Saxon Blvd., Orange City, FL 32763
Palm Coast: 20 Airport Road, Suite E, Palm Coast, FL 32164
