“As South Florida begins to recover, we realize that our agency plays a vital role in helping individuals and businesses that are experiencing unprecedented economic hardship,” said Mason C. Jackson, President/CEO of CareerSource Broward. “Although our day-to-day operations may look a little different as we adapt to the ‘next normal,’ we are even more committed to helping Broward County residents obtain employment, while still supporting companies – small, medium and large – that have been negatively impacted due to this health crisis.”
In order to comply with local, state and federal health guidelines, routine cleaning and sanitation of common areas will be conducted throughout the day at each career center. Staff will also be given personal protection equipment (PPE), including gloves, hand sanitizer and plexiglass dividers, and individuals will be screened and subject to temperature checks prior to entering.
