Charlotte County is hiring and open for business

April 11, 2022

It’s no secret, there are countless positions that are available and waiting to be filled within our community by the right, dedicated, and qualified candidates. At the same time gas prices are teetering well above the norm. By taking a job north or south of us for a couple of extra dollars per hour, there is one school of thought, those dollars go right to the gas tank.

For those who are looking for employment, whether family members, friends or neighbors, there are three hiring events that are happening in the month of April with a full array of employment opportunities. Today, Monday, April 11, CareerSource Southwest Florida in conjunction with Charlotte County will be having a hiring event at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center located at 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda. The event is from 3–7 p.m. There will be full-time, part-time, seasonal, and internships available.

Polish up those resumes and get ready for some great hiring opportunities!
