Default Is there a site...

Hi all,
It's getting closer my interview and with my number just come up for second pack I thought it was time to get active in finding out what Florida, Yes I know before you do, has to offer.
Is there a site like the Job centre, an official site where I can email and ask more about the whole employment front going on.
I thought it time to get some serious groundwork in so I can start thinking about this whole thing more prepared like.
As always your help is invaluable

Stick with the government sites and you won't have to worry about scams etc.

Unless you have a skill/profession which is in demand and not enough Americans available, I'd say Ray's statement is pretty accurate. It really is dire here at the moment

There are many many people who are looking for work, prepared to do anything, but can't get jobs.

Depends on what you do for them, I'm sure the VP jobs advertised on there don't pay the pits.

The site has very few, if any, jobs at the theme park, thats a different section.

Yep, you don't have to be in Orlando or Anaheim. People are always quite surprised when they find out my hubby worked for Disney in Milton Keynes
