Outplacement Services

CareerSource Broward's Employer Services staff coordinates assistance for Florida’s employers and workers affected by temporary and permanent business layoffs. During on-site sessions, our team will review workforce services available to assist in reemployment and review other resources such as the Florida Reemployment Assistance Program.  Our services include:

  • Navigating your way around our Centers' Resource Rooms
  • Training opportunities through Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA)
  • Free Resume and Interviewing Skills classes available through CareerSource Broward Centers
  • Setting up your 'LinkedIn' or other social media profiles
  • CareerSource Broward Center On-Site Recruitments and local Job Fair Information
  • How to apply for Reemployment Assistance
  • When to apply and how to claim benefit weeks
  • Requirements while on Reemployment Assistance 

Florida no longer has a local unemployment office. Therefore, this is valuable face-to-face opportunity to have unemployment questions answered. If a WARN notice has been filed, a member of our Employer Services team will be contacting your company to offer services. If your company does not meet the requirements for filing a WARN, a member of our team can be contacted directly to set up these valuable onsite outplacement sessions.  For more information on State of Florida WARN procedures click here.
