Ep. 81 – Community Partners Working Together to Bridge Local Talent Gap, Jim McShane, CareerSource Capital Region

CareerSource Capital Region has been a longtime partner of the Chamber, helping local businesses find qualified, skilled talent and job seekers with employment and career development opportunities. Their efforts help us in achieving our goal to become the talent capital of Florida by 2030.

On this week’s episode of the Tallahassee Business Podcast, presented by Event Owl, CareerSource Capital Region CEO, Jim McShane joins Sue to talk about the numerous services that go beyond just job seeking, at little to no cost. Most recently, CareerSource partnered with Leon County Sheriff’s Office on their 1,000 Jobs for 1,000 Youth initiative. Their goal is to help youth not enrolled in school obtain the skills and training they need to find employment. Keeping our youth safe and giving them a sense of responsibility helps the overall community and economy.
