As 2020 heads into the final stretch, Talent Center staff remains busy with candidates looking for opportunities and businesses looking for their next employees. In addition to serving professionals in transition, we have remained engaged with many of the professors on the College of Central Florida campus to help guide their students through resume development. We also continue to be available to the students graduating who may need assistance moving towards their goal occupations.

We were thankful to be able to continue our services virtually throughout the Spring and Summer months, but November 2nd marked the re-opening of the Talent Center office for “in person” appointments and we are excited to be back in the physical office.

All of us at Talent Center wish everyone a safe and
joyous holiday season!
