The job fair is hiring for a broad range of positions in all 13 DBPR offices across the state, including:
“It is exciting to see our agency try a new, innovative approach to hiring,” said DBPR Secretary Melanie S. Griffin. “With the variety of different jobs we have at our agency and this new hiring approach, I am confident we will grow our amazing team and be even better equipped to support our licensees and the people of Florida.”
Job seekers should bring their resumes and government-issued ID. If job seekers claim veteran preference entitlement, they should also bring copies of their DD-214.
To save time, job candidates may complete a job application in advance. Applications will also be available at the event.
