FORT MYERS, FL, June 9, 2023 – Even through the unemployment rate has been at an all-time low in Southwest Florida, there are still people looking for work, or wanting a better job. To meet this need, Goodwill, Urban Strategies, Florida Department of Corrections, Lee Tran, and the Lee County Library System, have joined forces to offer opportunity.

Collectively they are hosting a Career Fair on Thursday, June 15th, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dr. Carrie B. Robinson Center at 2990 Edison Avenue in Fort Myers. There will be a host of companies looking to hire, educational resources, and door prizes.

On Wednesday, June 14th, Urban Strategies is offering an event called Career Café, for the residents of Southward Village from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dr. Carrie B. Robinson Center. This event will help prepare participants for the Job Fair the next day, June 15th. Goodwill community service staff will provide assistance with resume writing, interviewing tips, and other topics.

“In addition to job search assistance, our Community Resource Center staff are helping more and more with digital navigation,” states Goodwill Director of Employment Services, Angela Hemstreet. “Many visitors to the centers are requesting assistance with how to use computers and tablets, and learning how to navigate websites and software programs. So many day-to-day tasks now need to be completed digitally. Goodwill is here to help.”

The Career Fair is open to the public. In addition to the companies hiring, other community resource partners attending include: Goodwill, Cape Coral Tech, Ft. Myers Tech, Southern Technical College, Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, Lee Clerk of Courts, and FutureMakers.
