Clearwater, FL (October 10, 2006)
– Florida CareerLINK, the Tampa Bay area’s leading recruitment services
provider, is capitalizing on the 18-24 year old job seekers’ enthusiasm
for text messaging by launching a new text message alert service that
communicates the way they do.
The text messaging service is free for job seekers who complete their Dream Job Profile on the Florida CareerLINK web site, www.floridacareerlink.com.
Job seekers with a cell phone and text message capability can input
their text message contact information into their profile for Florida
CareerLINK to send instant alerts when jobs meeting their selection
criteria appear on the site. If job seekers give permission, employers
can also send them text messages updating the candidates about the

“Florida CareerLINK has always responded to the needs of
our employers and job candidates to improve communications between
them,” said Pam Kauten, President of Florida CareerLINK. “This new text
messaging feature helps us keep job seekers updated on career
opportunities and other news almost instantly. The response to our
initial test of this service was incredible, and we expect wide
adoption among both employers and candidates.”
Florida CareerLINK’s web site also offers rich content and career resources for job seekers in career tracks such as Healthcare and Sales. There are also special sections that serve Spanish-speaking job seekers (the Hispanic Voice pages) and address Diversity issues.
