New to Pensacola [Apr. 4th, 2010|10:43 am]

I just recently moved to North East Pensacola (Ferry Pass area) from St. Louis, Mo and I'm having some trouble finding a job. I've tried the usual online sites and many of the listings on them appear to be scams, or I'm just not qualified. I was hoping if any kind person here had any leads they might be willing to share them with me, even if it's just a fast food joint or whatever. I have no prior work experience and have only completed about 2 years of college at this point.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Job Searching in Pensacola is hard. I start a new job in a week after looking for over 7 months. If you are looking for fast food, your best bet is to go to each store and ask to fill out a job application. They tend not to post work. With tourist season coming up, head out to Pensacola Beach and go door to door to businesses and ask to fill out app.

Two job sites that list real jobs are

http://www.pensacolajobs.com/
https://www.employflorida.com/

and finally there is a job fair coming up. See details below. Bring a resume and dress nice. Way to many people don't and get the brush off.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Hagler Auditorium of the Lou Ross Center, Building 3, on the campus at 1000 College Blvd.
Pensacola Junior College Student Job Services and Workforce Escarosa will hold a Spring Career Fair on April 9 at PJC's Pensacola campus.


Come dressed for success and bring copies of your resume.

Participating employers include Gulf Power Co., Escambia County Utility Authority, Navy Federal Credit Union, U.S. Census Bureau, Lakeview Center, Smart Horizons, Advanced Communications, Clearwire, West Corp., Santa Rosa Medical Center, Sears and many more.
