CareerSource Heartland Public Notices


Alert: Possible SCAM

CareerSource Heartland has received reports of calls to individuals stating it is the State of Florida calling concerning a criminal matter. The recipient of the call is being advised to call the local workforce office and provide a 4-digit number (possibly personally identifiable information). The caller provides phone numbers that are not the numbers of the local workforce offices.
This appears to be a scam. Local law enforcement is advising people who receive these calls to block the caller and take no further action.

Local Demand Occupations List
Process and Request for Additions

The Local Demand Occupations List (DOL) is of great importance to our area's businesses and job seekers. Its' purpose is to help assure the most effective use of workforce development resources. When considering approval of funds for additional job training and education, Local Workforce Development Areas (LWDAs) may only spend workforce dollars on training in occupations that are listed on the current DOL.

Each year, Florida's Workforce Estimating Conference – in accordance with Chapter 216.136 (7), F.S. – updates the State and LWDA Demand Occupations lists, based on a review of current economic conditions and labor market information. Occupations included on the lists meet specified wage rates and generally project a minimum of ten (10) job openings for the upcoming year. The list is generally limited to positions that require a two (2) year degree equivalent or less.

Only LWDAs may request changes to their Local DOL. Collaboration with local partners is imperative in ensuring that workforce dollars are targeted to support the actual needs of the businesses in the local area.

Upon receipt of the proposed DOL from CareerSource Florida (CSF), CareerSource Heartland (CSH) staff distributes a copy of the proposed list to CSH Business Enhancement Committee (BEC) members, local economic development and educational partners, and Chambers of Commerce representatives. Suggestions for changes are collected by CSH staff and presented to the CSH BEC. The BEC's final recommendations are presented to the CSH Board of Directors for consideration and approval.

Requests for addition to the DOL may be made at any time. Requested additions will be presented to the CSH BEC, following the same process. To request the addition of an occupation to the list, please click on the link below. Please be certain to thoroughly complete all information. Additional documentation may be requested. Please complete a separate entry for each requested occupation.
