This statewide hiring fair addresses the employment needs of veterans by bridging the gap between Florida veteran job seekers and Florida’s job creators. CareerSource Tampa Bay is excited to serve those who have served our country. Through Paychecks for Patriots, companies will be connected with talented, well-trained veterans to join their teams.

In the past six years, more than 5,700 of veteran candidates and military family members who participated across the state have gained employment during the Paychecks for Patriot events.
