CareerSource offering on-campus assistance for students

Students can meet with the CareerSource representative at the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Preparing to enter the workforce or make a career transition? A new on-campus resource can help.

CareerSource Central Florida is partnering with the Career Development Center at Seminole State College of Florida to offer prospective and current students assistance related to employment programs and services.

The CareerSource representative at Seminole State will focus primarily on helping interested students learn about the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), an employment assistance program that helps job seekers by providing access to career training and, in some cases, paid internships.

Seminole State offers about 80 CareerSource WIA-approved training programs in fields such as business, healthcare, information technology and public safety. Many of these programs are Pell Grant eligible, which means qualified students may receive financial assistance.

In addition, CareerSource is awarding Career Development Training scholarships worth up to $7,000 for qualified candidates to pursue training in a WIA-approved program.

To start the scholarship application process, students must first meet the following basic eligibility requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Live in Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole or Sumter counties
  • Be registered for selective service (for males 18 or older only)
  • Be eligible to work in the United States
  • Have a valid Social Security number

CareerSource representative Rachel Montanez will be available to assist students by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Career Development Center (C-104) at the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. Walk-ins are welcome from 10:30 a.m. - noon on Tuesdays and from 4 - 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays.

For more information about the WIA program and CareerSource services, contact Montanez or visit the CareerSource website.
