In an effort to connect temporarily displaced workers with employment opportunities, resources, and opportunities for upskilling, the FIU Office of Engagement is implementing the following initiatives through FIU SkillsForce.
Displaced worker survey
Are you currently out of work due to the closures of businesses in an effort to reduce the impact of COVID-19? Click here to fill out a short survey and gain access to free resources that can connect you with employment and professional development opportunities.
Local employer survey
Through partnerships with local employers, we are able to minimize the gap of unemployment for our participants, and help ensure companies and organizations have the workforce needed in the current economic environment. Employers who fill out our local employer survey help us to better understand the employment opportunities currently available, and match those opportunities with qualified potential employees.
