The Employ Miami-Dade project will focus on the targeted industry sectors of the One Community One Goal strategic plan, where employment growth is essential to making this project a success. The goal is to increase employment opportunities that will help residents become self-sufficient in Miami-Dade.
Employ Miami-Dade has three goals:
- Connect employers with potential workers.
- Provide the skills training necessary to prepare our residents to enter the workforce.
- Ensure that Miami-Dade residents are first in line to be considered for jobs.
Employ Miami-Dade is an initiative introduced and led by Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez to develop innovative ways to bridge the divide between industry and job seekers.
