Workforce Central Florida was able to help me out when no other organization could. Still to this day I can not thank them enough. They provided me with a temporary job that allowed me to earn money over my summer break from school. They didn't just assign me a job, but instead gave me a list to choose from. I had such a great time where I worked and learned so much. I was able to put the internship with them on my resume and was happy to see how impressed employers were by it. Workforce Central Florida put me back on my feet.I hope that others will get the chance to experience what I did! I highly recommend WCF and hope to see them continuing with all that they do!

Lake Sumter EMS had student workers for 6 weeks during the months of July 2009 and August 2009. We had 4 students. One of the students was extended to stay for an additional 4 weeks. The students were instrumental as we were moving our Support offices from one location to another. Workforce kept in close contact regarding the students progress and work habits. The students were required to keep a Daily Log reviewing their experiences. Workforce collected these weekly and reviewed. One student had an issue regariding attitude and I relayed this to Workforce. Workforce came in immediately and corrected the problem.
