  • A business service team to be on site weekly to meet the needs of businesses while expanding outreach to the business community in Levy County
  • Workshops for candidates in resume development, interview techniques, as well as social media footprint.

The Levy Career Center is open Monday-Friday, except holidays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 352-249-3278 or 800-434-JOBS or visit its web site.
