Job Seekers Market at 15th Annual Career Expo

April 26, 2019



PANAMA CITY, FL — The 15th year was one to remember for the CareerSource Gulf Coast Career Expo. On Thursday, April 25, over 100 job seekers came to FSU Panama City’s Holley Center, ready to meet face-to-face with employers. 

CareerSource Gulf Coast also added additional offerings to help job seekers benefit the most from the event—free suits leading up to the event and professional head-shots.


            “The 2019 Career Expo was very unique,” said Kim Bodine, Executive Director of CareerSource Gulf Coast. “We were a recipient of Volunteer Florida’s Suits for Session, which allowed us to offer free suits and professional attire to the community. We also offered free professional headshots for job seekers during our Career Expo. We were pleased with the results from both.”


            The 15th Annual Career Expo was from 9 am-12 pm on Thursday, April 25, at FSU Panama City’s Holley Center. Veterans and transitioning service members received early-access at 8:30 am. CareerSource Gulf Coast also provided over 70 event participants with a free professional headshot—a great success for its first year. 


Career Expo employers are still seeking immediate hires who possess a range of skills and experience. We saw a vast variety of positions available at the event, from business-industry positions to hospitality. Several trade positions were also represented, including construction, welding and pipefitting positions.
