Calling all firms that are hiring

Have a job opening? Send the title, job description and contact information to and the Downtown Business Association will publish the posting with WorkNet Pinellas. A performance-based grant from WorkNet capped at $40,000 funds a $50 fee to the association, which gets shared with the referring business or association.

This article has been updated to reflect the following correction: A WorkNet Pinellas grant to the St. Petersburg Downtown Business Association is performance-based, with a $40,000 cap. One of the grant duties is to post job listings, for each of which the association receives $50. An item Sunday was unclear about the nature of the grant and incorrect about the amount of the referral fee.
