Business digest

Briefly

CAREERSOURCE PASCO HERNANDO LAUNCHES WEBSITE: To connect employers and those seeking internship opportunities, CareerSource Pasco Hernando has created a website. The site, pascohernandointern.com, will provide a single location for employers and prospective interns to find open positions throughout Pasco and Hernando counties.

The program provides opportunities for individuals who have completed occupational classroom skills training and need to gain job-related skills and knowledge. Based on a potential intern's eligibility, employers may benefit by being reimbursed between 50 and 80 percent of the intern's wages. The site provides opportunities not only to students and job-seekers, but also veterans.
