Looking for jobs in Cape Coral Florida isn't the same as looking in my small hometown in Connecticut.  You can't just get the local newspaper, search through a good selection of job listings, then call and arrange an interview.  You have to go online .......... newspapers here may only list a few jobs.

If you need help with your resume, but prefer to go online, go to Job Hero, for help and to see examples of resumes and cover letters related to different jobs and industries, along with available jobs and additional resources.

I recently spent 3 months looking for a job, and started out with first.  I sent out many resumes, but who knows where they went ......... somewhere lost out in cyberspace, I think.  I only heard from insurance companies for sales positions I had no interest or experience in.

I then tried Craigslist, and until I figured out who the spammy/scammy job posters were, I received lots of emails from job sites all posting the same jobs.  You might also apply for a job and somehow end up applying for career training instead ..... frustrating! 

Watch out for:

  • Wage offerings that sound too high.
  • Too little or too generalized information.
  • Reply emails that are the same for many jobs.

The more information the job poster gives ...... such as company name, photos, and phone number along with the usual email reply, and more in-depth details describing the position, the more likely the job is legitimate.

You may also want contact ProTemp, Cape Coral's temp agency for clerical and administrative positions that could possibly lead to full-time work. 

I've heard that these temp/employment agencies are also good:  Spherion, Accountemps, and Robert Half.

I found a job by signing up with SWFL Job Openings, a Facebook page started by a woman named Carly Allison who wanted help others find jobs after her husband lost his.  He is working again and to give back to the community Carly searches everyday for jobs, calls to verify them, and posts them to help others.  Send her a friend request, and once she accepts you, you'll be able to scroll down and search her job postings.

Or, you can just go to her new website, to search for her job postings by category such as town or job type.

Also try Southwest Florida Works.  Although it may take awhile, there are all kinds of jobs in Cape Coral Florida, keep persisting until you find the one that works for you!

Be aware that seasonal jobs at restaurants, hotels, and spas may cut their staff and/or staff's hours off-season.

I have found that you are more likely to get a job in the Cape Coral area if you:

  • Apply for jobs that you have previous experience in.
  • You speak Spanish or German.  Medical offices look for bilingual Spanish speakers and property management companies look for bilingual German speakers.
  • Computer experience.
  • Microsoft Office experience ....... particularly Word, Excel, Outlook, and Power Point.

Are you looking to buy a business?  I have a great resource ......... Bruce is a Florida business broker at Truforte Business Group.

They have experience in selling many different types of businesses, including: restaurants, franchises, retail, distribution, internet companies, website companies, home-based businesses, and much more.

If you have a business already but need working capital, contact Stellar Business Funding.  My friend, Shannon, provides business cash advances, business loans, SBA loans, equipment leasing, and credit card processing.

It all worked out because I found something I really enjoy........ I built this website!

Since I absolutely love it here where I live, I decided to build a website about Cape Coral.
