The Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation is trying to fill dozens of positions.

A state agency is holding a job fair today, seeking to fill dozens of positions. The Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation (DBPR) isn’t immune from the widespread worker shortage.

The job fair is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at DBPR at 2601 North Blair Stone Road.

“We have approximately 1500 employees located at 13 offices across the state who do a wide variety of jobs ranging from administrative assistants to auditors to investigators to attorneys and everything in between,” says DBPR Secretary Melanie Griffin in a video promoting the job fair.

The DBPR website says all positions pay at least $15 an hour. Those interested should take a resume and ID. Those seeking veteran’s preference should take their DD-214.
