About Florida

Florida is known has the ‘Sunshine State’ and with good reason, plenty of sun year-round along with miles and miles and miles of beaches.

Florida does not have a state income tax which makes it a desired location. Believe it or not Florida’s State Sales Tax is lower than most other states especially California and New Jersey which have State Income Tax. Most companies in Florida will compensate at the National Market Rate for salary and hourly which makes Florida even more enticing to take a position if offered.

Tourism is one of Florida’s largest industries, however there are several other industries where IT jobs are plentiful. The Space Program and companies they provide technologies for space and air flight are also plentiful. Government jobs in other areas outside the space program are universally available. Healthcare like everywhere else is in huge demand.

Florida is the worst place in the United States to be unemployed in. One, everything favors the employer, they have all the control and can do whatever they please and the state employment office automatically accepts their decision. The employment reemployment assistance and the EmployFlorida.com websites are very incompetent and have been for years, in fact any employer that I have worked for and at Fossnel.com these sites would never be allowed to be put into production. If you must apply for unemployment in Florida,

Overall, Florida is not the worst or best place to be but Fossnel still ranks it high and if you like the beach, it is the place to be.
