Welcome To TampaBay-Job-Links!

TBJL is a non-profit organization that provides individuals with career guidance and job-search coaching, and provides area employers with qualified pre-screened candidates.

Our career strategists work one-on-one and in small groups with a diverse population of job seekers, assisting them through their career transition.

TBJL job-seeking candidates include:

  • Professionals who have lost jobs through no fault of their own
  • Career changers
  • Recent college graduates
  • Mature workers unable to retire
  • Women entering the workforce for the first time or after a hiatus
  • Veterans in transition
  • Long-term unemployed

TBJL is not a recruiting firm or job placement agency. We help people find jobs by

  • developing individualized job search tools and strategies
  • mobilizing community leaders and
  • opening doors to networking and employment opportunities
