The highest job demands are for the following career paths: sales, consumer services, health care, and finance. Though Florida has more jobs open now than they did prior to the start of the pandemic, the Florida unemployment rate has gone up slowly month by month according to the National Conference of State Legislatures

Within the next decade, Florida is expected to have the 10th largest economy in the world!
