The new year is now really getting underway. School is about to start and many workplaces are getting started in earnest. The Florida unemployment rate is less than 7 percent and this means many people are seeking new opportunities.

"I hope to get a promotion. I may go back to school and get more skills. I am hoping for good things in my career and personal life this year," said Mindy Holt.

"I am working in the construction trade and I think this year will be a lot better than previous years. I have a good job now and I hope to keep it and get lots of hours," said Daniel Baker.

"I am looking forward to going back to school in January. I want to get into the medical field," said Miriam Gonzalez.
