The Florida job market is gradually improving. More people are getting and keeping jobs. But things are still tight and many people continue to struggle to find jobs. Too many companies are reluctant to hire or may be willing to lay off employees.

"I have been looking for a job for a long time. I work in office management and I would love to find another job in this field. But it is just very hard to find work these days," said Allison Brown.

"I work in the human resources field. I see how many people are looking for jobs. It is not easy out there," said Janice Meyer.

"I just wish I could find something in restaurant management. I went to school to work in hospitality but it so hard to find a solid opportunity in managing a food service operation," said Marianne Rivera.
