Companies often need assistance in finding and training employees. Collier EDO can help connect you with the ideal candidates for your business through CareerSource, our educational institutions, and through the Greater Naples Chambers’ Work-based learning program.

The local job market is dynamic and rich with talent. From 2014 to 2019 jobs grew faster in Collier County than the national average. There are various local workforce development partners, including the Lorenzo Walker Technical Institute, Hodges University, Ave Maria University, and Immokalee Technical College, which produces the most graduates.
