Rental car company may hire for Jacksonville management jobs

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Enterprise Rent-A-Car may soon be hiring for Jacksonville management jobs.

More than 5,800 Enterprise Rent-A-Car locations throughout the U.S. plan to hire 8,500 college graduates into the renowned Enterprise Management Training program and 2,000 interns into the Management Internship program this year. And for the first time, ties are not required.

Enterprise Holdings Inc. operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, as well as National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car, through its integrated global network of independent regional subsidiaries and franchises. These regional subsidiaries employ 100,000 worldwide.

In fiscal year 2017 alone, Enterprise Holdings grew total revenues 6.5 percent to $22.3 billion and expanded its network to include 9,900 fully staffed neighborhood and airport locations in more than 90 countries throughout the world.

Enterprise’s total revenues have more than doubled during the last decade along with overall fleet size – now nearly 1.9 million vehicles. In addition, since 2007, the company has grown its share of the U.S. airport market 10 percentage points.

To support this growth, Enterprise branch offices hire thousands of college-educated, career-oriented men and women into the Enterprise Management Training program each year.

This program teaches employees how to run a business, empower teams and provide face-to-face customer service. Other hallmarks of the program include extensive training in a wide range of business skills, including profit and loss management, business-to-business marketing and sales, and operational logistics.

New grants may affect Jacksonville jobs

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

A number of new grants may affect the workforce at large, including those with Jacksonville jobs.

The U.S. Department of Labor announced the availability of $20 million in grants to help Americans who are injured or ill remain in or return to the workforce. The grants are intended to identify new, replicable strategies to help individuals with a work-related disability stay on the job.

“America’s workforce is strengthened by the participation of all Americans. After an injury or illness, it is critical for workers to have the ability to return to the labor force as quickly as possible,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. “These grants will help develop innovative strategies that enable injured or ill Americans to return to work so they can support themselves and provide for their families.”

The grants represent the first phase of funding for Retaining Employment and Talent After Injury/Illness Network (RETAIN) Demonstration Projects, which will be administered by the Department’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), in partnership with the Department’s Employment and Training Administration  and the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Successful applicants will propose coordinated employment and health services through an integrated network of partners, including state and/or local workforce development agencies; health-care systems and/or provider networks; and other strategic partners, such as employers or insurers.

The Department anticipates awarding up to eight grants of approximately $2.5 million each to be spent over an 18-month period for planning and start-up activities, including the launch of a small pilot demonstration. Near the conclusion of this first phase, the Department anticipates competitively awarding up to four of the Phase One grantees with additional funding up to approximately $19.5 million each to implement their demonstration projects at full scale. The Department anticipates Phase Two will span 42 months, including 30 months for project implementation and 12 for closeout and final assessment activities. The SSA will administer an independent evaluation of the RETAIN projects.
