TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - On Thursday, the nonprofit employment service EmployU held their grand opening in Tallahassee as they look to bring their services to the Big Bend area.

EmployU says they are a partner of vocational rehabilitation. The organization has already helped over 3,000 clients with disabilities find job opportunities in fields they actually love, they said.

“Our job is to help them overcome their disabilities and find out what it is they’re interested in doing and also where their skills are at and where they’re going to really thrive,” said EmployU Executive Director Keith Bourkeny.

EmployU says they have already built relationships with more than 30 businesses in town.
