While Florida remains a leader in the nation, our state will need to create two million net new jobs between now and 2030. There are currently 501,000 Floridians looking for jobs, and 242,600 Florida jobs looking for people. 

Currently, Florida's unemployment rate is at five percent. But depending on the level of education attainment, that number may be significantly lower or higher.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a higher educational attainment level means a lower unemployment rate, more participation in the labor force and higher median weekly earnings.
