Looking for new employment -- have job postings sent to you.
If you are seeking employment, consider working for the City of Tampa, it's a great organization. The problem is you want to know when a job opens that you'd like to pursue. You can return to TampaGov frequently, checking the list of jobs using your Internet browser; or you can call the Job Line (813-274-8115) once or more each week; or you can check bulletin board postings by Employment Services. Instead subscribe to the Employment Openings. New job openings will be received only when they are posted. You won't need to remember to call the Job Line or to visit the web site, the opportunities will be delivered directly to you for your consideration.
How do you use the TampaGov RSS feeds?
What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for content distribution. TampaGov offers several RSS feeds with headlines, descriptions and links back to TampaGov.net for additional detail.
We encourage use of the feeds, and you may re-post them as long as you provide proper attribution to the City of Tampa. Whenever you post TampaGov content on your web site or anywhere else, please identify TampaGov.net as the source.
RSS feeds by themselves may be confusing. If you view one in most browsers, youll see XML source code, which is intended for an RSS reader/aggregator. RSS aggregators periodically check for new items in the feeds you subscribe to. This results in the content coming to you, rather than you having to go get it. It saves time, and the RSS aggregator gets only new information, avoiding all the other content on a web page. Many FREE readers are available, simply Google search for "free RSS reader" or view this list of readers.
