Personal computers with internet access are available for filing claims for unemployment compensation online, as well as to search job banks for available work, and to post resumes for prospective employers to see. Fax machines are also provided for faxing resumes and other forms. Personal assistance in filing claims is currently only provided in English.

Note: Orlando also has what is called a "JobVantage" center at 1563 Florida Mall Avenue. It provides NO real UI assistance of any kind to the unemployed. They just distribute trinkets and present "lectures" about things like using Facebook. Don't waste your time there.
