Hi, Arturo, welcome to MiamiBeach411. You’ll have to contact the companies directly to arrange an interview. Also, don’t forget to search the help wanted ads at Miami.Craigslist.

Good luck!

Would it be wise to use a Recruiter in the area to assist you when looking for employment?  I will be relocating to Miami with a place to live after my daughter finishes this school year.  Also when is the best time to start looking based on when I will be in the area?
