You can also try, http://www.palmcoastgov.com/ There are links there, including one for the Chamber of Commerce, that may be useful. As for wages, I've found around $10/hr to be the average starting pay, but experience can add to that.
In the area of construction, there may be some good opportunities. I've noticed an increase in new construction starts, and there are a lot of short sale and foreclosure homes that could be a good source of renovations.
As always, if I can help in any way, please feel free to contact me directly.
