This week, we officially launched our own COVID-19 job market relief program that we’re calling the “Instant Placement Initiative.”

The Backstory

The service industry has taken an enormous hit during this time. We don’t have to tell you how many hard-working individuals have continued to risk their lives in order to make ends meet for their families. This includes essential business managers and their employees. These heroes inspired us to create an initiative to leverage our position in the job searching market. The demand for pandemic products have drastically increased, and many of our community cannot afford to go without a paycheck. As an intermediary between the two parties – job seekers and local employers – we have implemented a solution to help everyone get what they need.

Getting Involved

In recent weeks, JobGet has matched thousands of workers to essential businesses in need of employees. These establishments are urgently hiring to satisfy consumers’ needs for goods such as food and toiletries.

Grocery stores, big-box discount retailers, takeout/delivery restaurants, pharmacies, transportation companies, assisted living, childcare providers, healthcare providers, etc. These essential businesses need help with staffing.

Millions of individuals have been laid off, as we all know. Unfortunately, a predominant amount of these individuals were working in the service industry, and can’t afford to go months without a paycheck, or wait weeks for unemployment. We saw the connection between these two, and couldn’t stand by without doing something about it. 

How It Works:

The Instant Placement Initiative connects job seekers and employers without the challenges of traditional job searching. From now until June 30th, the Initiative will offer up to $5,000.00 in free job-posting credits for each employer. The goal is to eliminate the traditional burdens in order to help the businesses thrive during this time. This will result in a quicker hiring process for thousands of recently laid-off workers. If you would like to be a part of the JobGet Instant Placement Initiative, go to https://www.jobget.com/employer/. Follow the steps to fill out the employer form. We’ll be in touch within the hour. 

JobGet will also help these displaced hourly workers by setting up instant interviews with local employers. As always, JobGet is free for candidates to use. We are working around the clock to ensure that we can connect you with the right open position so that you can apply, interview, and get hired. Fast. 

 

Stay home and stay healthy. As always, JobGet is here for you. Reach out to us, and let us know how we can help you.
