A new partnership between the MassHire Central Region Career Centers and JobGet will connect the region’s job seekers with area companies now hiring.
Boston, MA, Apr 20, 2020 - JobGet today announced a new partnership with MassHire Central. Available at no cost to job seekers, and free to employers for the next six months as both organizations seek to address labor market needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Many of the almost half million people now unemployed in Massachusetts want to return to work," said Janice Ryan Weekes, Executive Director of the region's two career centers in Worcester and Southbridge. "We believe our new partnership with JobGet will expedite that by connecting job seekers with numerous employers seeking to fill critical needs now."
"This partnership puts MassHire at the forefront of deploying mobile app technology to meet the needs of those whom we serve," emphasized Weekes. "We're thrilled JobGet has offered the service to companies for free during this crisis, and we look forward to further developing this partnership post-pandemic."
JobGet is a mobile app that helps employers and job seekers connect instantly.
Employers can hire as quickly as 24 hours, and job seekers can receive job offers as quickly as 24 hours through instant messaging or video interviews.
JobGet is the 2019 Global Winner of the MIT Inclusive Innovation Challenge, as well as the 2019 Gold Winner of MassChallenge. The platform works closely with the Mayor's Office of Economic Development as well as hundreds of local organizations and schools.
