With so many means of finding employment, job seekers are apt to get overwhelmed. Fifth Third Bank is offering a free online toolkit
to assist in the struggle of job hunting as part of its Reemployment
campaign. It’s free for everyone, not just Fifth Third customers.
"The campaign makes online job training modules available to any job seeker who wants to freshen up their job search skills," says Maria Veltre, Fifth Third Bank's chief marketing officer. "The 'Job Seekers Toolkit' from NextJob
, which is typically reserved for Fifth Third customers, includes useful resume, job search and interview preparation tips for job seekers."
This campaign highlights three different individuals who have a common goal: finding work.
"Through our Reemployment campaign," Veltre adds, "we are working with three real-life unemployed job seekers who are willing to put themselves really out there, in hopes of shedding light on what unemployment is really like."
The videos feature Katrina Holmes
, Elba Pena
and Bill Laakkonen
"Every time one of their stories is shared via social media, their virtual network will expand, Veltre says. Additionally, "retweets to reemploy
" will also help fund one-on-one coaching for other unemployed job seekers. "For every 53 retweets, Fifth Third and Next Job will fund a scholarship for the one-on-one job coaching for one deserving individual, up to 53 total scholarships."
