Everyone knows that finding a job is difficult. But did you know that about 50% of all jobs are not even posted online?* I sure didn't. And for every job that is out there, about 200 people apply to it and only about 2% of those people are actually chosen for an interview**. Knowing just that little bit of information could have saved me a lot of extra time being stressed out and absolutely exhausted after searching and applying to jobs. This is why I need job search coaching. And that is where Fifth Third Bank comes in.
What Does A Bank Have To Do With Job Searching?
Fifth Third Bank has everything to do with job searching–especially for those who are new graduates! As the curious bank, Fifth Third wondered, “could a bank help graduates promote themselves and find jobs?” So this bank has decided to give away $1 million in expert job search coaching (about $1,000 per person) to help new graduates find their dream jobs faster than ever. Eighty winners will be chosen per week to work with NextJob, a national employment assistance firm that helps people find a rewarding career up to 3x faster every single year. They even find jobs that are not online! Coaches help job seekers refine their resumes and social media profile in order to increase their chances of getting that interview. Once the interview is scheduled, NextJob then provides coaches to prepare you for it.
And do not worry about setting up a time and place to meet up with your coach, it is all virtual! Here's a short list of everything a coach helps you achieve with their services:
- Interview prep/coaching
- Help finding the 50% of jobs not listed online
- Personalized resume editing
- Career testing & personality testing to help identify even more opportunities
- Creations of enhanced LinkedIn and Twitter Profiles
- Access to NextJob’s proprietary online training toolkit.
