SmartRecruiters Helpling Job Seekers During America’s Cup
There’s been a lot made of the jobs numbers that came out yesterday. Regardless of your feelings on the matter, the fact is that there are still 12.1 million people out of work right now. The folks at San Francisco based SmartRecruiters are doing a little something different to help bring that number down.
During the America’s Cup races which are currently going on in San Francisco, they will be pairing unemployed individuals and top executives on their boat, the SmartRecruiters X40. The executives will provide mentoring, coaching and possible job opportunities to these individuals who have been unemployed for six months or longer.
SmartRecruiters Founder/CEO, Jerome Ternynck notes, “It’s worth it though because we are really trying to raise awareness about the job market and encourage executives to get out of their offices and meet people who really need jobs…this is a really fun and relaxing way to bring everyone together.”
Kudos to the Bay area companies for coming up with another innovative way to connect those that are looking for work, with the individuals that can put them to work.
