Indeed today announced a joint partnership with Goodwill Industries to get 20,000 people across the US jobs. The company is planning for the initiative to begin today on the West Coast, and then expand across the country through the end of October. This Virtual Hiring Tour "consists of a series of virtual Indeed Hiring Events which use Indeed’s proprietary video interviewing technology to remove technical hurdles and speed up the interviewing timeline".
Coupled with the technology infrastructure, product expertise, and marketing provided by Indeed, "Goodwill® will work closely within its communities to ensure that job seekers are aware of and prepared for Indeed’s Virtual Hiring Tour with one-on-one coaching and virtual workshops. Job seekers include people in need of skills training, career counseling and other wraparound support services such as digital skills, as a result of being unemployed, underemployed or facing challenging life transitions."
According to a statement from Indeed CEO Chris Hyams:
“This Virtual Hiring Tour is designed to help people from all backgrounds – essential workers to licensed professionals – quickly find roles, in a way that is safe and effective... We are so grateful to our partner Goodwill for helping us reach job seekers who need extra support so they can take advantage of the opportunities available through the Virtual Hiring Tour.”
