There's a new online service that could help people who have lost their job due to coronavirus
We live in uncertain times, folks.
The spread of the coronavirus has led to unprecedented business closures, mass financial concern, and of course, job losses.
In Ireland, it has been estimated the outbreak will lead to approximately 350,000 job losses across the country, eventually bringing the unemployment rate up to 18 percent.
For those who have already lost their jobs, the hunt for work has already began - as thousands of people take to social media, recruitment agencies, and job search platforms to share their talent and drive with new potential employers.
In a bid to make the search for new work in such confusing and uncertain times that bit less daunting, the guys over at Jobbio this week launched a new online service to help those who have lost their jobs, or are struggling to find relevant work, due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
It's called BounceBack, and it's an easy, no frills way of getting involved in a community of other people who are in the same situation.
"BounceBack will have access to thousands of brilliant jobs, and will share the relevant ones with people that sign up as they go live, so that they can apply and bounce back as quickly as possible," they say.
"There’s no need to create a login, build a profile and go through a process. You simply fill in your name, email address, industry of choice and location."
Then, when a relevant job becomes available that would suit your skills and interests, you'll be notified as soon as.
Easy enough, in fairness.
