Captivate Launches Jobs Initiative To Support Massive Layoffs Due To The COVID-19 Pandemic
NEW YORK, New York – April 28, 2020 — Captivate, North America’s leading location-based network, today announced the launch of Candidate Corner – a platform to assist business professionals who have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Job seekers have the opportunity to feature their professional profile across Captivate’s network of office displays reaching thousands of employers in key markets.
The online platform allows candidates to populate their profile with key information such as preferred job title, years of experience, contact information and an elevator pitch for potential hiring managers. The data is then transferred into an on-air ready creative that runs for 2-weeks in the market where applicants seek employment. Additionally, Candidate Corner functions as a hiring source for employers. Those who visit the site can view all participants by market and contact them via email and/or LinkedIn profile.
“With over 20 million people out of work, we had to utilize our network to help those impacted by the pandemic,” said Scott Marden, Chief Marketing Officer at Captivate. “By featuring these profiles on-air, candidates have the ability to standout in a unique way and get in front of ideal employers. We hope this effort can bridge the gap between businesses and job seekers to get as many people as possible back to work.”
