2020 has been an extremely challenging year for jobseekers and employers. The U.S. job market has been decimated by the coronavirus crisis, and despite some signs that a recovery may be on the horizon, the picture in September 2020 remains bleak. We are experiencing one of the biggest economic slumps in living memory; 14.8 million Americans remain unemployed, hiring activity has collapsed by up to 50% and competition for jobs has intensified across the country.
Many jobseekers, workers and businesses are facing anxious weeks ahead and we want to do everything we can to bring people together and Get America Working. Whether that’s helping people find work faster, providing quality advice to the newly unemployed or harnessing the power of technology to match jobseekers to jobs, help is at hand and the whole team at Adzuna is motivated to make a difference.
To that end, our goal is to help 100,000 people get into work that wouldn’t have done otherwise.
Ambitious, but this is why we get up in the morning.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be doubling down our effort to stimulate hiring and help Americans find work. From the individual jobseeker looking for job hunting tips during the pandemic, to launching new hiring, data and content partnerships across the country. We believe that the job market recovery from this recession has the opportunity to be different to previous financial crises. Businesses like Adzuna have the technology to analyse data, help people make smarter decisions and tools to connect jobseekers to jobs like never before. The hiring landscape in U.S. is changing so rapidly that this data and the need to embrace technology is more crucial than ever before. Our mission is to be part of this national comeback story and to serve our industry as best we can to help America get back to work.
