Charlotte, North Carolina, USA – April 13, 2021 – With the onset of COVID-19 and its effect on the job market since early 2020, many job seekers sought assistance from career services professionals/companies to help them stand out from a large crowd. Unemployment numbers began to exceed those of the 2008 recession, which caused panic and a sense of uncertainty according to Pew Research. Remaining cognizant of the job seeker’s financial and mental health, and need for food on the table in these trying times, a newer player on the scene has and continues to change lives in droves!
“Combining feelings of uncertainty with a sole focus on the problem with no solution is a recipe for disaster”, says Kurtis Tompkins, Owner of Jobready2dey, Charlotte, NC. After celebrating their 4th anniversary on March 29th, 2021, Kurtis reflects on his company’s journey and flight through the stormy clouds of this pandemic. In June of 2019, Jobready2dey started an initiative to assist struggling job seekers dubbed “$1 Wednesday’s”, where folks in need could get a variety of career services for just $1! While the concept seemed too good to be true, this initiative changed the lives of so many around the world, which makes Kurtis very proud!
The need for programs like this became evident more so once the pandemic hit the U.S. in early 2020. Furloughs and layoffs were etched in our vocabulary, and the hope for a positive outcome seemed to decrease daily as reported by Forbes. What was the job seeker to do? The team at Jobready2dey, with Kurtis at the helm, rolled up their sleeves and jumped into action. Combining their Wednesday initiative with free resume workshops, free career eBooks, no-cost consultations, and more, Jobready2dey helped put a dent into what the Bureau of Labor Statistics calls The Employment Situation Summary.
Knowing how to play the game, as Kurtis calls it, is essential to success in your job search during or in the absence of a pandemic. No wonder Jobready2dey is known for having and sharing the playbook for success with each client. Congratulations to Jobready2dey for celebrating their 4th anniversary and for making a difference, especially during this pandemic!
