As New Yorkers, we are all too familiar with that deep-seeded feeling of dread that inevitably comes with a new job search. (And if you’re not? Well, we both envy and despise you.) One of the toughest parts of looking for a job is the sense you’re going at it alone, with no support. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone were there to provide a shoulder for you to lean on?
In the video below, Katrina tells us how she’s receiving job search assistance from an unexpected source – her bank.
As her story shows, Katrina wants to serve in a field that helps people; Fifth Third Bank is doing just that for her. When she lost her job and was in danger of losing her new home as well, they could have turned their backs. Instead, they stepped up and connected her with NextJob, a company that provides resources for job seekers. With the help of Fifth Third, Katrina is holding on to her home and is well on her way to finding a new position.
We hope you’re as inspired as we are by Katrina’s experience with Fifth Third.
