PROVO, Utah — In direct relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment rates have risen dramatically. Current unemployment rates vary from 5.1% to 17.4% across the nation. As unemployment numbers increase, the United States economy has suffered. One of the nation’s largest job searches in history is currently underway.
On August 13-14 the #GetHired Summit will be holding its 2nd virtual summit. Attendance at the first Summit exceeded 5,000. Registration is free and can be completed here. There will be thousands of job opportunities from the Summit sponsor companies, including over 600 positions at Vivint Smart Home alone.
CEO of Mentorli, Luke Mocke, the creator of the #GetHiredSummit has said, “This is the worst US unemployment crisis in a hundred years and we’ve vowed to be a part of the solution. We’re uniting the right employers, voices, and opportunities under one roof to make sure folks can get back to work as soon as possible.”
Diversity is a major focus for the summit. Partners like the Utah Black Chamber, Utah Women in Sales, Diversity Career Fair, and RevRoad are working together to ensure the summit is inclusive and creates an equal playing field for underrepresented talent. #GetHired Summit leadership believe that the combination of layoffs and rising remote work present an unprecedented opportunity for employers to rebuild their organization in a representative way.
The #GetHired Summit will be held virtually. For more information visit the #GetHired Summit website https://www.gethiredsummit.com.
