"On one side, there are a lot of individuals dealing with recent lay-offs and furloughs. Things have happened so quickly that many of these folks are still processing, not aware of what jobs are available, or have never had to work remotely before. On the other hand, many overwhelmed employers need help in necessary services – healthcare, logistics and warehousing, supply chains, customer service, grocery, delivery, etc. Frankly, this is why Jobcase exists. Our community is built to empower all workers and the employers they support. So, along with surfacing more work-from-home jobs, we want Jobcase's virtual hiring event product to help everyone during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond," added he.
