Fifth Third Bank partners with NextJob to offer free career assistance

August 26, 2020

Fifth Third Bank is making its NextJob Job Seekers Toolkit available to the public through January 2021 to assist those who are seeking jobs, either temporarily or permanently, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fifth Third initiated the partnership with NextJob, a nationwide reemployment solutions company, in 2012 to launch the program to assist individuals facing mortgage hardship due to job loss. In 2016, an enhanced version of the program became part of the Bank’s five-year, $32 billion Community Commitment.

The NextJob toolkit, which previously had exclusively been offered to Fifth Third customers, is now being offered to the public through the Bank’s Workforce Development Program. It is an educational resource for those looking to enter the job market or secure a different job opportunity. It offers lessons and video advice from job-search experts, hiring managers and job seekers, as well as additional tools and activities. The information focuses on career literacy topics such as transferable skills, resume writing, networking, interviewing tips and how to use social media to land hidden jobs.

Fifth Third and NextJob are also expanding its Toolkit offerings to help community partners and their job seekers through job coaching scholarships and virtual workshops covering topics such as job search strategies during hard economic times.
