In a move to help local listeners that will surely be met with a mixed reaction in the radio community, CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO launched a new initiative this week to help local listeners who are seeking employment to market their skills and unique features on the air to attract the attention of employers with available positions.
Twenty-one CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO stations across the nation will encourage listeners seeking employment to visit their websites and submit entries via an online form. Each station will choose five entrants per week to record their own 30-second radio resume where they will provide basic personal information and qualifications, and direct interested employers to the station’s website where the entrants’ full resumes will be posted.
"We realize this is a difficult time for many individuals and families and want to support our listeners who are out of work in any way we can," said Pres./CEO JOHN HOGAN. "Radio is all about community and serves as the perfect platform to connect job seekers with employers. We hope that job seeking listeners will take advantage of this special opportunity."
