Clear Channel Radio (CCR) has launched a new initiative to help local listeners who are seeking employment to market their skills on the air in an effort to attract the attention of employers with available positions.
Twenty-one CCR stations will encourage listeners seeking employment to visit their Web sites and submit entries via an online form. Each station will choose five entrants per week to record their own thirty-second radio resume where they will be able provide basic personal information and qualifications, and direct interested employers to the station's Web site 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," CCR president/CEO John Hogan says. "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."
The 21 CCR stations taking part in the initiative include:
