Partnership between two community leaders provides additional platform for awareness and engagement for companies and jobseekers in Calgary, across Alberta, and to all AMP’s listeners.
CALGARY, January 19, 2016 – Newcap radio station AMP Radio 90.3FM and WeEmploy Inc. today announced a collaboration aimed at revitalizing the job sector and bringing recruitment services even closer to companies and jobseekers.
“This alliance reflects AMP Radio’s focus on engaging its listeners and providing the support they need to advance their careers,” says Al Tompson, Operations Manager of Newcap Calgary. “Our partnership with WeEmploy goes beyond the traditional paid advertising service and puts our listeners’ needs at the center, particularly in this economic climate.”
The year-long employment initiative will see AMP Radio address challenges in job searching, and promote job availabilities from WeEmploy. Knowledge and resources will be shared on air and published across both AMP Radio and WeEmploy’s web presence.
WeEmploy plans to bring similar collaborative models to other interested media partners, nationally and globally.
“WeEmploy is always working to close the gap between jobseekers and companies. This new partnership aligns with our values and we’re excited to deliver our services to AMP Radio’s listeners,” says Steve Mix, CEO & Co-Founder of WeEmploy Inc.
Jobseekers can browse active job openings on a dedicated WeEmploy page on AMP Radio, which is also linked to WeEmploy’s jobs and community websites. They can also create a WeEmploy profile to access the over 600 live job and volunteer posts.
Companies looking to hire can subscribe for a flat flee and gain unlimited access to candidate profiles, and post an unlimited number of jobs on the network. The project includes AMP Radio’s interaction app, where users can receive regular updates.
This joint-effort was sparked by AMP Radio’s DJ Kav (Calgary’s DJ), when he discovered that WeEmploy is centered around creating meaningful connections and goodwill in the community. WeEmploy provides service free of charge to charities and not-for-profit organizations, and encourages jobseekers to sharpen their skills by volunteering. WeEmploy has so far helped 85 charities, in Canada and the US.
