The new resource comes on the heels of the May launch aimed at connecting Black community members with jobs on the CareerBuilder site that provide stability, important benefits, and a higher income.
CHICAGO, July 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CareerBuilder announced a new career coaching service that will provide Black Information Network (BIN) listeners with a free 45-minute coaching session. This comes following the announcement that CareerBuilder joined forces with BIN: Black Information Network to launch the 100,000 Careers platform created to connect 100,000 BIN listeners who are looking to advance their careers with current and future employers.
As part of this initiative, job seekers now have access to personalized career guidance via a complimentary coaching session to help unlock their professional potential. The offering provides the chance for BIN listeners to meet with an expert within their industry and receive individually tailored advice and actionable feedback to help promote their career growth. During the one-on-one session, job seekers can ask questions, identify strengths, and work to define a career path that fits their needs. Participants will receive an individualized report that includes actionable advice and a video recording following the online session.
"We see the value and unlimited potential of Black workers and are thrilled to offer this hyper-customized experience in hopes that the community will receive practical feedback relevant to their industry to help them either find a job filled with purpose or grow into their current role," said Kristin Kelley, Chief Marketing Officer at CareerBuilder. "Careers start with mentors and support which is why expert coaching is one of the many ways that the 100,000 Careers initiative can transform the way job seekers find a role."
The free service is meant to help individuals leverage their skills and overcome professional challenges. Exclusively offered to BIN listeners, job seekers will be matched with more than 5,000 coaches available using AI technology and responses from an initial questionnaire.
"The Black Information Network and CareerBuilder are committed to giving job seekers the tools and resources they need to stand out from the crowd," said Tony Coles, Division President for iHeartMedia Multiplatform Group and President for BIN: Black Information Network. "These sessions help match job seekers and experts to help you prepare for your interview. We are excited to offer this service to get one step closer to helping 100,000 listeners find the career of their dreams."
Other useful tools in the program include job listings, resume building tips, as well as CoLab where job seekers can maximize their earning potential and achieve desired schedule flexibility.
