Job finding campaign #choosemetuesday takes off!

Job finding campaign #choosemetuesday takes off!

The team at polkadotfrog are always coming up with innovative ways to match suitable candidates with employers – and that could never be more relevant than now – in the midst of the Covid-19 shake up. Here, Emma Cotton, Recruitment Manager explains the extra ways they are helping their candidates in these uncertain times – specifically through their #choosemetuesday campaign.

It’s a simple concept.  We are asking one candidate each week to prepare a video that we can share on all our platforms with the aim of getting them exposure to potential employers and to raise interest in them as a ‘job hunter’.

This is something we are doing to help local people, no strings, no funny business. We are not charging clients our usual fee, if they take these candidates into their teams, it’s free.  We have seen such amazing acts of goodwill and kindness in Suffolk over what must be one of the worst times in all of our lives and we need to keep putting our best foot forward.

Why are we doing this for free? Because it’s the right thing to do. The response from candidates has been amazing, we were worried that people might be reluctant to put themselves out there, in the flesh, on a video, but no, they are very keen and are working really hard with us which has been fantastic.

If you are recruiting take a look – and if you’re not actively hiring we hope you will still take part by liking and sharing our posts. #choosemetuesday
