The Job Seeker’s Toolkit is NextJob’s exclusive and proprietary online job search software. It is a web-based, multi-media program that facilitates interactive learning through nine job search modules. The Bank is offering the toolkit at no charge to its Internet banking customers, including checking and savings account holders and those with other types of borrowing or investment relationships with the Company.

“Our relationship with NextJob continues to provide unique benefits for our customers,” said Steven Alonso, executive vice president and head of the Consumer Bank, Fifth Third Bancorp. “Our homeowner reemployment initiative is an outreach effort to distressed mortgage borrowers to help them find their next career and avoid foreclosure. Now, this phase II effort enables us to offer a key component of that homeowner reemployment program—the online job search assistance—to a much broader audience, and therefore, help more people gain financial security.”

The Job Seeker’s Toolkit is a customized program that includes video interviews with job search experts, job seekers and hiring managers thereby providing learning examples from real-life hiring experiences. All aspects of a successful job search are included:
  • Creating an effective resume, compelling cover letters and a detailed marketing plan
  • Best job board aggregators and leads
  • Networking and the hidden job market
  • Interview training and preparation
  • Assessing career direction and transferable skills
  • Follow-up to support success in the new job
  • Building a 30-second commercial
  • Developing a personal brand
  • Learning the latest techniques to use social media effectively to find and land jobs

The toolkit is accessible to Fifth Third online customers from within Fifth Third Bank’s Internet Banking site at Once registered, Internet banking customers will be able to access the training for 39 weeks. After initial registration, customers can access the training from any computer at Fifth Third customers will be able to work at their own pace to develop or strengthen their job search skills.

“Fifth Third Bank has taken another step forward to help its customers,” said John Courtney, CEO of NextJob. “They were innovative with the offering of the homeowner reemployment program by reaching out to their mortgage customers who had lost jobs or suffered an income reduction. Now they are giving more of their customers an opportunity to gain employment or find more meaningful careers by offering, at no cost, comprehensive, top quality online job search assistance. We are thrilled to have this relationship with a financial institution that is always curious about what more it can do to improve the lives of their customers and communities.
