Fifth Third Bank’s eBuses are 40-foot retrofitted city buses that feature Internet connectivity powered by satellite technology. Fifth Third’s eBus I and eBus II travel throughout Fifth Third’s markets to reach individuals and neighborhoods in low- and moderate-income areas that have been traditionally underserved by banks. eBuses provide community members access to professional financial advice and guidance.

Now, in addition to one-on-one credit counseling and financial education, the eBuses offer free access to NextJob’s proprietary job search and training software to all eBus event guests. The Bank and NextJob have previously worked together to offer the homeowner reemployment program to troubled mortgage borrowers, and the Job Seeker’s Toolkit to all Fifth Third customers who bank online and who desire to find a job and or take the next step in their career path.

“The mission of our Financial Empowerment Mobiles is to take quality financial services directly to people and empower them to take control of their financial future,” said Camino Smith, vice president and director of Community and Economic Development, Fifth Third Bank. “Certainly helping people find jobs is foundational to that. Offering the Job Seeker’s Toolkit onboard our buses is a special access pass for people in underserved neighborhoods—frankly, for those who may benefit most.”

Fifth Third Financial Empowerment Mobiles tour year-long through the Bank’s geographic footprint, often in partnership with government and community development and non-profit organizations that help the bank coordinate events in which people can gain assistance—from basic needs events to job fairs to financial education seminars. Tour schedules for both buses are available at the Bank’s financial empowerment website, www.53.com/financial-empowerment.

The Job Seeker’s Toolkit is NextJob’s exclusive and proprietary online job search software. It is a web-based, multi-media program that teaches how to:

  • Create an effective resume, compelling cover letters and a detailed marketing plan
  • Network and find the hidden job market
  • Train and prepare for interviews
  • Assess career direction and transferable skills
  • Develop a personal brand
  • Learn latest techniques to use social media effectively

Once accessed on the eBus, an individual can continue to use the toolkit wherever he/she has access to a computer and the Internet, including at their homes, local libraries or other free Wi-Fi retail locations.
