Zero Unemployment Movement Founder Asks You To Give Labor Sept. 5

Jerome Ternynck, the founder of the Zero Unemployment Movement, is suggesting that Labor Day become “Give Labor Day,” a day when you spend 15 minutes trying to help a friend get a job.

According to a release, “Labor Day has always been a time to remember and celebrate achievement. The United States Department of Labor describes Labor Day’s founding as “a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” However for millions of us, there isn’t labor to celebrate.”

True that. So Ternynck and the ZUM suggest that on Sept. 5, you:

  • Make a referral or introduction
  • Critique a resume
  • Rehearse a mock interview
  • Share relevant job openings
  • Leverage Facebook or LinkedIn connections
  • Help a friend write a cover letter

All good suggestions. But you know what? Why wait until the 5th?
