Workbank Partners with Canva to Enable Job Seekers Create Powerful Resumes
With its commitment to investing in job seekers, Workbank, a job site founded on malasakit or compassion and care, establishes partnerships that will give users access to free trainings and seminars.
Workbank partners with design platform, Canva, to give free and exclusive trainings that will empower job seekers to create resumes with simple but professional-looking designs.
Canva is an online tool and mobile app that enables users to design and publish anytime, anywhere through its simple drag-and-drop feature, built-in layouts, and intuitive controls.
“Unlike in the past, job seekers today don’t have to go through the tedious manual searching on newspapers’ classified ads and walking-in to offices to drop their CVs. With everything online these days, it’s very easy to submit your resume. The real challenge is catching the eye of the recruiter,” shares Reggie Fernandes, Country Head of Workbank.
“The fast-paced evolution of the ever-growing online job matching industry also means an increased number of competitions. We are partnering with Canva Philippines to hold workshops for job seekers hoping to equip them in their job search. They will learn how to design powerful resumes that will stand out from the pile. Filipino talents have so much potential and we want to help them translate this into resumes that are worth a second look,” Fernandes added.
Job seekers can access free and exclusive trainings with Canva after completing their profile on Workbank. Other trainings are also posted on Workbank’s website, and all the applicant has to do is invest their time by registering and showing up.
“We believe in the Filipino talent. We want to provide them with resources that will help alleviate some of the pressures and pains of job application. Filipino workers have the drive to succeed, and we would like to encourage them to take advantage of these training opportunities that can give them an edge among their peers,” said Fernandes.
