Acorns Launches Job Finder To Help Millions of Americans Find Work and Earn
Over 23 million Americans have lost their job during the pandemic; Acorns is helping them get back to work with access to millions of jobs so they can earn, save, and invest more.
Acorns, the top saving and investing app helping more than 8.2 million Americans save and invest for the future, announced the launch of Acorns Job Finder. Acorns is connecting customers with new career opportunities, helping them earn more money, so that they can save and invest more, all from one app.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the total number of unemployed Americans remains near the same level we saw at the peak of the Great Recession; and, close to 40 million have been impacted overall with reduced hours. To stay afloat, many have started a side hustle to make extra money and meet their financial goals. According to results from an Acorns survey of 2,000 Americans, 34% report they don’t make enough money to meet their financial goals. 66% said ensuring future financial stability is their key motivator for seeking work. 25% indicate they would like to build an emergency savings fund to be better prepared in the future.
