The Coronavirus Unemployment Resource Center, a state based online resource center launched by GigSmart, strives to make American lives impacted by COVID-19 easier by helping them to find information on unemployment insurance, healthcare benefits and financial aids. As the states transition from their coronavirus protective measures, the staffing solution company for the gig economy, GigSmart helps fulfill the increased demand for workers needed in warehousing, construction and landscaping.

The resource center provides state specific detailed information on the coronavirus stimulus package, the CARES Act and more. Apart from that it instantly connects interested individuals to available resources in their respective states. The resource center also assists them with instructions on filing for unemployment benefits, rent assistance or accessing mortgage.

Rich Oakes, President of GigSmart stated “With a record 20.5 million Americans impacted by job loss in April, we want to help those who need financial assistance easily access all available resources and information offered by their state.” He further added that the center while providing access to relevant and critical information on reliefs and measures by their state of residency, gives them access to open hourly gigs and hiring opportunities in and around their vicinity by the use of Get Gigs App.

With the launch of GigSmart’s Get Gigs App in Dec 2018, available in all 50 states, the staffing solution company has been growing ever since. Its skills based matching engine provides local opportunities to its 170,000+ users. Now the launch of the unemployment resource center acts as an extension to its dynamic and diverse portfolio of staffing solutions. 

The two sided staffing platform allows businesses to source temporary labor with over 3,000 different skill-sets through Get Workers app and individuals on the other hand can access local, scheduled or on demand gigs as well as full time/part time job opportunities across varied industries via Get Gigs mobile app. It also provides real time notification of any open jobs to its users.
