Acorns App Launches Job Finder Powered By ZipRecruiter

Those seeking a side hustle, additional part-time job, or new career now have another resource for finding available positions. This week, the micro-investing app Acorns unveiled a new job finder tool, with listings powered by ZipRecruiter. To find this feature, users will first want to navigate to the “Earn more money” section (formerly “Found Money”) and then tap the “Earn from a new job” banner near the top of the screen.

Once in the “Find a job” tab, users will notice listings broken down into various sections. For example, the app may list work-from-home jobs, seasonal positions, jobs that don’t require prior experience, and more. Meanwhile, further down on the page, job seekers will find a series of articles related to finding a new career or growing in your current position.

Coinciding with the new feature, Acorns also intends to host a virtual job fair. On October 29th, the FinTech will hold its first Acorns Career Day, featuring special guests who will discuss tips and tactics for everything from discovering new career opportunities to knocking interviews out of the park. Although reservations to join the event on Zoom are full, those wishing to view the stream can do so by visiting the Acorns Career Day site.

Previously, Acorns had featured various side hustle opportunities that also gave users the chance to earn extra investment cash. For example, those who signed up to become an Instacart shopper through the Acorns app could earn a $25 bonus that would be added to their account’s investment balance. These offers are still available but now reside in the job finder tab.

Reflecting on how the new feature fits into Acorns larger vision, CEO Noah Kerner said in a statement, “Acorns has always empowered people with tools to save, invest and achieve financial wellness. Now through Jobs, we’re helping Americans find work so they can achieve their financial goals.” Kerner concluded, “When you earn more, you save and invest more.”

Obviously Acorns Jobs tool arrives at a time when many Americans are reassessing their careers and financial needs. Therefore, while it may seem somewhat out of left field for an investment app to focus on employment, it could be just what users need to help them get back on course. Additionally, the move helps position Acorns not just as a novelty investing tool but as an all-around financial hub for Millennials and beyond. For that reason, the app continues to be one to watch in the world of FinTech.
