Adote um CV seeks to increase the visibility of resumes of professionals laid off because of the pandemic

Performed by: Rodrigo Chiesa + Paulo Silva

Country: Brazil

Launched in April 2020, Adote um CV (Adopt a CV, translated litteraly) aims to help Brazilians who have lost their jobs during the Coronavirus pandemic to find a new job. The idea is for a person to ‘adopt’ a curriculum available on the site of a professional looking for a job, and share it on their social networks, helping to give visibility to the CV and increasing the chances of the professional to be hired.

The non-profit initiative, developed by Rodrigo Chiesa and Paulo Silva, consolidates information from spreadsheets publicly released on Linkedin, of professionals who were dismissed from their jobs due to the current scenario.
