If you’re an employer looking for a way to get your recruitment effort going, you might want to give it wheels.

Good Partners, an employment recruiting firm, operates the JobMobile, a 25-foot recreational vehicle that functions as a mobile recruiting office for employers. It also serves as an outreach for job seekers, visiting shopping malls and community events in search of job candidates. The JobMobile’s first excursion was to Star Lake Amphitheater in August, during Lilith Fair.

The JobMobile is a complementary service offered by the JobHouse, the downtown office of Good Partners, which launched operations in August.

“The JobMobile takes the atmosphere of the JobHouse on the road,” says Leslie Bonner, co-founder of the agency and a former vice president and manager of employment at PNC Bank. “It will also be used as an adjunct recruiting office at customer work sites. It’s another way of making the task of finding a job less work.”

Even though it’s been in operation only a few months, the fledgling agency has managed to land clients like UPMC Health System, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance and Servicemaster.
