Across the globe. Full-time, part-time, and freelance work is being lost at an exponential pace.

Traditional job-hunting mechanisms have failed us often in the past — during both good and bad times. Now, during this time of great urgency, they will fail us again.

At Torre, we are devastated by the current crisis. Individually and collectively, we’ve received countless requests from friends and family for work opportunities. We’re getting more and more calls every day.

Our commitment is to help as many people as we can — and to do so quickly.

We’re announcing a series of — free — viral job hunting functionalities over the next few weeks, and we’re looking for volunteers who use our technology to help their local communities.

COVID-19 has forced millions of people to work remotely all of a sudden. Millions more have been fired. If you’re an experienced remote worker or remote leader, you can help others by mentoring them. We are launching this effort to help the community at scale by matching you with a person you can help. You can volunteer as little as 30 minutes.

Would you consider giving/receiving coaching or mentoring virtually? If yes, please sign-up at https://remoter.typeform.com/to/qAuxNx

Stay safe,

I’ve been working remotely for almost two decades. The companies I’ve either founded or co-founded are currently all remote-first. I’ve truly realized the benefits of this work-lifestyle.

I have people on my teams from all over the world. We work hard and our creative problem-solving skills become so much stronger with all the perspectives brought to the table.
