Putting America Back to Work w/Dr. Drew

Here’s a little bit of fun we’ve been having lately – all the while lending a hand to those in the community who needed it.  We’re proud to be a part of this initiative!

Dr. Drew Surprises a Whole Studio Audience of Unemployed Viewers With a Job
on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers airing February 13th at 3:00pm ET/PT on The CW

Every single unemployed studio audience member’s life will be changed when Dr. Drew surprises them with the gift that will forever alter the course of their lives…a good JOB! With the unemployment rate looming near 9% last year, Dr. Drew and the show wanted to pursue what the show was created to do – CHANGE LIVES! So began a three-month long mission to try and help our unemployed viewers by creating a giant initiative we called “Putting America Back to Work”. We partnered with LinkedIn to find a dozen companies looking for qualified candidates, and did a shout out to viewers looking for work.

Ten thousand resumes later, we created an intimate Job Fair that allowed company reps to do face-to–face interviews with hundreds of hand-picked job seekers. From a struggling Marine Corp veteran who almost lost his family in the horrific earthquake in Chile, on the brink of sending his family back to South America because he could no longer support them, to a young stroke survivor with Autism who had sent out more than 150 resume without a single call back, to a homeless woman who had been living in her car with her two children, our audience was filled with unemployed viewers who thought they were coming back for a second interview, and to watch a taping of Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers that was “supposed to” put a face on the unemployed in America.  Tune in to watch as they get the surprise of a lifetime as Dr. Drew announces to his unknowing audience filled with applicants – YOU’RE ALL HIRED!!

More than $2 million in annual salaries will be paid this year to these “Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers” viewers who are now gainfully employed!

Dr. Drew – “This audience is filled with people that have gone through our interview process because of the job fair…many get to this point and never get that job. I’m getting anxious just thinking about you guys but I know something you don’t know, you’re hired, you’re hired, you’ve all been HIRED!”
