Skilled Jobs Direct Launches Website - Matching Skilled Craft Workers to Jobs

From: Skilled Jobs Direct LLC
Published: Thu Apr 04 2013

Skilled Jobs Direct launches a website ( focused on directly matching skilled crafts men and women to jobs that best fit them -- based on trades, skills, preferences and other factors. The Skilled Jobs Direct website will go beyond other websites that market to this niche in that jobs will be matched directly to the worker.

The Skilled Jobs Direct process differs from other websites in that the skilled craft worker fills out a profile outlining their trade, skills, professional experience, educational history, preferences and other information such as additional languages, security clearances, etc. and the website automatically finds jobs that match these factors.

Recruiters are able to search from their point of view -- automatically locating skilled craft workers based on trade, skills, work experience, educational level and other information that match jobs that they post.

Recruiters will find the following types of skilled craft workers at the website:

• Boilermaker
• Carpenter
• Concrete Finisher
• Crane / Tower Operator
• Electrician
• Foreman
• Heavy Equipment Operator
• Instrument Technician
• Insulator
• Iron Worker
• Leadman
• Machinist
• Millwright
• Painter / Blaster
• Pipe Welder
• Pipefitter
• Plumber
• Rigger
• Sheet Metal and Plate Fitter
• Structural Fitter
• Structural Welder
• Tower Climber
• Tube Welder
• Welder
• Welding Inspector

In a recent article published by Bloomberg, Stephen Rose, a research professor at the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce in Washington, estimates that 2.2 million jobs are going unfilled because of a mismatch between available positions and qualified workers. The Skilled Jobs Direct website automatically finds jobs that match the skilled craft worker.

Peter Cappelli of Wharton Business School states that companies want "people who can plug and play". The Skilled Jobs Direct website meets this need in that the website pairs job seekers with the jobs that best fit their criteria.

The website has been launched as of today at 9:00am Central Time. Skilled Jobs Direct is currently looking for Job Seekers, Recruiters and Advertisers to participate in the completely FREE Beta testing of the website. Skilled Jobs Direct Standard Membership is ABSOLUTELY FREE FOR JOB SEEKERS AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
