As construction employers continue to struggle to find enough people to adequately man their job sites, being able to find potential employees quickly and efficiently is an absolute must. Recently, a new platform for construction job seekers and employers has been released nationwide.
Hard Hat Hub (HHH) combines traditional job posting and searching with a bit of an online dating feel. Just like some recent successful dating sites, Hard Hat Hub allows job seekers to have an anonymous profile and employers are able to "unlock" the person's details if they feel a candidate is qualified. The platform has been in testing in the Chicago area and now anyone across the country can use it.
For Job Seekers
Hard Hat Hub allows you to keep your identity semi-anonymous, if you choose. This means that only an email address and phone number will be given to the employer. If you choose yes and are currently still employed, HHH will make sure that your current employer cannot see your profile. When you input your skills, experience, and other information, HHH will match you with potential employers who are looking for people like you, whether you're a Project Manager, Architect, Technician, Skilled Trade, Estimator, or any other construction related role!
It's also 100% free to use.
Most job posting websites are made with the general public in mind, but Hard Hat Hub tailors the job search to the construction industry, letting you know that only the people interested in the field are applying for positions. With this service, you don't even have to create a job posting, you just search for potential candidates and "unlock" the ones that you feel fit with your company. The cost to unlock job seekers is anywhere from $17-31 per credit, depending on the amount of credits you buy.
