There’s a new website aimed at helping skilled workers find jobs, reports The Rural Blog. The site, craftforce.com, contains a map function similar to Google maps, where skilled trade workers can locate open positions. The website provides information on available work for machinists, electricians, pipe fitters, tool and dye makes, and crane operators, among others. Craftforce is always free for workers, though employers must pay a monthly fee to post open positions. The company’s CEO noted that with the movement to eat and buy locally, many skilled trade jobs are returning to the US. He added that Craftforce is working with schools and companies to bring jobs to everyone in the country.
The website will soon be profiled on the Discovery Channel’s Innovations.
