With the shortage of skilled welders, the welding community needs a site like this to bring everyone together
Yuma, AZ (PRWEB) October 21, 2007
A new site designed to give a boost to the welding industry has been officially launched. HireWelders.com will offer worldwide information about welding jobs and welding education in an effort to develop a stronger link between the two. Created to help ease the difficulty in finding qualified welders, the site promises to offer those seeking welders, welding jobs, welding education, or welding students a single place to find what they need.
"With the shortage of skilled welders, the welding community needs a site like this to bring everyone together," states site developer and hobby welder, Shane Turner. According to American Welding Society (AWS) statistics, there will be a projected shortfall of skilled welders in the U.S. of more than 200,000 by the year 2010.
Employers will recognize immediately that this site has been designed with them in mind. With the ability to search for candidates who are proficient in the welding process or processes they need, have a work authorization for a particular country, or even speak a particular language, employers will be able to source welders for their welding jobs with more efficiency and lower cost. They'll also have the ability to manage their vacancies, process applications, and view statistics on the openings that they list with the site. To give employers an opportunity to try it out risk free, HireWelders.com will be offering free 60-day job postings to employers for a limited time.
"Companies seeking welders will be pleasantly surprised by the tools that they have in this site. They were developed in direct conversation with people in the welding industry, and that's what makes HireWelders.com a welding job site instead of a job site with welding openings," Turner states.
"We need more individuals to get interested in welding and they need to be able to find information about welding education easily," Turner states. As a result, the site offers a free venue for educators to share information about their programs as well as an interactive map where visitors can find welding programs around the world. Welding educators are invited to submit information regarding their school including program descriptions, courses offered, photos, videos, etc. to the site.
