Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
The Employment Guide®, a division of Dominion Enterprises, has announced the rollout of its expansive “Let's Keep America Moving” jobs initiative, featuring over 40 companies currently recruiting transportation and logistics personnel. Some of the employers hiring include UPS Ground, Sperry Rail, LSG Sky Chefs, and Stevens Transport. Job seekers can browse through over 1,000 employment opportunities from some of the nation’s top employers in the transportation and logistics industries. Available positions include material handling technicians, distribution supervisors, warehouse workers, truck drivers, quality control inspectors, flight attendants, and other professions.
According to the Freight Transportation Research Association, the industry is experiencing an unprecedented labor shortage that analysts predict could reach 800,000 positions in the next two years. By launching this jobs initiative, The Employment Guide not only helps job candidates find meaningful and long-term employment in the transportation sector and beyond, but also supports America in its quest toward economic recovery.
Employers featured in the “Let’s Keep America Moving” jobs initiative will be displayed in mobile, digital, print, and email marketing products of The Employment Guide®. As more companies use technology and online recruitment tools to find talent, this comprehensive effort is right on trend, providing job seekers four ways to connect with employers. The print publication will be available in high-traffic areas in 26 major markets across the country and job listings will be posted on transportation.employmentguide.com. Additionally, nearly 400,000 individuals will be reached through email marketing efforts. The jobs initiative will also offer applicants the convenience of using their mobile device to search and apply for positions with the user-friendly mobile platform, KeepAmericaMoving.mobi.
“During the month of October, we are extremely proud to facilitate the connection between employment opportunities and job seekers in the transportation and logistics industries. This initiative demonstrates our commitment to helping people pursue these viable careers. The transportation industry is one of the fastest growing job sectors within our family of products,” said Chris Baker, vice president and general manager of The Employment Guide.
“Determining our next initiative was an easy decision. After consulting with our customers and industry experts, the existing labor shortages within the transportation and logistics industries confirmed our urgency to connect job seekers and companies currently hiring. These jobs will keep America moving,” said Richard Jones, senior account executive of The Employment Guide.
