Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
Construction Connection announces over 40,000 registered members on their networking website constructionconnection.com. The site features free registration for individuals and companies, personalized support, a patent-pending job-matching system, and the Construction Connection partners. Now, with over 40,000 members, Construction Connection is well on its way to becoming the preeminent place for construction professionals at all levels to get connected.
Two cornerstones of Construction Connection are their job-matching system and their partners program. Their unique job-matching system] takes a different approach than most traditional job forums and sites. Rather than flooding employers’ inboxes with resumes of people whose qualifications may not meet their needs, Construction Connection focuses on the individuals’ skills and experience so that they may find the best candidates for the job. “I like the way Construction Connection’s rating system breaks down candidates’ expertise and scope of work. That was really helpful because it gives you a lot of depth that you would not get from a traditional resume,” said Clint Conrad, the President of MDS Builders of Texas, Inc. and an avid supporter of Construction Connection. Companies can post jobs for subcontractors, project managers, painters, electricians, or any other position they need filled without having to worry about an influx of applicants with no prior experience in the industry.
The partners program is another valuable asset on constructionconnection.com. Partners consist of legal firms, engineers, manufacturers, consultants and many more. The partners are available as resources for Construction Connection members offering their expertise to workers in the industry. Adam Bonsky is the Executive Vice President of Fringe Benefit Group, a new Construction Connection partner and a company dedicated to helping contracting companies working on government projects cut costs while providing healthcare and retirement plans to their employees. Bonsky and his team know the negative effect the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare, will have on companies that do not consult with a bona fide expert in prevailing wage benefit plans. This is why they are excited to offer their expertise to Construction Connection members.
“Being a partner with Construction Connection is great; we really work well together. The partner program is allowing us to further expand our reach and spread our message to subcontractors and builders across the industry,” said Bonsky of the new partnership. By registering and completing a profile with Construction Connection, small and mid-sized companies are able to consult with leaders in the industry with the goal of increasing expertise and profitability. There is no other site dedicated to helping all construction businesses reach their potential.
Kent Leighton, one of the founders of Construction Connection and a veteran of the industry himself, says, “We’re thrilled with the success of the site. The goal of Construction Connection has always been to help people, whether they’re looking for a job, need to hire someone or just want a way to stay connected with other people in the industry. We’re very proud that Construction Connection can be that resource for people, especially small businesses and individuals who don’t have access to it otherwise.” Leighton and the other founders hope that membership will continue to grow, so that they can reach more people and help their businesses flourish.
Construction Connection was created out of a need for a more effective and streamlined way for construction industry professionals to get matched with the right industry jobs and with the right industry opportunities. The partners of Construction Connection, both industry professionals themselves, listened to both company and individuals’ dissatisfaction with the traditional job boards, the paid resume blasts, the overpriced resume services and overall lack of sympathy toward the individual candidate. They listened to the dissatisfaction from companies who post jobs only to get many irrelevant results or having to purchase high priced ads to showcase their company. Construction Connection is a patent-pending, one-of-a-kind profile creating / match-making system. The system delivers effective results. Construction Connection saves you time, money and aggravation by matching people to people, people to companies, companies to people, and company to company.
