Construction Connection announces that over 30,000 people have joined the online construction community at ConstructionConnection.com, continuing the network’s accelerated growth in 2012. Construction Connection seeks to be the premier resource for networking, education, and job matching services within the construction industry. The Construction Connection site offers individual members and company members the chance to get connected through job matching, social media, blogging, Toolbox Talks, and company-to-company connections with their vendor services program.
In addition to their flourishing membership base, Construction Connection boasts 32,000 subscribers to their e-newsletter, nearly 3,000 people in their LinkedIn group, and approximately 1,700 Twitter followers. This vast web of connections fuels Construction Connection’s primary goal of building an online community for the entire construction industry, from the corporate level to the individual tradesman.
Two focal points for Construction Connection are the free National Directory company listings and their patent-pending job matching system. The National Directory promotes the online presence and industry expertise of small to mid-size construction companies, an especially useful tool to those businesses lacking a web site or online marketing plan. Construction Connection’s unique, industry-specific job matching system has delivered consistently successful results in connecting qualified, experienced construction professionals to well-matched company job postings.
Kent Leighton, a founding partner of Construction Connection expressed his enthusiasm for the continued growth of the site: “Our original vision for Construction Connection was for it to be the preeminent authority and community for the construction industry. By registering our 30,000th user, we are well on our way to becoming the most relevant and informative online community for the entire construction industry. By surrounding ourselves with industry experts we consistently deliver applicable educational content, create countless B2B opportunities, and match industry professionals and tradesmen to employment opportunities that help get our industry back to work. We are most proud of being able to help individuals, families, and companies navigate these tough economic times through resources like our blog, e-newsletters, Construction Connection LinkedIn Group, and free career counseling by telephone.”
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.
