Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Construction Connection, the online construction hiring and networking resource, announces over 56,000 individuals and construction companies have registered on their website at ConstructionConnection.com. Along with its far-reaching network of over 100,000 construction industry professionals on social media, including over 7,000 members in their LinkedIn group, the site strives to be the foremost resource for all members of the construction community by providing education through their blog and toolbox talks, job-matching services, and access to industry leaders from across the country.
“We are so proud to reach this new milestone,” says Kent Leighton, one of the Co-Founders of the site. “Having more registered users on the site, means we can connect more people, help individuals find the right construction jobs, help construction companies grow, and ultimately work toward our mission of building a stronger construction industry.”
A cornerstone of Construction Connection is its unique, one-of-a-kind job-matching tool, specific to the industry. While other systems focus heavily on resumes and simple applications, Construction Connection features a patent-pending method that matches in-depth individual profiles with applicable and relevant available construction jobs. This allows construction companies to be matched with applicants whose skills and experience match their needs, rather than having to sift through countless resumes of unqualified individuals.
Besides its career services, Construction Connection also offers access to a variety of valuable resources that can help job applicants expand their skills. Tools include a preeminent online education website, the Everything DiSC Workplace Profile, which assess individual’s communication and behavioral styles to build stronger teams, and the Prove It! by IBM tests, assessments that determine a candidate’s skill level on specific software. These are just three of the resources designed to help applicants show employers their level of competence.
Construction Connection has also partnered with industry experts as a resource for construction company owners. Their partners include construction software developers, prevailing wage compliance and benefit consultants, MEP engineers, attorneys specializing in construction law, and Consulting Simplified™, a highly successful construction consulting program with a proven track record of impacting companies’ profitability and changing people’s live.

About Construction Connection
ConstructionConnection.com 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 founders 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 also listened to the dissatisfaction from companies who post jobs only to get many irrelevant results or have 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 time, money and aggravation by matching people to people, people to companies, companies to people, and company to company.
