GetMeBackToWork.com Flips Job Board Model On Its Head & Gains Rapid Acceptance
Recruitment Platform For Hourly Wage Workers offering new process for the 12.7 million unemployed to get back to work
While most online job boards and applications are focused on the professional and corporate arena, the GetMeBackToWork.com model focuses on getting the American worker, the hourly wage earner, back to work. Today the hourly wage worker faces a hiring process that is archaic at best. Riddled with paper applications, hit or miss classified ads, and job boards that require an application for each job opportunity, the hourly wage workforce and its hiring managers are desperate for a better way. GetMeBackToWork.com allows the hourly wage worker to apply one time to a universal application, so they can be found by hiring managers searching for candidates on the platform. Hiring managers are able to search for candidates by keywords such as industry, shift and location, empowering hiring managers with rapid access to candidates.
“We are facing a crisis in this country. We have 12.7 million unemployed people – many of which are hourly wage earners. At the same time, we regularly hear from hiring managers that can not find candidates to hire, or good matches for their positions and are often dealing with turnover rates close to 400%,” said Shannon Scott, CEO of GetMeBackToWork.com. “Just yesterday, I spoke to an hourly worker, Lori, registered on our site. This was a young single mother who was struggling to find a job. She is down to her last dollar and unemployment is just not helping. She walks around 3 miles a day (sometimes with kids in tow) knocking on doors trying to find a job because she would rather save money for food instead of gas. This is a woman with a college degree and 12 years in the restaurant business. I hear these stories and it has made this business turn into a personal mission,” he said.
We want to invite every hard working American in all states, seeking nursing jobs, trucking jobs, clerical jobs, security jobs, janitorial jobs, cashier jobs, restaurant jobs, and hospitality jobs to join our movement and platform by registering today at www.GetMeBackToWork.com. There are no costs to apply and in less than 7 minutes hourly wage earners can make themselves visible to countless hiring managers without individual job posts and ads.
GetMeBackToWork was created to simplify the process between connecting employers with potential job candidates in hourly wage worker dependent industries. Through an innovative platform, GetMeBackToWork.com allows hiring managers to search for candidates using custom keyword criteria, and hourly wage earners to break the cycle of having to fill out paper applications and repeatedly apply to job posts.
