BirdDogHR, Idaho AGC Education Foundation Join Together to Drive Career Seekers to Jobs in Construction

DES MOINES, Iowa – December 10, 2015 – BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for the construction, engineering and skilled trades industries, and the Idaho AGC Education Foundation, today announced the creation of an Employment Page promoting jobs and training opportunities in the Construction Industry. The new Employment Page is part of “We Build Idaho” – a website educating the community on careers in construction (http://www.webuildidaho.org). This site offers an easy way for career seekers to locate and apply for jobs in the construction industry.

The new Employment Page was launched on November 9, 2015. This is a no-fee service for Idaho AGC members that will help them meet the growing workforce challenges facing the industry and the state.

“The construction industry is coming back in Idaho,” said Wayne Hammon, CEO of Idaho AGC. “Our Employment page is helping to promote members’ jobs to interested career seekers. Plus, it plays a role in educating individuals on the viability of careers in construction.”

“The construction industry provides great security and rewarding career choices,” said Bryan May, VP of Business Development at BirdDogHR. “The problem is most educators, parents and students have lost touch with the career paths offered by the industry. The Idaho AGC’s Education Foundation is launching a PR campaign for careers in construction. It is great for Idaho and the Construction industry.” BirdDogHR continues to collaborate with the Associated General Contractors of America and several state chapters like Idaho, helping their members find future workers and close the skills gap through software and services designed to help recruit, engage, assess, develop, and retain the people they need now and in the future.
