DES MOINES, Iowa – March 24, 2015 – BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for construction, engineering and skilled trades, and the Nebraska Chapter of Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) today announced the creation of a new career site targeted at professionals and newcomers interested in pursuing jobs in the highway construction industry. The Career Page at http://www.agcne.org offers an easy way for Nebraskans to locate and apply for jobs in the construction industry, follows on the heels of Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts plans to create and grow “Good-Paying” jobs in Nebraska. The new Construction Career Page was launched to members on February 18 at the Nebraska Chapter AGC annual convention. The Construction Career Page is a no-fee service for Nebraska Chapter AGC members that will help them meet the growing workforce challenges facing the industry.
“The AGC members offer great career opportunities in the heavy highway, road, bridge and underground utilities industries throughout Nebraska,” said Katie Wilson, Executive Vice President for the Nebraska Chapter of AGC. “Our industry faces an uphill battle with the retirements of baby boomers over the next 5-10 years. This new Construction Career Page creates a great opportunity for our contractors, suppliers and engineering firms to introduce their job opportunities to the next generation of worker that starts their career search on the internet. The new Construction Career Page will help us meet this future demand by connecting skilled talent with growing companies.”
“Over the next 10 years, the construction industry will need to fill over 3 million jobs that require only a high school degree,” said Bryan May, VP of Business Development at BirdDogHR. “These are well paid jobs with great growth opportunities. We look forward to working with the Nebraska Chapter of AGC and the Associated Contractors of America to close the gap through blended, end-to-end talent management software and services for recruiting, onboarding, performance, learning and succession.”
