BirdDogHR, Carolinas AGC and CAGC Foundation Join Together to Drive Career Seekers to Jobs in Construction

DES MOINES, Iowa – March 8, 2016 – BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for the construction, engineering and skilled trades industries, the Carolinas AGC and its Foundation, today announced the creation of a Careers Page promoting construction jobs and training opportunities from North and South Carolina in one central location. The new Career Page is part of Carolinas AGC new mobile responsive website. The Career Page (http://carolinasagc.ourcareerpages.com/) offers an easy way for career seekers to locate and apply for jobs and training opportunities in the construction industry.

The new Career Page was launched on December 15, 2015 and is gaining great traction with Carolinas AGC members. This is a no-fee service for Carolinas AGC members that will help them meet the growing workforce challenges facing the industry and the state.

“Our commercial and highway heavy builders offer great paying careers and training opportunities throughout the country. Our construction market is strong and growing, requiring thousands of new people with technical skills,” said Dave Simpson, President & CEO of Carolinas AGC. “Our Career Page is helping to promote members’ jobs and training opportunities to interested career seekers. Plus, it supports our association’s continued effort 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. “More and more educators, parents and students are seeing careers in construction as a viable and rewarding path compared to the high stakes gamble and debt created by four year colleges and universities.” The new Career Page is part of the Carolinas AGC’s PR Campaign for careers in construction. BirdDogHR continues to collaborate with the Associated General Contractors of America and several state chapters like the Carolinas AGC, 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.
