Job Seeker’s survey regarding trades employment methods have found that between 30% and 70% of craft hired on a project are referenced based. This astonishing finding has raised an interesting question:

“Is finding your next job as a trades person based on who you know?”

TradesCraft founders and associates are senior and experienced personnel in the construction, industrial and manufacturing fields. The analogy that was conducted at the creation of TradesCraft was based on: What do employers want when they hire a tradesperson?

After consulting with numerous large corporation leaders through-out Canada and United stated, the answer can simply be put into the following statement:

“Companies want to hire a trades person that has the specific trade experience, has the right attitude, is available at the right time, and has the flexibility to meet the dynamic nature of the business” analysts reviewed the above Tradesperson question and the companies’ requirement and built a platform where both parties are able to link and meet the mutual objectives:
