Skillit is on a mission to be America’s best matchmaker of craft labor and employers. By doing so, we will make skilled labor one of the greatest assets on Earth.
We’ve created the infrastructure to make skilled trade hiring fast, smooth and scalable for construction recruiters nationwide. Skillit provides construction companies access to a rapidly growing database of qualified workers and a suite of worker-first hiring tools that use rich datasets and powerful algorithms to generate better outcomes.
No. While Skillit does bring together skilled tradespeople and top construction companies, it is not a job board. There are no “job posts” in the traditional sense. At Skillit, employers can discover skilled craft workers at any time and on an ongoing basis. With data-rich profiles we create matches so that the right person lands in the right role at the right company. This makes for happier careers and as a result, decreased turnover.
No. Skillit is a network of skilled workers showcasing their unique skills, abilities, and attributes to potential employers. Workers need not report the same information over and over again to apply to different jobs and firms. At Skillit, companies discover workers and offer opportunities to them.
Skillit is free for workers and offers construction firms a subscription product based on specific trades and regions.
Currently, Skillit is used nationally to hire carpenters, drywallers, electricians, general laborers, heavy equipment operators, millwrights, pipefitters, pipelayers, plumbers, solar installers, superintendents and welders of all skill levels. In the future Skillit will roll out support for all trades including wind turbine technicians, ironworkers and more.
Skillit is for workers AND contractors. That means we are here to help workers find the best jobs possible so that they can advance their careers and do more for their families. We believe that happier workers in better jobs benefits everyone. If you are interested in hiring workers through Skillit, you contact us here.

Skillit collects and tracks a broad array of worker attributes. At present, over 200 data points feed into our process which combines a human touch with powerful software and algorithms.

Skillit enables workers to showcase themselves and their experience in a way that has not been possible. Gone are the days of filling out the same information over and over again for different jobs. With Skillit, the companies can find you. While we hope to find you a job that you can stick with for the long-haul, we are also there for you if things don’t work out. We are your career partner for life and will help you find not just your next job, but every job for the rest of your career. For free.
Creating a profile is easy. Visit https://www.skillit.com/ to get started. After you provide your basic info, we will approve your application and set up a time for you to connect with one of our career guides via phone. This helps us learn a bit more about you and what you are looking for in a job.
As your career progresses you can share updates to be sure you secure the best and highest-paying jobs. Workers with the most complete profiles tend to get more and better job offers, so make sure to fill out as much as you can and to take Skillit’s assessments to showcase your skills.
Skillit is different from what you might be used to. We are NOT a temp agency or a recruiter. Once your profile is live companies will reach out to you, not the other way around. You can expect to hear from us to set up interviews when firms are interested in you, and we will connect you directly with hiring managers.
After creating a profile you will set a password that will enable access to your account. You can make changes to anything you like, and keep your experience up to date to ensure you receive the best possible offers from the contractors who use our platform.
You might be surprised how quickly the process can go.
Workers on Skillit have previously applied and talked to one of our worker success counselors in the morning and have received an interview request the same afternoon. While that’s not exactly the norm, we typically see the time between profile creation and interview request to average around 3 days.
It may take you longer, but demand for skilled tradespeople is high and our contractors are here because they need workers to hire.

Generally speaking, no. We aim to find you great work near where you are, because presumably that’s where you want to be. We do offer jobs that require travel and we give you the option to indicate potential willingness to relocate. If you choose, we will show you great opportunities across the country so that you can go where where you decide to direct your career journey (and where money is). If you’re a per diem hunter we’ve also got you covered.
Compensation is location- and role-specific. Skillit offers transparency into pay and benefits by employer and by city so you can confidently compare one offer to another. With this information, you will be better equipped to make employment decisions.

Skillit is different from the typical job board in that it is NOT a job baord. You do not need to search and apply for jobs. We’ve turned the tables so that employers can find you and reach out if they are interested. Once you set up your worker profile, you can expect to start hearing from interested employers. You can indicate to employers whether you are actively looking or are happy where you currently are. And you can change your status at any time.
Once your worker profile is live construction companies will come to you when they are interested. Based on your contact preference for phone, text, or email we will reach out to let you know that an employer wants to meet you. We will help you find a mutually agreeable time for an interview, but there isn’t much else to it since the employer will already have all your information. No more filling out the same application 10 times for 10 different companies or taking different assessments over and over and over again. With Skillit, companies know all about you before you even walk in the door or hop on the phone, so they can be confident that the conversation is worth having.
Absolutely. We recommend that you always keep your profile live but indicate that you are happy where you are. Staying live means that if an employer really wants you, they can always reach out to you – and and it’s up to you whether you want to consider what they have to offer.
If you are new to Skillit your profile will be tagged with a “new” icon for employers to know that you are actively looking. Later on, we recommend that those workers who are actively looking for new opportunities indicate it on their profiles.
Recruiting and retaining skilled craft workers is hard. It makes the recruiters’ jobs tough and it is expensive for builders. We know that the traditional solutions just don’t work. On top of that, hiring expectations have changed and workers expect a fast, smooth, and personalized process.
Skillit offers self-perform contractors access to a growing database of qualified skilled tradespeople. By screening workers for dozens of skill, experience and job preference criteria, Skillit can customizes its algorithms to make personalized matches that meet our customers’ individual needs.
We’ve also built a suite of worker-first hiring tools that make interviews and the assessment of both hard and soft skills fast, easy and reliable. Skillit runs in a browser and all notifications arrive via email or SMS so there’s no need for downloads or any sort of IT or HR integration.
Once your company is onboarded each user will receive a unique login so that they can manage their own talent pipelines.

Skillit does the screening for you, and our taxonomized worker info will tell you exactly who comes with which skills and attributes. A simple filtering process can show just those workers who fit your exact criteria. If you have an ongoing need to fill similar positions in the future you can save that search and come back at any time.
