Skillit is on a mission to build a more personalized and rewarding hiring experience for everyone who builds our physical world. We’re creating the infrastructure for skilled trade hiring that enables fast, smooth and scalable construction recruitment globally. The Craft Recruiter product 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 tradespeople 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 community of skilled tradespeople 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 charges construction firms a subscription fee based on usage of and access to our platform.
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.
Skillit is different from what you might be used to. 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.
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.
