Take a brief minute and try our Occupy a Job App - Yes, there is now an app for that too!
Over 12.8 million people are out of work in the United States, but there are an estimated 3.5 million unfilled job openings, with over 40 percent of those openings in the skilled trades. Companies need highly technical, capable resources to manage and operate today's complex equipment, and agile minds to adapt to the newer complex equipment technologies on the horizon. I believe with the mainstream entertainment and sports industries distracting the attention of our youth, many are not pursuing the skills needed to fill those vacant skilled trade jobs. These jobs are real, attainable, and well-paying.
So check out the app and spread the word.
