New SMS Technology Instantly Matches Employers with Job Seekers

Vancouver, British Columbia (Oct. 17, 2007) - Finding a job just got immensely faster, thanks to SkilledWorkers.com. The Vancouver-based job board announced today the launch of its groundbreaking 2-way Short Message Service (SMS) Job Notifications. This revolutionary technology instantly connects employers to the most qualified potential candidates worldwide. It also further positions SkilledWorkers.com as a global leader in pairing workers in the highly competitive construction, mining, oil and gas industries with employers eager to have them.

Through the use of SMS technology, employers can immediately send job postings directly to job seekers via their mobile phones. With demand for labor at a peak, SkilledWorkers.com has thrived to give industry leaders the quickest, most efficient solution to their hiring needs. Real-time notification of lucrative opportunities delivered succinctly and without haste into the palms of top-notch trade professionals accomplishes this goal while also establishing an industry first.

The pioneering service allows trade professionals to view a text message that informs them of an opening and to respond instantly with word of their interest. In an industry where competition can be tough, the quick response factor of the SMS benefits both trade professionals and employers. Within seconds, skilled workers can apply for an available position by simply using the keypad of their cell phones. For workers in professions where employment is cyclical and ever-changing, finding the next work site has never been easier or more worry free.

“We’re looking to revolutionize the job board industry,” says Constantine Klemos, President and CEO of SkilledWorkers.com. “Trade professionals will no longer have to spend their time reading through long and imposing lists of job advertisements to find the right match for them. And employers will have a targeted demographic of candidates to instantly inform about their posting.”

 

The SMS technology used by SkilledWorkers.com was developed by Klemos and the company’s director of information technology, Iyas Khadra. As the first job board on the planet enabled with text-messaging capability, SkilledWorkers.com is solidifying itself as a leader of the employment industry.
