CBIA Launches New Web Site to Connect Building Industry With Job Candidates

SACRAMENTO - The California Building Industry Association today launched cbiajobs.com(www.cbiajobs.com), a job-placement Web site dedicated exclusively to California's building industry. The site matches California employers with job seekers from the state as well as around the nation.

The cbiajobs.com site was developed in conjunction with CBIA's alliance partner Strategic HR, a leading national human resources outsourcing firm based in Costa Mesa. Cbiajobs.com is free to job seekers, and CBIA-member companies receive deep discounts on job postings.

"Cbiajobs.com was established with one goal in mind - to allow employers and job seekers to find each other quickly and easily," said Robert Rivinius, CBIA Chief Executive Officer. "This site answers the building industry's need to put employers and job seekers together at a time when the supply and demand for positions and qualified employees seem to be heading in opposite directions."

The site is organized by job category and geographic location, and includes helpful tools such as interviewing tips, salary surveys, and how to write a winning resume.

While 75 percent of people online have used the Internet to search for a job, only 20 percent report being satisfied with the quality of Internet job postings. Nevertheless, the Internet is an essential component of people's employment strategies. In fact, 67 percent of Net surfers expect to conduct most of their next job search online.

Unlike other Internet job sites, cbiajobs.com was developed with the building industry's needs in mind, Rivinius noted.

"Since cbiajobs.com is focused exclusively on the building industry, the candidates will be more targeted to jobs in their field of expertise," Rivinius said. "It's far more cost-effective than a one-size-fits-all job site - cbiajobs.com is truly without equal."

Although any California company can post jobs on the site, local CBIA-affiliated companies get significant discounts, and the cost of posting jobs decreases the more an employer lists at the site.
