Two new Web sites, www.plumbjobs .com and www.electricjobs.com, bring the total database to more than 900 contractors, wholesalers, consulting-engineering firms, building management firms, and large industry names such as Carrier, Trane, Johnson Controls, Grainger, ComfortSystems USA, etc.
The service is provided by MECHdata Inc., Des Moines, IA. Ceo and founder Marc Sampson said these websites have distinct advantages over the more well-known job banks. “Because of multiple focuses, they [well-known banks] have difficulty identifying with all the specific needs of their customers, and also don’t know how to locate skilled people in our trades like we do,” he said.
“It’s our business to understand how our industries operate.”
