Like construction companies all over the country, those in Colorado are having a tough time recruiting skilled workers. So they’ve launched a mobile app to connect job-seekers with job sites.
The app and Web site, called BuildColorado.com, lists job openings and apprenticeships available in the state. It also has a section pitching the virtues of construction careers and another aimed at convincing parents and educators to talk up the job-site.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper endorsed the app as industry leaders joined him at the state Capitol for its launch.
The app and Web site offer information and resources, but won’t vet applicants or participate in hiring. Still, site managers will verify job listings before posting them on the site.
