CraftForce matches employers with skilled workers such as welders, electricians, carpenters and machinists.

According to ManpowerGroup’s most recent Talent Shortage Survey, skilled trade jobs continue to be the most difficult for U.S. employers to fill. And while employers struggle to find properly trained electricians, machinists, plumbers, and other skilled workers, scores of those workers struggle to find good jobs that match their abilities.

CraftForce is a new job search platform for skilled trades, developed to strategically link job seekers and employers. Joining us to discuss CraftForce and meeting the needs of U.S. companies for skilled workers, are Vice President of the Workforce Development Center at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, Amy Waldbillig; Vice President of Corporate College at Gateway Community and Technical College, Carissa Schutzman; and CraftForce Founder and CEO Dustin Grutza.
