Job Sites, Machine Tool-Style

During the Internet Revolution, have you utilized the Web to help with your employment needs? Chances are, you have.

Sites such as Monster.com (www.monster.com), Hot Jobs (www.hotjobs.com) and others have redefined how many folks look for and interact with prospective employees or employers.

But something's missing from these new channels, particularly when they're utilized for the unique employment demands of a machining environment.

Go visit any of the “Job Exchanges” online and odds are you'll find them touting that they “currently house ‘XXX,XXX' job postings” (or words to that effect). Translated, that means you'll have to wade through listings for numerous categories far from the manufacturing realm to find something close to your needs. Or not.

But there is hope. A few recent additions to the Web job site landscape focus on the machining industry exclusively, and they just might be worth a visit and a bookmark.

MetalIndustryJobs.com is actually three sites that serve vertical sectors of the machining world—Fabricating, Die/Mold and Screw Machining.

MachineToolJobs.com also offers machining-related job postings, but it offers its listings in subcategories, rather than as separate sites.

Each of these offers added specificity that metalworking job or employee seekers will find useful. And, over time, the tools, partnerships and applications these sites develop should improve their overall industry focus.
