PICA Brings HireSkills.com Nationwide to its Members
Press release from the issuing company
Charlotte, April 4, 2002 -- The Printing Industry of the Carolinas, Inc. (PICA) announced today that it has negotiated an agreement with HireSkills.com to make their internet based graphic arts job board available to PICA members.
According to Richard E. Spencer, President of The Printing Industry of the Carolinas, Inc., "This is exciting news for our members. HireSkills.com will provide a targeted, cost effective medium for finding skilled employees in our industry. It will expand the reach of companies looking for sales, CSR, prepress, production and bindery candidates. We see HireSkills.com as a natural fit in our commitment to provide printing association leadership and excellent value to our members."
In addition to PICA members, over six hundred graphic arts companies have already taken advantage of HireSkills.com's nationwide reach and easy to use interface for finding experienced and skilled printing, publishing and packaging employees.
At the suggestion of many senior printing company managers who were desperate for production employees, HireSkills.com was launched. Now in its third year, HireSkills.com uniquely addresses skilled labor and technical needs in the graphic arts industry. "Our candidate database is just shy of the 20,000 mark and growing at more than a thousand professionals a month. The original business model has expanded beyond anything we ever imagined possible," comments David A. Clark, President, HireSkills.com, LLC. "We now have many registrants who are in managerial and sales roles. Because they want to protect their present positions, only one in three will actually submit a public resume. These applicants prefer to visit HireSkills.com looking for opportunities posted by employers. This allows employers and employees to find an optimal match."
