WrenchWay Shares Breakthrough on how to Recruit Technicians

WrenchWay Unveils Reverse Job Posts to Help Repair Shops Find Technicians
Created by: WrenchWay

Tackling the Technician Shortage

Does the technician shortage have your shop struggling to find technicians? With the growing technician shortage, it is estimated the U.S. will be short 642,000 technicians by 2024, according to a study by TechForce Foundation. As a result, shops and dealerships are short-handed and hiring. While this provides ample opportunities for technicians, it’s also overwhelming and makes it more difficult to find the right shop. WrenchWay's newly-released Reverse Job Posts feature makes it easier for shops and technicians to connect.

A Groundbreaking Recruiting Resource

Reverse Job Posts make it easier for shops and technicians to connect by flipping the traditional job board around. Technicians start by filling out a quick questionnaire about their skill set and what they’re looking for in a shop. From there, shops can browse through posts in their area and reach out to the technicians they’re interested in. Technicians’ identities and contact information are not included in the posts and remain hidden while they message back and forth. All posts are valid for 30 days, ensuring every Reverse Job Post is up-to-date.
