WrenchWay Shares Breakthrough on how to Recruit Technicians

Tackling the Technician Shortage

Does the technician shortage have your shop struggling to find technicians? With the growing technician shortage, the U.S. will lack an estimated 642,000 technicians by 2024, according to a study by TechForce Foundation. As a result, shops and dealerships are short-handed and actively hiring.

While this provides ample opportunities for technicians, it can feel overwhelming as they try 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 connects shops and technicians by flipping the traditional job board around. Technicians start by filling out a quick questionnaire about their skill set and what they seek in a shop.

From there, shops can browse through posts in their area and reach out to the technicians that interest them. Technicians’ identities and contact information remain hidden while they message back and forth. All posts stay valid for 30 days, ensuring every Reverse Job Post remains up-to-date.

Reverse Job Posts are Here to Help

WrenchWay created Reverse Job Posts to make the job search process easier for technicians. With this new recruiting method, technicians increase the odds that they will find a shop that fits them, so they will ultimately continue working in the industry.

While no one can eliminate the technician shortage overnight, we can use this solution to start improving the state of the industry.
