Sandhills Publishing Announces NeedWorkToday.com, A Resource That Connects Workers With Employers In The Construction, Agriculture, Aviation, and Transportation Industries

LINCOLN, Nebraska — August 17, 2016



Sandhills Publishing introduces NeedWorkToday.com, a new website that connects workers in the construction, agriculture, trucking, and aviation industries to businesses with available long- and short-term employment opportunities. The website provides an easy and direct way for employers to source industry-specific labor and for job seekers to find viable employment opportunities within the related industries.

NeedWorkToday.com draws on the established reach and success of Sandhills' trade publications (Machinery Trader, TractorHouse, Truck Paper, Controller, and Executive Controller) and their respective websites to provide contractors, farmers, dealers, manufacturers, auctioneers, and other businesses with access to a pool of professionals seeking employment within these industries. "We've already been serving businesses and end users in these industries for decades," explains Sandhills' Jake Bergen. "NeedWorkToday.com builds on our established presence in these industries to address the challenge of finding labor and employment opportunities."

With an interface similar to NeedADriverNow.com—a recently launched Sandhills website that connects companies seeking commercial truck drivers with qualified drivers seeking jobs—NeedWorkToday.com offers convenient features for both employers and job seekers. Employers can post basic information like company name, job type, contact information, compensation details; they can also search the Worker Board (accessible from the Sandhills Cloud—a hosted suite of business apps and web-based tools) for job applications posted by those seeking employment.

Job seekers can search posts within specific industries, categories, and geographic regions, then reach out directly to employers for more details. They can also fill out and post an application; employers can then find workers based on the information in posted applications.

NeedWorkToday.com belongs to Sandhills' growing list of online resources, which also includes NeedALender.com (connecting lenders with individuals seeking financing), NeedAHauler.com (connecting transportation and logistics companies with the business and individuals who need them), and NeedADriverNow.com (connecting companies seeking commercial truck drivers with qualified drivers seeking jobs).

All of these online services provide industry-specific solutions to markets that need them. "We're constantly hearing feedback from our customers and end users about the challenges associated with finding employees and employment within these industries," adds Bergen. "NeedWorkToday.com is one more way that Sandhills is furthering its services to continue to meet the needs of the market."
