Company

Business description: WorkMetro specializes in providing online recruiting solutions that connect companies with job seekers in their local area. Unlike the national employment websites, each WorkMetro recruitment website focuses on a specific metropolitan area. Our local approach allows employers to identify and hire job seekers easily and efficiently. Most employers in WorkMetro’s markets find our websites to be excellent resources in helping them fulfill their recruiting needs. The key to ensuring that a broad range of employment candidates visit and register on our websites is local marketing and advertising. In each WorkMetro market, we advertise through numerous media outlets to reach potential job seekers as well as to market our services to employers and staffing firms.
