Chicago, Ill.—July 11, 2012—Industrial Careers Pathway® (ICP) is doing all it can to attract the right people for industrial distribution jobs as they become available. Part of that work includes the launch this week of an online job board designed to connect young people looking for career jobs with industrial distributors and manufacturers looking for those same bright young people to fill open positions.
The new ICP Job Board is located directly at http://jobs.idcareers.org and is also available through the ”Jobs” tab at the ICP website, www.industrialcareerspathway.org. Because wages for wholesale distributor and manufacturing sales reps rank very high for positions that do not require college degrees, industrial distribution careers can be an attractive place for thousands of bright, young individuals to work and earn a good living. Jobs for those with technical school and community college, as well as four-year college degrees are available. Employers can begin posting open positions immediately to the ICP Job Board at http://jobs.idcareers.org.
The ICP Job Board has many attractive features: the ability for employers to bring job seekers to their own online recruiting pages thereby creating a seamless brand experience for job seekers, the option to create screening questions to save time while reviewing resumes, and the opportunity to research posted resumes at no cost once a job has been posted. Employers who are members of the ICP Alliance Partner network (Industrial Supply Association, NAHAD-The Association for Hose and Accessories Distribution, or the Power Transmission Distributors Association) are also entitled to special discounts. The targeted nature of the ICP Job Board, along with the affordable cost (about half of commercial job boards) of posting a help wanted ad, makes the ICP Job Board a desirable choice compared to the larger job boards.
ICP is promoting the ICP Job Board to young people throughout North America using a variety of initiatives and advertising tactics as well as its all-volunteer Ambassador Corps. ICP Ambassadors are available to speak to local community and school groups about the industrial distribution industry as well as make presentations at career fairs in their communities.
