GoGetter Online Skilled Trades Community
Jared Wise, GoGetter
GoGetter (gogetter247.com) is an early stage startup seeking to address the current labor supply shortage in skilled trades by creating an effective career management and recruiting tool, and to also focus on increasing the supply of workers in these industries. We seek to attract new entrants by informing young people of the opportunities that exist and providing them with avenues to enter these careers. We believe that both our product and marketing approach are unique and more likely to be successful than other efforts currently in the marketplace.
We are building an online platform and community for individuals, businesses and organizations connected to skilled trades. Our site will consist of three profile types (“GoGetters” – individual students or employees, “Employers” – businesses which hire employees, and “Career Enhancers” – organizations such as trade schools, government agencies, non-profits, etc.), each of which are created, optimized and maintained by the user themselves, and allows for efficient search, connection and communication between the various profile types. Our product also offers information on skilled trade career paths and
serves as a resource for people interested in learning about or pursuing these paths.
While we believe that an improved career management and recruiting platform is needed for these industries, we also are convinced that the true solution is to increase the supply of individuals working in these industries, and that goal is the focus of this Impact Plan and our efforts with Pathway 2 Tomorrow.
PATHWAY 2 TOMORROW
