A startup called JobGet is announcing $52 million in funding to fuel its ambitions to build a similar kind of go-to hub for a related but actually very different, sector of the labor market: waged or hourly workers.
Built specifically for them, JobGet provides them with listings for jobs and an opportunity to connect with others doing similar work; access for recruiters to tap people for openings they might have; and down the line more tools such as training and development to help them along their own career ladders.
“Our ultimate vision is to become the home for the hourly workforce,” said CEO and co-founder Tony Liu, “not just job search but career progression, connecting with their community and more.”
Editor Notes: JobGet is more of a mobile first company vs Jobcase which has more web based traffic. Mobile is the future of hourly recruiting so Jobcase is defintely behind in this channel. The “LinkedIn for Hourly Workers” war has just begun.
