When we started WorkHere, we started by building a job discovery tool for workers that would let people find nearby jobs quickly.
“Find Jobs Now”
Our team created the job board in the 90s. We knew that job boards, no matter how well executed, are of linear value. Witness the sale of Monster.com to Randstad for $440M compared to LinkedIn’s sale to Microsoft for $26 Billion.
We also knew that LinkedIn was great for highly educated knowledge workers, but the LinkedIn network excluded other workers — the part-time, full-time, skilled, unskilled, semi-skilled, entry-level people that make the economy work.
We’ve evolved. We’ve grown. And it’s not just about finding jobs. It’s about connecting with people. It’s about connecting with places that matter. And, it’s about connecting with opportunity. It’s about having a network to help with work and life… in your pocket, ready to help find your next job, your next big thing in life.
WorkHere is the work-life network for everyone.
For employers, our goal has always been to help connect with local workers. WorkHere is, was and always be at its heart a social network designed to connect workers, the places workers want to work at and the people that help make opportunities happen.
