NEW ROCHELLE — Online recruitment firm TireTalent.com is has launched a free industry job board.
The website, TireCareers.com, was created in response to the need for a dedicated "go-to" source for careers related to the tire industry, according to Mike Cioffi, founder of Tire Talent, a boutique search firm specializing in matching employers and employees in the tire and automotive industry.
Everyone from independent tire dealers to large dealerships are able to post their openings. A fee may be charged in the future, Mr. Cioffi said, to larger dealers for bulk job loads.
"We get weekly inquiries for techs, counter sales reps and various other positions that fall outside the primary scope of service of Tire Talent," Mr. Cioffi said.
Mr. Cioffi said the website benefits tire companies by providing a free, turn-key solution to job listings for retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers to post their listings.
In addition, job seekers may post resumes free.
"It's our way of giving back to the industry," Mr. Cioffi said.
"We are striving to be the number one source for finding industry openings all in one place."
TireTalent.com recently announced it is collaborating with ChainedWolf Inc., a subscription recruiting services company, to offer a "comprehensive" recruitment strategy for the tire industry. The entities said they were creating a full-service recruitment platform that will serve the industry's hiring needs.
