TCF861: New Recruiting App for Tradespeople

Many people in the trades industry will often say it’s challenging to find skilled tradespeople. To solve this problem, Brian Drucks founded a platform called Where Trades Go, which directly connects employers with qualified tradespeople. 

Brian is a second-generation painting contractor with decades of experience running his own painting business. Brian explained his motivation for creating the new app, key features of the app, how the app works and much more.

Brian says that Where Trades Go is like a dating site for contractors and tradespeople, where they can connect and help each other easily.
