WorkHands is a network for people and organizations in the skilled trades. We have 25K people on the network and are working closely with trade schools, community colleges, and apprenticeships like yours.
We're hiring at least one Student Rep at each school, potentially more, for approximately 5-10hrs per week. Exact tasks will vary depending on your organization, but here's an idea of what you'll be doing:
Channel feedback to the WorkHands team. We'd love to visit every organization on WorkHands, but since we can't, we need your help figuring out what people love (and hate) about WorkHands.
Make sure WorkHands posters are hung in each department so students and staff can sign up easily at your program.
Periodically go around to classrooms and shops and help get job posts from the bulletin board onto WorkHands. You can simply email pictures to your school's email address, and we'll convert as needed.
Identify new ideas for the product, bugs we can fix, and anything else that'd improve WorkHands at your school.
Identify employers and contacts that should be on WorkHands for your employers and help bring them on.
Identify local press for when WorkHands is fully live in your area to let others in your community know about the network.
Above all, set a shining example for others on the network of what an actively engaged account looks like.
