Roadtechs.com provides all of our products to job seekers free of charge. The costs of running Roadtechs.com are paid by our
client shops through job posting subscriptions, banner advertisements, etc. (there is a fee to upgrade a job seeker Black Book account
to a "Premium" account, but there is no fee for job seekers to use the basic Black Book.).
We do our best to keep the web site as easy to use as possible. There are no complicated registration forms to fill out or
log-ins required for a job seeker to use the site and find a job (if you choose to create a Black Book resume profile, then
a log-in would be required for your security).
Roadtechs.com does not share any job seeker contact information with anyone other than our client shops (via Black Book resume
searches), we understand that your privacy is important to you. We do not send unsolicited emails either. If you receive an
email from Roadtechs.com, it's because you signed up for one of our products or services.
Announce! - The Black Book Announce! feature will allow you to immediately broadcast your availability for your next job
to participating Roadtechs.com recruiters.
Job Notify - The Black Book Job Notify feature will allow you to receive immediate notification of jobs matching your selected skill sets.
These new features will initially be available to all Black Book users for a limited time. After which, these new features will be
available with Black Book Premium accounts only.
Job Seeker Related Products:
Black Book - this is a place for you to
store your resume information on Roadtechs.com for our client recruiters to use when looking for workers to fill jobs. Use this
as your Roadtechs.com "landing page" so you can easily indicate your current availability, save job searches, etc. For a small
annual fee, you can upgrade your profile to our Premium level. Premium profiles are moved to the top of recruiter resume searches
(if they are searching for your skill set, industry, etc.) and do not require quarterly log-ins to keep the profile active.
If you have a searchable Black Book profile (contains the minimum detail to be searchable by recruiters), and your availability
setting is "available" or "working but considering offers", then your Black Book profile will be included in automatic resume
searches when a job is posted by recruiters. If your desired job title matches the recruiter's job title, then your resume
information (without your contact info) is emailed to the posting recruiter. Only recruiters with a current Roadtechs.com subscription
are allowed to view your Black Book contact information.
The Job Search Tool - Select "search jobs"
from the main menu and then filter for your skill set and industry. Much easier than scanning the job boards. If you have a Black Book profile, then
you can save your searches for use at a later time.
Job Boards - there are 12 job boards for you to choose from. Pick your industry from the main menu and then select a
job board. Posts are listed from the most recent first to the oldest last.
Hotsheets - Jobs in your discipline emailed directly
to you. HotSheet emails are sent out once a day, after 4PM Pacific time. They contain all jobs posted for the selected discipline
in the previous 24 hours. If no jobs were posted for the selected discipline in the previous 24 hours, then no HotSheet will be
published for that day. It's up to you to subscribe and unsubscribe to the Hotsheets and the instructions for managing your
subscriptions are on the Hotsheets listing page
and at the bottom of every Hotsheet that is published.
Lodging List - A place for job seekers to find lodging near
plant sites. The information is listed by the lodging providers themselves and is not vetted by Roadtechs.com.
Client Shop Listings - Every Roadtechs.com industry area has an associated listing of client shops. Just select an area from
the main menu, then select shops. Only our client shops are listed.
Other Services - This is an area of
Roadtechs.com that lists products or services of interest to the traveling worker. There are hotel/motel listings (some with discounted
rates for Roadtechs.com users), education opportunities, resumes services, tax preparation services, etc.
RSS Feeds - For those workers that want
their job posting updates on a more real-time basis, we have RSS feeds for all 12 boards and a good selection of disciplines. You will need
an RSS reader application and then point your app to the RSS feed you're interested in (click on the "RSS Feed" link and then cut and
paste the URL into your application).
