Jobcase, a blue-collar networking site and job board, has rolled out a host of online recruitment tools to connect workers with jobs in essential industries.

The new offerings are meant to guide candidates through the hiring process completely online. Options include:

  • AI-powered promotional and distribution tools for companies looking for candidates
  • Online registration with screener questions
  • Video and webinar-style presentation capabilities
  • Public and private chat tools

“On one side there are a lot of individuals dealing with recent layoffs and furloughs,”Jobcase CEO Fred Goff said in a statement. “On the other hand, there are many overwhelmed employers who need help in necessary services — healthcare, logistics and warehousing, supply chains, customer service, grocery, delivery, etc. Frankly, this is why Jobcase exists.”

Jobcase, which touts itself as LinkedIn for the working class, arose from the ashes of the last major recession in 2008. Goff, who then worked at a money-management firm, repurposed the firm’s AI to help people find jobs.

Founded in 2015, Jobcase has raised a total of $118 million in funding, according to Crunchbase. Most of that came from a $100 million U.S. round last February led by Providence Equity Partners.

Jobcase ranks seventh among U.S. job sites in terms of traffic. It had 7.8 million visits in March, according to SimilarWeb.
