No Openings – Collecting Resumes?

Human R. - Oct 02, 2015
Back to Ask the Experts

We are in the construction business and at this time, the end of the construction season, we do not have any openings – however, we receive many phone calls of individuals being laid off looking for work. Is there an opportunity, even as a federal subcontractor, that we can list openings for Laborers, Carpenters, and Operators on our job postings to collect interested individuals, even if we do not have any active openings? I was thinking we could respond to each individual informing them at this time we do not have an opening available, however, when we begin hiring again next season, we will contact them if they meet the minimum qualifications? Is there a good way to handle this?
