Recruiting through online job boards?

If you’re recruiting through any of the major job boards, you are likely paying per application or per job click. On average, a construction company only interviews 3% of the resumes submitted.

What do you do with those resumes that don’t get an interview that you’ve already paid for?

Give the other 97% to X3 and earn credits for anyone we hire.

Recent Layoffs or Terminations?

Whether it’s out of your control or a result of performance, it’s never great to lose skilled laborers. Our X-Refer service takes the employee separation and turns it into a win-win situation for you.

Send X3 the talent you had to let go for whatever reason, and if we can find them a new home, we’ll credit you $1 for every hour they work with us.

Stop moving on from talent for nothing.
