On Oct. 18, The Home Depot announced a new Path to Pro Network jobseeker marketplace aimed to connect skilled tradespeople to hiring trades professionals in the construction and home improvement industries.

Formerly known as SupplyWorks, The Home Depot’s Pro Institutional division was No. 8 on MDM’s 2022 Top Industrial Distributors list.

In a news release, the company cited a survey it conducted in partnership with Morning Consult that found 50% of trades professionals say that determining whether an applicant is qualified for a job is an obstacle to hiring. By visiting PathtoPro.com, qualified jobseekers can create a profile, upload their resume and add photos of their work to connect with The Home Depot’s Pro customers looking to hire in their local area.

The network features skill badges that indicated if someone has accredited training, is a U.S. Military veteran or has graduated from the company’s free trades training program.

“There is not a leading jobseeker platform for the skilled trades and The Home Depot is committed to connecting skilled tradespeople with our Pro customers for jobs,” said Eric Schelling, vice president of global talent acquisition at The Home Depot. “The Path to Pro Network was designed to provide jobseekers with new career networking opportunities in the trades. Building a profile in the Path to Pro Network is the best way to showcase to potential employers that you have what it takes to work in the skilled trades.”

The company added that the network is part of its larger Path to Pro program aimed to address a growing skilled labor shortage in the U.S.
