Job search site MilwaukeeJobs.com plans to nearly double its office space in downtown Milwaukee and add up to 100 employees over the next two years.
The Milwaukee-based company currently has 65 employees in Milwaukee and another 15 employees at its Washington, D.C., and Minneapolis offices, said Liz Dotson, vice president. It occupies 22,000 square feet on the 11th floor of the 1000 North Water building, and in the first quarter of 2016 will expand to the 12th floor as well, for a total of 40,000 square feet.
“The last few years we have started offering government compliance services for our employers, and that has helped us grow tremendously,” Dotson said.
The government compliance services connect federal contractor employers connect with community organizations to hire veterans and people with disabilities. MilwaukeeJobs also helps employers offer veteran priority referral by cross-posting their positions to state job banks, she said.
“I think there weren’t necessarily a lot of other resources there to help employers in these areas and so that’s where we’ve been able to really establish our services for employers that do have federal contracts or are federal contractors,” Dotson said.
MilwaukeeJobs.com plans to hire 50 to 100 employees over the next two years to accommodate its growth, mostly in sales positions, as well as in marketing, IT and compliance.
The company has a network of job search sites around the country and 5,000 employer clients nationwide, 2,000 of which are in Wisconsin. It’s the largest local employment site in the state.
