MSD JobLink FAQ'S

About


MSD JobLink is an online tool to help contractors working on MSD projects find local, well-trained employees.

MSD JobLink is available for all prime and subcontractors working on MSD Projects.
On projects over $5 million contractors are REQUIRED to hire a percentage of their workforce locally. This requirement is one of the factors MSD uses to manage contracts, making it a vital part of the delivery process. MSD JobLink is a free service that helps connect contractors to the talented workforce in our community.


Our region has an abundance of both opportunities and a skilled workforce to fill many construction jobs opportunities for MSD contrators. MSD JobLink will make local hiring easier and help keep MSD construction dollars in our community.

How does it work? First, the MSD works with its contractors to post job opportunities with their companies. Then, Metro Louisville residents and many of the area Workforce Development Agencies and community organizations upload their resumes for view by the MSD JobLink registered contractors. Contractors and Jobseekers are then encouraged to search the site for the best matches to fill the construction jobs in communities in which MSD serves.


MSD JobLink is available for all Louisville area residents who reside in any of the following counties: Jefferson, Bullitt, Henry, Meade, Nelson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties in Kentucky; and, Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Washington counties in Indiana.

MSD JobLink provides diverse, dependable candidates. Working with Workforce Development Agencies such as KentuckianaWorks and Louisville Urban League, many candidates are experienced, while others receive pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeships, and job readiness training for the construction industry.
