Construction Job Board

Master Builders of Iowa is addressing the labor force shortage and facing the challenge head-on.  Through a partnership with BirdDogHR, we have developed an online job board for the exclusive use of MBI members. As a member, you can post career opportunities, as well as internships available with your firm.  Our goal at MBI is for this website to become a clearing house for contractors to post openings and be a one-stop shop for interested job seekers to find the ideal career opportunity that MBI members can provide.

We understand that recruiting is a huge undertaking for MBI members and we hope that this job board can be an additional resource for your firm to find the labor force and leaders you are looking for. The best part for MBI members is that this is a value-added service, meaning there is NO COST for you. The job board is online at and posting your open positions is as easy as 1…2…3.

  1. Visit and click ‘Employer Registration.’
  2. Submit a short form with your company information.
  3. Within 24 hours, receive your company login credentials, via email, to log in to the site and start posting as many open positions as you would like.

In our effort to connect potential employers with job seekers, we are advertising the job board on Google, Facebook, Craigslist and with the following colleges and universities:

  • ISU ConE Department
  • UNI Construction Management
  • Des Moines Area Community College
  • Indian Hills Community College
  • Iowa Lakes Community College
  • North Iowa Area Community College
  • Western Iowa Tech
  • Iowa Valley Community College
  • Northeast Iowa Community College
  • Iowa Workforce Development
  • Home Base Iowa

Do You Hire Entry Level Positions?

MBI has heard from dozens of contractors that they are ‘always hiring’, even if they may not be hiring for a specific position. If your company is among those who are always willing to bring new talent onto your team, consider creating a job board post similar to this one to attract that talent. If your company is a signatory contractor, a post like this can also be used to pique the interest of job seekers, who you can then send on to your local union.
