We are dedicated to providing the best opportunities for job seekers, attracting the highest-quality job candidates for employers, and providing an easy way to locate top of the line businesses in all agriculture and western service sectors. We also aim to provide various business and personal development resources for all of the areas that we serve.
Of The West was designed to fill what we found to be a large void when it came to the job-seeking and hiring process, specifically within the agriculture and western industries. As many of us know, it takes a special type of person to work in an ag or western industry. Industry experience isn’t necessarily a requirement, but a deep appreciation for our way of life and desire to pass our lifestyle down to the next generation is non-negotiable. Unfortunately, as an employer, it can be difficult to find that type of person, especially when there isn’t one single platform where those types of candidates are searching for jobs.
We also know from experience that searching for a specific agriculture or western-based trade or service can often be a difficult feat. Since that was the case, in our hearts we knew that tradespeople and service providers in those niches likely struggled to get their businesses seen by the people who wanted to hire them because of their experience or inherent knowledge.
We wanted to build one single online location, where we could solve all of those problems—greatly benefiting the people and businesses that we consider to be the backbone of America.
That’s why we created Of The West.
Of The West is broken down into two parts, Jobs and Trades. Jobs Of The West is specifically dedicated to America’s agriculture and western industry workforce. We wanted to bring the right jobs to the right people, and in turn, bring a stronger group of applicants to those who were looking to fill positions. Trades Of The West is focused on the service side of the agriculture and western industries. It supplies business owners with a place to list and promote their businesses, directly in front of the eyes of their niche clientele; thus allowing searchers an easy way to find the exact type of business they are looking for.
