[Raleigh, NC] – BlueRecruit is proud to announce that it has been selected as a finalist for the NC TECH Awards Diversity, Equity + Inclusion award for a 3rd year. The NC TECH Awards is North Carolina’s only statewide technology awards program that recognizes innovation, growth and leadership in the tech sector and is presented by the NC TECH (North Carolina Technology Association).

“Our mission at BlueRecruit is to provide America’s workers a revolutionary path to success, and making software more readily available to people of all races, genders, and experience levels is an absolutely critical component to fulfilling that goal.” stated Rich Camacho, the CEO of BlueRecruit. Only 11% of the U.S. construction industry is made up of women; however, women make up 51% of the labor force. Furthermore, an average of 200,000 Veterans enter the civilian workforce each year. With the incredible labor shortages gripping nearly every sector of North America’s economy, BlueRecruit has made it a mission to make it easier for women, people of color, and Veterans to connect with exceptional employers and build great careers. Camacho hopes that this awesome recognition by the NC Tech Association will help to spread the word on the incredible opportunities available in the skilled trade industries.

“For over 20 years, NC TECH has celebrated companies, organizations and individuals for outstanding achievement at the NC TECH Awards. As a finalist this year, BlueRecruit has distinguished itself as one of the state’s innovative and emergent leaders,” stated Brooks Raiford, NC TECH’s President and CEO.
