A Cost-Effective Solution for US Engineers

The JobRooter initiative is extremely important for US and Canada based engineers and architects as it provides a unique opportunity to save up to 70% on their local design cost while also creating a remote team without having to worry about monthly payroll, employers’ benefits, and office expenses. This is especially significant for those who are just starting out in their careers and are looking to reduce their overhead costs, as well as for those who are interested in working on a freelance basis.

With JobRooter, engineers and architects in Lebanon can easily get an access on new projects from engineers in USA and Canada who are looking for their specific skill set, and work on projects from the comfort of their own home, saving them both time and money. This not only provides a level of flexibility that is highly desirable in today’s job market, but also allows for increased earning potential and job satisfaction.

Connecting Qualified Engineers and Architects

The JobRooter initiative has garnered support from prestigious organizations such as USAID’s Trade and Investment Facilitation Project and the Order of Engineers in Tripoli. Through this initiative, qualified engineers and architects can easily find suitable job opportunities that match their skill sets and expertise. The screening process used by JobRooter targets the top 10% of engineers and architects who have graduated from Lebanese universities accredited by US authorities (ABET). This ensures that only the most qualified and competent candidates are selected. By providing a platform that connects qualified engineers and architects with companies and clients in need of their services, JobRooter helps bridge the gap between supply and demand in the engineering remote job market. This makes it easier for engineers and architects to find work that matches their skills and interests, while also giving US and Canadian engineers an access to a pool of talented professionals who can contribute to their projects.

Engineers as Hope for Their Struggling Families

The JobRooter initiative has become a lifeline for many Lebanese families who have been struggling to make ends meet in the face of an economic crisis that has been exacerbated by a banking sector Ponzi scheme. The initiative is particularly important for families who have spent a large amount of their savings and some sold their properties and valuable belongings to educate their young talents to become engineers, only to find themselves with no savings due to the collapse of the banking sector where the exchange rate has exceeded 100,000 Lebanese pounds for one USD. These parents are now totally dependent on their young talents at an advanced age, and supporting those unemployed young engineers has become crucial to helping their families survive, with their skills and expertise, these engineers can provide a glimmer of hope for the future of their families, by providing remote job opportunities, JobRooter is helping to alleviate the financial burden on families and ensure that they have access to the resources they need to rebuild their lives amidst the economic turmoil.

Expertise without the Hassle

In order to use JobRooter as a US-based engineer, you will need to submit a request for proposal (RFP) or a request for quotation (RFQ) along with all relevant documents for your project. JobRooter will confirm the ability to proceed with the project and submit a proposal. Once the proposal is approved, a contract will be signed between all parties. JobRooter will then award the job to the best qualified engineer and assign a project success manager to follow up on technical and administrative details throughout the duration of the project. The benefit of using JobRooter is that you do not need to worry about recruiting or training newly employed team members. JobRooter takes care of all of that for you, so you can focus on the project at hand. Additionally, the tools and resources available through JobRooter make the job search and project management process much easier, ensuring a successful outcome for all parties.

Importance of Diaspora Networking

Diaspora networking is an essential part of supporting the JobRooter initiative. The Lebanese and Arab diaspora community has a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and connections that can be tapped into to support the growth and success of JobRooter. By connecting with local diaspora organizations, including cultural centers and Lebanese and Arab communities and organizations, individuals can play an active role in supporting this initiative. These organizations can help to spread the word about JobRooter and connect diaspora with local engineers and architects, and provide valuable resources and support. As a patriot, I encourage you to try to connect with local diaspora organizations and see how you can contribute to the success of this initiative. By working together, we can create a more prosperous future for engineers and architects, both in Lebanon and among the Lebanese diaspora around the world.
