Recruiter.com, MCW Energy Group and Oilprice.com Partner to Deliver Web-based Job Placement to Underserved Energy Sector

DOE Study: 70% of energy sector employers claim difficulty finding employees with required skills

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 11/30/16 -- MCW Energy Group Limited ("MCW") (TSX VENTURE:MCW)(OTCQX:MCWEF), a clean-tech company with proprietary soil remediation and extraction technologies, has formed a joint venture ("JV") with OilPrice.com and Recruiter.com to provide internet based job placement and career services to the increasingly skilled and specialized energy sector.

The JV plans to replicate the success of Recruiter.com, the largest network of recruiters on the planet with millions of unique online resumes, through a specialization on the energy sector.

With its increasing technology focus, the sector has a burgeoning need for specialized talent but does not have the online tools to streamline access to such talent.

In a recent survey by the U.S. Department of Energy, over 70% of employers found it "difficult or very difficult" to hire new employees with required skills.

Certain sub-sectors within the energy industry are expected to experience particularly large employment growth. The energy efficiency workforce for example is expected grow 14% in 2016 alone - almost 260,000 new hires.

"MCW's mission is to deliver cleaner, lower cost energy and environmental remediation through innovative technology," comments Jerry Bailey, PhD., MCW CEO. "The opportunity to provide further innovation in the form of streamlined, online talent placement is an extension of that mission and we believe is one of enormous potential."

"Oilprice.com's audience of over 100,000 unique daily visitors includes oil/gas and renewable energy sector executives, senior professionals, investors, and analysts," says Oilprice.com CEO James Stafford. "Career advancement is clearly top priority with them and this new offering will reveal relevant job opportunities and services."

Recruiter.com provides its 3 million job seekers with more than 6 million job listings from over 13,000 companies globally.

Miles Jennings, CEO of Recruiter.com said, "This unique partnership brings together experts in energy technology, energy publishing, and recruitment. We expect this combined expertise to replicate the success we've had in general recruitment in the increasingly specialized and technology focused energy sector."

The new career platform is expected to launch in early 2017 and will serve the entire energy industry, which employs over 3.64 million Americans, bringing together traditional, alternative, and sustainable energy career opportunities.
