Canada’s most popular job search sites

For Canadian employers, the job-posting process can be frustrating, time-consuming, and unreliable. It can be a lot of work to sort through stacks of resumes, call up candidates, and do interviews – and this doesn’t always produce the best hire. Because so many employers try to avoid the process, approximately 80% of jobs never get listed at all.
These unlisted jobs makeup “Canada’s hidden job market” and are most commonly accessed by potential employees through personal contacts and/or networking. The importance of personal contacts and networking cannot be stressed enough in the context of finding work in Canadian society.
However, for those of us who have exhausted our personal contacts and networks or for those who are looking for immediate employment, advertised jobs are another option to securing employment. Because employers typically only spend 20-30 seconds reviewing resumes, it is vital that when responding to advertised jobs potential candidates write tailored resumes and cover letters for each position applied to. Candidates should also demonstrate that they have the key skills and qualifications that the employer has outlined in the job description and that they discuss why they are interested in the organization based on conducting research on the organization they wish to work for.
The following is a brief list of Canada’s most popular job search websites. More links to job search websites that are specific to professional industries are also included below.
