Canada’s Top’s Job search websites

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, the jobs are in the so called ‘ hidden market” which is e most commonly accessed by potential employees through personal contacts and/or networking.  So even before coming the  importance of personal contacts and networking cannot be stressed enough in the context of finding work in Canadian society.

However, every year, more than 130,000 students come to study in Canada, and even more to learn English or French, according to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Former International Trade Minister Stockwell Day acknowledged that the education of international students is one of Canada’s a major export industries, and should be developed even further.

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.
