BC JobConnect is an easy-to-use online tool that matches BC employers with job-ready newcomers. This talent acquisition platform is designed to help employers meet their workforce needs. It provides a space for newcomers to showcase key competencies, demonstrate experience and secure meaningful employment.
BC JobConnect is not your average job site. On BC JobConnect, employers avoid endless sifting through applications and actively identify candidates using multi-parameter filtered searches to access detailed jobseeker profiles.
BC JobConnect is:
- Employer-driven, based on unique occupation and industry-specific hiring needs.
- Free for employers looking to connect to qualified newcomer candidates.
- Constantly updated with profiles of candidates eligible to work in Canada.
BC JobConnect is open to all permanent residents who have lived in Canada for less than five years, and to individuals who have been pre-approved to immigrate and/or have completed IEC-BC’s FAST Program.
Newcomers registered on BC JobConnect can:
- Highlight education, work experience and relevant skills for employers looking to hire.
- Update online profiles with new courses, certificates, and/or improved language skills.
- Learn more about relevant IEC-BC programs and events, including industry and job-specific Connections Events.
What our employer-partners have to say:
“BC JobConnect has certainly helped me in tapping into this talent pool because the tool allowed me not only to post my job postings, but to search for candidates as well. I believe the ability to search for available candidates is highly useful because it allows me to easily assess candidates’ background and experiences. The search filters are also helpful in narrowing down specifically who you are looking for, in terms of language skills, location and educational requirements.” – Demash Krisanto (Human Resources Specialist, Ingram Micro)
“We’ve used IEC-BC’s BC JobConnect online tool to fill specific roles that we are looking for. The last time I used it I was looking for a pharmacy tech. It’s a great system because you can actually scroll through the resumes, see the qualifications and match it up with what you’re looking for. Click, connect, and IEC-BC will arrange an interview. It is so simple.” – Peter Boyd (Owner, Peter’s Your Independent Grocer)
“My colleagues and I were very impressed with the calibre of candidates that you put forward. We greatly appreciate your help and will reach out for future hiring opportunities.” – Darlene Gering (Chief of Staff, Octaform)
