BC JobConnect is a customized online tool to connecting BC employers to job-ready newcomers. This easy-to-use website is designed to help employers fill their workforce needs while offering newcomers an effective way to showcase their talents and gain meaningful employment.
BC JobConnect is not your average job site. It does not involve posting of opportunities by employers and endless sifting through applications. Instead, BC JobConnect enables employers to identify candidates of interest, based on flexible, multi-parameter key word searches and candidates’ profiles and supporting documentation. Employers are also able to:
- Access an untapped pool of candidates
- Set-up monitored searches to receive email notifications on new candidates based on preset parameters through the ‘Monitor This Search’ function
- Receive ongoing support from IEC-BC staff
This online platform is open to all newcomers, who have lived in Canada for less than five years, as well as to individuals who have been pre-approved to immigrate and have completed IEC-BC’s FAST Program.
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)
