June 1, 2021 for immediate release
Workforce Planning for Sudbury & Manitoulin is launching a new job portal on their website called ‘Jobs in Sudbury-Manitoulin’. This new job portal gathers job postings from close to 25 job posting sites and includes a number of job listings from some of the largest employers and others in the Sudbury and Manitoulin area.
At the best of times, looking for a job can be daunting. The pandemic has added an additional layer of challenges and is literally changing the world of work. Although the impacts of the pandemic are still unfolding, it is clear that some people have lost their job and some may need to retrain or up-skill. Others may decide to change their occupation and career path entirely or search for a job that provides better home-life balance. And there are those who have decided to call it quits and retire or work in a part-time job in retirement.
Whatever the reason, these changes are shifting our workforce. For those who want to work, while there are numerous job posting websites, it takes time to find the right sites, search each one individually and keep up-to-date with jobs that might fit your skills and experience. This is where the new ‘Jobs in Sudbury-Manitoulin’ job portal can help.
According to Executive Director Reggie Caverson, “the ‘Jobs in Sudbury-Manitoulin’ portal is a first of its kind for our area. Data from the portal already shows that there were close to three-thousand job postings in Greater Sudbury and the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin in April and close to one thousand companies who posted a job vacancy.”
‘Jobs in Sudbury-Manitoulin’ receives daily, sometimes hourly updates for jobs being posted and allows for a search by industry, occupation, skill level, duration, location, most current posting and other key parameters. Duplications found across several job posting sites are weeded out so that the job only appears once on ‘Jobs in Sudbury-Manitoulin’. Caverson adds that “this new portal will save an enormous amount of time and frustration searching through multiple sites as local online job vacancies will be posted in one place.” Each job that is posted is linked to the original website making it easier to apply. This portal will not only help job-seekers living in the area, but those who might want to relocate here. It will also provide a snapshot of what jobs are in demand.
Caverson however reminds job-seekers that employers search for candidates in a number of ways. While online job postings are growing in popularity, many employers still use good old fashioned word-of-mouth and personal networks to find just the right employee. “When looking for a job, ‘Jobs in Sudbury-Manitoulin’ is a great starting point, but it’s just as important to use your own personal contacts to increase your chances of finding the right job for you.”
Workforce Planning for Sudbury-Manitoulin is one of twenty-six workforce planning boards across the province funded by Ontario’s Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development. More than three-quarters of these workforce planning boards have a similar online job portal for their area.
