Employment Section in Depth – Mar 2011

Employment Section

In 2010, Career Cruising launched a new set of tools and content to help users connect the career planning process with their job search. The Employment section has two primary components: an Employment Guide and a job search tool. You can access the Employment section from the top menu bar on any page in Career Cruising.

The Employment Guide provides users with a wealth of information on each step in the job search process – everything from searching for work, to refining resumes and cover letters, to developing interview skills. The Employment Guide was developed in partnership with the University of Waterloo’s (uWaterloo) Career Services, a recognized leader in university career education, and contains elements of the uWaterloo’s Career Development eManual.

The Employment Guide includes six main sections:

The Employment section also features a job search tool. Users can access the job search directly from the Employment section, or by using the Search for Jobs button that now appears on the career profile page for all occupations. The Search for Jobs functionality can provide structure to the job search process by connecting careers that interest a user with suggested job titles or keywords to focus the user’s search for current openings.

Search results are drawn from Indeed.ca), a leading job search aggregator. Indeed.ca searches a pool of thousands of company career sites and job boards each time users search. Pulling from such a wide array of sites can help users form a clear picture of the status of the local market for the types of careers that interest them.
