Job postings can be found in many places: on the Internet, on community bulletin boards, at job fairs or in newspaper
help wanted sections.
You can also contact Definition of employers directly to ask if they are hiring.
IMPORTANT: You need a Social Insurance Number (SIN) to work in Canada.
Job Bank is Canada's one-stop job listing website. Job Bank is the largest online listing of bilingual job opportunities and one of the most popular job search websites in Canada.
The site also offers a résumé builder tool.
Service Canada also provides job search tools and resources to help you find a job, create a résumé, choose a career, assess your skills and more.
Due to the time and cost of advertising a job (e.g. posting newspaper want ads, creating online job postings, etc.), many job vacancies are filled informally. This creates what seems like a Definition of"hidden" job market. Information about available work is often circulated through managers, Definition ofemployees and business associates, as well as through family, friends and acquaintances.
Networking is the way to search for jobs in the hidden job market.
For more information about the hidden job market and using your network, the Youth Canadawebsite has great content useful for everyone!
