Finding a job in a new city without many contacts can be an overwhelming process. Most of our students at Cambria either want to work full-time or part-time while they are completing their studies.

As part of our training we offer career strategies, resume building, interview coaching, and cover letter writing assistance. We also have a job board with the most up-to-date healthcare and caregiver positions in Victoria. In addition to this, we offer assistance in searching for jobs online. With online job hunting, you're never out of options or very far from your next interview! There are hundreds of job boards, both generic and niche, as well as social media channels, apps and networking groups to help get you on track.

In hope of helping you with your search, we created a list of some of our favourite job search websites in Canada.

Pro Tip: Whenever possible, it is always a good idea to enter your email address and have specific job listings sent directly to your email. This prevents you from having to search every day, and all the latest listings for your chosen field will be sent directly to your inbox.

1. CareerBuilder

CareerBuilder is one of the biggest job boards in Canada. It's search bar allows you to filter by location, degree required and pay range which helps you filter out those jobs that just aren't right for you. CareerBuilder partners with news media around the country and collects job listings from them. It also provides career advice and resources for candidates.

2. Eluta

Eluta is a Canadian search engine that features job postings from more than 10,000 employer's websites across Canada. Eluta provides links back to the original employers’ job postings. Candidates can sign up for email alerts that notify them of new jobs that match their search criteria.

3. Indeed

Indeed compiles listings from many job boards and makes it easier for you by putting it all in one place. It also compiles information from various company career pages and allows you to search locally or globally (maybe you want to work for a bakery in France -- mmmm, think of the baguettes!). This page allows you to have jobs sent directly to your email. Indeed is my personal favourite because I landed my position at Cambria after applying via Indeed!

4. Glassdoor

Glassdoor has a large database of company reviews and they're all submitted by employees. Glassdoor promotes itself as giving job seekers insights into a company’s work conditions, interview processes, salaries and benefits. Get to know what other people are saying about your employer -- knowledge is power!

5. Monster

Monster is one of the largest job sites because it has one of the highest numbers of job listings of any website. It also allows you to upload your resume and offers networking boards, as well as a search alert service so you can get targeted posts delivered via email.

6. Simply Hired

Simply Hired is a search engine that offers email alerts about new job postings and lets you save your job searches. You can sort your searches to focus on companies that appeal to you. For example, you can select companies that hire veterans, have a high rate of diversity and abide by eco-friendly practices, among other things. 

7. Workopolis

Workopolis is another large-scale site that offers weekly job alerts, job search advice, a resume builder and of course, job postings. It also allows you to upload your resume for hiring managers and recruiters to search.

Pro Tip: After exploring the above list of our favourite job search websites, you might want to consider registering with more than one site since each offers a slightly different experience and list of benefits ++

We're wishing you serious success on your hunt for a new job, good luck! Bon chance!
