SASKJOBS.CA HITS RECORD JOB POSTINGS
Job postings on SaskJobs.ca have doubled in just two months, with over 11,000 positions posted at the end of June. A campaign to promote SaskJobs.ca was launched in May with newspaper ads, billboards and a letter explaining the benefits of the site sent by Advanced Education and Employment Minister Pat Atkinson to over 32,000 employers across the province.
"The campaign's success reflects the many opportunities for people to find work and build their futures here, in Saskatchewan," Atkinson said. "Our province's economy is booming and the positions listed on SaskJobs.ca demonstrate the need for skilled workers to participate and support our growing economy."
SaskJobs.ca provides employers free access to the site where they can post job openings in Saskatchewan. Increases in job postings have been particularly high in Estevan (75 per cent), Saskatoon (65 per cent), North Battleford (61 per cent) and Regina (54 per cent).
SaskJobs.ca is part of SaskNetWork.ca that provides information about careers, education and training options, and labour market opportunities in Saskatchewan. SaskNetWork.ca is accessed nearly four million times each year, making it one of the busiest career planning, education and employment web sites in Canada.
