The process of a job posting is frustrating, tedious and non-reliable for the employers based out of Canada. It can be a lot of work to deal with heaps of resumes, call up candidates to schedule and conduct interviews – and this does not always result into hiring the best fit. Just because several employers try to avoid the hiring process, nearly 80 percent of the employment opportunities never get listed.
These 80 percent of the unlisted jobs makeup “Canada’s hidden job market” and are generally accessed by the prospective employees through personal contacts or by social networking. The significance of personal contacts and networking cannot be stressed enough with regards to looking for some kind of employment in Canadian society.
Those who have exhausted their contacts and networks or those who are looking for an immediate employment opportunity; the advertised jobs are another option for securing an employment. The employers on an average spend only 20 -30 seconds to review a resume; henceforth it is important that while responding to an advertised employment offer, the potential candidate should submit a tailored resume along with separate cover letters for each position they are applying for. The candidate should also exhibit that he has the key skills and relevant experience required for the job, as outlined in the job description. Lastly, they should also discuss that why they are keen on working for a particular organization based on the research they conduct on the firm they wish to work for.
