New features to come:
Future job openings on PEI & Post-Secondary student employment success stories
We are taking a new step in our goal of providing employment information on PEI.
Starting in the near future, we are going to give the business community an opportunity to advertise on our website. These advertisements will let job seekers know about jobs they are having difficulty filling, and their on-going hiring needs.
Also, we will provide post-secondary institutions on PEI and across Canada the opportunity to advertise on our website. These advertisements will let us know about the employment success of their students and graduates.
Job seekers have told us time and time again that they want to know more details about job opportunities beyond what is listed in job ads. They have also told us they want to find out about job search success stories.
So we are so excited to get going with this advertisement phase of The Employment Journey.
If you would like a tour of our website, please call 902-894-4100 and we will set up a time to meet.
If you are in the career development field, working directly with jobs seekers and/or students, an Employment Journey staff person would be happy to visit your location and do a presentation on our new website.
For more information, call Stacy Dunn at 902-894-4100 or Stella Shepard at 902-838-4106.
