Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) December 16, 2011
This week, employment in the Canadian Federal Public Service has become more attainable for many interested job seekers thanks to the launch of the http://www.GOCTEST.ca website. GOCTEST is a website service where visitors can subscribe to browse a database of over 5000 questions actually used in Federal Government job interviews. Covering countless types of positions and branches of government, GOCTEST has emerged as a perfect web resource for anyone looking to work in the public service.
With more and more jobs being cut in the Federal Government, those applying for positions need to be more prepared and more competitive than ever. GOCTEST aids job seekers by helping them get ready for the types of questions that they will get asked. Through doing this, GOCTEST hopes to help put deserving candidates into important roles in the public service.
GOCTEST founder, Yannick Wega also sees this as important for ensuring that high quality workers are placed in Public Service positions. "By providing applicants to Public Service jobs with these questions, we also help them know what kind of work they need to be prepared for. They find out ahead of time what will be expected of them. If you have a candidate who is not only prepared to answer your questions, but have actively researched and bettered themselves in those areas; you don't just have a better interviewer, you have a better worker. It also works both ways, potential employees can now know what it takes to work in a specific role. They see the questions, get an idea of the work, and if they don't think they would be a good fit they can avoid the position entirely. Instead of finding out six months down the line that you took the wrong job, you can know before and avoid applying. It gives us better government workers, more efficient departments, and more employment satisfaction."
GOCTEST has launched earlier this week and the website and has already stirred up some attention in the Ottawa area. As a predominantly government employed town, GOCTEST seeks to get the majority of its success in the Ottawa and Gatineau area. The majority of federal government jobs are in that area, and thus the highest potential viewership for the website. The owning company, TopTest Inc. have high hopes for the new web service and estimate it will have very high usage. GOCTEST has been identified as being highly useful for several core markets. Students or younger workers who are seeking an entry level position will be able to find countless questions geared towards their employment level. Private sector workers, individuals new to Canada, or other specialized professionals who would be more suited to higher level positions will be able to find questions for specific branches and higher level jobs. Finally, existing Federal Government employees can also make use of the service if they are interviewing for a promotion and wish to prepare for higher level management positions. By appealing to these different users, GOCTEST hopes to become the most highly used resource among those seeking Public Service employment.
