Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 10, 2009
Connecting employers with job-seekers in their own community is easy and effective with the recruitment experts at LocalWork.ca.
Working close to home boosts work-life balance, the environment and the local economy.
The newly launched LocalWork.ca draws on the time-tested recruitment knowledge of Metroland Media Group Ltd.'s network of more than 100 local community newspapers and websites to be the premier source for linking local employers with the talent they need.
With LocalWork.ca, job seekers enjoy free access to a comprehensive database of available work close to where they live. The easy-to-use site features jobs in fields including administration, retail, customer service, hospitality, healthcare, skilled trades, technical, construction and general labour.
Job alerts ensure local candidates catch all postings in their customized career alert selections, and when they find the right one, they can apply directly through the site.
Need inspiration? Career advice from effective resume writing to legal issues in the workplace is available through smart, professional articles drawn from Metroland's trusted print publications.
Employers pay a small flat rate to post a job, or if they need to post a large volume of jobs, LocalWork.ca will design a custom posting package to fit their needs. Postings on LocalWork.ca instantly access Metroland's deep reach in large local markets from Toronto to Hamilton through to smaller communities such as Aurora. All communities in Ontario are covered.
"Many of the larger pay-for-post national sites have good content in larger metropolitan areas but they fall short in cities like Newmarket or Oshawa," said Peter Mattei, director of online employment classifieds, Metroland Media Group Ltd. "Free sites can do a better job, but the quality of content can be a concern. We feel we've hit the mark with LocalWork.ca, by offering recruitment advertisers and job seekers a simple and effective online recruitment experience and feedback from our users confirms this."
LocalWork.ca helps employers manage applicants directly on the site, provides candidate short-listing tools, such as pre-screening questionnaires, and delivers the opportunity for an Employment Branding Profile with video display.
Employers can be as creative as they want in their postings , and if they have questions, our experts are there to help.
"LocalWork.ca is a natural extension of our print recruitment business. We offer great customer service at the local level that is unmatched in the industry," said Mattei. "People trust us, and we deliver, that's why we're so successful."
