Recent Trends in Canadian Manufacturing Jobs
Factory Jobs Are Available in Toronto for Those with the Appropriate Skill Sets
It should come as little surprise that market research and its resultant statistics can play a highly influential role in the operation of a business. Pricing decisions, wages/salaries, and staffing needs are some of the critical factors that are often affected by statistical averages published by private or governmental research agencies.
Sometimes, though, relying too heavily on such data, particularly those results that are reflective of more global or high-level trends, can lead to decisions/conclusions that may not be the most appropriate on a localized or even individual level. A case in point is the recent trending in manufacturing jobs in Canada.
It is a well-accepted fact that the manufacturing industry as a whole has been adversely affected by a weaker Canadian dollar, rising oil prices, and offshore competition in recent years – such that there has been a correspondingly significant decline in this industry’s workforce. Recently, albeit depending on the producer of the report and the time period for which their research was conducted, factory jobs in this country have been reported at near record lows.
However, a closer examination of this data would indicate that there are certain areas of the country that could be experiencing some recovery in the manufacturing sector, most notably Quebec and Ontario, based on growth seen in manufacturing sales within these industry sectors during the first quarter of this year:
- Food products
- Petroleum refining
Without this insight, those who may be interested in factory jobs in Toronto and the GTA could be misled and/or discouraged from pursuing such employment by a less-than-rosy picture painted by aggregate data and/or national averages.
This is not to say that factory jobs abound in Toronto and the surrounding area, but such work is available for qualified people wishing to enter or advance in the manufacturing industry.
In order to attain their goals, job seekers will benefit from the services of a job agency that has the requisite networking and experience to successfully place individuals in manufacturing-related positions. Winters Technical Staffing in Toronto is one such agency, based on 40+ years of experience in matching the skills of job hunters with the hiring needs of employers throughout the manufacturing industry.
A Job Agency Dedicated to Placing Qualified Candidates in Manufacturing Roles
Finding suitable employment through a self-search can be a challenging task at the best of times. Scouring print and online sources for job postings, preparing and sending out resumes, and conducting follow-up activities are necessary yet time-consuming elements of such an approach – all with no guarantee of a positive outcome. And this can be even more frustrating when the opportunities are more limited while the number of candidates vying for those positions is the same or greater.
The expertise and experience of a job agency dedicated to serving the manufacturing industry would be a viable and likely more successful alternative to self-search methods. Supported by more than 40 years of recruiting experience within this industry, Winters Technical Staffing offers a number of benefits to job seekers in Toronto, including:
- A thorough knowledge of the industry and its employers
- Strong networking and relationships with hiring managers
- Awareness of a wider range of employment opportunities
- Familiarity with the skills needed to succeed in factory jobs
- Access to opportunities from entry-level to executive levels
- Flexibility to fulfill permanent, temporary, and contract roles
- Potential to confirm placements in the shortest time possible
One additional and important advantage over a self-search is the fact that a job agency often has knowledge of positions currently available in Toronto that are not otherwise made known to the general public.
