Use Niche Jobs Boards In Tandem With Employment Agencies In Toronto
The task of looking for a new job can be an overwhelming and often frustrating process. At first glance, the employment landscape in Toronto and the GTA may appear to be teeming with opportunities, whether the job seeker is:
- A student trying to land part-time employment
- A recent graduate entering the workforce for the first time, or
- A seasoned veteran interested in making a career change
To gain an appreciation for the scope of potential employment opportunities, especially in Toronto, one only needs to access these popular online job boards and/or agencies:
However, these massive or mega-sized job boards tend to be all-encompassing in terms of the breadth of employment opportunities listed – this can make the searching process quite laborious/time consuming, particularly for those who have a clear definition in mind of the type of position or job that best suits their interests. Such sites are also visited by untold numbers of job seekers on a daily basis, making the pool of potential competitors for each opportunity very extensive to say the least.
Therefore, for individuals seeking the right job, rather than just a job, it may be much more efficient to search through niche job boards that distinctly align with their specific needs and interests. These niche boards can be located via targeted online searches, regional or national associations for a particular field/discipline, or an employment agency like Winters Technical Staffing.
Utilizing these niche job boards, in tandem with the support of employment agencies in Toronto, can help job seekers streamline their search efforts and more readily ‘hone in’ or ‘drill down’ to find the specific job that would help fulfill/achieve their goals and ambitions.
Using Niche Job Boards Through Employment Agencies Has Several Advantages
Niche job boards can best be described as websites that are oriented or targeted toward a specific subject or audience. They are used by job seekers, employment agencies, and employers alike to match candidacy with clearly defined job opportunities.
For job seekers, there are several advantages to using niche boards in tandem with the expertise and the resources of local employment agencies.
- The capability to access job listings for specific industries or locations only
- Inclusion of job opportunities that may not be listed on the mega-boards
- There will likely be fewer qualified candidates competing for these positions
- There is a greater probability that high quality resumes/candidates will stand out
- Employers may be more amenable to direct contact (versus a general mailbox)
- Demonstrates candidate preparedness/commitment to the industry or employer
In general, niche job boards, whether they are accessed independently or by networking through with an employment agency, can be valuable assets in streamlining a job search as well as obtaining the right job rather than just settling for any job.
