TorontoJobs.ca - Should You Visit Toronto Jobs?
Toronto jobs is as the name suggests a job search and career resources website focussed on the Greater Toronto district.
For anyone seeking work in that area, this certainly makes job-seeking easier, as reducing the geographical options widens the range of criteria you can use in an advanced search.
Searching Toronto Jobs
From the home page, you can start a quick search or opt for an advanced search. We recommend clicking on the 'Advanced Search' link, which is underneath the 'Search' button, as this gives you far more options and allows you more fine-tuning.
The advanced job search allows you to search by:
- Keyword - can be left blank if for instance you wanted to see all of the job adverts in a particular category.
- Job category - definitely worth selecting if you fit into one of their categories.
- Type of job - contract, full-time, intern, part-time, student, temporary or voluntary.
- Age of advert - useful if you want to exclude older adverts.
- Salary range.
Other Resources on TorontoJobs.ca
You are also able to search the listing of employment and recruitment agencies in the Toronto district - useful if you aren't already signed up with some suitable agencies.
If you decide to register, you can also post your resume so that it can be viewed by employers / recruiters. You can also sign-up for their Jobmail service that will notify you of suitable job vacancies that match the criteria you select.
They list future career fairs on a dedicated web page on their website, which is great if you'd like to actually meet potential employers and recruiters face-to-face.
Visit the Careers Resources section and you can view a range of articles offering tips in areas such as interviews, networking, resume writing, job searching and career planning.

Information for Recruiters / HR / Employers:
Toronto Jobs' special offering is that your job advert will be posted on the site, but will also appear on the meta-search, accessible from five different websites, and in a number of employment-related newsgroups. For more information visit: www.torontojobs.ca
A simple, scaled range of advertising packages is offered. Listing a single job for 30 days costs CA$295, while five jobs listed for the same period costs CA$795. You can list your job in up to 3 of their job categories, which is rather useful if your job could be categorised by job seekers in a number of different ways.
Your job advert will be sent to registered job seekers who have expressed an interest in this kind of work - Toronto Jobs resends your advert every 4 days, so it doesn't get lost.
To access their database of resumes costs CA$295 for 2 weeks and CA$495 for 30 days. You can view an unlimited number of resumes during your access term, but the site does not tell you how many resumes are currently posted by registered job seekers in each of the categories you may be interested in.
Other Services for Employers / Recruiters
You can be their 'Featured Employer' of the month, which will give your employer brand far more exposure on their site.
Their 'Feature Job' listing status can give your job greater exposure, meaning you'll receive far more applications.
An Agency Directory is specifically for any agency that wants to raise its profile in the Toronto district and enables job seekers that use TorontoJobs.ca to quickly find your listing.
Banner adverts can also be purchased to be displayed across the whole of the Toronto Jobs website.
