nv employment website Job Vacancy Alerts are the latest tool for the unemployed to find information on potential job vacancies.
It’s a key tool for many employers to see if they can find employees with similar skills and interests.
“There are so many different things that employers want to know,” said Kevin Meehan, the chief operating officer of Nova Scotia’s job vacancy website.
“Somebody might have been out of work for four weeks, or someone might be unemployed for five months, or they might have a really long unemployment period.”
With that in mind, job vacancy alerts can help employers find qualified candidates who are looking for a new role, or find job candidates who might be able to find work on a part-time basis.
They can also be used to inform employees about upcoming job fairs, career fairs and events.
Meechan said they’re often used by employers to gauge whether or not they need to hire someone, or if there are vacancies in a specific area.
“They’re pretty accurate.
They’re not very good at telling if someone’s just looking for another job or they’re actually looking for something different,” he said.
“But I think there’s a lot of people who do use them.”
The unemployment website is a bit of a complicated system.
It has a list of different jobs, and a “categories” field where people can select what they’re looking for, including: technical, creative, business, administrative, management, technical support, technical services, clerical, and sales and customer service.
The site also has a search field for finding specific keywords.
For example, someone could type “labor market job search” and the site will suggest a job matching a specific keyword, like “technical job search.”
However, the site also gives the option to look at all job postings and find out what’s out there.
It also has an hourly job listing that’s filled with job openings, which employers can view online.
The unemployment site can be accessed from a number of locations across the province, including the provincial Job Centre, Nova Scotia Public Library, Job Vacant, and the Nova Scotia Government Employment Service.
The online vacancy site has a small number of vacancies that are filled on a daily basis, according to Meehans office.
“So that’s an indication that it’s a very, very good job market,” he added.
“It’s a job market that’s actually growing, so that’s a good sign.”
The province’s job vacancies website has also been used by local government, including for the city of Halifax and the Halifax Regional Municipality.
MEEHANS office also uses the website to track job vacancies in Nova Scotia.
“The site is constantly growing and changing.
So we keep checking it every day, but we’re also using it as a way to keep track of what’s going on, so we can stay up to date,” he explained.
“We do that through an online app that has information about jobs in the province that employers can see.”
The Job Vacance Alerts also have a number on them, like the Halifax City Job Vacation Job Vacancies, which has more than 1,600 vacancies.
The Nova Scotia Employment and Training Services also uses a variety of online job vacancy sites.
Meeshan said that job vacancies are a valuable tool for employers.
“In the past year or two, we’ve seen a lot more people looking for full-time work,” he noted.
“For us, it’s important to keep people employed, because it’s very important for the economy.”
