Looking for that perfect candidate or applying for that dream job has never been easier
 
The Summerside Economic Development office has a robust tool that matches employers and employees and taps into markets far and wide.

What’s different about this tool is that it provides both job candidates and employers with a one-stop supply-and-demand job hub to connect the right candidate to the right job — quickly, accurately, and efficiently.

Job seekers sign up by completing a profile and are then provided with tailored job postings that match their skills, qualifications, and job preferences. The system is designed to have job opportunities “chase” candidates, meaning that every time a suitable job is posted, qualified candidates are automatically notified.

Another unique feature is that every candidate’s identity is shielded until they decide to communicate with a potential employer about a job opening. Summerside’s labour matching tool allows individuals to privately self-identify as a member of any designated employment equity group they belong to.

For businesses large and small, the labour tool network provides a fast, cost-effective, and easy-to-use channel to post a job and tap into the supply of qualified talent they need. After an employer posts a job, the innovative technology provides the company with a pre-screened list of top candidates who meet the specified skills requirements and have expressed an interest in the position. The system also lowers search costs and allows companies to remain connected to qualified candidates even if those companies are not currently hiring.

“In an increasingly competitive economic landscape, improving local and regional employment and labour market outcomes are among Summerside’s most important challenges,” says Mike Thususka, Director of the Summerside Economic Development office. “Our future prosperity is endangered by chronic levels of unemployment and under‐employment. Furthermore, skilled workers are struggling to find meaningful employment without leaving the city or province. Without coordinated and collective action, there may be an exodus of talent, eroding Summerside’s most competitive advantage.”
