Early this year, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that SaskJobs.ca would be migrating to the federal government online job back, National Job Bank. The result of the transition provides many new and enhanced services including job matching, job alerts, online resume builder, career planning tools, labour market information and intelligence, a visibly accessible site in both official languages, self-help support and increased security features. Although the transition provides many enhanced features, employers and some job seekers have also found it not user friendly and more difficult to post jobs. As a result of these concerns, the provincial government reprieved SaskJob.ca for six months. Over that time, the government will work with employers to look at innovative ways to keep the front end of the SaskJobs while still harnessing the backend functionality of the federal job bank.
On June 4th, Alastair MacFadden, Deputy Minister of Immigration and Career Training with the Government of Saskatchewan along with representatives from the National Job Bank spoke to Chamber Executives from throughout Saskatchewan explaining the reason for the transition, and the increased security. They also were very open to answering questions and listening to the concerns Chambers are hearing from their members.
The Prairie Sky Chamber is in the process of having a Service Canada representative present and answer any questions you may have regarding the SaskJobs.ca transition to the National Job site at one of our upcoming events. Please stay tuned for details. In the meantime, if you are having issues with the new job site, we would encourage you to view the National Job Bank Support videos to help you with the process.
