This is particularly a platform for the Canadians where they can go and figure out the skills that they need to develop in order to get a secure job in the future. There is no doubt that the job market is dramatically changing and so we need to update ourselves accordingly and this platform will help individuals to understand that transition that they need over the time to bag their dream jobs in future.

Job Search would be linked with other professional platforms at Glassdoor, Linkedin etc
This feature will directly appear within the existing search engine of Google. And users can type in their queries in the form of government jobs, jobs near me, work from home jobs or jobs in Canada. No sooner than the user searches using one of the terms or any other work related query, than Google will show them the web pages which it determines to be perfect for job postings.
This platform will work in tandem with the employment sites including BC jobs, Glassdoor, Monster and LinkedIn to work as a one stop shop for all job hunters. This will help job searchers to save a lot of time, which is otherwise wasted in searching for jobs all around. At the same time, it will allow the job hunters to set up the email notifications for instant alert for new job posting, which is difficult in case of having multiple accounts on various job platforms.
