Just because it’s free doesn’t mean it isn’t good – Part 4
Government resources

You can Google key words like “resume help”, “jobs in demand” or you can head straight to one of these sites designed just for that purpose, just for you, thanks to your tax dollars.

In the past several years governments have been revamping to improve online resources for job seekers, filling the void for free and objective career and job resources. A great example of this is the WorkBC website, a traditionally great resource for labour market information (salaries, job demand), learning about potential career paths (career and industry profiles), job postings, and tools for students and career explorers alike.

If you’re not from British Columbia, search online for your provincial job centre and you may discover a resource just as great.

At a national level, the Canadian government online career resources aren’t as robust but still provide insight in the labour market outlook, career exploration tools and job postings.

At the local level, be sure to ask at your community library what career resources they offer – I guarantee you’ll be surprised at the wealth of information on offer.
