INNOVATIVE CAREER PORTAL HELPS PEOPLE QUARTERBACK JOB SEARCH AND EASILY CREATE RESUMES

Workforce WindsorEssex’s WEjobs Portal and Resume Builder, in partnership with the City of Windsor, helps the community with job search process

Windsor, ON – Today, Workforce WindsorEssex launched the new WEjobs Portal and Resume Builder for jobseekers in the region, in partnership with the City of Windsor’s Employment and Social Services Department. The WEjobs Portal brings together Workforce WindsorEssex’s no-cost job finding and career development tools as well as the all-new Resume Builder tool, in a new user-centred and personalized job search platform that allows jobseekers to quarterback their job search across 50+ job boards simultaneously.

Jobseekers will benefit from the innovative WEjobs Portal with 24/7 access to their personalized job feed, which updates hourly with new opportunities based on the user’s career interests and types of jobs, companies, occupations, and industries they’re following. WEjobs Portal’s intuitive system allows users to follow and unfollow jobs, find related job suggestions, and remove jobs they’re not interested in. Users can configure their own skillset so it can be overlaid against all job postings in the system.

New skill badges, career jump badges, and related career badges will help experienced jobseekers pivot to another occupation easier. Employers who already post on one of the 50+ job boards the WEjobs Portal includes will have their job postings automatically shared with jobseekers without extra effort or additional cost. As a result, jobseekers will no longer have to search dozens of job boards, look at jobs they’ve already looked at the day before or on another website, or even repeat the same keyword searches over and over again.

Additionally, WEjobs Portal account users have access to the new Resume Builder tool, which makes creating a professional quality resume quick and easy. Jobseekers can create an unlimited number of resumes, customizing each one to a unique job, and transform their resume’s look and feel by switching between any of the nine different templates.

The WEjobs Portal and the Resume Builder are available online at Workforce WindsorEssex’s website. The tools are web-based, with no downloading required. While not an app, the website is mobile responsive and accessible.
