No matter what it is, this guide will give you the resources in applying for that ‘right’ job just for you!

Why do I want to work?

When do I want to work?

What do I want to work for?
Of course, you can go hunting for a job while wearing a dress/suit all day or you can do it all in your home.

This is primarily BC employment, but for people outside the province, here is an alternate reference: JobFutures.ca and JobFutures.org.

On Demand Reference
Work Futures [BC] - This is an excellent resource for people in BC, it provides comprehensive description of British Columbia's labour market.

Field of Interest
CareerCruising.com - An informational and descriptive website for finding a career that you want to pursue.

Job Listings
Monster.ca - This website is one of many popular and benifitial websites for job listing offers for people to companies.

Workopolis.com - Canada's biggest job site for people who are looking for employment. It is a way of looking for jobs that are on demand in Canada.

Working.com - Another online employment listing website. The website also focuses on students in need for a job in the summer.

JobPostings.ca - Not as popular as the other job posting websites, but this website targets fellow students who would like to work.

Campus Workopolis - A job posting website specifically for students, great, time to get that campus job!

Job Bank of Canada - Government employment, a great way to secure yourself in a government job.

Working - Canada - Employment listing in Canada.

Craigslist.org - A ton of jobs listed in this website, but it's not regulated under company, please use it at your own risk.

As you can see, there are a ton of employing websites looking for people like you.
