site Simply Hired recently launched its new page geared toward Canadian users. The site is expected to include over 150,000 job announcements gathered from a variety of job boards, content-based websites, newspapers, job organizations and company career pages throughout the country. Currently this job search
site has over seven million job announcements listed for locations all over the world.
“The launch of the Canada website is an integral part of Simply Hired’s effort to expand our mission in building the largest worldwide job search engine.” said the site’s co-founder and CEO Gautam Godhwani in a recent press release. “We want to continue making the job search
process a positive experience globally and leverage the successful business model we have built in the U.S.”
Unlike many career sites where employers must sign up to have their job posted, Simply Hired pulls listings from the web and gives users the ability to access the all in one place. Since many businesses only list their openings on one or two sites, this can significantly decrease the amount of time a job seeker spends trying to find positions on the Internet. Users only have to enter a keyword and a location in the provided search field and Simply Hired yields results the job seeker would not be able to access unless they used multiple sites.
In addition to being a time saver, SimplyHired.ca also has several features that make finding a job easier. Users can filter their results by location, job type, education and experience. An advanced search option is also available that allows job seekers to weed out positions that don’t match their specific criteria. Preferences can also be set so that a search only returns jobs that were added after the last checked the website.
“Simply Hired not only wants to provide consumers with a tool to simplify their job search
, but can benefit employers and publishers as well,” said Sachin Shah, who is the company’s Director of Product Management. “As we expand globally, we intend to create solutions that will continue to benefit the whole Internet recruitment industry.”
Aside from maintaining their own network of job sites, Simply Hired also powers the job channel for MySpace UK
and supplements LinkedIn
’s job board with positions from a variety of different countries.
