March 3, 2003: workopolis.com
Workopolis, Canada’s leading provider of Internet recruitment and job-search solutions, offers a wealth of career-related content in addition to the ability to post a resume and search among some 31,000 job postings. On Workopolis, you can search for a job by keyword, location, and date.
Career resources on the site include sections in which you can “Ask a Career Advisor,” read the work of regular columnists, learn about moving to Canada, research an industry, find salary info, find a student job, share success stories, and find an MBA program. Most comprehensive of all is the Subject Guide, containing content on resum’s and interviews, quitting/getting fired/retiring, salary, benefits, working conditions, legal issues, searching and training for the job, life at work, and loads of sub-categories.
Workopolis switches from English into French at the click of a button and also provides a “Boss Panic Button,” presumably to change the image on your screen in case the boss is suddenly looking over your shoulder as you’re job-hunting on the site. We could not get the button to work consistently, though.
