Previously, data on job vacancies were available only quarterly and were not available for every month. Starting in October 2020, data will be available both monthly and quarterly. Monthly data will be tabulated by province, sector, and occupation, while quarterly data will be released two months after the reporting month. Both methods will also allow users to compare vacancy levels over time.
Job vacancies are typically listed in two categories: permanent and contract. Permanent roles are salaried positions and provide the best employment rights. The number of permanent job vacancies is at its highest level since records began in 2001. The highest percentage increases are seen in the motor vehicle repair and retail sectors. This is good news for those looking to find a career with a company.
To apply for a position, an applicant must meet certain qualifications set by the Division of Personnel. They must also provide supporting documentation. For example, only educational qualifications from accredited institutions can be accepted. In this case, applicants will need to attach a copy of their diploma or college credits to the application. Experience must also be specified on the application.
When the organisation has a vacancy, the person responsible for hiring creates an advertisement that contains basic information about the position. The advertisement includes the job title, the job description, the company name, and contact information. It may also indicate whether a resume is required, how to apply, and the potential salary.
Job seekers can also find job openings by searching for online job sites. These websites are excellent sources of near-real-time job vacancy data. These sites also provide data about the typical pay and education requirements for the post. Using these tools, job seekers can make a more informed decision about what job to apply for.
Unemployment and vacancy rates are important indicators of the tightness of the labour market. If they are high, then the labour market may be experiencing a skills shortage. Using the unemployment-to-vacancy ratio can help measure this trend. It can also indicate the length of time that a position will remain vacant.
Hiring metrics help organizations measure the efficiency of recruitment. The average time it takes to fill a job vacancy can give an indication of how effective the recruitment process is. By tracking the average time to fill a job, companies can make the most of their recruitment resources and reduce their hiring costs. This data is crucial for ensuring realistic business planning.
In addition to job boards, many companies also post jobs internally. They may have an internal promotion process or schedule interviews based on employee referrals.
