On these sites you can post a job either directly (as with craigslist) or by registering with the site and then submitting your job posting. If the site is not a free service this is indicated. This page differs from the agencies page because the sites on this page simply offer you a place to post your job and/or collect resumes and applications. They do not perform any evaluation of potential employees past this point.
- craigslist – is this a worthwhile resource? do ‘real’ employers actually use it? I won’t give my opinion but will say that I have seen legitimate jobs posted on craigslist and the service is free for posters
- WorkBC – this provincial government site offers employers a free job posting service
- you don’t need to be a VIATeC member to submit jobs to their job board but it will cost you more than twice as much ($225 versus $100) to do so if you are not, emphasis is on high-tech jobs, memberships start at $370 plus $5 per employee in the company to a maximum of $1,050 with special rates for startups and businesses located north of the Malahat
- Workopolis – as of July 2013 a 30-day posting of a job in Western Canada is $595 (wow!)
- Monster.ca – is $20 cheaper than Workopolis ($575 for 30 days) but doesn’t seem to have a pricing scheme that has varying pricing depending where in Canada you are
