How to Find Government Jobs in Canada
One of the best places to look for employment is the Canadian government,
which has need for employees at every level, and in almost any field you can
think of. Everything from scientists and computer experts, to cooks and
janitors, from military positions, to clinical psychologists and doctors of
medicine. No matter what your education level, or preferred field, there may
be a government job out there for you.
Finding a government job is not necessarily all that difficult as long as you
know were to look, and you have the right job skills. Various mechanisms
have been set up at all levels of government to help recruit employees in
many different fields. At the federal level, one of the first places to check
would be the Public Service commission website, which has a large listing of
jobs available. This list is always updated and very useful. Each governmental
department also has a website, which they use to post job listings, so you
may want to check the site of the department you would most like to work for
and see if their are any jobs that fit your requirements.
At the Provincial and Municipal level, a web based search of the province or
municipality you are most interested in would be the first place to start. If you
can't find something there, try a web search of the of all the specific
departments you are interested in for that area. Keep a close eye on these
sites, because government jobs are often snatched up quickly once they
become available. You may also want to look for a job the old fashioned way,
by going to specific government offices in your area and seeing if they need
workers. You should keep an ear open to find out about any government job
openings in your area from friends and family.
People tend to hold on to government jobs once they have them, so positions
may not become available very often. These jobs tend to have great benefits,
and usually they pay well, so they're worth going to the trouble of finding and
securing one. Hopefully these tips can expedite that process and help you
find gainful employment with a government agency in your area.
