Black Press launches employment website
Black Press media group has recently launched LocalWork.ca, a job and resume website for employers and job seekers.
“LocalWork.ca offers job seekers and employment advertisers an exciting new platform that is easier to use and provides a nationally recognized brand,” says Randy Blair, Black Press’s president of the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island newspaper divisions. “LocalWork.ca provides award-winning features and options that will enhance the entire online employment experience, and continues to provide the proven effectiveness of print recruitment advertising that is tailored to meet the advertisers’ needs and budget.”
LocalWork.ca is operated through a partnership between Black Press and Metroland Media Group Ltd.
LocalWork.ca has already been filling the local recruitment and job search needs of job seekers and recruitment advertisers. With its 190 community and daily newspapers, Black Press will add to LocalWork.ca’s already extensive coverage and market, and will add valuable resources and services for our users.
Black Press also owns and operates BC Classifieds and BCClassified.com, and the Used Everywhere network.
LocalWork.ca’s mission is to deliver the best local job opportunities for employees-to-be, a simple and effective job search and recruitment advertising experience, and the best customer service in the job search industry.
“With one entry, I was able to place the ad both on the web and in the specific papers I wanted the ad to appear in,” said Sharon Wales from CertainTeed Gypsum Canada Inc. “The replies I received were from a wide variety of individuals and we were able to select quite a few candidates that we wished to interview from the many received.”
