Over the next few months WorkBC will be getting a makeover. The site functionality and content will not be changing much, but the layout and design will be dramatically different. This change is the result of previous user feedback. Many users found it challenging to navigate WorkBC, and so we're hoping to make the site more user friendly. For this reason, we’d like to ask you a few questions to see what areas we should be focusing on.
The above questions are just a few examples. If you have any feedback that we did not address above we'd still love to hear from you! Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below! With your input we can help make WorkBC even better!
Admin: Thank you to the user who uncovered the possible confusion between the WorkBC Employment Centres and WorkBC.ca’s job listing sites. WorkBC.ca is developed and maintained by the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training. WorkBC.ca is the official Province of British Columbia‘s one-stop job listing site. The employment centres are contracted out by the Ministry of Social Development, who are allowed to use the WorkBC brand on their respective sites. For the most part, the sites belonging to the WorkBC Employment Centres will direct you to WorkBC.ca to perform a job search or post a job. If this is not the case, we will aim to touch base with the contractors whose sites have additional job postings, so that we can promote and include these on WorkBC.ca as well. Let us know which employment offices have jobs that differ from WorkBC.ca, and we will work with them to eliminate any further confusion for clients.
Admin: In regards to the contractor office having its own Job Listing page, I will definitely look into the reasons behind this and I'll try to have an answer for you soon. We'll also look into providing more information about the workspace in our future design plans.
Admin: Wow some great feedback! Thanks for commenting. Okay I'll try to address some of these issues. Job Search improvements are forthcoming so you will soon be able to search by occupation and we are rolling out a distance search mechanism as well. We will definitely look into making the blog more prominent as well.
As a new employer posting jobs on your site, I had no idea that the "workspace" was where I could view all the jobs I posted. More information for clarity when posting on the site would be helpful.
an observation. My local WorkBC office/contractor has its own online job listing. This listing is totally different from the official Work BC job listing. Seeing as both are part of Work BC should the info not be shared? One other question that comes to mind is why some employers are choosing one over the other.
It would be great to be able to search jobs by occupation instead of by keyword. I'm trying to see where the jobs are in my field.
I was directed to your blog postings by one of your employees at the call center. While they are very helpful for me as an employer, I had a hard time finding them. I wish you would make information like this more obvious on your website.
I'm not a big fan of the job search. When I just want to search jobs in Vancouver I get jobs in Surrey and Burnaby. I want to see a feature that lets us choose a postal code as our starting point and then lets us select a distance.
