Event Summary:   
BC Job Connect: Connecting Employers to an Untapped Talent Pool
With a tight labour market situation, do you want to connect to an untapped talent pool? This session will show you how via BC JobConnect. BC JobConnect has been developed by the Immigrant Employment Council of BC (IEC-BC), and is delivered in Kelowna through a partnership with KCR.

What is BC JobConnect? 
Hint: An easy-to-use web-based tool for employers looking to hire; an opportunity to access an untapped talent pool; a way to build a diverse and inclusive workplace.
How does it work?
Hint: Registered employers are able to identify job candidates of interest based on profile information and supporting documents uploaded job seeking newcomers.
What are the benefits?
Hint: Constantly updated pool of talent; free service; flexible, multi-parameter searches; ongoing support from KCR employment services.
