More than ever, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a need for connections of all kinds. Whether it’s a staying in touch with family and friends, reimagining how we work, or finding ways to connect businesses with the talent they need to continue operations. A number of resources are available to help build new connections, including Connecting YYC and YYC Student Connections.
Connecting YYC is a job board connecting opportunity seekers with immediate openings in Calgary, and allows companies looking for talent to post open positions.
Within the first month, Connecting YYC has had more than 300 jobs posted, with almost 7,000 individuals visiting the site. The job postings on the website range from positions in technology, agribusiness, operations, business development and more.
YYC Student Connections
Many students have had their summer employment plans altered due to the ongoing pandemic, but their skills are in high demand in the city. YYC Student Connections aligns Calgary businesses with open positions, with post-secondary students who are looking to gain practical experience in their field of study.
Within the first week of launching, the website has had more than 1,300 individuals visiting the site.
As Calgary looks towards gradually and safely reopening, businesses will need to continue to build connections as they innovate and adapt to the evolving landscape.
We encourage businesses in need of talent to post open positions on both websites. If you’ve been displaced by COVID-19 and are looking for work, visit the Connecting YYC website to find open positions. For students looking to gain practical experience, create and share your profile on YYC Student Connection so businesses can reach out to you.
