Offering employers an opportunity to post jobs to your MC | Job Board at no charge is a great way to show your support and ensure that posting continues, even during a time when many industries are struggling financially. Our inspiration for this suggestion comes from the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce in Victoria, BC.
Their Director of Operations, Cheryl Wirch-Ryckman, shared that the Greater Victoria area went from the lowest unemployment in Canada to thousands laid off and unemployed in a matter of days. Providing members with a discount code to post jobs on their board for free is a temporary measure mandated by their CEO with focused around support for businesses in healthcare who are desperate for staff. They’re also hoping to cross-pollinate with staffing in their hospitality sector who have largely been laid off.
