AWIC is Algoma’s local workforce planning board and as such it provides accessible, relevant and local analysis on employment, workforce and economic trends. Via its new website, AWIC is providing access to a suite of labour market tools including a Job Board that aggregates job postings into one spot from over 30 local, regional, provincial and national job banks along with tools for researching in-demand occupations and potential career paths.
‘We have been producing reports based on online job postings for the past few years but these new tools have taken that to the next level’, says Jonathan Coulman, Executive Director of AWIC. ‘By allowing visitors to AWIC.ca to not only look through job postings for all of Algoma in one spot, the tools also allow visitors to do a deeper dive into researching occupations, career paths and the first-hand experiences of people working in a variety of jobs around Algoma.’
AWIC’s website, the new suite of Career Tools and current labour market research can be accessed at awic.ca
Teachers and Career Counselors who are interested in more information about the Career Tools can contact AWIC at [email protected].
