Manitoba launches online tool to match employers and students for jobs

By | May 28, 2020

The Manitoba government on Thursday launched an online tool to match students looking for job opportunities with employers who need help.

“Summer jobs are important for youth in not only helping pay for an education, but for building life skills and developing future career interests,” Premier Brian Pallister said.

“Employers also benefit from hiring students, who can bring energy and new perspectives to their operations and assist them greatly in rebounding from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This new tool will help bring them together.”

Student Jobs MB helps students apply for multiple jobs with the click of a button, the province said. Private-sector employers, not-for-profit organizations and governments can post jobs and connect directly with students, Pallister said.

The website also will be the primary source used by the province to connect students with government summer jobs.

“As Manitoba restores services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, students can be an important resource to help employers reopen,” said Economic Development and Training Minister Ralph Eichler.
