Saskjobs.ca is well ahead of schedule in 2009 with over 3 million people seeking jobs in Saskatchewan so far this year. A mere 158 days into the year the 3 million mark has been met, way ahead of 2008's mark of 3 million in 276 days.
Saskatchewan is proving itself to be the land of opportunity with having very low unemployment rates and a rise in employment rates.
Saskatchewan has recorded its highest employment levels for 38 months in a row. Out of province vistors to Saskjobs.ca has increased in leaps and bounds with an increase of Ontario visitors by 262 per cent from 2009. Other provinces that have increased dramatically with usage on the site are Alberta with 101 per cent and British Columbia up almost 200 per cent. The website is also seeing visitors from outside of the country and these visitors to the website are up 87 per cent.
Some people write and believe that jobs are decreasing in Saskatoon, however I know many large companies who are hiring new workers. There are people who focus on the negative with different large companies and their 'lay offs' but we also have to remember that lay offs are a yearly occurance for many companies like Sask Potash Corp.
I think many Saskatoon realtors (r) would agree with me that the influx of people are coming to jobs in Saskatoon, not moving here without having work.
