If you plant to relocate to Collingwood-Blue Mountain, chances are you might also be embarking on a job hunt. Where do you find a job in the area?
You can begin by searching online at well known sites such as Workopolis, Monster and Local Work. You can also check the Service Canada Job Bank and of course the local newspapers in the area which all have online editions.
Some local employers, such as Blue Mountain Resort post available jobs on line. The same would apply for many of the local municipalities, health care services, military bases and engineering firms among others.
If you are earnest in your job search, you might want to start by researching the businesses that exist and then, details about them. An excellent source can be found at Community Connection.
If you are interested in self-employment, there are some excellent resources to assist you in the area including the Small Business Enterprise Centre and, the Centre for Business. Of course, we are always happy to help in this area as well with local information, lease rates, business opportunities and such.
I’ve saved my best tip for last. Use Google Alerts. If you enter for example, Collingwood, ON or Meaford or Wasaga Beach, you will receive alerts that may include job postings, notices about new businesses and other information that could trigger a new idea or direction for you.
