The new WorkBC app is giving British Columbians another tool to find job openings.
“Approximately 80,000 British Columbians use WorkBC services annually,” said Nicholas Simons, Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction.
The app was developed after feedback from clients and service providers asking for a faster, easier way to access employment services online, the ministry said.
“The new WorkBC app will make it easier for individuals looking for employment or career assistance to get the services they need, including assistive technology, financial supports and career opportunities, from their android or iOS phones or tablets.”
Through the app, users can explore career options, browse career profiles, access education and training opportunities such as trade certification, and communicate securely with employment counsellors at their local WorkBC Centre.
The app can be downloaded through the App Store, or Google Play, and users can sign in with the BC Services Card app or a Basic BCeID account any time of day.
