LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28, 2019 — ZipRecruiter, a leading online employment marketplace powered by AI matching technology, announced today that it has expanded its services to actively connect Canadian companies of all sizes with job seekers nationwide. The move, which helps address pain points on both sides of the historically tight Canadian labor market, is part of ZipRecruiter’s international expansion of its marketplace.
With Canada’s national unemployment rate near its forty-three year low at 5.8%, and more jobs being created than there are available workers, companies are struggling to fill open jobs, while job seekers in certain industries are facing localized shortages of job opportunities matching their skills and experience.
ZipRecruiter connects millions of job seekers to highly relevant jobs through its #1 rated job search app in Canada and partnerships with popular employment sites, including Google job search, Kijiji, and over 50 of the country’s top job boards. On the employer side of the labor market, the company’s dedicated local sales team supports the specific hiring needs of Canadian businesses of all sizes.
“We’re excited to further expand the reach of our AI-driven employment marketplace in Canada,” said Greg Isaacs, VP of International at ZipRecruiter. “With our highly proficient matching technology, top-rated mobile job search app and partnerships with leading companies, we are uniquely positioned to connect Canadian employers and job seekers to their next great opportunity.”
ZipRecruiter, which was named one of the world’s most innovative companies in 2019 by Fast Company, is rated #1 by U.S. employers* and, since 2010, has connected over 1.8 million businesses of all sizes with quality candidates.
*Based on TrustPilot ratings of hiring sites with over 1,000 reviews.
