Canada's Largest Job Search Engine Launched




The beta version of a new job search engine for the Canadian market-wowjobs.ca was launched today. We believe this tool will be of immense value to new immigrant and veteran Canadians alike.
Here's the formal press release:

Edmonton, AB June 12, 2006-
Wowjobs (http://www.wowjobs.ca) today released the beta version of its Job Search engine.
Wowjobs.ca is Canada's largest job search engine having more than 100,000 jobs available for searching. That makes wowjobs.ca the largest job search engine in the Canadian market, having more jobs than any other job search engine or job site.
According to Anuvinder Singh, founder of wowjobs.ca,
\"We don't want to eliminate the traditional job sites that the employers and candidates have grown so comfortable with. Our aim is to empower the Canadian job seeker by giving them the tools to perform an efficient and effective job search in the simplest possible way. With a single click, job seekers from across Canada can access almost all jobs pertinent to their search criteria. The days of searching multiple job sites for the same search criteria are clearly over.\"
The search experience on wowjobs.ca is very much similar to that of performing search on any major search engine.
The site provides ability to search by keywords, location (province, city or postal code). The site provides several tools to job seekers such as Email Alerts, RSS Feeds and Advanced Search. Users can also browse jobs by Location-city and province.
More job sites will be indexed and additional functionality will be added through out the beta phase, which is expected to last several months.

Yes, for sure. wowjobs.ca is larger than workoplis, monster.ca, careerbuilder, jobbank...all these combined. We crawl over hundred Canadian job boards, company sites and then index these jobs and make them ready for instant searching.
We have over 100,000 Active Canadian jobs available for searching, which is several times more than what's available at monster or workopolis.
Essentially, what we offer is a single stop job search solution. You don't need to go to different job boards to search for jobs. All the jobs that appear on any of the major job boards are automatically included in our search results.

But you bring back jobs that are listed at workopolis or any other career website. That implies you are throwing same job from same company but advertised on different websites. That does not increase number of jobs you get, it is like repeating jobs that are advertised at different location. Can your search engine eliminate duplication by reading company name and position?

Good point Charlie. There's some duplication, but not a whole lot. Some companies advertise on mulitple sites, but if you look at the number of jobs available on workopolis and monster and see their commonality, you'll find that a great number of jobs on these sites are different. Very few companies (only the biggest ones) can afford to advertise on mulitple job boards!
Having said that, we are improving our algorithms to flag duplicates using job 'similarlity' metrics. You'll see that imporvement in our results in the near future.
In the meantime, we think it's better to see a job twice rather than missing a job altogether!

Duplicates Filter
Just to let you guys know, we have recently implemented a duplicates fiter which should hopefully address the concern that was raised here.
