Eluta – Scrape the intenet for new jobs

Bloggers Note:  I do not work for Eluta nor do I receive any money from them.  I just think it is a great site.

In this economic client, many talented folks are losing their jobs and looking for new opportunites.  I would like to share a great site that I share with others for finding new job postings. It is call Eluta and can be found at http://www.eluta.ca

Why I like it is that is ‘scrapes the internet’ for jobs found on company websites (not sites like Workopolis or Monster).  Thus, a company may adda new job to their website but not to one of the larger job sites.  Instead of having to go to each site, Eluta collects them all and puts them in one place.  Here is a description from their website:

As a vertical search engine, Eluta monitors new job announcements at tens of thousands of employers across Canada every day. Whenever an employer posts a new job on its website, Eluta adds the position to our searchable database.

Here is an example of how someone who is in the corporate training field could use it:

Go to the Eluta website

On the main page, instead of filling out the Search box, select Advanced Search:

In the Advanced Search field

  1. Select your Occupation (it also has a Quality Control occupation choice).
  2. I do not select top employer Top Employers as I do not want to restrict my search
  3. Add your city
  4. Select your Province
  5. Postal Code to start the search from your door
  6. I usually keep it within 50 km but if you don’t mind travelling further, then go right ahead.

So there you go.  You should get some results.  After that, take a look around at other Occupations or just do a plain search on all jobs.  Anyway, I hope this was helpful to anyone/everyone.
