MDB Insight and Vicinity Jobs launch Jobs Demand Report

(TORONTO, ON – September 19, 2013) MDB Insight has partnered with Vicinity Jobs Inc. to launch the Jobs Demand Report, bringing  local labour market intelligence to every community across Canada. Access to validated data about job demand in the local economy is an essential component to local labour market planning.

The real-time Jobs Demand Report gives insight into regional hiring trends, a key indicator of local economic activity, and offers valuable information to inform education and training decisions, local strategies for talent attraction and retention, and job seekers in their search for local employment.

In 2006, Vicinity Jobs Inc. launched one of Canada’s leading networks of community-centric job search engines. Each Vicinity Jobs web site serves a separate geographic community and uses the Vicinity Jobs industry-leading intelligence gathering technology platform for easy access to information from various websites about job openings and local employers. Vicinity Jobs portals also have traditional job board capabilities, enabling local employers to post jobs and connect with local job applicants.

“What makes the Vicinity Jobs platform so unique is its ability to enhance the information collected from the Internet by integrating it with databases like local employer lists,” said Trudy Parsons, director of workforce development at MDB Insight. “This data can then be classified using distinct criteria like education level, industry, occupation, or geographic location. All of this helps communities to answer the question ‘where are the jobs?'”
