Universities and Colleges
Magnet’s vision is to help advance careers, businesses, and communities nation-wide.
Initially, Magnet was designed in early 2014 to bridge the gap between post-secondary recruitment and the ability of students to relay their applied skills to real labour market needs. The job-matching technology was tailored to effectively communicate student’s experiences, accomplishments, skills and education to potential employers. Magnet now serves all Canadians and utilizes an advanced blind recruitment model that can effectively, and efficiently job-match people with opportunities reflecting their skills, preferences and talent.
With this technology, Magnet is committed to addressing the unemployment and under-employment of youth, newcomers to Canada, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and other individuals facing barriers to employment. Magnet allows job seekers to privately and securely self-identify as a member of any employment equity group, promoting diversity and supporting bias free recruitment strategies.
