The Work in Simcoe County portal also aids recruitment efforts by highlighting which jobs are in current demand to employers and local government, and helps fill market gaps using the Edge Factor Community Hub, housed under the Career Exploration tab.
The Edge Factor Community Hub provides local job seekers, parents and educators a suite of free multimedia tools, including interactive activities and inspiring stories for various STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) careers focusing on skilled trades. The tools help jobseekers explore diverse, modern industries to discover what careers are are of interest to an individual.
This page is available to anyone in Simcoe County (via local postal codes). Secondary schools in the Simcoe County District School Board and Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board are actively using this tool in their virtual classrooms.
