Techvibes is the go-to place for tech news, events, and jobs in British Columbia.
So why do BC's biggest employers still default to Web 1.0 job sites like T-Net's BCTechnology.com when posting new job opportunities.
Along the same lines of the adage "nobody ever got fired for buying IBM equipment" — no Human Resources Manager in BC ever got fired for posting a job on BCTechnology.com.
T-Net's success shouldn't come as much of a surprise. After all, they have been the exclusive Job Board partner of the British Columbia Technology Industry Association (BCTIA) for 10+ years. Any job seeker or prospective employer visiting the BCTIA website and clicking on the Tech Careers link is sent directly to T-Net's site. Frustrating.
At Techvibes, we think it's time for a little disruption in the local Job Board space and we believe the social media tools built into our site will mean a little less post & pray for HR Managers. We call it Recruiting 2.0.
For the remainder of October, we're offering all BCTIA members 50% off our $100 job listing fee when they use the discount code 'BCTIA' online.
