Why can't I write my own job description?

In order to offer free, fast and bilingual services to clients, Job Bank does not allow you to use free text. Pre-defined options ensure that job postings are advertised within the shortest time possible since all available options are pre-translated.

If you cannot find a particular job title, skill or requirement, there are other options available.

  • You can use the “Additional job requirements”. This feature will allow you to lookup various job requirements associated with other occupations (e.g. skills, credentials, work location information, etc.).
  • You can send us your suggestions. You will find a box below some sections when creating a job posting, where you can suggest new options. Your suggestions will not appear on your job posting right away but may be available in the future.
  • You can include a link to an external website to provide more information about the position. Any website link you include will be reviewed by a Job Bank officer before advertising your job posting.
