What Do Online Job Postings Reveal About the York Region & Bradford West Gwillimbury Labour Market?

The report analyzes this data and seeks to answer five questions:
1. How representative might the online job board data be of all local job openings?

3. How do the local job openings match the education profile of local residents?
4. What else does this data tell us about the job openings posted online?
