What is a user account and should I create one to post jobs?

A user account is the first step to accessing Job Bank for Employers. The user account is your individual and password-protected account. It allows you to authenticate yourself when you sign in. 

Your user account is private. It contains personal and sensitive information such as your name, address, social insurance number (SIN) and your security questions and answers. You can only create it once, with a private email address that no one else uses, and keep your sign-in information confidential.

You must create your own user account before you can register an employer and post jobs. You must never create a user account for someone else – not even your boss or family members.

Once you have created your user account, you can register multiple employers based on your hiring needs, and manage them easily from your Dashboard. You can also add multiple users on an employer file, as long as they create their own Job Bank user account first.


Note: Your user account does not belong to the business you will be posting jobs for; it belongs to you. If you created your user account using a corporate business email, you can always replace it if you change jobs.


Tip: If you do not want to use your user account email on job postings as an application method, add an alternate business email in the employer file by clicking on "Add a new email" under the "Emails" tab.
