Career Marketplace is a public service-wide Internet forum, created within GCconnex and GCcollab, enabling employees to network professionally across departments.

Career Marketplace is intended for at-level mobility (e.g. indeterminate and term deployments, secondments, and assignments), micro-mission opportunities as well as a reference page to other sources of talent that managers and HR professionals may wish to explore, including active pools from other departments. Career Marketplace can also be used as a tool to facilitate alternations during workforce adjustment situations.

Career Marketplace facilitates people management by improving access for managers to inventories of motivated employees ready and willing to take on new challenges. It also enables employee engagement, discussion and learning, both through the potential opportunities that Career Marketplace offers, and through the use of the tool itself.

The Career Marketplace has an automated matching tool. This is a tool that quickly matches at-level mobility (i.e. micro-missions and job swapping) and development (i.e. mentoring and job shadowing) opportunities with talented employees by leveraging the content in employees’ GCconnex or GCcollab profiles. Employees are encouraged to “opt in” to the professional development and at-level mobility opportunities at the bottom of their profiles to take full advantage of this tool.

Career Marketplace is being enhanced to make it a one-stop shop for managers and employees to navigate new features for public service staffing, resourcing and development. Check Career Marketplace regularly to take advantage of the new features and information!
