Resume database

We collaborate with our neighbouring municipality, the City of Belleville, to link local employers with willing and able employees by collecting and categorizing resumes according to skill sets and place them in the resume database. A growing number of local employers use this database to find the skilled employees they need. Submitting a resume is easy and is a perfect first stop on the path to finding your ideal job. Employers are encouraged to contact us at economicdevelopment@quintewest.ca to access our resumes. 

The Quinte Career Fair, held every spring and fall, brings job seekers together with local employers and training providers, offering job search, resume writing and skills upgrading. 

The City of Quinte West economic development and tourism services division is here to help you with all your business, investment and employment needs. Please contact us today.
