Find Labourer

Hi ...

I have just started working with a employment agency who is dealing with general helper and general labourer .  now the problem is ... how to build employee database .

I have job boards like indeed.ca , kajiji.ca .. but then again .. general labourer or helpers mostly don't visit to these sites .. and also these sites are heavily charging about posting job adds .

is that can be a cheaper way to find people and if yes , what can be those avenues .

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, you are right Mobile apps will allow job seekers to search discreetly for positions -- anytime, anywhere -- and respond to postings quickly.

I'm not aware of many mobile recruiter apps but LunchMeet

This is a great tool for many people: talent hunters, job seekers, career development professionals, entrepreneurs, people who seek free consultation over lunch/drinks, people who offer free consultation over lunch/drinks, business school students, business development/sales/marketing people, and anyone who is interested in strengthening and expanding their professional network.

As par of your development/strategy you can come of with a good mobile apps that will connect some if not all social media.
