What is "Direct apply" and how do I submit my application using this feature on Job Bank?

"Direct apply" is a feature that lets you submit your application directly on Job Bank, on job postings where the option is available as an application method. You can choose to send your own uploaded resume or one created with the Resume Builder.     

In order to use the "Direct apply" functionality on Job Bank, you must first set up your account by completing these steps:

Step 1 - Create a job seeker Plus account (or upgrade your Standard account).

Step 2 - Complete your job seeker profile.

Step 3 - Create a resume using the Resume Builder or upload your own resume.

Step 4 - Make sure that the employer accepts direct applications on Job Bank.


Once you have set up your job seeker account, simply follow these steps to apply directly through Job Bank:   

    1. Sign into your job seeker Plus account, and start your job search. 
    2. Open the job posting that interests you, and click on "Show how to apply".
    3. Choose the resume you want to send, from the drop down menu, below "By applying directly on Job Bank".
    4. Check the "I agree to share my resume and all the information it includes directly with this employer." box.
    5. Click on "Apply on Job Bank".
