Tips and technical guidelines

Posting a profile/resume & setting up alerts

  • When submitting your profile, you can save time by using the "upload your resume" feature to automatically populate key information into the profile fields.
  • It's also a great idea to set up email alerts that notify you of new opportunities that align with your skills and interests.
  • It is strongly recommended that you unlock your profile. It will allow BC Hydro's recruitment partners to view your resume when they conduct candidate searches so that they can invite you to apply for opportunities.
  • Don't forget to update your profile – at any time – with relevant experience, contact information and other updates.

Searching for a position

  • To view all job postings in the Careers Centre, do not fill out any keyword or search criteria on the job search screen. Simply select the "Start" button and you'll get the complete list of current opportunities.
  • You can also get a list of all job postings on our Current Opportunities page.
  • For more detailed searches by keyword and other criteria, it's helpful to select the "At least one search criterion must be filled' option under Search Method near the bottom of the job search screen. That will increase your chances of getting search matches on your initial search. To narrow your search, you can then switch to the "All search criterion must be filled" option under Search Method.
  • If, at any time, your search produces a "The table does not contain any data" message, please revise your search criteria and/or search method.

Applying for a position

  • Once you've used the job search tool in our Careers Centre to find a position you wish to apply for, select that position and hit the "Apply" button. Then follow the directions in the application tool.
