Behind the Scenes: AMA Toronto’s New Career Centre  

AMA Toronto’s brand purpose is to help marketers develop their leadership potential. Whether it’s through our two mentorship programs, our volunteer experiences or other programs, we have built a community of talented marketers. Many of these marketers are looking for their next career opportunity where they can put their potential to work or to recruit the leadership talent who can bring greater value to their organization. Our new Career Centre is intended to match high potential marketers with marketing career opportunities. 

This is not “just another job board”. AMA Toronto’s Career Centre removes some of the inefficiencies of marketer recruitment from multi-purpose platforms such as Indeed or LinkedIn. Our job seekers are all marketers and our employers only post marketing positions. This simplifies the screening process, saves time and reduces recruitment costs. Another financial benefit is that AMA members and potentially our sponsors and partners can receive additional financial incentives. It’s a welcome new service for both job seekers and companies looking to hire marketing talent:
