Talent Recruitment Services

While CEDIA hopes that you will find your dream employee through our Online Career Center, we understand that our platform may not work for everyone. Consequently, we want to make sure that you are aware of other talent recruitment avenues that exist.

Government Funded Services

Most countries provide some type of government funded services to jobseekers and employers.  While services vary from country to country, the following are the most common services provided to employers:

  • Employers
    • Job posting services
    • Individualized recruitment services
    • Networking events and job fairs
    • Financial incentives for hiring new workers and skilling up existing workers through on-the-job training and apprenticeship programs

Services are typically provided virtually and in-person at local offices:

Community Based Organizations

Networking with community organizations that have access to jobseekers can be an effective and no/low cost way to find new talent.


WorldSkills is a global association of national associations from 80 countries that help young people access training and employment in the skilled trades.  WorldSkills brings together and influences educators, industry, national governments, and international organizations.  National associations are made up of regional associations that have direct access to local educators and students.
