I applied for a job listed by these guys for another company. They barely read my resume and ignored every email I sent them, opting to call me and leave phone messages that mirrored their email messages instead. It was all very automated and I could tell that they were just trying to get people interviews to look good for their client, regardless of qualifications.

Anyway, over the phone I was told I definitely had the experience that made me eligible for a job they essentially advertised as entry-level, training on the job, production work. After travelling a very long way for this interview, I was told by their client that I did not have any of the qualifications required for this job and they were not sure why I had even applied. This was all down to Career Contacts failing to include any important details on their listing or asking the right questions over the phone.


Do not use these guys as your recruitment company; they just want your business, not to get you work.

I moved to Vancouver not long ago with a 2-year work visa. I didn't know where to begin with the job search but was able to quickly find work with the help of Career Contacts. They had a lot of different roles available and were extremely helpful in helping me with the job search. They helped me coordinate an interview with one of their Downtown clients and even helped prepare me for the interview. I am so happy in my new role and I can't thank them enough for helping me in the job search. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone looking for work!

After meeting with the Recruiters I was given information about several companies that were hiring. After a few interview I accepted a job and have been working with this company over a year.

Thank you Career Contacts!

they were really great at determining what skills I had that worked for their clients. They have a diverse client base and treat their candidates well - even when they don't have work for them.

They always call me for relevant jobs with good salaries and always fight for me if I need a bit more.

They have temp jobs and full time jobs so it's a good mix.


Definitely recommend!

Working with the team at Career Contacts has been easy, and smooth, in finding temporary workers for any special projects we have. I've had nothing but good experiences from all the office staff. They are friendly and helpful. The workers they provide are great, and hard working.
I would highly recommend this agency to anyone looking for workers for placement.

I have 3 years working for Career Contacts.Me and my girlfriend are working here. Very helpful people and flexible shifts. At the time when I have done the interview my English was not so perfect and they gave me the opportunity to work in the same job I was doing back home. Thank you

Have dealt with Career Contacts for approx. 12 years as a temp worker, client and eventually direct employee.

They offer a good selection of permanent and temporary positions, as well as, more personalized service than the larger competition. Reasonable wages for the positions held.


The office has a good atmosphere and is centrally located. Company social gatherings are great (lunches, open houses, etc).

Career Contacts is a great company! As a new arrival to Canada I was able to go in and learn about the options available to me, get tips on interview practices, and ultimately land a job that I love! I highly recommend for all new arrivals and those looking for a change!

Good work for someone trying to get into the construction field. Not very reliable for consistent work. Management is very friendly and you meet a lot of awesome people on site.

I did not find this company to be very professional. They compare quite poorly to some of the other recruitment companies in Vancouver. Don't expect them to spend much time with you or take too much care with anything.
