Edmonton's job posting site divides openings into external, internal and student job opportunities. However, many jobs are available to all applicants. Each job posting includes a full job description, education and experience requirements, and pay range based on a standard 35-hour workweek.

With a population of over 850,000, Edmonton is the second-largest city in Alberta and has a need for workers in industries that provide services to urban dwellers. The city hires salaried administrative and business professionals to handle tasks such as tax collection, support to police and fire fighters, construction project management and data processing. Edmonton also hires hourly workers to operate heavy equipment, such as garbage trucks and city buses; to perform skilled trade work, such as electric or plumbing; or to fill seasonal positions, such as landscaping.

Potential applicants can sign up for job alerts. The electronic application system allows applicants to use a LinkedIn profile instead of a resume. The system also simplifies the application process by allowing mobile users to submit resumes stored on cloud-based services such as Google Drive or Dropbox.
