I'm having issues with the online application, is there another way to apply?
Unfortunately, no. Due to the high volume of applications received, this is the only way our recruiters can receive your application. Our recruiters rely on our online system to review and short-list from the applications in our centralized database. You’re only part of this database if you apply online.

Here are some troubleshooting options if you’re experiencing technical issues.

Browser settings

Your internet browser settings can have an impact on your ability to complete the application process. Often, it is a firewall or privacy setting that prevents the site from loading properly. It is recommended that you follow the instructions in the browser settings guide to eliminate any browser-related technical issues.

Trouble uploading your resume

Your resume needs to be a Microsoft Word document, with a standard font (text-only). Some PDF formats are accepted. We are unable to accept resumes with graphics, tables, scanned images at this time.

If you have difficult uploading a PDF format resume, please try uploading a MS Word format of your resume. Alternatively, you can upload it as an additional document.  From the login page you can go to the “Update Info” tab and select the link to ‘Upload Documents.’

Cannot remember your password

You can reset your password. Click “Forgot My Password” and follow the instructions.

Can’t attach additional documents (such as a cover letter, certifications, etc.)

There is no requirement for you to include additional documents. We’ll request any required documentation at the interview stage. If you’d like to submit a cover letter, please include it as part of your resume and submit it as one document.
I have forgotten my password, how do I reset it?
You can reset your password directly from the login page. Simply click on the 'Forgot Your Password' link and follow the instructions. You will be required to provide the email address that is registered on our site and we will email you a temporary password to the same email address.

Once you login with the temporary password, you can update your password to one that you will remember in the future. Go to the 'Update Info' tab to change your password.
What if I'm experiencing technical issues while applying online?
Your internet browser settings can have an impact on your ability to complete the application process. Often, it is a firewall or privacy setting that prevents the site from loading properly. It is recommended that you follow the instructions in the browser settings guide to eliminate any browser-related technical issues.
How do I edit/remove job alerts from my profile?
Login to your job alert profile and follow the 'Edit/Remove Job Alert' link to make changes to your job search criteria. To make changes, select or de-select your choices from the list(s). To discontinue job alerts, you have to de-select all items that you previously selected.

To save your changes, click on the 'Submit' link.
How long do I have to wait after I have applied?
The wait times can vary based on the volume of applications we receive, but we generally follow up with applicants we are considering further within two to three weeks.

If you’ve applied for a “future opportunity” position, we will only review your resume when a position becomes available. We’ll then contact you if you’re selected for further consideration.
I have applied online, what's next?
You’ll get an automated email message acknowledging receipt of your resume submission. If you’re chosen for further consideration, our recruiting team will get in touch within two to three weeks.

We review each application, but due to the high number of applications we receive, we only contact candidates who are being further considered. We will keep your resume in our database for a minimum of 12 months and will consider you for similar opportunities that become available.
I have applied online, why have I not received a call back?
Unfortunately, we can’t contact everyone who applies due to the volume of qualified applications we receive. Our recruitment team will review your resume against the job requirements, as well as other applicants, and then contact those who are the best match for the job.
What is the status of my application?
Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we cannot provide individual application updates. However, you can confirm whether your application was successfully submitted by logging into your profile and clicking “Application History” under Update Info.
How do I update my profile/resume?
Visit the log-in page and enter your email address and password. Once logged in, go to the 'Update Info' page to view or update your personal information and/or resume.
I want more information about apprenticeship programs and processes or requirements for a specific trade. Can I speak to somebody at Ledcor?
If you’d like information about apprenticeships or want to learn about training requirements for a skilled trade, we request that you consult with your provincial apprenticeship regulatory body or start your research online at www.CareersInTrades.ca. Ledcor is not able to advise you on the apprenticeship process or requirements for a trade, however all our apprentice and skilled trades' positions, when available, are posted on our Careers site.
I cannot find a job that I am interested in. Can I submit a generic application?
If you do not find a current job opening that you are interested in, you can set up a “job alert” in your profile, which will send you an email alert if a position related to your interests is posted. Just be sure to set your job preferences (such as job type, category, location, etc.) within your profile. This can be done by clicking on “Update Info” after logging into your profile.
I live outside of Canada/US; can I apply to jobs with Ledcor?
Yes, we will consider all qualified applications. For certain positions we will provide assistance with work permit/visa and immigration. Please ensure that you communicate your intentions to move in your cover letter or resume. Only short-listed applicants will be contacted.
If I want to apply to more than one job, do I need to submit a resume every time?
You are required to apply to every position that you’re interested in; however your resume will automatically be saved when you create a profile the first time you apply with Ledcor. When applying to another position, you have the option to update your resume or replace it with a new one.
