When a company posts a job offer, it’s seeking to fill a position right away.
A career opportunity is a job that may eventually need to be filled at a company. It isn’t a position that needs to be filled immediately but, who knows, maybe it will be tomorrow!
Tip: When you apply for a career opportunity, as well as showing your interest in the company and a specific position, your résumé is automatically added to the company’s bank of candidates. If an employee resigns or is dismissed, the company will be able to look at your profile and résumé before even posting a job offer for the vacant position. It’s simple: you’ve doubled your chances of finding the kind of job you’ve wanted for a while.
