There is always a different approach that one may take when coping with the 'JOB SEARCHING' process. It may feel frustrating at times, for the average job seeker who was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; yet he/she struggles to become hired immediately after having completed his/her post-secondary education. The economy is merely a 'contributing factor'. There are other factors to be considered.
How does one cope with the job market today?
What types jobs are available? How does one find those jobs that are not yet advertised?
Recommendations have been made by Employment Coaches worldwide. One may use the primitive strategy such as 'word-of-mouth' (essentially telling others that one is available for work and hoping that others will share insight if jobs are known and available). Employers launch 'JOB FAIRS' to invite 'JOB SEEKERS' to have a one-on-one interview. It is important to present oneself in the utmost marketable manner, in order to be chosen above the rest.
'JOB NETWORKING' is another approach that is very successful.
It is easier to attend social gatherings at which business presentations are included in the itinerary of events.
One can be prepared to bring information about one's profile to be shared with the C.E.O. or President of the company that is presenting ideas to the audience. It is highly suggested that one be open-minded to having interactive discussions with others; while mentioning one's eagerness to make a 'career change' or to 'find work'.
Several 'JOB GROUPS' are posted online which are designed to help newcomers to Canada, in addition to residents and citizens who are seeking a second career.
Many of these options are FREE to the PUBLIC and they've become very useful resources for all.
