Toronto, ON Canada (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
OSPE, the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers have called on Paul Hill, the best selling author of The Panic Free Job Search book, to present a special workshop to its members in Toronto. The lead trainer of The Ultimate Job Search Boot Camp will provide hands-on help to members and new members in assisting them in their job search.
“Job search has changed so much over the last few years. Most engineers are still stuck in the digital job search sending out resumes to job postings. That is great if you are gambler,” said Paul Hill. “I don’t recommend gambling with one’s career by firing off a load of resumes. If you want to get hired in a job that results in a long tenure, you need to know how to gather information through social networking sites and how to approach the real decision makers, those who have the authority to hire you. That is how you tap into the real hidden job market.”
“I have seen Paul Hill live and this is a must attend event. He is a trainer and speaker who is passionate, high energy and extremely entertaining and offers such great innovative information,” said Alwyn de Melo, an OSPE Member.
For the long term unemployed, over reliance on resumes is what keeps the engineers unemployed. “Paul Hill shows professionals how to lead with themselves, how to communicate what they can do for an employer, not simply relying on what they have done in the past and he provides them with the most innovative tactics I have ever seen,” said Jim Geraghty, CEO of the Happen Inc. “His results through his Ultimate Job Search Boot Camp are simply phenomenal and he provides step by step training and support on how not to lead with one’s resume rather how to present a compelling message that gets people hired.”
Participants will learn how to get the inside track on advertised and unadvertised positions through a referral and shorten the hiring cycle as well as guarantee a longer tenure once hired. More and more employers are using LinkedIn to research and recruit candidates directly as well as research applicants who respond to job postings by viewing their profiles on LinkedIn. Implementing LinkedIn best practices is critical to a successful job search today. Knowing how to mine data off of LinkedIn by using Google and Yahoo to scrape LinkedIn for key contacts is the first step to guaranteeing one’s income stream. Hill will share proven tactics that will bolster traditional job search efforts and help participants find their next gratifying position more quickly.
“Kick-Start Your Job Search and Get More Interviews” is targeted to employed engineers seeking a promotion, unemployed engineers seeking a gratifying new position, foreign trained engineers new to Canada and new engineering graduates, engineers in training EITs seeking a new job or a better position and underemployed senior engineers.
“I guarantee that unemployed, underemployed, those new to Canada or new graduates will all benefit greatly from this hands-on workshop,” said Hill, Chief Instructor and President of Transition to Hired.
KickStart Your Job Search and Get More Interviews, is on December 12, 2013, at 7:00 PM to 10 PM at the Living Art Centre, 4141 Living Arts Drive, Mississauga, Ontario L5B 4B8, for more information Contact: John Moudakis (416-223-9961 x 236).
