Surviving the Downturn was created to show Albertans (especially those who haven’t searched for a job in a few years) what the flood of job seekers are doing wrong, what hiring managers want, and how to market yourself to employers to give you a competitive edge to survive the downturn.
I have received several job offers since working with Dave on my LinkedIn job search and accepting a new job (in fact I received another offer yesterday). Dave helped me make my profile more attractive to recruiters and shared techniques with me to successfully gain more connections, particularly with decision makers. I recommend working with him...

Dave spoke to members at one of the Central Library's Strategic Networking for Job Seekers sessions. His insights about the power of LinkedIn in helping the attendees maximize their potential and about how to set up their profiles was invaluable and very helpful. I consider myself quite a proficient LinkedIn user so to have Dave mention things that I never considered or tried was really inspiring. I can't recommend him enough.
