Surviving The Downturn In Alberta
We can only guess how long the downturn will last, but “waiting it out” is no longer an option. There are jobs out there, but competition is fiercer than ever before. You need to give yourself an advantage over the competition.
Job boards and online postings only accounted for one in four hires in Calgary last year. So why do so many job seekers completely focus their job search on this one method?
They are listening to outdated or just plain wrong advice.
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.
