Looking through job postings can be a time-consuming task, especially as there are many unadvertised positions that are in the hidden job market. Come and join us in this valuable workshop by an experienced and knowledgeable Career Facilitator from ISSofBC for tips on how to go beyond the job postings you find on your own. You will learn how to prepare a contacts list and use effective networking stategies to access the wider job market. This workshop is free but space is limited. Please visit or call McGill Branch at 604-299-8955 to register. You can also register online.
