Description

Are you wasting your time and money making less than you're worth?

This is a seminar that will give you an overview of the tips and strategies you need to market your skills and experience to BC employers. Bring your job search questions and bring your resume!

My name is Winnie Furber, and I am an employment counselor with over 10 years' experience helping professionals get their careers back on track. I know what it's like to struggle to find a job, and I know what to do to succeed at it. I emigrated to a country where I didn't know the language, didn't have my credentials recognized, and didn't have the right experience. When I came back to Canada, I had to start from scratch. Within a month I was working at the most prestigious employment agency in Vancouver.

I specialize in helping professionals who are used to making a high income and having employers seek them out, but who have found themselves in uncharted territory searching for work. They are not used to marketing themselves and are in jeopardy of losing their confidence - and that is a career-killer. I have a tried and true job search system that will help you get your career back on track.

Are you struggling to find work in your career and considering taking a job just to be able to stop searching? There's a high price to pay for working a low-paid job!

Mary arrived to Canada as a high end technical sales representative with 15 years of experience and a Masters in Chemical Processes. Like many immigrant professionals, she was told she would need to take a customer service job to gain Canadian experience.

When I met Mary she was deflated and frustrated. She had come to Canada as a highly skilled migrant, but was not able to put her skills to use. She came to me asking for help putting together a customer service resume - I refused to help her write a resume for that kind of job. Instead, we worked together on strategies and techniques for career success. A few months later Mary was offered a job in her field with a salary range of $80,000 to $90,000 plus commission and other benefits.

If Mary had taken a customer service job for even a couple of years before going after a job worthy of her, she wouldn't have just been wasting her time.

She would have lost out on $160,000 - $200,000 had she waited only two years.

Working retail will not advance your profession. A professional job search that targets the hidden job market will.


You need to create a plan and work it, and you need to understand the Canadian employment culture – know what employers are looking for and how to stand out.
