FINDING JOBS & EMPLOYERS: Canada

With unemployment at its highest point since the Great Depression, the need for career and job placement information within the community has vastly increased.  With this, comes a need for more resources; such as  Hineni Media Online Career Library.  I will try to offer you advice on other certain types of jobs or industries you can look into, and I’ll also try to answer any general questions you have on work-at-home offers you come across

Hineni Media Database  includes essential Canadian  industry information synthesized with specific, insider company reports which are of particular interest to students and professionals, normally available only by individual subscription. Hineni  empowers users with fresh, relevant knowledge about Canadian companies, careers and schools and provides the coherent context needed to identify valuable job and educational opportunities.

How  in Canada  can you  find job opportunities?

Networking:  Not for the shy or undermotivated. You need good interpersonal skills. It’s the number one method by which many graduates,undergraduate and university wide job seekers,  had found a job.

Advertised jobs

On-Campus Interviewing Programs,Online and print listings,  Career-field-focused job listing web sites, Career fairs / job fairs:
Lets employers find you. You apply for jobs that interest you but not every industry or type of job represented, on certain listings You need patience to navigate and read listings. As for the career fairs you need to make a good impression in person and look prepared. Do research as who will be in the fair in advance as you won’t be necessarily learning about every opportunity in each organization — you will be learning where the major hiring needs are.
Unadvertised jobs

Online databases, listings, career libraries:
Research sources that help you find potential employers. Very helpful if you are focusing on a particular industry. If you have no clue what type of industries you could work in, you’ll need to research and think about this. Because you’ll need to know the type of organizations with whom you could, or want to, work.
They can be helpful to find contacts for a geographically targeted job search. Specialty sites fill that niche.

A critical mistake many job-seekers make is not bothering to research potential employers, which is bad for several reasons. First, you should always research companies to help you decide if you even want to work at any of them; fit is such an important aspect of job enjoyment. Second, having information about the company can help you better prepare for the interview; the more you know about a company, the better you’ll understand all aspects of its operations. Third, you need to conduct some research on each company because you should expect the inevitable question from the interviewer: “What do you know about our company?” Sometimes it might be phrased as: “Why do you want to work for us?”

All job-seekers need to conduct research and develop critical information about each company — its products and services; key executives; new products, plants, or divisions; company culture; organizational structure; diversity and values; benefits; career paths; etc.

What’s the best source of company information? The company’s Website, of course! It’s absolutely amazing what you can find published on company Websites.

 Work-at-home jobs:
“Are there any legitimate work-at-home jobs for your field? if you are a registered nurse. Please investigated several advertisements. Some sites want money up front just to tell you where to look for a job. I would be very interested in any information or links that would assist me.  If you  have a background in management, med surgery, hospice and acute care. At this time, you coud  drive 40 km round-trip.”

OK, I can’t say this enough: Do not pay money up front to get a job. This is not how it works in the real world of employment. Requests for any money or personal information in e-mails or over the phone are scams, 99.9 percent of the time.
With a health care background, he says, she could get work answering medical questions from home via health help lines. Some insurance companies and nonprofits have these types of call centers, he says, including  Eli Lilly Canada Inc, Novopharm Limited, Bayer Inc’s Informed Health Line, the March of Dimes and the Arthritis Foundation.
In addition, a registered nurse could also look into coordinating home health care services, managing recruitment of nurses for medical facilities, writing training materials and protocols or developing safety compliance protocols.
The key is paring your expertise and skills with jobs that can be done from a home base, and then actively going out and finding companies that could be a fit. Please don’t wait for offers to show up in your e-mail box.

With the Hineni Database  members will possess all the tools necessary to prepare them for career success in Canada.  Additionally, the library will be provided with a one-stop shop for your career content.  Check out the demo link!
