WORKSHOP: Networking Strategy for Job Seekers – August 20, 2014 – Ottawa, ON

NetworkingWayne Pagani (W.P. Consulting & Associates) and Kevin Schafer (Cardinal Career Management Services) are teaming up to facilitate a Networking Strategy Workshop for Job Seekers, August 20, 2014 at 6:00pm, downtown Ottawa. (PDF flyer)


Career professionals have noticed, and widely agree, that the vast majority of current job opportunities are found in the “hidden job market”. Most people do NOT find their jobs through postings but rather through their personal and professional networks. Furthermore, thanks to the internet and job boards, the jobs that are posted are often bombarded with applications, making it increasingly difficult for your application to be recognized amongst hundreds, if not thousands of others. Connecting with the decision makers in one’s field of interest is far more effective than sitting at home applying to job boards. We will show you how to create an effective networking strategy.

This is the first in a series of workshops designed to equip people for career transition in the Canadian Labour Market.
