Feeling Hopeless in Halton Hills

By ADMIN - September 22 2020

2020 has been my worst year yet! I am a recent college graduate with a degree in English and was hoping to go on to do a Masters degree. I have not been able to find work to save money towards going back to University.


Not Into Nursing

By ADMIN - January 9 2020

I have been hearing a lot on the news about the aging population. I know about all the opportunities that are going to come about in healthcare but have a deep fear of anything to do with blood. As a twenty something trying to make a decision about where to focus my future...

Dear Elcee, I want to go back to school but I don’t know what to study. I am 44 years old and I was recently laid off from my job in manufacturing, all those jobs are leaving or have already left Canada.

I am a second year college student and will be returning in September for my final year. I have to get my act in gear and look for summer employment. When is the best time to start looking for work.  Any tips or hints for me? Summer Suzie


Lucy in Leslieville

By ANDREW OLIVER - January 17 2019

After 25 years at the same job I have just joined the ranks of the unemployed! I have a great resume prepared, good references and am enthusiastic about taking on new challenges. I thought I had all my bases covered but I keep being told I should have a social media “presence”. What the heck are they talking about?  I have a Facebook account but how does one job search on that? Lucy in Leslieville
