Beyond the Postings – Finding Work in Oceanside

May 23 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 1:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until May 31, 2019

Eighty percent of jobs are not advertised. Learn the tools you need to successfully access this hidden job market. Gain an understanding of the local economy and find work faster.

If in your job search you are looking only at posted jobs, i.e. classifieds and internet, you are missing 80% of the available positions.  Not only that, you have a lot of competition as there will be many people applying for the same job as you!

In this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Identify sources of and research labour market information
  • Identify key aspects of the local labour market
  • Conduct a job search guided by current, relevant economic trends, statistics, opportunities and projects.

Beyond the Postings will give you tools to access the hidden job market and understand the local economy.


Here’s what workshop participants had to say…

“Excellent! Great facilitator and guest speaker.”

“My next step will be using the information learned in this workshop to help me find employment.”
