Sadly, this is a real good-bye as it’s the end of the year and it’s also the end of poss.ca.

You’re in a building. You enter the elevator and there she/he is — the man or the woman of your dreams! No, not the love interest that you might spend the rest of your life with but the boss you’ve always dreamt of.

Are you one of those job seekers who blindly, passively (perhaps desperately) applies to everything on Workopolis, hoping that the gods of employment will smile on you, subliminally guiding you to the job posting of your dreams?

The history of the term “pink slip” is rather muddy, actually.

There’s no doubt that becoming a firefighter is one of the most common childhood dreams. After all, where else do you get to ride a big red truck with sirens blasting, with all the little cars scurrying around to make way for you?

60 seconds to a job

January 2, 2014

You’re in a building. You enter the elevator and there she/he is — the man or the woman of your dreams! No, not the love interest that you might spend the rest of your life with but the boss you’ve always dreamt of.

How to not be a doormat

January 2, 2014

I’m an owner of a bicycle that is too big for me, an ugly fur vest I didn’t mean to buy, a pair of clunky, expensive earrings that I also bought and never wore. I was once an orange blonde because a hairstylist thought it was a good idea to bleach my naturally dark hair.

This is not a real job posting because we are going to hire someone else anyway

December 31, 2013

Let’s begin with this: “TIFF is an equal opportunity employer.”

Not really, no it isn’t. In fact, you can be almost sure of it not being one since it says in a recent posting “lead candidate identified.”

Is this a thing now?

Think about working for the City

December 20, 2013

Several months ago at the City of Toronto’s career information fair I felt a distinct buzz in the air (in my opinion, a rarity at an event like this). Job seekers squashed into an auditorium at the Toronto Reference Library learning how to apply for City jobs.

Always had one of the worst jobs, ever
