I've been reading and recommending the content of the Interview Success newsletter for several years now for its practical applicability for those feeling overwhelmed about finding their way in navigating their career options and plain old just finding a job after years in the same one and then finding themselves having to re-enter the job market to try to find something 'new'.
I have been working with Government as an analyst for 5 years now, since I moved back home here to Ontario 5 years ago, leaving Northern Canada after having spent 5 years there and 17 years in B.C. prior to that. I started working for the Government here in Ontario as a Casual employee at 43 years old which meant constantly looking for work as Casuals can work only 90 business days per calendar in any one Department per calendar year. So for 3 & 1/2 years I worked between 3 different departments, rotating back when and where I could year after year. At year 3 & 1/2, I finally landed a 'term' position with sick days, paid holiday time and health benefits for a 2-year term. While I was a term, I landed an indeterminate (permanent), full-time position and 6 months after that, landed a full-time, permanent position in a place where my skills fit the work better and the team and culture of the work place suit me better as well.
I attribute a good amount of the job search and interviewing skills I've learned over the years to the content of the Interview Success Formula program material.
