Words of wisdom:
"Remember your weekly mix of activity will vary, depending on how soon you need to be employed, how much time you have to spend on your campaign each week, the economy, the relative difficulty of job finding in your targeted field, and the relative effectiveness of each job search method with regards to your job objective. Good Luck!!!" [source: JobSearch-in-Canada.com]

It’s a paradox: high unemployment with serious labour shortages

Doug Saunders | Globe and Mail, Feb. 19, 2011

The above news headline offers a moment for reflection for all concerned about the real picture of Canadian job market. Is there then, a job saturation? If yes, does the labor market spell the sectors? If not, how does one justify the following:

  • "Looming shortage of ICT workers: study"

  • 'Unqualified' interpreters working in courts‎

  • CTV Toronto - New jobs created, but unemployment edges up

  • Nursing Shortage. What is it? How severe is it? How will it impact ...‎:

  • Hoping for a fulltime teaching job? Think again
    Oversupply of education graduates fueling teaching job shortage in Ontario

  • Canadian surgeons face flat-lining job market‎

  • Who will heal the nursing crisis?‎

  • Changing standards for training schools have created a flood of dental hygienists

    In another sense the paradox is multidimensional, there is resume flood, there is an endless preaching about trimming the resume, customizing, etc., etc., as in the following instances,

  • as depicted in this news story @ IT Business Edge: Companies Must Find Solution to Resume Overload.

  • there is a constant effort to trim the resume, as in these two news stories: LinkedIn’s top buzzwords list can help job hunters By Rafael Ruffolo, 14 Dec 2010 in ComputerWorld Canada; and
