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]

Temporary Jobs Are Canada's Future: The new normal

Temporary Jobs Are Canada's Future: Report.
Sunny Freeman @ huffingtonpost.com

"A pronounced shift toward temporary gigs and unstable positions could become the new normal for this generation as demand for short-term workers rises across the country, according to one of the country’s biggest employment firms...
 Temporary blue collar jobs are in high demand, with a 40-per-cent increase from just the first quarter of this year to the second quarter, the analysis found.
The allure of temporary work is strong for employers who aren’t obligated to provide pension plans, benefits or vacation days. And in a job market where supply is plentiful --- the unemployment rate climbed to 7.1 per cent in June -- employers can be picky about hiring conditions and still fill jobs.
