Words of wisdom:

Gloomier future seen for Canadian immigration, Toronto Star

With 35 per cent of male newcomers returning home and a growing middle class in developing countries less inclined to migrate, an internal government review is calling the future of Canadian immigration into question.
“There has been a rather negative view of these expatriate Canadians, as they have been regarded as evidence of ‘brain drain,’ Canada’s lack of competitiveness in retaining high-skilled professionals and business leaders, and our insufficient success in integrating new arrivals,” the report noted. “Canada could choose to take a more proactive stance with expatriates.” continue reading

Best Practices in Today's Resume: Two Sides of the Coin

One  side:
Who cares about resumes anyway? Think about it. Scott Thompson has a degree in accounting, not computer science. But, does it really matter what he studied as an undergraduate? He’s 54 years old, has been CEO of Paypal, and before that held high positions at Inovant, a subsidiary of Visa, and Barclay Global Investors. Clearly, he is qualified to run Yahoo.
