Navigating the Job Market

2010-03-19

Queen’s University experts have just published new books to help Canadians navigate the job market.
Career Cupid – Your Guide to Landing and Loving Your Dream JobChristine Fader’s new book Career Cupid uses the analogy that finding your dream job is a lot like finding your dream guy because, just like dating, career management is a process. It’s a process that most people have to go through. Like relationships, sometimes it’s fun, sometimes it’s awful, but a lot of the time, the whole thing is kind of a mystery that we do our best to navigate. 
Christine FaderEmail: clb@queensu.caChristine has worked as a Career Counsellor for students at Queen's University since 1998 and has developed and taught hundreds of customized career classes for undergraduate through to PhD students. 
 Not for Sale! Why We Need a New Job Search MindsetCathy Keates states that a sales approach to job search has created a world of insincere schmoozing, canned elevator pitches and “truthiness” in resumes. It’s time for a new mindset built not on packaging people as products, but on authenticity, dignity and integrity. As more and more people are out looking for work, getting good advice about how to find a new job becomes more and more important. Cathy KeatesEmail: 8ck@queensu.caCathy is a career counsellor at Queen’s and has 10 years experience in planning people’s careers and job searches. She regularly presents at national career conferences about new approaches to networking and providing job search advice.
