Member Testimonials

“I had always wanted a career association that was “distinctly Canadian” so when I was asked to be a founding member of Career Professionals of Canada I jumped at the opportunity. CPC offers leadership and volunteer opportunities and a chance for members to learn from the collective expertise that exists in the group. Members are also encouraged to submit their work for publication or contribute articles or comments for the media.  These exposures lend additional credibility to the organization and its members. I am pleased to be associated with this dynamic Canadian organization.”

Daisy Wright, The Wright Career Solution

“I have increased my business by using the Career Professionals of Canada’s logo in my marketing material. I find that it helps to close a sale to let prospects know that I am a member.”

Karen Shane, The Business Writing Network

 “I thoroughly enjoy being a part of a dynamic, talented, and collaborative virtual team.  I am so impressed with the expertise and I've learned so much from both the people and the activities we've engaged in.  I especially appreciated facilitating teleclasses – something new for me – and volunteering at The National Job Fair and Training Expo.”

Heather Erskine, Erskine & Associates

“Certainly, my membership over one short year has done amazing things for me and my practice. I have led two committees and obtained my Certified Resume Strategist and Certified Interview Strategist Credentials. I have spoken at three conferences and have been able to contribute to articles in The Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star, and The Sun. Through Career Professionals of Canada, I have developed great friendships, professional relationships, and a sense of peer support/family, which is important to me in my private practice. In all the years that I have been a member of other organizations, I have never gained so much!”

Linda Schnabel, Career Works

 “As a member of Career Professionals of Canada, I have attended the annual Professional Development Conference to learn and network. This has increased my business through referrals and subcontracting relationships. I have also shared and gained information by networking with colleagues in the e-Group, capitalizing on the fact that other members offer a Canadian – and oftentimes local perspective when I seek advice or help.”

Marian Bernard, The Regency Group

"Being a member of the Career Professionals of Canada has really raised my business profile as well as connecting me with a whole new group of experienced, professional associates that I can call on for advice and potential partnerships. Since being a member and directly as a result of CPC's connections I have spoken at a major job fair and been profiled in The Globe & Mail and Toronto Sun, this coverage has led directly to other engagements and new clients as well as increased my credibility. For the career professional in Canada there is not another organization that can offer its members so much benefit."

Paul Copcutt, Square Peg Solution

"For Sharon, success is not measured by dollar figures. Her drive is to identify and address issues that are meaningful to Canadians in the labour market. A genuine philanthropist, she created Career Professionals of Canada - not as a typical non-profit entity, but as an expression of "giving back" to the industry." Nomination Team, Stu Conger Award
