Book

No Canadian Experience, Eh?

Written primarily for newcomers to Canada, or those contemplating coming, it contains career coaching strategies and techniques for anyone trying to understand what it takes to succeed in today’s competitive job market.

Excerpts from a letter from the former Minister of Citizenship & Immigration:

"The book is an excellent resource tool...It covers everything from how to write a resume, to job interviews, to Canadian workplace culture and the very real personal stories of newcomers...thank you for a well-researched and comprehensive guide." 

Summary

"If you don't go after what you want, you will never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place"  -- Nora Roberts

WHAT IF...

  • Your resume is not getting you interviews
  • Your interviews are not landing you the job you deserve
  • You are hurting from ineffective job search strategies
  • You keep wondering why you are being passed over for a promotion
  • There's a career move you want to make, but something keeps holding you back...

What would you do? Continue doing more of the same and expecting different results? I don't think so! You would want to connect with a career coach who has 'walked in your shoe'!

I am Daisy Wright, the Career Results Coach at The Wright Career Solution and my purpose is to motivate and empower every client to achieve success. There are no two ways about it. If you have a goal and are committed, I can help you achieve it. A few words of caution...My positive "can-do" attitude is contagious, so beware!
