As I reported in a previous post, Sault Ste. Marie's unemployment rate is still high, and jobs are hard to find. So many people have left this city for bigger communities such as Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Toronto, or Ottawa. It's terribly unfortunate that no businesses are drawn to a market of close to 80,000 people, but we have to make do with what we have now. Getting hired is a rather difficult task.
Even with a distinguished resume like mine (Blogger, Production Assistant, Shelf-stocker,) people expect fancy pieces of paper in the form of college degrees or university diplomas before they even consider the idea of hiring you. So sad. Anyway, here are my 5 tips:
That number alone just goes to show how absolutely horrible our employment market is in the Sault. Being the PERFECT candidate isn't easy in this town like it is in bigger cities. But if you follow my steps, it's less unlikely that you'll find employment.
