Your Own Recruiter – Imagine the Possibilities!

Posted on: June 14, 2010

Over the past several months I’ve been working one-on-one with individuals who are currently in-between successes.   Several are new Canadians who need help finding their way through the “job search maze”.    Believe me, I have first hand experience overcoming these barriers, after all it was not long ago I found myself in a similar situation.   Think about it – I’m a Senior Recruiter with extensive experience and yet found it challenging to knock down barriers and open doors; so I know the frustrations felt and encountered by the new Canadian.    Actually, this is one of the reasons I developed the “Optimize Your Resume and the Interview Experience” – I combine my experience as a recruiter with my experience looking for a job as an international trained professional.

If you are in-between successes and looking for a fresh approach to the job search or you are new to Canada needing to start a job search, please contact me to see how I might be able to help –

In closing,  I would like to share an email I just received – sums it up nicely!

“As a relatively new Canadian, I recognized early that it was important to connect with people who could help me find an opportunity to work within my expertise.

 I was referred to Lee Koren by my mentor through Sheridan College, and the Mentoring Partnership.

Lee Koren is a Sr. Recruiter who has not only gone over my resume and my cover letter; she has provided me with insight into how to link my competencies to a specific job.

 She has also provided guidance on the structure and content of my resume. I’ve already got interest from a potential employer, based on her helpful and easy instruction on making my resume system friendly. I’m now LinkedIn and ready to maximize my career opportunities.”

 Thank you so much Lee.
