Getting Canadians back to work: Skills to Achieve an insider's solution
(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 06, 2010 ) Alberta, Canada - CALGARY Albert Einstein once said the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.
Well, Corey Harlock has heard all the horror stories of career change in an uncertain economy, about job seekers sending out hundreds of resumes without a single response. And the Calgary-based professional recruitment expert has done something about it.
Harlock has developed the Skills to Achieve program, which helps candidates take charge of their job search through common sense, honest advice, and insider information. Skills to Achieve unmasks the intimidating and bewildering hiring process and gives job seekers the tools, knowledge, and confidence to go out and land the position that's perfect for them.
The whole point of this program is to make you the best candidate, not just another candidate, says Harlock. I don't promise you're going to get a job. Anyone who does promise employment is lying.
But what I do promise is that when you finish this program, you'll be in a much, much stronger position to get a job, he adds. You'll understand what's going on behind the scenes, and how hiring managers think. You'll tailor every aspect of your application toward getting their attention and getting the interview. You'll take charge of the interview, you'll be a much stronger candidate and, at the end of the day, you're going to increase your opportunities tenfold.
You're not helpless at all. You can have complete control of this process.
The Skills to Achieve program, which involved two years of research, development, and testing from conception to its mid-September launch, is composed of a four-step process with three hours' worth of valuable information that leads job seekers through the entire hiring process.
Modules include: Getting Your Edge or learning what makes you stand out to a hiring manager; learning how to build a resume that works and will get the attention of a hiring manager; ensuring a resume gets into the right hands, thanks to some valuable trade secrets; and how to Ace the interview process with ease and confidence.
Skills to Achieve clarifies, demystifies, and ultimately empowers, says Harlock, giving job seekers the self-assurance to stand out in the crowd.
This program gives you hard skills that will last a lifetime, says Harlock. I'll teach you how to clearly identify what job you want, tailor your resume to a particular job ad, follow up on your application and go get answers, and tell them what you want them to hear, not what you think they want to hear.
I'm going to tell you what works.
The Skills to Achieve program is beneficial to people new to North America, workers who've gone through the downsizing process, or those who haven't completed high school, but it's just as useful to employees who have a post-secondary education, and are gainfully employed, but are not particularly happy or challenged in the workplace. Skills to Achieve is applicable to jobs ranging from entry-level positions up to middle manager and supervisory roles.
Skills to Achieve, with an accessible and competitive price point of $147 USD for all four modules, is a web-based program (http://www.skillstoachieve.com) with downloadable workbooks and offers ongoing training options such as webinars, career tips, and advice based on market trends.
Harlock has based his Skills to Achieve program on interviews with literally hundreds of hiring managers, and thousands of candidates, through his years of experience and expertise performing recruitment consulting services. He knows the hiring process inside and out, and has taught aspects of his system at post-secondary institutes and English as a Second Language (ESL) schools.
At the end of the day, you've got to be happy doing what you do. If I can get people into jobs they're excited about, then I did my job so I get to be happy, he says. I want to empower people.
