    Negotiation is always a challenge, but counter offers are their own unique beast altogether.

    From Beer Guy to Amazing Race Canada: Career inspiration from Jon Montgomery

    From Beer Guy to Amazing Race Canada: Career inspiration from Jon Montgomery

    The expression “just be yourself” may be a cliché, but every now and then, you meet someone that proves just how beneficial that kind of approach can be.

    Consider the case of Jon Montgomery…an Olympic gold medalist in 2010, he made headlines around the country for celebrating with a pitcher of beer. He’s since turned that confident, fun-loving persona into a successful run as the host of the Amazing Race Canada.

    We spoke to the man himself, and got his take on career changes, confidence, and how to be a good teammate.

    Microchips and automation: Workplace predictions from a futurist

    Would you let your company implant a microchip in your hand?

    Well, there are 50 people in Wisconsin who are doing just that. Employees at Three Square Market, a provider of break room solutions, will soon have a microchip between their thumb and index finger, which will let them buy snacks, log into computers, and use the company printer.

    Is this a sign of things to come for the Canadian workforce? To find out, we spoke with futurist Richard Worzel.

    Resume writing tips from a resume expert

    In theory, writing a resume should be easy. It's just a short document listing all your experience and skills. In practice, though, writing an effective resume (one that lets you stand out from the crowd) can be very challenging.

    To shed some light on the fine art of resume writing, we spoke to Sonya Matheson, Workopolis’ employer branding and recruitment services manager.

    How to stand out at a career fair

    The campus career fair is an amazing way for students to connect with potential employers – but it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. We sat down with Shawn D’Souza, Workopolis’ own talent acquisition manager to talk about getting the most out of the process (and, most importantly, some of the most common career fair mistakes that students make).
