“How to Line UP YOUR Next Contract”  with recruiting guru, Paul Hill.

This event is taking place on Tuesday November 27th at 7 p.m. at Metro Hall, 55 John Street, Room 302.

Free if you are a member of our Endorsing Associations.  Otherwise, we charge $35. All profits go to the Make A Wish Foundation. 

Please note this event is being held at Metro Hall, Room 302. Metro Hall is located at 55 John Street in downtown TO. John Street runs north and south between King and Wellington, west of University Ave. 

The “new full-time job” for many is a series of contracts. Financial success comes down to shortening the gap between contracts. With digital walls blocking most communication today and the necessity to keep the job pipeline full there is an urgency to find ways that work to get in front of decision makers and land that next or first ever contract.

The online resume crap shoot, the “click and hope” tactic is no way to gamble on your career.  Paul Hill, author of The Panic Free Job Search shows you how to:

  • Generate decision makers’ names, contact them and get them to meet you
  • Keep your job pipeline full
  • Use LinkedIn and make it work for you
  • Move from full-time to contract
  • Think global not just local -“think like a business not like a person”
  • Get head-hunters/placement consultants to help you not hinder you.
  • Leverage A-C-T and close the deal
  • Dump personal branding ideology and tackle professional branding marketing

Decision makers will only hire you if they can resolve the following, get to know you, like you and finally trust you before they make the decision to hire you. They will trust you when your message demonstrates without a doubt how you can make them money, save them money or both. Sign-up now if financial success in contracting is important to you. Seating is limited.

The seminar is powerful, practical and enjoyable. Hope to see you there.

Your customers want someone whom they can trust, someone who really understands them and their needs. Your colleagues want to build relationships with someone they like and someone they will be pleased to refer. Think of the last networking meeting you attended. As others introduced themselves were you committed to listening helpfully even when they were slow to get to their point? And were you effective when you were introducing yourself?
