Canada Career Counselling helps people determine their ideal career direction and make strategic decisions for their career development. Serving clients at our welcoming office at Bay & Bloor in Toronto, as well as virtually, we are a group of Psychologists, Career Coaches, and Personal Branding Specialists. We’re growing so we can support even more people searching for career fulfillment and growth.
Are you our next Career Advisor?
Everything you do comes from a place of wanting to help others.
You are highly knowledgable about varied job functions, industries, and job search techniques. You are consultative and work collaboratively with your clients to create job search materials and strategies that contribute to positive results. Your entrepreneurial nature and self-motivation allow you to work independently and build opportunities for yourself.
We have people constantly asking for help with their resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and related job search materials. Our clients also need practical job search coaching and customized strategies, including interview preparation.
We need you to respond to this demand by consulting on how you can help. Once you’ve engaged a client you’ll set to work developing personal branding content and job search programs that build confidence, teach essential job search skills, and facilitate professional growth.
Your experience in resume writing, cover letter creation, LinkedIn optimization and training makes you a personal branding expert.
Your experience in career transition, job search, and recruitment enables you to develop programs that help people obtain new positions.
This is a flexible role. Since you’ll be responsible for connecting with prospects and closing your sales, you’ll have the potential to grow your practice into as many hours as you’d like to work. We have inquiries coming in daily to our website, phone lines, and from clients working with our Career Counsellors. Our established team wants to share resources, processes, administration, and best practices – as well as qualified leads.
