The Daily Quote

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
– Henry David Thoreau

The Linx

Social media plays an important role in the job search but it doesn’t mean that all networking takes place on line – we still have to meet people in person.

– Worrying about memory loss makes it hard for us to remember things.

– A strong opening line can make it more likely that an employer will read our cover letters.

The News

– Many people are drawn to working as a contractor with companies like Uber because of the ability to set their own work schedules. In order to make a livable wage however, “surge-pricing” often dictates when people have to work

– Drilling activity is picking up in Alberta’s oil patch, but uncertainty is making it hard for workers to return.

– There is lots of construction activity in Nanaimo.
