You deserve a day off, just like anyone else 😎

I've travelled up to Ottawa, Ontario to celebrate Canada Day πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ with friends and was wondering what might be a good topic to cover this week. Then it hit me: vacations.

In short, this is a reminder that no matter where you are in the job hunting journey...

You deserve time to unwind πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ

This week marks both Canada Day and Independence Day, so you'd better believe HR is taking their time to answer back to emails, this short week.

They'll be clearing their desks, making room for urgent matters only and won't be back to their 'normal' schedule until July 8.

So until then, use this time to focus on you:

  • Go visit friends

  • Dine out

  • Have a BBQ

  • Dip your feet in the water

  • Enjoy the sun set

  • Watch some fireworks

There's always time to job hunt tomorrow and the same jobs you see will still be online tomorrow.

Take stock in where you are right now (and you have come a LONG way!)

Before I jump back in the pool πŸ’¦

I wanted to remind you about a FREE talk I'm giving next Tuesday (July 9) at Noon ET, about how to interview confidently and happily.

If you're in Toronto, get your free ticket and check it out in-person at Staples on University Ave, or if you'd prefer to watch from the comfort of home, the talk will be broadcast on Facebook Live

Happy short week, friends!
