How much reason there is in that sentence!

I couldn't agree more! Such a great gem from a brilliant businessman.

My boss should join this conversation. She thinks exactly the opposite

It was true back then and it is true to this day. There's a reason SO MUCH money is dumped into marketing efforts year over year.

Have a big interview tomorrow. The question I dread the most is about why you’re looking for a new job.

Does anyone have any experience with General Motor’s HireVue process?


Hi everyone! I need your help here. A quick background:

Junior copywriter based in Toronto here. Came to Canada about a year ago and did an internship at Klick Health.

Once it ended in late August, they didn't take on ANY intern full time. Been job searching for the past 3 months. Would really appreciate any leads/insight on some entry level gig or internship that might be available in this city. I know it's year end and it's hard, but I am still hopeful as I have seen people still get hired.
