Your Career

We are compiling resources to help you succeed in your trades, engineering, or technical career search. Please browse the links and feel free to ask us for additional resources or email us with any questions you have.

Job hunting can be time consuming and if you are working full time with no extra time to look in the newspaper or on-line, you may be tempted to take the first offer made to you rather than thoroughly researching the market place.

This is where having Red Seal Recruiting working on your behalf really benefits you:

We will speak with our clients specifically about you and what you have to offer. We work in a confidential manner- your name or personal details will not be disclosed unless you authorize us to do so.

We also work in a proactive manner and we will approach companies who may not be actively recruiting but are always interested in hearing about certain types of skilled individuals.

We aim to get you interviews with companies who are hiring people with your expertise and who can offer you exactly what you are looking for in your next career move.

How often will you contact me?

We will contact you as soon as we can after your registration on We will keep in touch with you throughout the recruitment process if you are applying to a specific vacancy, even if there is no news. If our employers have no immediate openings in your area of expertise, we will not contact you.

How can I make my resume more attractive to potential employers?

We suggest that you have your resume edited by a professional at least once. We would be happy to work with you on your resume and can provide advice as to how to structure it or even re-write it completely if required. See an example here

How will I find time to attend interviews?

Most of our clients understand that it is difficult to get away early to attend interviews sometimes. We work with our clients on finding mutually suitable times and venues for interviews; we will even make our own offices available if required.

Will my current employer find out that I am looking for other work?

Our service is totally confidential. Red Seal will not divulge any personal information unless you authorize us to do so. Keep in mind that once you have agreed to enter into discussions with other employers more people will know of your interest in finding other work.

How do I know if I’m being paid enough?

We do offer free salary advice and salary surveys for clients. We are happy to advise you on the current market rates.

How long will it take you to find me a job?

We cannot guarantee that we will find you a job. We place a percentage of the people that register with us but unfortunately we are not able to place all of them. If you have applied for a specific job advertisement and you are suitable, we may find you a position within days of registering. You may register with us when we have nothing suitable for you, in that case you will be added to our database and contacted when something suitable does arise.

What happens when I send you my resume?

When you register on or send us your resume, we will review your experience and ensure that we only contact you about the most relevant jobs. You should receive notification of receipt immediately and a call or email within 48 hours. We may want to clarify some of your experience, skills, education, etc. If we have current postings or clients interested in your skills we will then set a time to carry out a thorough telephone prescreen. We guarantee that we will not forward your resume to clients until we have spoken with you first.
