Getting hired for any company sure seems tough these days with all the barriers to getting hired like online forms, video interviews, online assessments, aptitude testing. In my old hometown of Comox BC, we stumbled upon this tried and true hiring method. Always accept resumes and accept them from people who can get off their butt, come down to where work happens and drop off a resume!

We only get 1-2 job seekers a month visiting us yet we have dozens of jobs we are trying to fill at any one time. The good old fashion meet and greet method of finding a job, or god forbid calling people you know has somehow gotten out of fashing in this age of digital networking and online job boards.
Here’s a suggestion how about you skip LinkedIn, indeed and even Red Seal’s website and actually show up to apply for a job?
