Bring Your Job Applications to Life

Are you tired of sending out your resume for a job and not hearing back? Now you have a one-of-a-kind opportunity that is quick, simple, and guaranteed to introduce you to leading engineering employers without depending exclusively on your resume.

Think about it, the story your resume tells is the one the readers/screeners create in their mind… it is not your story it is the story that they narrate. Instead, would it be great to bring your story to life, have the narrative controlled and told by you rather than relying on the vagaries of resume selection only?  Well a video introduction can do that and when it is guaranteed to be reviewed by an employer and a human reviewer with engineering credentials, that is a breath of fresh air as compared to the usual black hole of job search.

As research shows, 55/38/7, communication is 55% body language, 38% tone of voice and 7% words… then does that mean that your resume only speaks to a reviewer at 7% of what you could achieve live? I do not know about you, but I would not want to leave my destiny in the hands of a resume reviewer- I want to take charge of my future. That is why Transition to Hired (TTH), created the Virtual Interview Connection (VIC) to provide you with a one-on-one meeting with an employer through video.

The pandemic has changed a lot about our lives, including how we find jobs. TTH has introduced VIC to host virtual employment events for engineers to make your job search easier and faster. The vision behind VIC is to put the personality back into the application process, speed up the hiring process, make interviews more comfortable, make attending interviews more convenient, and less time consuming for you.

By using VIC, the game changing video platform, the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) is now able to bring your job applications and interviews to life. OSPE’s Virtual Engineering Employment Events (VE3) take place from the comfort of your home and career opportunities are available at all levels with top engineering companies.

Here is more good news to embrace and to help counter these difficult times if you are looking for work or looking to step up in your career. Many engineering companies and engineers will benefit from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s outline on how the Canada Infrastructure Bank intends to invest $10 billion in projects that will create 60,000 jobs and contribute to the fight against climate change which will undoubtedly create more engineering jobs. For those who want early access to these potential new jobs, you have an opportunity now to introduce yourself by video to many of these engineering major players at the VE3. The engineering companies are ramping up hiring and it is your chance to get on their target list and have a fruitful and prosperous winter working remotely and safely.

It is your choice: leave your career to chance by relying on a resume, or take charge of your message, demonstrate your mastery of the new way of communicating through video and deliver your message live and directly to employers that are hiring.
