A New Job for Me? A New Job for You!

Lately, there's been a lot of talk about "The Great Rehire" as companies ramp up following last year's mass layoffs. 

Initially, I was skeptical, but then I heard from two recruiters in the same week. One had a great opportunity that I wasn't really qualified to pursue, so she said she'd be in touch if she found anything better suited to my skill set. 

The other had an opening for a copywriter position at a young but rapidly-growing fintech firm. Though I've been fortunate to have plenty of freelance work to keep me busy, it's always exciting to consider the possibility of a corporate gig with paid time-off and benefits. (I still have no dental or vision coverage... hence this rather large font.)

The HR rep and I had a great conversation, and after three subsequent 45-minute interviews with various executives, I found out this past week that I'm still in the running. (I joke that I've been in long-term relationships with people who know less about me.) 

While I'd be thrilled to advance to the next round, if I don't make it, I'm glad to have had this chance to hone my interviewing skills and a legit reason to shower, put on makeup, and hide out from my family for those video calls. Stay tuned for an update!

Now about that potential job for you...

In the past few months, several people have reached out to me to ask if I knew of anyone hiring in the IT space. (I suppose when you've experienced as many layoffs as we have, people assume you're always looking. They're not wrong!) I referred them to a corporate recruiter who was eager to help.

This week, I was contacted by a sourcing specialist with Telus International | Lionbridge AI who asked what I charge to post a job opening on this blog. Imagine?! I told her that wasn't necessary as I'd be happy to include it. (Maybe it'll generate some good employment karma.) 

While this gig is definitely outside my wheelhouse, as my brother likes to say, I hope it may be right for someone out there reading this. 

When asked about the hiring process, Rebecca, the sourcing specialist, said it's "quite fast, so they could be working within two weeks if they pass all our recruitment checks." 

When asked about compensation, she said more information would be given at the time an offer is made.
