Taking a Shot

Taking a Shot - The Job Window

You miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take. – Wayne Gretzky

Waiting for the Opportunity

Have you ever found yourself wondering if you should even bother applying for a job? Maybe they’re asking for more experience than you have. Or perhaps it sounds like certain aspects are outside of your comfort zone. Maybe you found a job that would be perfect for you, but in the back of your mind you’re already telling yourself that there are going to be so many applicants you shouldn’t even bother trying.

Do you have a suggestion that might improve something within the company, but you’re not sure if your boss will like the suggestion? Take a cue from Wayne Gretzky.

Taking a Shot

Wayne Gretzky is the National Hockey League’s top goal scorer of all time. He scored 894 goals over his career. He also took 5,089 shots. That’s a success rate of 5.7%. That’s not bad, but it’s not amazing either. The hockey great didn’t only shoot the puck when he knew it was going to go in. If he did, he would have ended up with far fewer goals at the end of his career. He fired the puck often because he knew the only way to score, is to shoot.

Hitting the Mark

The same is true for your job search. If you don’t apply, you won’t get the job. If you don’t make the suggestion to your boss, he or she will never know you’re looking to improve the company. What’s the worst thing that can happen when you apply for a job you might be a little under experienced for? They don’t call back? Weigh that against the opportunity of getting a job you want! Worried about your boss not liking your idea? The worst thing that’ll happen is, your boss will turn you down, but they’ll know you’re thinking about improving things and they’ll remember that.

So take a shot because if you don’t, you’re guaranteed to miss.

The Job Window Expanding into Canada

Ever since The Job Window started a little over two months ago, we gathered clients from the U.S. to help their sales and marketing firms hire entry-level candidates. After great success with this, our company has now secured a few CANADIAN sales and marketing firms that we will be helping to hire entry-level applicants.

The people in Canada whom we will be screening for hire will be performing the same duties at the as the employees in the U.S. However, Instead of being stationed in Sam’s Club for the marketing events, they will be in Canadian Tire.

The road show business has been growing in Canada and becoming more and more successful every year. This is due to the amount of products that are sold during the 10 to 12 day event period compared to when the merchandise is just sitting on the shelves at Canadian Tire.

For now, The Job Window will only be recruiting around the Greater Toronto Area and only for sales and marketing firms that execute events at Canadian Tire. However, our team of recruiters are currently speaking with other large retailers in other provinces to host road shows and create more jobs around the country.

If you live in the GTA, a fresh graduate and looking to work with a team of enthusiastic individuals who will value your skills, these entry-level opportunities will be posted on the weekend on three of the major job boards: http://www.Monster.ca, http://www.Indeed.ca and http://www.Careerbuilder.ca.

In the meantime, if you are a U.S. resident looking for work, there are many marketing firms who are currently hiring in some states. Check it out: http://bit.ly/16LI9x5

Good luck everybody and we look forward to hearing from all of you!
