I am sitting in The Explorer Hotel in Yellowknife the last week of November listening to a lady encourage people to act like lobsters. Down the hall is a cast and crew of hundreds who are heading out into the -39 degree weather to film for this season of Arctic Air (http://www.cbc.ca/arcticair/).

Think you know Job Search?!

Think you know everything about job search?!  I’m telling you, no one does and you definitely can’t believe everything you read on the Internet.
