Jobs beat odds: Canada's numbers make biggest gains in over a decade
CTV News
Canada's economy created an impressive 95,000 new jobs in May — the biggest monthly gain in nearly 11 years — blowing away the expectations of most analysts. Economists had expected anywhere from 10,000 to 15,000 new jobs last month. Instead, the economy created several times more, sending the unemployment rate down one-tenth of a point to 7.1 per cent. Even Prime Minister Stephen Harper seemed a little surprised by the numbers, cautioning that the Statistics Canada monthly reports are subject to wide margins of error.

The Vancouver Sun
The British Columbia economy remained flat in May, while the rest of the country saw the biggest monthly increase in more than a decade. Statistics Canada says B.C. shed only a few full-time positions and gained some part-time jobs. The unemployment rate grew by 0.4 per cent to 6.8 per cent, reversing a slight decrease the month previous, but still remains well below the national rate.

The continuing decline of the 'middle-skill' worker
The Globe and Mail
Canada's "middle-skill" employment sector continues to erode alongside the growth of high-skill jobs, an indication that the labour market is splintering between well-paid, interesting, permanent jobs — and the rest. Canada is not experiencing the same degree of employment polarization as the United States. But it's not immune to global trends either, which show robust demand for some highly-skilled people and fading need for those in the middle.

Vital job-hunting advice for new college grads
CBS News
One in four hiring managers get at least 50 resumes for every open position; one in 10 get 100 resumes. They don't have time to read your resume in detail. Don't write in complete sentences, and use bullets rather than paragraphs. Before your resume even reaches the hiring manager, it will probably be scanned for keywords by an online "bot." All it wants to know is if your resume contains many of the same key phrases as the job description, so be sure to customize your resume for each opening and internalize the job opening's language.

Summer Jobs program benefits employers, students
Northumberland Today
While Canada's economy continues to grow and prosper, the global economy remains fragile. As a trading nation that is part of the world economy, we are not immune to the challenges that other countries face. One specific challenge we face is the growing mismatch of available jobs and the number of individuals looking for work in Canada. That's why the Canadian Government is remaining focused on what matters: Creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for our economy. Our Government was pleased to recently announce the creation of 36,000 jobs for Canadian youth through the Canada Summer Jobs initiative.

4 job hunting tips from the grandfather of career advice
Forbes
When Dick Bolles first published What Color Is Your Parachute? in 1970, he had no idea the outsize impact his career guide would have. "I never dreamed the job hunting problem was so widely faced. The book would have sold ten copies if you got the help you needed at school." Instead, the job-seekers' bible has gone through 42 annual editions, sold 10 million copies in 20 different languages and, in 1994, was named one of the 25 books that "have shaped readers' lives" by the Library of Congress.
