Thanks Lynda Goldman.
Migrating to Canada is one of the biggest turning point in many of our lives as newcomers and initially finding a job seems like the biggest challenge we face but not so.
The challenges continue and you best be equipped for the next phase in the journey that continues ahead, acculturization into Canada and her workplace.
Lynda's book breaks this down in bite size nuggets for newcomers in the Canadian workspace. Some things seem very commonsensical and some things new but having them documented for a good read gives it that value.
You will soon realize that it is not just about getting a new job, it is about climbing the corporate ladder, upgrading responsibility areas, transitioning to better opportunities and finally reaching the 'manzil' that you were looking for.
A two hour read is but a mere price to pay in your journey forward to equip you with these words of wisdom.
Makes a good collectors item too as it will stay valid for years to come.
Finally the good thing about this book is that it is not Lynda giving us her gyan like in many other cases but she has very nicely brought in comments and opinions from many people who have been in our shoes and can speak from experience.
Buy it, hire it, borrow it or steal it but indeed you must read it.
Be there or be square.
