Visiting one construction site, Doug was greeted by a man dressed in a shirt and tie. Turns out he was one of the owners of JJM Construction – the ninth largest contractor in British Columbia. After a discussion about his experience and training, and how he could help the company, Doug went on his way. By the time he got back home there was a message from the gentleman asking Doug to call. Find out what the man had to say. Read Doug's story here, http://www.neilsquire.ca/success-stories/talking-future-employer/

Specializing in education and workplace empowerment, the Society has served over 25,000 people since 1984.
