A gentle reminder - Stop self-rejecting. 

You don’t need to check off every item on a job description to apply 

Stop telling yourself you are not good enough for the role or the organization. 

Think of a job description like a wish list - you never get everything you ask for! Hiring managers know this, as an HR professional who has interviewed over 1000 candidates, I know this, so don’t disqualify yourself.

 Here's what you should remember: 

 - There’s a difference between required and desired skills.
 - Organizations are looking for not just the technical skills, but also the right attitude, fresh perspective, emotional intelligence and someone easy to work with 

Research shows Women and ethnic minorities are less likely to apply to roles if they’re not 100% qualified. 
So I challenge you today, if you meet 70% and have the grit, go for it.

People are getting hired every day who aren’t the perfect match on paper. Believe in your skills and experience. Take a chance on yourself! 

Remember, there is someone out there who is way less qualified than you, living the job and life you desire

And you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

Three weeks ago, a client reached out to me, excited about his new job offer. He was previously earning $75k and was now offered $120k for a job he truly desired. He was overjoyed and about to accept the offer.

Upon hearing the details of the role, industry, and company, my HR instincts kicked in. I immediately knew he could negotiate for a higher salary.
His question was whether he should sign, and I promptly responded, "This is a good offer, but you can definitely earn more." I guided him on specific steps to take and how to approach the negotiation process. 

Despite the fear in his eyes, it was clear he trusted my advice.

Two days later, he returned to me with a $138k package, thrilled with the outcome.

Here are the 5 strategies I shared with him to help him ask for more:

1. Start High: Think of a number that's higher than what you actually want. It's like setting the stage. When you throw out that first big number, it sticks in their mind, making anything close to it seem more reasonable than if you'd started lower. (Remember to do your market Research) 

2. Give to Get: Before diving into numbers, mention something you're excited to bring to the table or how you see yourself fitting in. It's like saying, "I'm here to give my all," which makes them more likely to bump up their offer.

3. Why You Deserve It: Have your reasons ready. Maybe it's the going rate for your job in the industry, your experience, or what you uniquely bring to them. When you lay out the facts, it's harder for them to argue with your ask.

4. Embrace the Awkward Silence: After you mention your number, zip it. Let them fill the silence. It's a little trick to nudge them into responding, maybe even with a better offer than they first had in mind.

5. Plan B: Know your backup plan and let it show a bit that you have options. Not in a threatening way, but just to show you know your worth. It's like saying, "I'd love to work here, but I know what I can offer and need to make sure it's valued.

The key is to first understand your worth and then know how to ask for it.

Remember, organizations always have a pay band, and most times, they are willing to go above and beyond for great talent

When you realize the compounding effect of not negotiating for the salary or the promotion you both want and deserve, you will start to take your career as your own business. 
 
When you realize that someone in your organization, doing the same job or possibly less, is earning more than you, you will begin to take your career as your business. 
 
When you realize your earnings are just a fragment of the company's profits, and that your income is only secure after others have taken their larger shares, you will decisively take your career as your business. 
 
When you realize that your income has been predetermined by someone else's calculations and evaluation of your worth, you will emphatically take your career as your business. 
 
When you realize time is passing by—time you can't get back—and should be accounted for as value, not just now but for the future, you will seriously take your career as your business. 
 
The key is knowing how to ask. 
 
Master the art of presenting your case logically, with data and facts that cannot be disputed. 
 
Show the value you have contributed and can continue to contribute. 
 
 Remember, life doesn't hand out desires; it responds to YOUR DEMANDS! 
 
So, what's holding you back from taking your career as your business?

5 misconceptions immigrants are told about finding jobs in Canada:

1. Starting All Over: 

Some say that you are starting from the scratch, thats a inaccurate- Your global experience is an asset, not a setback. 

Reframe it by aligning your skills with Canadian needs and exploring further education or certifications to enhance your marketability.

2. Foreign Experience doesnt matter:

I hear some folks you cant get jobs since you dont have canadian experience, your job is to highlight your transferable skills and seek employers who value diverse perspectives. 

Your international background is a unique advantage in the globalized Canadian workforce.

3. You must have Canadian Work Experience to get great jobs: 

Canadian experience is good but not insurmountable - you can gain local experience through volunteering, internships, or entry-level jobs. 

These steps are crucial for understanding Canadian workplace culture and expanding your network. This is important to Canadians

4. Certifications doenst Matter: 

While some folks get jobs without it, Certifications can validate your skills and knowledge to employers. 

Research and pursue those recognized in your field to bridge any qualification gaps. It Increases credibility for most employers 

5. Networking is not a big deal: 

Canada is big on REFERALS- Some folks excuse is that they are shy or not used to this, i understand, but to thrive, build professional connections from day one through industry events, online platforms, and community involvement. 

Networking opens doors to opportunities and insights into the job market.

If you found this helpful, share it with someone who recently moved to Canada or is searching for a job here.

With 7 years of experience as an HR professional in my home country, it took me over 600 additional applications to land a job as a recruiter in Canada. 

This experience was humbling but also had some adverse effects on my self-worth. 

I began to doubt myself and my skills. I've been there, and that's why I'm on a mission to help professionals lead better lives and land their dream jobs without submitting 600 applications.

Finding it tough with your boss? 

In my over ten years in HR, I've seen many workers who feel overwhelmed. 

It's really about how you handle tough times with your boss. 

Do you want to quit anytime things get rough with a boss or coworker? I don't think so.
