Dear readers,

Let’s be real, job hunting is exhausting. In the age of remote work vs. on-site positions, skilled trades vs. office jobs, and side-hustles vs. stable full-time, it can be hard to know the best path forward as a young professional.

But job hunting can also be exhilarating. The thrill of nailing an interview, refining your resume to highlight all the best parts of you, and the joy when you finally get that call that says, “You’re hired!” Those moments make it all worthwhile in the end.

Still, navigating the new normal takes time, and here at Interrobang, we recognize that finding the perfect job is not as easy as it used to be. That’s why we’re offering tips on everything from killing the LinkedIn game, to refining your online interview skills. Then, there’s Ben Harrietha’s feature on the history and value of unions, because once you get the job, you want to be sure you’re being treated as fairly as you deserve.

Work has also been in the news as of late, with Fanshawe College receiving Minister approval to launch a welding apprenticeship program, which aims to meet the critical demand for skilled tradespeople. This issue even covers the topics of students in Fanshawe’s photography program offering affordable headshots to members of the Fanshawe community.

So as you prepare for the next chapter, remember that for every rejection, there is a dream job waiting for you. For every hour you spend scrolling Indeed, there is hope that sooner or later that “You’re hired” call will come. Be patient, and don’t settle for less than you deserve.

Sincerely,

Hannah Theodore
