Most experienced job seekers understand that utilizing personal networks (networking) is a much more effective way of securing a quality career than simply looking online or going through newspaper ads. Although H2H is a web-based program that requires online registration and provides career postings, what sets it apart from other initiatives is that H2H employees are all former members of the Canadian Forces who fully understand the transition challenges, and are dedicated to assisting with a smooth and successful transition on a non-commission basis. At the end of the day, having an informed advocate on your side who knows where you need to go, who you need to talk to and can help facilitate the hiring process makes all the difference in the world to serious job seekers interested in securing a rewarding career in construction.
