Thanks a lot for sharing these webinars. I’m implementing this useful, newly acquired knowledge to networking and contacting employers.

From October 20th, 2017, I started applying online to pretty much any position that matched my profile (or at least like 60%). I've applied to over 200 jobs. Got about 6 or 7 calls. I've had 3 in-person interviews and 2 on the phone. TD offered me a job as IT Support Analyst III, a permanent position, and I'm going to start on February 7th, 2018.

I enjoyed your webinars today, and I have already made some edits to my resume based on what you taught us.
