Destination CEO - Beyond the Traditional Way of Job Search in the GTA, is a book that I have been working on for many decades now and it contains some great advice for newcomers to the Canadian workforce or people who've resided in the Greater Toronto Area for a while.

Along with success stories of lucky candidates who were able to use some of the best job development tools as part of the Destination CEO initiative, there are innumerable hacks and techniques that I have come with and tested them in the Toronto Area Workforce. I wanted to log my product - Destination CEO into a guide for anyone who would like to acquire this information for professional purposes in this region. The book promises to be the first step and in most cases the only step an individual would need to take to master the trade of job search in the GTA.

What is Destination CEO?

Destination CEO is a tried and tested product which contains all the necessary tools and techniques for someone to master the art of job search in the GTA. The traditional job search mechanisms are what everyone is familiar with but over the many years, through my work around this region in Canada, I have found trends that go unnoticed, small actions that lead people to the top, approaches that save massive amounts of time, mods to the status quo that gives you an instant edge and lastly, moments that contribute a lot more than others. 

Destination CEO is the packaged version of the above facts and solutions designed specifically for : 

  • Newcomers to the Greater Toronto Area Workforce
  • Graduating students 
  • Seasoned individuals looking for a change
  • Industry professionals and leaders

Here is a video of my interview with Rogers TV about the Employer Engagement Event organized by Destination CEO in partnership with Centennial College in the summer of 2015. The event was held to promote student to employer engagement and provide a great platform for students to display their talents in their respective areas of expertise.

Power Prospecting Workshops

Power prospecting is a very powerful technique that has taken decades of my hard work and research to carefully craft based on the needs of the job market and the Canadian Workforce. If you're looking to fast track your job search or ace an interview even before you attend it, this is the Deus Ex Machina that everyone looks for. It isn't magic on any level as much as it is various techniques clubbed together in an organized fashion with cater to the requirements of the various stages in the job development process and then lead to a successful job search. Of course as you've guessed by now, the book contains vital information that will help you get started on your Power Prospecting. Here is some media on a recent event I held at Centennial College leading up to their Employer Engagement Event.

 Employer Engagement Events

These kinds of events that I hosted at various location across the GTA are designed to promote one thing... You guessed right! - Employer Engagement! They are hybrid professional platforms for the emerging workforce to interact with industry leaders actively in a way that is truly revolutionary. Part of the rewards for those lucky backers contain an exclusive pass to my next Employer Engagement Event. Here is a sample video of the most recent event that we conducted.

Risks and challenges

Once this project is up and running, there are few hurdles that are in sight because my wonderful team and I have devised a fast track process to have the product produced and ready for delivery as planned. I am already working on the book and once that is done, the first hurdle will be to get the audio book produced. Apart from that, I will have to get the printed copies signed and ready for delivery. The above mentioned are the only obstacles in sight which aren't really obstacles in the true sense as much as they are just deadlines that will have to be met within the specified time frame. I am certainly confident that our backers will obtain their rewards on time with optimal quality.
