Here’s what happened in the world of hiring and employment this week:

  1. According to a new BMO poll, nearly half of Canadians are in their ‘dream job’.
  2. But are we turning up to these ‘dream jobs’? Studies show that absenteeism is on the rise. And women have higher absentee rates than men.
  3. You may have noticed in this week that LinkedIn now includes sponsored jobs in your home feed. Now even easier to spot the jobs you might be interested in!
  4. An Ontario case reminds us why you should be careful what questions you ask job applicants.
  5. This week we say goodbye to acclaimed TV Drama ‘Breaking Bad’. Surprisingly, you can learn a few important career lessons from Chemistry teacher turned meth lord, Walter White.

Have a great weekend everyone!
