Having an MBA degree does not guarantee a job, especially with 7.2% unemployment in Ontario.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
You’ve worked hard to earn your degree, and now it’s time to make the most of it and find yourself a job out in the real world to flex your newly-built business muscles. The only problem? You’re not the only one looking for jobs online. ContactMonkey has the solution, and is offering its service free for graduating MBA students from the Richard Ivey School of Business, Schulich School of Business and the Rotman School of Management.
Graduation is the easy part. Getting the job is when it gets tough.
More often than not, a job-hunter that submits an application and sits back with crossed-fingers waiting for a reply, won't get one. And they certainly won't get the job.
With online job boards, employers are inundated with applications and many resumes end up in the dreaded "slush pile," or worse -- in the trash. It's hard to stand out from other highly-qualified applicants and it’s a well-known fact that a properly-timed follow-up can mean the difference between getting the job, or remaining unemployed until the next good opening comes up. Believe it or not, you’re not the only MBA in the market looking for a good job.
There's a new wave of job-hunters that have figured this out and are using new tools to ensure they get the job. One of the sharpest tools in their toolset is email tracking software, like that from ContactMonkey.
ContactMonkey offers email-tracking software that lets users see exactly when and where their email has been read, when and how many times their resume is downloaded, and even whether their message has been forwarded to someone else.
"Having an MBA degree does not guarantee a job, especially with 7.2% unemployment in Ontario," Alex Smith, ContactMonkey CMO said. "We want to help determined graduates get a job which is why we are offering our service free to the top 3 MBA schools in Canada."
The Toronto-based company has extended a special offer to graduating MBA students from the Schulich School of Business, Richard Ivey School of Business and the Rotman School of Management to use the service for free in Gmail, and Outlook.
