Where should my friend apply for a job?
My friend recently got her Masters Degree in Organic Agriculture and
is now looking for work. Her thesis project involved intercropping
with wheat and canola. Additionally, she has interests in organic
agriculture in general, and in "heritage" varieties of plants. She
has already applied at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and various
positions in the University of Manitoba, so please don't suggest
those. Also she would never work for the Monsanto corporation, so
don't suggest that one either.
She is a Canadian living in Canada, so I'm only interested in jobs
inside Canada unless it is a company that could be reasonably expected
to go to the trouble and expense of importing her.
As a hint, my intuition says that since Alberta is so awash in oil
money, maybe there would be greater chance of finding something there.
Maybe something in reclaimation of the tarsands.
Sorry, I don't have her resume, but as I said, she has a Master's
degree in organic agriculture. It has been her passion for years.
She is not bilingual, but could learn french over time if the job
What I am looking for in an answer:
Ideally Where and Who. Where the company / government agency is
located, and who to contact there. As many high-quality leads as
possible. It doesn't have to be a link to a
specific listing on Monster.ca, I would assume that those kinds of job
boards have already been searched by her. Which entities have
openings but aren't posting on those job boards? Who does the
reclaimation in Alberta, and how do they hire? Do you have to know
What I'm not looking for:
"Earn $$$ by taking surveys online!", ie, it should be related to her
experience and there should be a reasonable expectation that there is
an opportunity currently available.
I don't know if Google Answers supports this, but there would be a tip
of $100 for an answer that leads to a job offer.
