From a media release:
MARKETPLACE EXPOSES JOB SEARCH AGENCY WHOSE SERVICE DOESN’T LIVE UP TO THE PITCH FRIDAY, FEB. 17 AT 8 P.M. (8:30 NT) ON CBC TELEVISION
With the economy in flux, many Canadians who are job hunting are lured by expensive job search agencies. Marketplace looks at one agency to see if the service lives up to the promises—such as access to insider contacts and the “hidden job market.”
This Friday, Feb. 17, at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC-TV, MARKETPLACE’s Tom Harrington exposes the aggressive practices of a job search marketing firm—one that acts more like a recruitment agency. While this firm does have all sorts of clients, it seems to specifically target new Canadians, charging them for services and information widely—and freely—available.
Winner of the 2011 Gemini Award for Best News Information Series, MARKETPLACE airs Fridays at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC Television and Saturdays at 5:30 p.m. ET on CBC News Network.
