Why should you consider coming to (or staying in) Ottawa to find a job?  Did you know that since 2010 Ottawa has been ranked by MoneySense as the best city in which to live, work and play?

Ottawa offers a number of benefits to job seekers that make it stand out from the Torontos, Montreals and Vancouvers of the country.  Granted there aren’t too many comparables to the big three but you get the gist.

So what is it that makes Ottawa so attractive?

As a consultant, you walk into the office and notice you’re one of the first people on the job.  You throw on a pot of coffee.  You sit down at your desk, boot up the computer and get back to work on a deliverable you’d been up late working on the night before.

Slowly your co-workers, or the “employees”, drift into the office talking about the morning traffic, their relaxing evening of television, some upcoming sporting event or just to complain about the coffee.  You ignore the drone of voices surrounding your workspace and keep plugging away.  When they finally do get down to work it’s nearly break time and, before you know it, they are back up milling about.

Yet there you are, head down at your desk and pushing forward.  You feel like you pretty much carry the team.  So, why don’t they like you?

Take advice from any source. You don’t have to use all or any of it, but take it and thank them for it. You never know when the real nuggets are offered to you.

Try and find someone at work you like, who has experience and is willing to share their expertise and experiences and ask them to be your mentor.  It doesn't have to be a formal situation. It can be very informal and happen only when both parties are available and have some time.

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone all the best at this time of year.  In business it is easy to get caught up in timelines, budgets and office politics.  I think the holidays are a great way to force most of us out of the office, even for a brief respite, to enjoy time with family and friends.

We at MGIS hope that your holidays are relaxing, enjoyable, fun and most of all safe.

To all of our consultants and clients: Thank you for your hard work, support and dedication.
