Don’t Panic! Careerleaf Offers Workopolis Niche Network Support and Advice from a Canadian Perspective

With the announcement of the sale of Workopolis to Indeed’s parent company, Careerleaf’s thoughts are with the Niche Network Partners, many of whom worked with our own VP of Revenue Operations Jonathan Page when he managed partnerships for Workopolis, as they deal with the uncertainty caused by this announcement.

Jonathan is directly supporting current partners by telephone and email to support them at this challenging time.

We have heard from WNN partners that other white label job board providers are aggressively pursuing them for quick technology transitions. However, Careerleaf is advising WNN partners not to panic, but to take quick actions to mitigate uncertainty. Here are the 4 areas, we recommend you concentrate on.

‘Women in Leadership’ features Afifa – Careerleaf’s CEO and Lead Chocolatier

It’s no secret – when it comes to the CEO position, women are grossly underrepresented in the Canadian workplace. If this list of Canada’s top 100 earning CEOs serves as an appropriate sample, women only represent 3% of these business leaders. Just three percent! The rest of the workplace is 47% female.

It’s a contrast for those of us at Careerleaf, where we’re led by our CEO Afifa Siddiqui. As it turns out, we also came upon the opportunity to feature her for Women in Leadership, a national charity that aims to inspire Canadian women to fulfill their potential by assembling communities, providing mentoring, and organizing networking events.

Curiously, WIL was more interested in telling Afifa’s story as an entrepreneur, rather than her role as our office’s primary merchant of chocolate. Even so, we jumped at the chance, and the feature has just gone live. Check it out here!

Q & A With Careerleaf CEO Afifa Siddiqui

How did Careerleaf get started?The idea we had was to help the average job seeker find their place in the world of work. At the time, I was running my company, TeamCronos, a niche recruiting firm, where we place specialized engineers at the top of their fields. While working with the top 5% of my industry, folks who didn’t necessarily need help finding work, I was also seeing most job seekers we came in contact with struggle to do a job search. The majority of the population doesn’t get much help with landing their ideal careers. And interestingly, many job seekers are doing things that are not necessarily in their best interests. I saw a problem to solve.
