Social Recruiting, Magnetic Branding & Job Search 2.0 Speaker

Shahid Wazed | Social Recruiting & Branding Expert

Thank you for stopping by, appreciate your time! Let me take you on a journey...

I had a very humble beginning. I did not even know what the word “Resume” meant back in 2003. So I Googled the word only to find out I had nothing but a blank resume!

So I developed a killer job search strategy that helped me land my dream jobs one after another with Canada’s Top 100 employers such as Nexen Inc. and Shell Canada.

Then something happened. Life taught me a lesson that will come to shape the rest of my career. I pursed an MEC instead of an MBA at Dalhousie University where I focused my research on Social Media recruiting.

The rest is history.

I now develop and implement industry leading Social Media recruiting and sourcing strategies for the City of Edmonton. I created the “City of Edmonton Jobs” page on Facebook from the ground up, which won a Standard of Excellence Award from the New Media Institute in New York!

As for sharing my expertise on social recruiting and social branding, I speak at leading conferences worldwide.
