So, how did I get here?I’m a Maritimer turned Calgarian, who moved to KW to get in on the tech scene! I attended Saint Mary’s University where I completed a Bachelor of Commerce and a Certificate in Human Resources Management. In 2012 I packed up all of my belongings and moved to Calgary to pursue a career HR. In 2016 I was on the move again! I packed up an apartment, loaded a U-Haul truck and drove from Calgary to Waterloo with my fiancé. We then dropped off all of our belongings with family and took off to Southeast Asia for a three month trek! (PS- It was incredible, everyone should take the plunge and go travel!) After wrapping up our tour of the Banana Pancake Trail, we returned to Canada and I began my job search in Waterloo. I was looking for interesting start-ups with fresh ideas. What I found was the incredible team at Artemis Canada! I am thrilled to be joining a team of passionate professionals who are striving to make the world a better place with one great hire at a time. Let the hunt begin!
What will the new employee do for us?
What does the new employee need to know and be really good at in order perform the tasks listed in above.It’s likely full of technical jargon and obvious catch-alls like “must be a team-player.” In most cases, it’s generic enough that it can be cut and pasted for every similar job opening for the next 3 years. Often, the writing of a job description is a painful and rushed exercise. The result is something resembling a purchase order. This approach to a job description is actually not wrong. Of course every search for a new teammate starts by identifying what needs to be done and by whom. What is wrong is that companies usually stop here and use this document as an ad.
