TORONTO, August 9, 2011 – When the golf season ends this year, golf professionals from the PGA of Canada will have a new way to demonstrate their numerous skill sets and enhance their off-season employment opportunities between the months of November and April. Randstad Canada, the country’s leader in staffing, recruitment and HR services, and the PGA of Canada have formed a partnership to create the Randstad PGA of Canada Seasonal Career Development Program.
