It's not easy pounding the pavement to find a job. It's even harder when something keeps getting in your way.

This week on Now or Never, follow Canadians as they hustle to find employment and find out how they're turning challenges into opportunities.

We're featuring true stories as they unfold, including a woman who's using vocal tics to her advantage in job interviews, an ex-con who's petitioning to overhaul the justice system so that he can chase his dream career, and a singer-songwriter who's passing around her resume despite being eight months pregnant.
