As a recent immigrant or someone interested in immigrating to Canada, an employment offer helps make settling into your new province much easier.
While the job search process might be different in your native country, these tips can help you find more career openings and increase your chance of success.
There are resources available for most professions and trades in Canada, but if you are pursuing one of the following careers, these are some of the top in-demand fields in Canada now:
Immigrants can use Service Provider Organizations (SPOs), also known as settlement or employment agencies. These organisations are government-funded, and the majority of them are free to use. They may provide services such as:
Canadian resumes are formatted in a traditional way and employers will want to see concise employment wins rather than a long-winded task list. Avoid making a generic resume and sending it to every job posting you come across. Rather, tailor your resume to each position you apply for. For example, if you have experience in both banking and technology and are applying for an IT position, leave out the banking experience unless it is relevant. Alternatively, you can emphasise any technical experience you gained while working in a bank.
Bridging programmes are educational programs for professionals who have received international training. These programs, which are offered by many Canadian universities, enable professionals to continue their education and skills in order to meet the needs of Canada’s workforce. Newcomers who want to work in a field that requires licencing or credentials will have a better chance if they go through a bridging program. This is due to the difficulty of becoming a licenced professional in any country, and the bridging program assists newcomers in receiving the training required to complete the process.
Simply do a web search for, “province + bridging programs” to generate a list of universities and companies that participate. There are bridging programs available for several different professions, from accounting to optometry.
Depending on your profession, you may be required to certify your previous education, certificates, and work experience. This process is sometimes required because it compares your education and experience to what is equivalent in Canada, allowing you to avoid starting your job search from scratch.
