Search for a Job

More than likely you’ll be applying for a job in Canada, either before you apply for a permit, or when you land. Check with us before you start a job search. You may need to be located in a certain province/community to be eligible for an immigration program that is advantageous for a future permanent resident application.

There are many ways to look for jobs, such as:

  • research companies where you want to work
  • check the company website for openings
  • contact employers directly to ask if they are interested in hiring someone with your skills

Above all – sell yourself – because this might be the only time the employer has to listen to your pitch.

According to Forbes Magazine,

‘Think of “you” as a superhero version of yourself. Make a list of your best qualities. Dress the way SuperYou would dress. Talk the way SuperYou would talk. Be SuperYou. Role play. It’s a part. Experiment. This is play.’
