Applying for a job in Canada

Applying for a job in Canada may be very different than in your home country. There are certain “rules and regulations” to follow in terms of what information to include on your CV/resume and cover letter. Your resume should for example not specify anything about salary requirements, age of children and their names, your height / weight, and reasons for leaving previous jobs.

Jobs are available in a number of different mediums such as newspapers, internet, employment centers, through headhunters, job banks, networking, and job fairs. The process of obtaining a job in Canada begins with you and your strengths and weaknesses. Do you know what your potential is?

A proven strategy to obtain a job begins with a self-analysis of your strength and weaknesses. Once you know what you can contribute with to a company, it is time to write the cover letter and CV / resume. When you are called for interviews, you need to know how to present yourself and what questions to expect. Many jobs are lost because individuals are not prepared for the job interview.
