How to get a job with a Canadian company

 Call the hiring company directly. If you can’t connect by phone,  e-mailed questions about the position to the company’s human resources department to see if the job has real potential.
 
I would offer these words of caution and advice for any job seekers: First do your homework: Research potential employers as if you are investing in the company. Avoid blind ads, and concentrate on companies and job openings that match your needs and experience. Protect your information: Online resumes should not include your address, telephone number, or home e-mail address. Instead, set up new e-mail and voice mail accounts that can be cancelled if they become inundated. Study job boards: Although big sites on Internet sites may not be the best way to find a new position, job listings are a good place to jump-start your search and test the effectiveness of your resume. Set realistic goals: Job search sites are a good place to look, but set realistic goals. At worst, they will give you information about the types of jobs that are available. At best, you could land a great new position.
