How to get 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 Curriculum Vita (CV). or resume as well as cover letter. For example, depending on the position, applicants may be expected to submit a one page resume, as opposed to a CV. Your resume and CV should not specify salary requirements, marital status, age of children and their names, your height / weight, and reasons for leaving previous jobs.

Jobs are available in a number of different avenues such as newspapers, internet, employment centers, through headhunters, job banks, networking, and job fairs. The process of obtaining a job in Canada is never easy, and it often involves much preparation and hard work. Job applicants are encouraged to take a thorough inventory of their strengths and weaknesses. Do you know what your potential is?

A proven strategy to help to prepare for job opportunities is to engage in self-analysis and determine what you can contribute to an organization as well as areas which you can improve on. Once you know what you can offer to an organization, it is time to write a cover letter and CV  or resume.
