How feasible it is to get an employment offer, work permit, etc. to move to Canada

Jobs, especially higher paying jobs these days takes a kick ass resume with cover letter, nailing the interviews and letting them know you are the person for them, and a lot of blessing, considering there are so many college graduates out there right now. The competition for attractive fields is absolutely fierce!!

 Getting an employment offer ( in Canada)

Focused heavily on networking and referrals.  Editing and revising your resume and cover letters its essential to clearly communicate your past experiences. The  basic portfolio  I have created should serve as an additional way to express who I am, what qualities I possess, and showcase some documents I can provide as samples. Participating in mock interviews can helped you to identify weaknesses that you can focus on and prepare for before real interviews.

If you receive a job offer from a Canadian company, your visa application process will be much easier!

I strongly recommend obtaining a job offer from a Canadian company before submitting your visa application. If you can get this document, it will not only help you settle easier in Canada , but it will also increase your Pass Mark assessment.

Let me explain the way a job offer will help you increase your Pass Mark assessment:

You will receive 10 points if:

– You have a permanent job offer in Canada . However, please note that this offer has to be confirmed by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC).

If you are already in Canada (with a temporary work permit), and you decide to apply from within the country, you will also receive points in the following situations:

You will receive 10 points if:

– Your temporary work permit was issued after receiving a confirmation of a job offer from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada ;
– Your temporary work permit was exempted from the requirement of a issued after receipt of a confirmation of your job offer from HRSDC (due to an international agreement).

Also if it represents a relevant benefit to Canada or its competitiveness (i.e. intra-company or post-graduate work respectively).

Now how feasible it is to get a job  offer ?

You have to be not only qualified for the job but also highly skilled at competing for it.

To be successful, you must do these three things:

1. Have an interview plan. The interviewers have a plan for what questions they’ll ask you and what information they’ll need to obtain to determine if you’re qualified for the job

2. Prepare answers for the questions you’re most likely to be asked. You can analyze the job description to figure out the questions you’re most likely to encounter during your interviews

3.  Know your interviewers before you step in the room or get that phone interview. You can often get valuable information about your interviewers with just a Google ( GOOG – news – people ) name search. You particularly want to know what positions they currently hold at the company, how long they’ve been there, what other companies they’ve worked for and what schools they attended.

Work permit ( in Canada)

To work in Canada, you will first need residency – if you are lucky enough to have a written offer of employment before arriving, you can get a work permit.
You can get a residence permit without a job offer providing you fulfill certain requirements. For citizens of USA or certain EU countries, this process is made much easier, but even then you need to jump through some bureaucratic hoops. Canada immigration has more information about this.

Securing your residence permit isn’t the end of the bureaucracy, though – once you’ve got the stamp in your passport, you’ll need to head off to the Canada tax Revenue.

Apart from enabling you to experience the joys of paying one of the world’s highest taxes, Revenue Canada also works in partnership with SNN or where Canadian’s population register, so this is where to apply for your personal number (Social Number). You need this in order for your employer to be able to pay you – not to mention to be able to open a bank account, use your credit card, or do practically anything else in Canada.

Still, all this can take time, and some people need a bank account before all the paperwork is ready. One of the few banks to offer accounts to people without personal numbers is Royal York.
The CV

Depending on the job you’re applying for, it could well be worth getting your CV (or resume, if you prefer) translated into English. But even if it is in English, tailoring it to Canadian employers’ or Companies expectations is vital.

I advised that in Canadian CVs typically begin with a list of experience first (from most recent job backwards) followed by educational achievements. “Write what you can do, not what you are interested in – not that you like to walk in the woods with your family or whatever,”. “Employers want to see what you can offer them, what specialist skills you have.”
The Interview

On the subject of interview attire, Canadians generally takes a more relaxed approach than most English-speaking nations.

In Canada  suits are not usually necessary:

“It’s more important to be clean and presentable – casual is ok as long as the clothing isn’t extreme.”

Arriving clad in a suit will normally only be required in companies or departments staffed by professionals such as banks, lawyers or accountants, though if in doubt it is probably better to dress up rather than down.

I would also recommends doing some research into the company before you attend the interview, and if you have been referred through a recruitment agency check with your consultant as to whether formal office clothes are likely to be expected.

If the role requires you to speak English or French (both officials Languages of Canada), but bear in mind that the interview is likely to be conducted in English. Once you’ve said your goodbyes, a follow-up call to see when you’re likely to hear back will usually indicate enthusiasm, although it’s worth asking at the interview about timescales for feedback.
