Job Opportunities for Ethnic Minority Students & Graduates
People from ethnic minorities are no longer automatically disadvantaged in modern Canada, athough racism still exists, progress on promoting racial equality in the last decade helped to create a society that is more comfortable with diversity than ever before, “Canada today is not the same place as it was a decade ago”.
It is evident throughout the professions. Ethnic minority students in Canada are winning places in top and diverse firms only to be channelled into less commercial areas of technology, health, law, broadcasting, investment banking, teaching, the police and the and Civil Service. They work hard to qualify. They work hard to get training contracts. Just like all locals born students do. Only to find themselves caught in the centre of a corporate maze, where all the exit routes are career dead ends. They have neither the contacts nor the networks that other local students have. But social media and networking groups are helping to change that. And they have an important role to play.
