How can I get a job in Canada as a Foreign Worker?
Question: How can I get a job in Canada as a Foreign Worker?
I can’t find an employer who will even GET BACK TO ME. Where can i find Canadian employers who will consider hiring me as a foreign worker or on a temporary visa or something like that?
Whether you’re looking for your very first job, switching careers, or re-entering the job market after an extended absence, finding a job in Canada requires at least two main tasks: understanding yourself and understanding the job market.
There are two ways to get into Canada, temporarily (with a visa, “to visit”) and permanently (with permanent residence, “to immigrate”). Visas are somewhat hard to come by unless you’re in a niche market.
Here are several ways to actually get a job.
Research the company: Canadian Database for Int’l Professionals they put jobs out there by employers who have prior form in recruiting foreign workers. You can subscribed and start applying to jobs.
Be stable. A company doesn’t want to hire someone with wanderlust who still wants to relocate. Be prepared to outline why you are where you are today, how long you intend to stay there, and why.
Use placement agencies. They sometimes keep a good chunk of your income for themselves, but they can get you decent placements, so you can improve that resume. Never go to just one agency. Always go to as many as possible. It is easy and it increases your chances a lot!
You could also try certified immigration firms but you will have to pay them to do your paperwork.
Lastly but no less once you are in Canada go to those career workshop places run by the government, which is FREE. These places some of them are specifically for new immigrants but I have someone who has been in Canada for 7 yrs and still joined. Those places teach you how to write resume, go to interview etc. after that they send you to companies where you volunteer for those companies for 3-4 months. So you actually have to be there for 40 hours per week. My old company is part of this program and after 3 months they actually do hire the employee.
