Portable Business and Careers in demand in Canada

So which skills are most in demand? Here are 10 of the hottest:
 
1.  Information technology.  the fastest-growing category of keywords — including HTML5, Android, mobile app, and social media — were in IT, and for instance  we that Network Systems and Data Communications Analysts fits the bill.

The network systems and data communication analyst career field is projected to grow by 30 percent from 2008 – 2018. The rapid spread of computers and technology has demanded an increase in highly skilled workers to develop and maintain systems for new technologies. Systems analysts typically solve problems related to computer technology to meet organizational needs. Network systems and data communications analysts are expected to be among the fastest.

You don’t need a magic wand to notice that it is a  Portable Career and business  in demand in Canada.

The computer software engineer career field is projected to increase by 21 percent since the year 2018. Computer software engineers generally design and develop new computer software systems by incorporating new technologies in a growing range of applications.  Openings for software developers who specialize in applications will rise by more than one-third (34%) since 2018, we are in 2021….rising pay in these fields reflects the surge in demand. What would we do without computers and technology  today? it’s the hottest of all.
 
2. Health care professionals. Partly due to the aging in Canada, health care has been hot for a while now, and the trend shows no sign of slowing. not all Portables but the field of Medical Records and Health Information Technicians , Physical Therapist Aides,  opticians, Veterinary Technologists and Technicians and Fitness Trainers and Aerobics Instructors are. You can open many business with them too. Will the world move forward without health professionals? Nope…..remember you need all your organs, limbs and mind….The health field is always a good investment and it’s always in demand. Can you do much without health? i don’t think so.

3.  Bilingual Health care management and support staff. Don’t have the training or experience to work directly with patients? No worries. “People often overlook the fact that businesspeople run health care companies. “With all the change happening in the system now, there is churn as well as growth. We’re constantly seeing new openings in general management, finance, marketing, human resources, you name it.” Being able to communicate in another language is an asset and it’s very portable.
 
4. Engineers. Note to college students who want their pick of job offers when they graduate: Consider majoring in engineering. A whopping 88% of employers in a new poll by the Society for Human Resource Management bemoaned the difficulty of finding enough engineers to hire.  Civil engineers are in demand too.

 
5. Industrial skills. Think Canadian  manufacturing is slowing down? Think again. Electricians, carpenters, welders. Moreover.  “We’re seeing an increase in industrial hiring in logistics, supply-chain management, and plant management.” As more companies go global, demand for expertise in logistics — the art and science of moving stuff efficiently from one place to another — will continue to heat up.
 
 
6. Life sciences and biotech. Medical innovators ranging in size from Big Pharma down to biotech startups are on a hiring binge. As with health care companies in general, these employers will also need managers and support staff .
 
7. Salespeople/Customer representative. Selling has historically been the closest thing there is to a recession-proof career, and this economic downturn is no exception.  Since they’re the ones bringing the dough in the door, salespeople are often the first to be hired and last to get laid off.  
8. Accounting and finance. Demand for accountants and finance mavens (particularly forensic accountants and compliance specialists) has been climbing steadily for the past several years.
 
9. Discount retailers. “Not to mention any specific company names — everyone knows who they are, anyway — but the big locally discount store companies have flourished during this recession.

 
10. Private equity or wealth firms. Recruiters report that private equity firms are actively seeking management talent for their portfolio companies “across all industries and all functional areas. “They’re poaching already-employed, seasoned managers from big companies — people who can step into either a turnaround situation or a pre-IPO company and make it work. These are challenging jobs, and could be a real feather in a manager’s cap if he or she can bring it off successfully.”

Best way to find work in Canada

Want to work in Canada?

Non-Canadians can become eligible to work in Canada by becoming a Permanent Resident of Canada or obtaining a temporary work permit:

The best way to get a job now is the same as in the ’70s and the ’80s—word of mouth. ”HR and managers are too picky or too precise with candidates. However, I think there are a couple of things that could help job-seekers that go beyond networking.  1) Be willing to accept a job at a lower salary and outside of your field, you can always move up (or out) once you prove your skills and build a reputation/references 2) Similarly, try to get in with a company that develops their employees and promotes from within.

Another super trick is to do the online application, wait a week, then call the HR dept. Ask them when they are starting to schedule interviews. Call back on that date and say, “I am calling to schedule my interview.” Be proactive, in other words. Always ask about the next step.

Non-Canadians can become eligible to work in Canada?

 Permanent Residents

•   Permanent resident status can be obtained independently or, in some cases, with the help of an employer •    Permanent residents have the same rights and freedoms as Canadian citizens (with a couple of exceptions). They may work for any employer in Canada and may stay in Canada indefinitely.

Foreign Workers Requiring Work Permits

•   Require a job offer and employer assistance to obtain a temporary work permit

•    Can obtain a work permit through one of many ways that vary according to citizenship and the job

•    May apply to become Permanent Residents
The chances of obtaining a work permit increase according to demand for your skills in Canada. Skills shortages are determined by local labour market information and needs. Generally, people with specialized skills which are in short supply in are sought after and will have an easier time with the application process.

What are my chances? There are a number of programs that may make the work permit application process faster and easier for the employer, making it easier for them to get you to Canada.

NAFTA Professionals Citizens of the US and Mexico may be eligible for a work permit under the provisions of NAFTA. NAFTA applies to certain professionals meeting certain education and experience requirements. If you fit the criteria and have a job offer from a Canadian company, this may be a good option for you. You may even be able to apply for this work permit upon entry to Canada (at the airport or border crossing) with the right documentation in hand.

Expedited Labour Market Opinion (E-LMO) program    If your occupation falls within one of these categories, your employer may apply for an expedited labour market opinion. The regular labour market opinion process (not expedited) can take up to six months. The expedited process can be as quick as two weeks. The first step is for your employer to apply to become eligible for the program. These applications are made to a government department called Service Canada. Once they have offered you the position, they apply for the E-LMO. Service Canada then produces a document called the Labour Market Opinion which you then use to apply for the work permit itself.

BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)

If your long-term goal is to become a permanent resident of Canada, then this may be an option to investigate. Your employer must be willing to sponsor you for permanent resident status. They must make you a permanent job offer and must meet the criteria to be an eligible employer. Your occupation must be either in management, a skilled professional, or in the skilled trades. The process has multiple stages, including:

1.    BC PNP application (joint application between you and the employer) 2.    Application for a work permit (processing times will vary depending on your citizenship and whether or not you also need a visa to travel to Canada)
3.    Application for permanent residence. Step 1 will take six to eight weeks and after step 2, you may begin working in Canada. You can make the application for permanent residence after your arrival in Canada and, if all moves smoothly, become a permanent resident within the next year. Occupations under Pressure If your occupation is considered an occupation under pressure, the employer will need to prepare less documentation to prove they have been unable to find a Canadian or permanent resident to fill the position. The shortages in these occupations are documented and already known. The processing time for applications (called a Labour Market Opinion) under this program are still quite long — approximately six months. The application process may begin once you’ve been offered the position or possibly already be underway. Once approved, Service Canada produces a document called the Labour Market Opinion which you then use to apply for the work permit itself.  Also note that your credentials must be recognized by the relevant professional association or regulatory body, if applicable. There may be a registration process to ensure you can officially work in your profession.
The work permit application process in Ontario

To work anywhere in Canada, you need to get a social insurance number (SIN) from Human Resources and Social Development Canada.

You don’t need a work permit if you’re a permanent resident. You do need a temporary work permit if you’re staying and working just a short time or seasonally in Ontario.

In some situations, students are able to work while studying and after graduating.  If you plan on working temporarily in Ontario after you graduate, you will need a work permit.   

Obtain an Application for Work Permit

The work permit application process in Canada has grown longer (especially in BC and Alberta) but it is still a relatively transparent and easy to understand process. Understanding the basics will help you and your potential employer plan for the best option and hopefully get you here and working (happily) quickly.

Arranging a job before arrival to Canada

How to get pre-arranged employment in  Canada?

The role of your research is always being important if do correct research according to your desire then you always find correct. The second most important aspect that your curriculum vista and resume should be prepared affective that can be able to find something interesting for the employer and it should reached in correct hand. During searching job you would have enough information about the company that will help you in an interview.

The second best way to find a job in Canada  is through job search networking specially using the internet. Remember this: your ability to network to locate jobs is an important career skill to master. The internet  it is a great tool to be used in conjunction with other job search methods. There is still nothing like the old fashioned person to person networking. Creating a real life relationship is the best way to find a job.

FACTS

Don’t confused buying an AEO with arranged employment. Canadian High Commissions (CHC) is not stupid, in most cases dependen where you from they are refused.  Over 75% in ND and Hong Kong for AEO applicants.  Unlikely that you would get your money back if they promised you that.

In order to be considered for Arranged Employment, you must include the necessary documents (e.g., HRSDC confirmation) with your SW application at its time of submission. In other words, if you need the extra points (and/or the requirement for sufficient settlement funds to be waived), you must obtain and confirm an offer of indeterminant, full-time employment, within a Designated Occupation (for which your skills match), prior to considering a Skilled Worker application.

Now here´s the kicker – most Canadian employers will not consider hiring foreign nationals without status in Canada, as there are (typically) enough locals to fill the vacancies. However, if you have a unique skill set (particularly if you are in the IT industry), and/or a friend (or family member, friend of family member, etc) in a position to offer you arranged employment in Canada, then you may be one of the (very) lucky few who are able to make such arrangements.

More likely, this option of arranged employment is nothing more than a pipe dream, and you would be better off improving your score through some other means (e.g., improving your language skills, upgrading your education, etc), and/or increasing your net worth (please keep in mind that home equity, in many cases, can be considered when assessing one´s available settlement funds), rather than chasing this dream (sorry).

Best way to approach Canadian Companies For Jobs

 These days its not what you know but who you know.

First of all in order to approach Canadian companies for work , you need to follow protocol for each company. I don’t recommend any job seeker the HR Manager directly. It’s better STAFFING organization, not Human Resources. They should apply directly via the company’s preferred way of receiving applications or reach out to the appropriate recruiter at the company. If they do contact the HR Manager or anyone else at the company out of the blue they could be hurting their chances of getting hired. Also, the person(s) applying should read the job description VERY carefully to ensure they are actually qualified.then and only then you should try to find someone who will endorse you that is inside of the company. Have that person approach HR or hiring manager. If the company is progressive, they will give employee referred candidates preference.

The following are the most succcesful aproaches tips:

Step 1: Research your Target Companies  

Start off by compiling a list of preferred companies that you wish to work for, but before you start cold-calling blindly you need to ensure that you have properly researched these companies. Find out who the appropriate line manager is that is responsible for the department in which you wish to work and also find out who the HR Manager or Recruitment Manager is within the organisation and see if you are able to connect with them directly on professional networks such LinkedIn.      

Step 2: Find out if your Target Company is hiring Don’t start calling until you are sure that the company is currently hiring and not retrenching. It would be most embarrassing if you were to call a manager or recruiter for potential openings when they are in the process of downsizing.      

Here are some tips on how to find out if the company is hiring:  

•Type the company’s name in on Google ‘Company Hiring’ or ‘Company Careers’ (use synonyms for Careers such as Vacancies, Opportunities, Employment etc).

•Visit the company’s website directly to see if they have a careers page and are advertising any opportunities or inviting CV’s.

•Visit popular job boards such as  workopolis.com or monster.com  and go to the ‘Who’s Hiring’ or companies directory page to see if the company is advertising on job sites.

•Look for the company’s overview or careers page on LinkedIn and see if they are promoting careers.

 •Search on YouTube or across the internet in general to see if the company has a recruitment video with instructions on how to send your CV.  

•Network with people within the company and ask them if they are aware of any openings. You can connect with people via niche industry portals or on social and professional networks.  

•See if the company has a FaceBook page which you can join so that you can be kept up to date on any hiring campaigns.      

Step 3: 

Get your CV in . The most obvious approach  to apply to job openings that you might have discovered and that meet your skills and expertise.  

Here are some suggestions on submitting your application:

•Be sure that you follow the company’s instructions for receiving applications exactly as they might reject your CV if it has come via an unspecified channel.

•Include a well thought-through cover note.  •Address the cover letter to the specific person (if possible).  

•Keep your CV to a minimum. You can inform them on your CV summary that you have a more comprehensive CV available should they require it. Be sure to highlight key skills and achievements as they relate specifically to the job you are applying to.  

•If the job advert asks for specific requirements to be met or to be included in either the cover note or CV, be sure to follow these instructions carefully.  

•Mention your availability for interviews as well as your availability to take up employment should you be successful.  •Take care to ensure that your CV is free from errors before submitting it.      

If you know of someone that is currently working for the company, contact them and ask them if they could endorse or recommend you. If you are connected to employees of the company through via a professional platform such as LinkedIn, you could ask them to refer you to the hiring manager.  

You may also want to consider contacting a recruitment agency that specialises in your industry and ask them to represent you by marketing your CV to the company that you want to work for.

For the detail in the description of each occupation and its various titles and offices, should consult the official website of the National Occupational Classification NOC.   The Canadian government uses the National Occupational Classification system called (National Occupational Classification NOC). This system categorizes occupations in demand in the Canadian job market based on the following criteria:  

• “O” in management occupations, positions in the management, coordination and supervision.  

• Proficiency Level “A”: occupations that usually require college education.  

• Proficiency “B” occupations that require technical education (college) or specialized learning.

 • Proficiency “C” occupations that require secondary education (high school) or specific training.

 • Proficiency “D” occupations where training is given directly in the work.   National Occupational Classification:

The following is a condensed version of the major professions, specialties and professions that require the Canadian labor market, on the basis of the “National Occupational Classification.” Professions are included only in the categories “O”, “A” and “B”, as these take into account the Canadian point system that evaluates the capabilities of potential immigrants.   The general areas of competence of this classification are:  

• Business, Finance and Administration  

• Natural and applied sciences and related occupations

 • Health  • Social Sciences, Education, Government Service and Religion  

• Arts, Culture, Recreation and Sport  

• Trade, Transport, Equipment Operation, and related professions  

• Raw Materials Industry  

• Processing, Manufacturing and Utilities   Computer professionals and highly skilled Systems  During 1997, established a pilot program that enables Canadian employers, attract highly qualified professionals in the technical areas of Computing and Systems (software). This approach facilitates the recruitment of these staff on a temporary basis, without the necessary validation of a Human Resource Center.   This plan responds to the shortage of workers exists in Canada in these specialties and the prevailing demand industries quickly get highly qualified professionals and computer technicians.  Graduates in branches of Engineering, Information Systems or other technology-related areas are encouraged to perform a formal validation of Canadian institutions that apply.  

Nursing:  Nursing is a profession with the highest occupational demand in Canada. The public health system needs to attract as many technical and health professionals. Therefore, the government makes great efforts for recruitment. It is expected that by 2011 and through 2012. The national deficit of nurses in Canada amount to 80 thousand professionals. This is a great opportunity for foreign workers who have experience in the area.  

Care Workers and Health Care at Home (“Caregivers”)

There is special interest in working in Canadian homes remain full-time care of children, disabled people and, especially, the elderly. Over 4 million people in Canada are over 65. In fact, 1 in 7 Canadians is part of the so-called third age.

Professionals in the field of health and health care are scarce in Canada, which opens up to foreign employment opportunities in this field.   To gain approval, you must also demonstrate that you have enough money to support. There are many other options to immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker. If you do not meet the criteria required by the Federal Government, we invite you to read our other sections on the various provincial programs and  A complement MI – 4 has made permissible for global PhD students to put on for enduring habitation in FSWP, however missing the further features of the unaffected FSWP.   It stood experiential that certain works fulfill additional nippily than others.

This shows that the applicants to these occupations could no longer rub in further down the FSWP, till the CAP is re-established in July 2012.   Though, the 25 additional occupations are exposed now. Certain of them such as GPs and dentists are probable to be the next, with 350 requests previously putative by the CIC. Applicants for these occupations must act rapidly to safe a location in the lot of pay for this time.
