Trabajo para extranjeros en Canada

No es fácil encontrar un trabajo ‘normal’ como extranjero en  Canada, pero hay algunos trabajos que te permiten financiar tu estadía en Canada.

Au pairing
Un ‘au pair’ es contratado para cuidar niños. El trato que ofrecen es alojamiento gratis, comida y una pequeña ayuda económica por ayudar con los niños y en ocasiones otras labores del hogar. La ventaja de este empleo es que practicas mucho el idioma, ya que estas en contacto diario con este.

Normalmente, no es requerido ningún tipo de aptitud especial y por lo mismo un au pair no debe ser estar al cuidado de niños menores a dos años. Las familias que aceptan un chico son raras, las experiencias con niños son sujetas a emisión de visa, ciudadanos de la UE y USA regularmente tienen ventaja. El servicio dura un mínimo de 2 meses y máximo de 3 años.

Requisitos y responsabilidades típicos

•conocimiento básico del idioma para comunicación con los niños desde el principio
•levantar y llevar a los niños para la escuela
•jugar con los niños
•preparar y darles sus alimentos
•limpiar sus cuartos y áreas de juego
•cuidado de ellos en las noches cuando salen los padres
Responsabilidades comunes de las familias

•dar un máximo de 25 – 35 horas de trabajo por semana
•dos días libres por semana
•no tratar al au pair como un sirviente doméstico no pagado
•dar su propia habitación
•pagar semalmente (unos CDN90)
•registrar al au pair con el doctor de la familia
•registrar al au pair en seguro de la casa
Las siguientes organizaciones relacionan au pairs con familias – estas suelen cobrar una cuota de registro a la familia y/o al au pair:

•IAPA (Asociación Internacional de Au Pair): www.iapa.org 
•IAPO (Organización Internacional de Au Pair):
www.au-pair.org 
•Au Pair info in Canada: Au Pair Canada

 Enseñanza de idioma extranjero
La enseñanza de tu idioma como idioma extranjero es un área donde puedes tener una ventaja en mercado laboral.  Frances , Español y Chino son idiomas con demanda alta. Conseguir empleo en el sistema de educación pública en Canada sule ser muy difícil, ya que solitan algunos requisitos( licencia y acreditacion) y el proceso de selección es competido (generalmente le ofrecen las vacantes a los canadienses).

Sin embargo, existen algunas escuelas de idiomas y agencias de prácticas que dan empleo a extranjeros. Algunos ni siquiera piden requisitos (como el TOEFL para el Inglés o Frances), pero depende de la institución. La poseer un certificado o título te da una ventaja. No hay requisitos para clases privadas.

La enseñanza de idiomas no es la mejor pagada con salarios muy variables. Clases privadas por sesión pagan unos $15-20/por hora, pero tienes que contemplar administración de estudiantes, agenda y viajes. Chequea en las escuelas de idiomas y universidades las oportunidades para dar clases o echa un vistazo en workopolis.com.

Trabajos temporales en la agricultura
Se estima que más de 35,000 extranjeros vienen a Canada cada año para ayudar en la temporada de trabajo intensivo como es la cosecha. La temporada de la frutas (manzanas, fresas, etc)  es de 4 a 5 semanas en Sepiembre/Octubre (dependiendo en tiempo y región), otras temparadas de frutas son de Abril hasta principios de Noviembre. Okanagan Valley  es muy famoso.

Es relativamente fácil obtener un permiso para realizar estos trabajos legalmente. El trabajo es duro y la paga es poca. Mucha gente regresa año tras año a los mismos lugares, así que puede difícil obtener un trabajo.

Industria turística
Hay muchas oportunidades en el sector turístico durante verano. Encontrar trabajo en Agosto, epecialmente en Vancouver, Montreal  y otros sitios llenos de turistas,suele ser fácil, ya también los Canadienses se van vacaciones. Los servicios más comunes para empleo son hoteles, restaurantes y otros sitios de comidas.

Dependiendo de la experiencia y aptitudes, los trabajos son: limpieza, mesero, cocinero, cajero y recepcionista. Los fáciles para encontrar empleo son las cadenas de comida rápida como McDonald’s, Subway, etc, ya que suelen estar siempre contratando personal. Las habilidades con el idioma te pueden ayudar en este país, dandote una ventaja competitiva sobre los Canadienses. En invierno, las oportunidades de trabajo se concentran en los centros de ski en Whistler y Vancouver Island and Victoria.

Prácticas estudiantiles
Las prácticas estudiantiles (Essays) o prácticas asignadas no son consideradas legalmente como trabajos, así que un permiso de trabajo (WTP) no es requerido. Mantienes tu estado de estudiante durante las prácticas profesionales. Un acuerdo de prácticas (internship) entre tu institución académica, la compañía y tu debe ser completada. En este se definen lo que estarás haciendo, horas de trabajo, condiciones así como cualquier remuneración.

Recession Proof Jobs and Careers in Canada

Hundreds of jobs are disappearing daily in many countries. In some industries people manage to keep their jobs during recessions and financial crises. What are the recession-proof jobs in Canada?

To keep a job during an economic recession, it helps to have a recession-proof career. Are there any industries, where jobs will be stable throughout the current global financial crisis?  Here I post a basic  list of  best recession proof  jobs, careerss and industries.

Recession Proof Jobs

Sales & Marketing representatives top the list–and, unlike other professions, not because there’s a shortage. Rather, in tough economic times, a good sales force is a critical way to pull a company out of a downturn.

Network administrators: they are responsible for the design and management of the physical and technical structure of company’s communication tools–such as shared files, e-mail, teleconferencing and company Web sites. Demand is particularly high in emerging markets like India, China and the Middle East, which are these creating networks for the first time.

IT and computer Jobs.  Jobs in this field would continue to be in demand even during financial crisis. The IT services still need to function efficiently with or without a recession.

Food related-jobs. People regardless of their status in life need to eat. Cheaper restaurants and take out counters obviously would need to staff up more employees to meet the demand.

Healthcare/ Medical-Related Jobs. During recession, the need for skilled nurses, doctors, caregivers, medical assistants, doctors, psychologists, psychoanalysts, home health aides, dentists, health service administrators/managers, would most likely be more in demand.
Recession Proof Careers

Medical-Related Careers.   Medical professionals are always in demand. For example, nurses, physical therapists, dentists, physicians, health services administrators/managers and other medical professionals such as pharmacists are always needed because there are always individuals who become ill and need medical care. Medical professionals typically work in schools, medical offices, community healthcare centers, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and hospitals.

Education Careers

Education is another stable career area due to the fact that there will always be children, adolescents, and adults who need to attend school. On the college level and graduate school level, there is a need for professors and administrators because there are always students attending college in order to get a college education.In addition, there is a need for individuals such as Private Tutors and Enrichment Program Instructors or Facilitators for specialized areas including languages.

Computer Careers
Computer science can be a good career area to pursue. Whether the career interest is in being a computer systems analyst, network systems and data communication analyst, software design, web master, web developer, Web Programmer, Information architecture or a network and computer systems administrator, if one is flexible geographically, that helps because businesses always have a need for competent computeror system analyst workers

Accounting Careers and Finantial Careers

Bookkeepig and Accounting can be a stable profession in times of recession due to the fact that even if the economic conditions worsen, people still have to pay taxes. As part of the process of paying taxes, people often need tax advice and tax preparation help. Accountants specialize in giving tax advice and tax preparation help. Thus, accountants work no matter what the economic circumstances are for individuals, corporate, for profit and for the non profit sector.
Recession Proof Industries
Security – No matter how bad the financial crisis gets, the need for security shall not decrease. Jobs like firemen, police, law enforcement officers, customs and security services, forensics, and shop security personnel may even need more skilled personnel during the recession.

Healthcare – As mention above the need for skilled nurses, doctors, psychologists and psychotherapists, analysts, caregivers, medical assistants, physical therapists, home health aides, medical records staff and health information technicians will hardly decrease and may even grow during the recession.

Education – The need for trained teachers and some other skilled people instructors or facilitators is the core processes of the education industry. In highly populated growth areas remain this constant during recessions and will probably remain so now.

Personal Care – Barbers, hairdressers, beauticians and cosmetologists also could keep their jobs. Businesses in the upmarket range might lose customers but those who cater to downmarket needs will probably survive.

Legal Professions – Skilled professionals in the claims and compensation sectors, or those dealing with bankruptcies, and contractual disputes usually see more work during recessions.

Food Industry – People can’t give up eating even during a recession. Cheaper take-aways and eateries would need more staff ready to work at lower pay to function than luxury restaurants, which may not have enough customers.

House and Car Repairs – Skilled house repair servicemen like plumbers or electricians in densely populated areas didn’t lose their jobs during previous recessions. Though not many new houses are being built, emergency repairs are vital. We might drive older cars, but they need to be serviced and repaired. Cleaners will still be needed so executive or average housekeepers will much needed.

Environmental Sector – The demand for skilled professionals in environmental health and protection has been constant and is not likely to diminish during the recession.

Sales and Marketing – Business need to market more aggressively in hard times. Skilled marketing and salespeople working on commission pay basis would keep their jobs even during the recession days.

IT and computing Services – IT services need to function always. Skilled people working to provide Web design, internet-based, computer and IT-related services in core business functions would still be in high demand throughout the recession and more during the next upswing.

While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me. If you’re interested in learning more about this option, please check out Start Your Own Successful Online Business   for details.

What type of positions are being recruited in Canada?

In Canada, the projection of employment demand for occupations is undertaken through the Canadian Occupational Projection System (COPS). This information system is designed to provide historical, current and projected data both nationally and provincially. The focus of COPS is on long-term occupational needs and supply trends. The model provides the most comprehensive source of forward-looking employment demand data by occupation and by industry for B.C.

This model is maintained by Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC), in close consultation with partners in provincial governments and Service Canada regions.  The B.C. Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development is the COPS provincial partner in B.C., and prepares the COPS BC Unique Scenario with their federal counterparts from Service Canada.

So positions on skilled trades, pharmacist, finance, dental hygienist and others below are the ones being recruited in Canada.
 

  •  Healthcare information technology. Technicians are needed for such emerging jobs as healthcare integration engineer, healthcare systems analyst, clinical IT consultant, and technology support specialist.
  •  Clinical Trials Design and Management for Oncology. Biopharmaceutical drug companies have more than doubled investment in research and development in the past decade. Managing clinical trials include choosing appropriate dosages, designing treatment plans and recruiting patients.
  •  Allied Health – Medical Technicians, Technologists and Assistants:
    Many allied health careers are well-paid, and in high demand. Therefore, if you have an associate’s degree, or a four-year college degree, you can choose from a wide variety of nearly 100 allied health careers
  • Medical Office Administrative and Support Jobs such as:
  • Medical transcriptionists
  • Home Health and Hospice Care:
  • Home health, including in-home hospice care and home health aides for the elderly and disabled, are set to experience a whopping 50+% growth!
  • Registered nurse
    Canada’s aging population means this sector’s a dynamic place to be. A combination of factors will ensure a wealth of opportunity for nurses with college or university nursing degrees.
  • Geriatric healthcare. Hey, everybody is getting older which means there are more opportunities for jobs for pharmacists, geriatric care managers, geriatric nurses and managing facilities for seniors.
  • Computer and information systems managers
    The 2001 slowdown in the computer industry didn’t put a dent in this field. Wage growth is still better than average, as are actual wages (almost double the national average), while the unemployment rate is well below the national average.
  • Mobile media. Graphic designers, videographers, video editors, app developers and software engineers are needed to design and provide all the stuff that we now cram in our cell phones.
  • Embedded engineering. There are career options for software developers willing to learn some new tricks. Phones, appliances, televisions, automobiles and iPods all use processors to run. These complex digital processors are embedded systems, often built around a microprocessor core, that are designed by software engineers.
  • Data mining. Data mining is the technique for extracting specific types of information or patterns from large databases.
  • Human resource specialist or manager
    Demand for human resources specialists and managers is increasing and expected to stay strong, as companies place greater emphasis than ever before on human resources issues such as recruitment, training, employee relations and retention.
  • Occupational health and safety. More specialists are needed to cope with technological advances in safety equipment, changing regulations and increasing public expectations.
  • French/English translation and interpretation.
    Canada is officially a bilingual country but, with nearly 60% of the population speaking English as their mother-tongue, and only 24% speaking French as their first language. There are 77 million first language speakers and another 51 million second language speakers, according to the Ethnologue Report. (1) French is the second most commonly-taught second language in the world (after English).The 2001 Census total of francophones, those who report their mother tongue as French, was 6.8 million, or 22.9 percent of the population, down from 23.5 percent in 1996. The strongest demand for French speakers is in the health care, business and legal fields.
  • Content Writing/ Copyeditors/ paid blogging gigs/  freelancers focusing on business, travel and environmental subjects. Feature writing on the web. Is this where all those journalist for print media or newspaper reporters who have lost their jobs will end up.
  • Sustainable business practices and greening of all jobs. Green collar jobs can be found in every profession – even those you wouldn’t suspect. For instance, accountants are needed who understand what carbon accounting is.

What Kind of Jobs Exist in Canada?

Tips for Finding Employers & Networks for International Workers.

Often it is wondered what jobs can skilled foreign workers obtained overseas and how can they go about finding those employers here?

Aside from the medical or health field  , it seems, skilled people in Canada might find better opportunity in inner provinces not only Ontario.
 

But in what fields?

There is a constant need for speaking and teaching French as a second language; charity work, and in construction, petrochemical plants, power plants, and in the oil and gas industry.
 

 

Construction, Power Plants, Oil And Gas, Petrochemical All Pay Big Salaries

Those workers from subsidiary of Orascom Construction Inc., OCI, built the tallest structure in the world, Burj Dubai, and Consolidated Construction International Companies, CCIC, built the largest mall in the world, Dubai Mall. Together, the two firms joint ventured to build what then was the largest mall/living complex in the world in Cairo, Egypt, they all have connections in Calgary  and Alberta  Canadian provinces where the oil industry is well established.

Those workers from Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht and noted airport construction and maintenance power house TAV, based in Turkey, CCIC has been engaged in new airports construction in Libya and Oman and USA, now Canada is new hub. Each of these international companies are building a strong base of operations in North Africa and are present in the Arabian Gulf, all of them have built ties with Canadian oil firms.

Odebrecht, it should be noted, has a strong presence in Latin America, and in the USA cities of Miami, Florida and New Orleans, LA. In Canada too, check   http://www.linkedin.com/jobs/at-Odebrecht
Still, these organizations, and many others, continue searching for engineers to assist them throughout the Arabian Gulf, Egypt, Libya, Algeria and other regions. Engineers from Western Europe, North America (USA, Canada with natural gas resources) , South Africa and Australia continue to be recruited by OCI and CCIC to insure they are better able to meet the increasingly complex specifications associated with ISO Specifications.

Foreign trained professionals hopefuls will join and become active members in trade organizations associated with their occupational skills. A short Canadian  list for construction or oil and gas employment:

•Canadian Concrete Institute
•Canadian Society of Mechanical Engineers
•Canadian Society of Nondestructive Testing
•Canadian Society of Safety Engineers
• Canadian Welding Society
• Canadian Society of Military Engineers (a favorite among Canadian Army Corps of Engineers)

New Immigrant Job Hunting: Canada

Looking for a  job? Use these tips and put your best foot forward. 

(1) If  you can’t get a job take a Canadian Employment Skills Program (CES) or   register in a career college or university with co-op program . Education can lead to Work Visa and Permanent residency too. You can gain valuable insight into Canadian workplace culture and practices, obtained a Canadian reference and networked contacts in the professional field and an Education can leading to Work Visa and Permanent residency.

Canada posses educational Excellence, High Rate of Employment and Good Income Potential with Excellent Work Environment that attracts the top students from across the globe. Outstanding academic standing and resources of the Universities in Canada , so make sure that you get the most from your experience in an Canadian education institute. We help students get study visa in Canada.

(2) Check for you own degree or occupation, are you  in the list of 38-Priority Occupation List of Canada?

(3) Match your skills with employers using  the Ontario Pilot Pilot Provincial Nominee Program.
What is a Pilot Provincial Nominee Program or PNP?   The Pilot PNP gives Ontario the ability to match immigrants’ skills to Ontario employers’ and labour market needs. It allows Ontario to nominate people for permanent resident status, and have their application fast-tracked by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). CIC will still perform important functions such as security checks on applicants. It’s a different route and process than for immigrants applying directly to the federal government.

What is Ontario’s Pilot PNP?

Ontario’s Pilot Provincial Nominee Program is employer-driven and has two categories: an Employer Category to help employers fill labour shortages in 20 specific occupations in the health, education, manufacturing and construction sectors; and a Multinational Investor Category for companies making significant investments in the province to bring in key employees who will contribute to the long-term success of the investment.

The Pilot PNP is applicable to the following areas: City of Toronto, Durham, Halton, York and Peel regions.

International Students

It is now easier for international students in Canada to transition to permanent resident status in Ontario.

International students will no longer be restricted to the Pilot PNP Occupation List, although their job offer has to be in a managerial, professional or skilled trades occupation (NOCs 0, A and B). Eligible students may have graduated within the past two years or be enrolled in their last semester in a publicly funded Canadian college or university. They must have completed at least half of their studies in Canada. This change helps Ontario attract and retain the best and brightest international students by providing a quick avenue to permanent status for gainfully-employed graduates.

Employers

It is now easier for regional employers outside of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to qualify and take advantage of the program.

Employers outside of the GTA will now require minimum gross revenues of $500,000 in the previous fiscal year and a staff of at least three permanent full-time employees to qualify for the program. Employers outside of the GTA can now request one position for every three full-time employees. The change is designed to better reflect the needs of regional employers and the scale of many regional economies outside the GTA.

How can we help?

We have experience as full-service career transition firm, providing job search coaching (resume design, interview preparation, career transition) to individuals within Canada, the US and International.My corporate background is fairly wide and includes a stint with the United Nations and YMCA in New York. Why is this important? There I learned what a formal classroom could not offer…an opportunity to meet, understand and work with people from a variety of cultures. I am a not only an Ontario entreprenuer award winner but a  former volunteer instructor in the  Self Employment & Business programs  at Microskills Centre   where I taught Webfolio and at MoM Centre other courses.
