Arranging a job before arrival to Canada

How to get pre-arranged employment in  Canada?

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).

Speaking of Clergy Jobs

Clergy jobs offers one of the widest varieties of occupational choices due to the fact that so many organizations and religious/spiritual groups employ members of the clergy in addition to numerous denominations that incorporate the clergy.
Members of the clergy are expected to uphold the beliefs and tenants of the religion they have chose and are additionally expected to live a moral and blameless life. This in and of itself can be very stressful.

The working hours for members of the clergy are seldom regular and many times include late night and weekend work as well as holidays. Most full time clergy find that they often work in excess of 60 hours per week preparing sermons and talking with members of their congregation.

The job duties of the clergy may also include:

•Family counseling
•Marital counseling
•Visiting the sick & elderly

It is important to recognize that some faiths have very strict restrictions regarding who may become a member of the clergy. Despite our modern age, many faiths still do not allow women to enter the clergy.

 
Employment Prospects for Clergy Jobs
There are numerous employment opportunities for members of the clergy; although some will face more competition than others. At the current time, the trend is toward large urban spiritual centers and it is anticipated that this will be the site for the most growth as well as the most competition. Besides various spiritual and worship centers, churches and temples individuals may find employment as members of the clergy with branches of the armed services serving as chaplains.
Seminaries and universities also employ members of the clergy to serve in both administrative and instructional capacities.  Each of the major and minor religions provide opportunity to enter the clergy; however some groups have significantly more opportunity than others. The Christian religion only has more than 70 different denominations! but there plenty of opportunities in  the Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim religions too .

Job Search for Clergy Jobs
Opportunities in the clergy field can be located in a number of different ways.

In some cases, a congregation or a committee representing the congregation will issue an open call for a pastor or clergy member. If an individual is attending seminary or some other university devoted to training for the clergy then they may check with senior professors to learn about opportunities.

Each religion, and denomination within that religion, generally has very specific entrance requirements for entering the field. The best advice for a person considering this as a clergy vocation  is to chat with a member of their own clergy regarding requirements.

Work in Canada:intra-company transfers

Canada allows for the transfer of certain employees (executives, senior managers and specialized knowledge workers) to the Canadian branch, subsidiary or affiliate of an international company, without the involvement of HRSDC.  In an intra-company transfer, a company transfers an employee to work temporarily in a different office, often in another country.

An Intra-Company Transfer work permit or procedure (ICT or ICP) is applicable for the transfer of key staff into a Canadian subsidiary company. Staff involved in an intra-company transfer must have been employed by their overseas company for at least one year prior to an intra-company transfer application being made. Furthermore the links with the overseas company must be evidenced and it is necessary to provide evidence that the Intra-Company Transfer assignee possesses the relevant company knowledge, experience and necessary qualifications in order for a transfer to the position to be fulfilled.
The details of your qualifications and of the nature of the job offer would determine the available avenues for employment authorization at the Canadian division of your company.

However, there are varying provisions which can allow you to transfer to a Canadian affiliate or subsidiary of your foreign employer. Although specific provisions for Intra-Company Transferees exists under NAFTA, GATS, and Significant Benefit to Canada, there are also additional provisions specific to your occupation which could prove to be preferable.

Each of the above provisions have differing individual requirements.

How to get a Canadian offer letter with excellent salary?

Evaluating Canadian job offers can be unsettling, especially if you have only a vague idea of what you want from employers. You’ll have to do a personal-needs assessment before you can judge whether an offer is right for you. Here’s a three-step process for developing your own job-offer-evaluation checklist.

  • Research Canadian jobs, places, industries and culture and apply to all related jobs.
  • Search companies websites about specific jobs openings.
  • Get a Canadian visa.
  • Arrange for telephone interviews or at least a dialogue with a Canadian consultants and companies.
  • Prepared yourself extensively for interview in the chosen field or chosen market.
  • Request that the job offer be outlined in writing. Until you have the offer in writing, you have nothing. A verbal offer can be withdrawn-it happens all the time. Furthermore, having the offer in writing ensures that there will be questions later on about what was initially agreed upon. The offer letter normally consists of the following items:
  • 1.Job title
    2.Base salary
    3.Incentive compensation (if any)
    4.Agreements as to salary and/or performance reviews
    5.Starting date
     

Coming to Canada with a job in place or go independent or choose a franchise as immigrant entreprenuer  will make a huge difference for any immigrant.

International Professionals in Canada: find a temporary job

Do you want to work on a temporary basis in Canada? There are many temporary positions available in various sectors. Companies usually hire out specific small-term projects as temporary positions.  Agency-placed temporary jobs are a growing haven for laid-off professionals and those in skilled trades. 

And with companies cutting millions of full-time jobs this year, staffing industry experts say they’re fielding more and more applications from local and national and international  seasoned workers . Researching companies  is a great way to find temporary jobs in Canada. Here’s tips for finding and keeping the bests Canadian temporary jobs.

1. Target the right firms . Start with a detailed list of companies in the field you are interested and province, check   Canada Employer’s database for Int’l Prfessionals. 

2.  Register with multiple staffing  agencies. Start with a detailed list of companies and staffing firms in your area, check the Canadian Staffing Association’s directory.  It’s not taboo to be working with several placement firms. “It’s understood that (it) happens. Like applying for any job, you circulate your credentials and hope for an assignment.   Many services operate Web sites with helpful career information and links to other resources in addition to online application materials and job postings. Here’s a couple of national and international staffing companies and their main specialties:

Accountemps
Locations: 360 worldwide
Specialties: financial, accounting, credit and collections
Web site:
www.accountemps.com

Aerotek
Locations: 150 worldwide
Specialties: engineering, aviation, scientific and architecture
Web site:

Kelly Services
Locations: 2,000 nationwide

Web site:
www.kellyservices.com

Manpower
Locations: 4,200 worldwide
Specialties: professional services, technical, finance, engineering and administrative
Web site:
www.manpower.com 

 3. Tweak your resume:  Write an Accomplishments-Based Resume. employers  want to know of specific skill sets, the details on projects you’ve manage with success.

4. Be clear and firm about your salary expectations.

5. Ever been told you’re underqualified? Or overqualified? here is the best approach:

Underqualified: in a persuavie way say: “I’m very interested in working for you and your company, and I’ll keep my eye on the website. Remember candidates should indicate that they will address whatever shortcomings they’re told about, she says. They have two choices: either come up with specifics that show the gap actually isn’t there, or propose a plan that would fill any gaps.

The overqualified should avoid telling the interviewer how the company should be run or let an overinflated self-image show. “I want to hear they’re very collaborative and not independent, and that it’s a team approach.” It’s important to “show your passion is for the work, not for being a director or leader.” Candidates should avoid arguin or  explanations like: “I just need a job for now”. Interviewers are looking for people willing to grow with the company, and such answers don’t show a long-term interest in the company or the position.

Overqualified: The best tactic: Agree that “you may be right” but add on “for this job.” The idea is for the candidate to position himself or herself as someone the organization can look to as it grows and needs more experienced people. “What you’re doing is trying to position yourself not just a s a solution for today but for tomorrow.  There’s also absolutely nothing wrong, he adds, with saying you’d be content to take a position that’s seen as below your qualifications. “The world needs movers and shakers but it also needs doers.” If true, a candidate may state clearly that he or she is not interested in moving up in an organization but “they’d be happy to mentor more junior people.”

 6. Once you’re on the job, don’t coast. Temporary jobs are more than a paycheck. They’re a foot in the door to a prospective full-time employer, a networking opportunity and a chance to learn new skills in a new business sector.
7. Take advantage of training. While agency clients expect a basic skill set from their temps, such as meeting work schedules and deadlines and taking instructions from supervisors, most offer some sort of training. You might get a chance to learn a new database, the latest accounting software or how to operate state-of-the-art machinery.

8. Take advantage of temp packages: (medical benefits, paid vacation, RSSP, savings plans, workers’ compensation coverage and other benefits.

9.  Identify and research the companies in your chosen sector.   Once you have decided which industry niche can offer you the career path you are looking for, spend time  researching specific  companies. If possible, find ways to meet and get an interview with individuals (human resource, hiring managers, etc )  from these companies. Interviews always seem to take the format of the employer asking the majority of the questions: this does not have to be the case. I recommend you to prepare at least ten questions before a meeting, and make sure that they are very relevant to the vacancy and your future. Some of your key questions should focus on the internal processes for progression; for example:
■What methods do you use to encourage internal promotions?
■What percentage of staff members have been promoted in the last 12 months?
■Do you have a career development programme in place?
■How does it work?
■How often do appraisals take place?
■How is the information used?
■What is the annual training budget per person

10. Never make a career choice based on money. I know this may sound crazy but choosing your first job or changing your job for money usually only offers short-term benefit.

11. Always try to achieve a sensible work-life balance:  I’d be inclined to look for a new position in a company that recognises the considerable benefits of a healthy balance between work and your life away from work.

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.
