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.

Bridging Programs for Immigrants

Recognizing that newcomers with international credentials may need to upgrade their training to the Canadian context, several universities, colleges and not-for-profit organizations in Canada have developed “bridging programs.” These are designed specifically for foreign-trained professionals to bridge or adapt their skills from their country of origin to Canada, for both licensed and unlicensed professions.

Such programs enable immigrants to transition more quickly into the Canadian labour market by providing training that addresses specific needs and facilitates the recognition of foreign credentials. Without such programs, many immigrants would have to face complete reschooling, which is costly and time-consuming.
Such programs may provide you with the following:

1. An assessment of your education and skills
2. Hands-on workplace experience
3. Skills training or upgrading
4. Preparation for a certification examination
5. Specialized language training for your industry
Generally, you have to pay a fee for these programs, as they are not part of the free basic ESL and job search programs available through immigrant settlement agencies.
Finding a bridging program

To find a bridging program, you’ll have to do a little digging online and through word of mouth. There is not one centralized location that lists all bridging programs in Canada.
If you’re in Ontario, the Ontario government immigration website is a good place to start (see http://www.ontarioimmigration.ca/en/working/OI_BRIDGE.html).

In other parts of the country, the list of bridging programs may not be as well organized, and you might have to search individual colleges and universities to see what they have to offer.

Interns and Co-op Job Opportunities in Canada

 Are the following making your look employable?: your resume? your letter-writing? your interviewing? your interpersonal skills? your handshake? Are you focusing with employers on what you have to offer them? (Or what you want for yourself?)

Canadian Interns and co-op job opportunities

Co-ops and Internships. Work-travel Students ready for a hands-on introduction to different fields and industries: click the link that’s right for you!

Co-ops are usually, but not always, multi-term; e.g. you might work fall semester, go to school in spring semester, work summer, go to school in fall, and work the next spring semester. Schedules vary depending on when you need to be in school and when the employer needs you to work.

Internships are usually, but not always, one term.
Internships are usually, but not always, in summer.

Internships can be either; depends on employers’ needs and the way each employer chooses to structure an intern program. Some internship programs are very formal and structured, while others offer more flexibility to negotiate terms. Co-ops are always full-time positions.

You will find the majority of internships offered in summer, but some employers offer internships year ’round, including fall semester or spring semester terms. Some employers (such as tax preparers or political campaigns) may have a busy season during the year when they employ interns — and therefore offer non-summer internships.

You can search for a job in a particular location, but you are advised to look at all opportunities. You should be aware of the job market for your skills and take that into consideration — some career fields offer more opportunity and you may be able to be more selective about location. Other career fields are more competitive and you may need to go where the employers have needs. Some employers may assist with relocation and living expenses.

Research Canadian Companies

Knowledge is power. Before going on an interview is the time to do  research. All the big companies know that and pour lots of money into research to gain the knowledge they need to be competitive.

When you begin to make initial contacts with potential employers, through resumes or any other method you use, it is a good idea to have some basic facts about the companies  you are interested in.

Knowing your potential employer will help you target your “presentation” to them.  By visiting the company’s Web site, you will collect important information about its products, recent changes, competitors and clients. Here are some guidelines on how to research a company online before your job interview.

Looking through their data can help you the following company information including:

Company name
Address and contact information
Its industry sector
A description of their products or services, main markets and customers
Innovations, technology used, special projects
Annual report
Financial statements
 

How does this help you?

 

You learn about companies in your profession, sector and city.
You find people to network with.
You decide which companies to approach for a job.
You learn about a company you are applying to.
You prepare for a job interview or information interview.

 

Summing up, the chances of accessing more of the Canadian  labor platform, takes time and it depend exclusively in the professional conditions that you have achieved until now. The best possible advice would be for you to gather up pertinent information regarding the job market of the Canadian city you wish to move to.

How to apply in Canada as an independent professional immigrant

Who can apply as an independent professinal immigrant?  

Anyone in the world outside Canada can apply for permanent residence as an independent applicant. If you are a visitor in Canada and decide that you want to live in Canada, you will be required to apply for permanent residence from abroad or your country of origin.  

What are the advantages of going to Canada as an independent immigrant?   

As soon as you arrive in Canada, you are given the status of a permanent resident. You can live, study and work in Canada permanently. You will also enjoy the benefits from all social programs available to any Canadian citizen. You can work with any employer or get any job. 

After 3 years of permanently residing in Canada, you can now apply to become a Canadian Citizen!  Note that Canada also allows dual citizenship and does not require their citizens to renounce their other citizenships. So when you become a Canadian citizen, you can still maintain the other citizenships that you got from other countries.

 What is the difference between Canadian Permanent Visa and a USA Immigration H1B Visa?

The US immigration system selects skilled workers with a right to work in the United States. But, the US immigration system does not easily approve permanent residency status. Many of these skilled workers on an H1B status can be sent back to their home country if their Green Card is not approved before the 6-year limit on H1s expires. Then after obtaining your green card, you may have to wait  for years before you can get the  US citizenship. 
under the the Canadian Skilled Class Immigration system, skilled workers once approved,  you are automatically given the permanent residency status. This entitles you to change employers, relocate, and sponsor family members to emigrate which is not available under the US H1B visa. Even if you lose your job, you can still remain in Canada and enjoy most of the rights and privileges accorded to a Canadian citizen.
Advantages for professional immigrants in Canada

Work years and academic capacities are not forgotten in Canada. This is mainly because Canada does not only need people for manufactured jobs, but it is also looking for people that are trained in different knowledge areas.
 
 
 I am a professional. What does Canada has to offer me? Advantages for professional immigrants.

The Canadian federal government has performed some projections, which imply that in a period of time, of less than 15 years, there will be a really high professional demand in their national territory, and this deficit will not be covered by Canadians by themselves.

This is why, knowing this situation, there are better opportunities to access a permanent residency visa, for those appliers that already have a profession; and specially, for those professions that are considered a priority by the Canadian federal government, or by it high demand on Canada’s work market.

 
 
 Some areas that are considered as a priority are health, informatics technology, and teaching. Because, the category that the immigrant will receive for working in any of those areas, is the independent immigrant rank.

 
The programs Skilled Worker Immigration, is a special program for professional workers that are looking for the permanent residency. Among other requirements to reach the minimum score you need in their evaluation system, you have to accomplish the following items:

– English or French domain (both official languages in Canada), accreditation of the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) certificate for English and the TEF (Test d’Evaluation de Francais) for French.
– Ages between 21 and 49 years old.
– Educational level: certification of higher education
– Previous work experience (at least one year of experience)
– Show quick adaptation to new environments capacity (conjugal situation, the existence of a work offer in Canada)
– Existence of working precedents in Canada (if the applier has obtained a previous temporary work permission)

 
 
It is also valid to write down that the applier must show that he can improve in some way the Canadian economy. There are some demands regarding the fulfillment of some health conditions and criminal records (not having any criminal record at all).

The main objective of this program is to attract people that are prepared in knowledge areas, which are required due to the Canadian work situation. The Skilled Worker Immigration program, offers as a main advantage the possibility of making and individual or familiar (parents and sons) immigration.

On the other hand, in 2006, the law of Fair Access for Regulated Professions was approved, which forces different institutions to perform fair evaluation processes, regarding the grades of professionals that were educated in other nations, and whose professions are regulated in Canada (Engineering, Medicine, etc.). This law also authorized the creation of an Assistance Center, for those immigrants that are having difficulties in the process of revalidation of their professional credentials.

In some governments of the Canadian provinces, such as Ontario’s government, there are special programs such as Internship for the Internationally Trained. This program was designed to help foreign professionals in their integration into the local labor force. It consists in giving away training platforms, which last for 6 months; they require a minimum of 3 years of previous work experience.

Summing up, the chances of accessing a labor platform, take time and it depend exclusively in the professional conditions that you have achieved until now. The best possible advice would be for you to gather up pertinent information regarding the work market of the Canadian city you wish to move to.
