How To Get A Job In Ontario Today

Are you wondering how to get a job in Ontario?

Visiting Ontario to explore the business and lifestyle opportunities available to you and your family is strongly recommended.

Ontario’s large and diverse economy offers prospective entrepreneurs a wide range of business options. Assessing the business climate first hand can be an excellent way to start your research.

Ontario also offers newcomers lots of choice in where to live. Whether you are interested in a large, cosmopolitan centre, a medium-sized city or a small town or rural area, Ontario has a location to suit your needs. Learn more about communities in Ontario.
Ontario is a very competitive and expensive province. The city of Toronto for instance  is filled with foreign employees, as its main multicultural hub,  such as those from other USA or  EU countries, or those from Commonwealth countries like  Australia or NZ. To successfully get a job in Ontario, you will need to make sure you are fully prepared before you arrive.  

  • Get a work visa. Unless you were born in USA,  England or hold an EU passport or live in a Commonwealth country with a grandparent from England, you will need to obtain a work visa to enter and to  get a job in Canada. Contact your nearest consulate to start your application.
  • Obtain a Social Security number. Your Social  Security number is similar to a National  Insurance number. You will need it to pay taxes and make  Social Security contributions. Contact the Services Canada to get an SI number.Get yourself a mailing address. Employers require you to provide an address to have on file. Make sure you have your accommodations sorted out before you arrive in Ontario. Since hotels are expensive in Ontrio, consider checking the internet or a local Ontario newspaper for cheap accommodations.
  • Obtain a local phone number. If you already own a GSM phone, simply buy a local SIM card. If not, consider purchasing a pay-as-you-go phone when you arrive in Ontario. Make a CV (curriculum vitae). A CV is similar to a resume. It is one to two pages in length and is a summary of your employment history, skills and education. Also consider to join or opening accounts with  Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter to use as online portafolios and network.
  • Start the job hunt. Consider checking local Ontario newspapers like “The Toronto Star” or ” The Globe and Mail”  for job want ads. Also check job websites that cater to Toronto or the city you going to . You will also find job listings at local council job centers, or you could join a recruitment agency. One example of a popular Ontario temp agency is Adecco.
  • Consider opening a current account (similar to a checking account) at a local bank. Once you’ve found a job, you will need a bank account as most CND employers like to pay directly into your account.

Information to assist in planning your trip to Ontario including hotel listings with on-line booking options, calendar of events and information on local amenities is available at Ontario Tourism and Tourism Toronto.

Use your exploratory trip to learn about the business climate, meet appropriate contacts and experience first-hand Ontario’s high quality of life.

Study-Work options for English Language or ESL Students in Canada

Yes you can, But it is not going to be easy, The overseas job market is a tricky one and whether you find a job there or not depends on how good you are. So before anything else you need to assess your own capabilities. And you need to be honest about this assessment. See what category(ies)  you fit into:

1. Type A – Highly academic – Will have a Masters degree or above. Perhaps, even a PhD.or will be called a Geek at some point in life. talk about the theory of relativity like you and I will talk about the cricket score. May not have a very high degree of English skills, but will have adequate to get around and get his work done.

2. Type B – The real go getter – Extremely confident, excellent English skills including spoken and written, may not have a high qualification but would have a degree at the minimum, would have been called a wheeler-dealer or glib talker at some point in life, would be willing to start low in the organisation Knowing fully well, he can claw his way up quickly through his street smartness.

3. Type C – Average Joe – The name says it alli.e., average in pretty much everything but an overpowering desire to go abroad.

4. Type D – Middle age blues – Will be between late 20s or late 30s. Has this persistent feeling that life somehow has given a raw deal and going abroad will fix the problem especially the monetary aspect. Will also suffer from feeling of inadequacy about not creating or having grabbed opportunities in the past. Will exhibit or at some point in time would have had qualities of type A, B or C.

5. Type E – Desi boy – Very desi, poor communications skills but again like average Joe has an overpowering desire to go abroad.  

 

Now depending on which category you fall into your overseas job chances are as follows:  

1. Type A will find a job without a problem if they diligently apply for jobs especially if they have qualifications and experience in high technology areas. They need to be focused on where they are applying. Generic job sites will not be very effective as much as focused research to find out opportunities on company websites who are seeking specific team members. But sometimes you can hit pay dirt from a general jobsite as well. It’s a known fact that many companies especially, Technology firms cannot find specialised people and encourage their governments to create ‘skills shortage lists’ so that talent can be attracted. So you have a very good chance and it’s imperative you use the net to search the skills shortage list of the country you intend to go to. If your qualification and work experience is listed then you have a very good chance. Then you really start the research and send your CV to targeted companies or job sites/agencies. You don’t need a local Canadian  ‘consultant’ who will essentially do the same thing that I am suggesting i.e. send your CV to many job sites abroad and may not have the inclination to do specific search suited to your profile. The thing is these consultants will charge you a bomb for work that you can essentially do yourself if you set aside an hour every day. Simply follow the steps I outlined. If this approach fails go for another Masters or PhD and then use this as a pathway towards eventual job. If you choose the study to work pathway please use  HC.

2. Type B can also find a job but, they will not have the same success as type A. Mainly because type B will have qualifications that will not be in the skills shortage lists of many countries. They do not need BA, B.Com types and unfortunately our dashing type B will have only one of these. Or worse they will have an Engineering degree that will technically fall into a skills shortage but they struggled through the engineering course with many backlogs and the only use they can put a Vernier Callipers now is to check the size of their drink in the absence of a peg measure! So these guys will need to find their way into the country and then use their charm to find a job. One way of doing it is to see if they qualify for immigration under the points system prevalent in many countries which is being changed in Canada and specially for international students. This will essentially lead to a work-to-residency sort of permit.  Obviosly this will be easier to get if you have a spouse who is also qualified. That gives additional points. The other way is to try and get a visitor visa and then once you land there look around for a job and apply for a regular work permit. But getting a visitor visa is not as easy as it sounds and also there will be a reasonable amount of struggle to find a job on a visitor visa as most employers will be apprehensive to employ you while you are on a visitor status. But it can work. One word of caution-DO NOT overstay if you are on a visitor visa.  Canada Immigration officers HATE overstayers and you can also get into legal trouble and even be jailed.  We would never promote any illegal inmigration to Canada.  An easier option is to go for a Masters or specific Diploma and then use this as a pathway towards eventual job. If you choose the study to work pathway please use HC.

3. Type C – It is always a struggle for this type unless they make a valiant attempt to change their circumstances especially qualification and communication. I would suggest getting into a local course for language as well as some technical qualification like IELTS, etc and then attempt  for TOEFL path. That’s pretty  the best advice I can give. A much better way they can utilise is through the study-to-work pathway which will also give the average Joe time to improve on communication and social skills during the stint as a student. If you choose the study to work pathway please use HC.

4. Because type D exhibit traits of A,B or C it is best to decide which type you exactly are and then attempt to do what is suggested.

5. Type E are better off staying home and doing something locally as they will otherwise be exploited rather cruelly even if they manage to smuggle themselves into a country. Sadly these are the people who are exploited by the people smugglers and also the unscrupulous education agents who enable them to go abroad through fakes documents, etc. But once they reach there they are completely lost because they simply cannot cope with the environment unless they already have some family or friends there. But these are the type most likely to actually degenerate into a second graded life after the initial euphoria of being in ‘phoren’ evaporates. Their problem can be curbed by curbing the unscrupulous agents.

I hope that helps. If you choose the study to work pathway please use HC. Otherwise, best wishes and do not hesitate to write to me for further advice at

Self-Marketing in the Canadian Job Market

As Wikipedia states: “The career management process begins with setting goals/objectives. A relatively specific goal/objective must be formulated. This task may be quite difficult when the individual lacks knowledge of career opportunities and/or is not fully aware of their talents and abilities. However, the entire career management process is based on the establishment of defined goals/objectives whether specific or general in nature. Utilizing career assessments may be a critical step in identifying opportunities and career paths that most resonate with someone.”

In a tight job market, getting all the details right matters, and a spreadsheet helps.

Here are some job search strategist

1.Do research about the companies you are applying to, take time to determine the best career choice and to keep a job-hunting spreadsheet.   By using the spreadsheet, you’ll quick access to everyone’s contact information and could quickly find the details you needed about people and jobs, instead of keeping track of dozens of business cards, e-mail messages and written notes.   Words of wisdom: In a tight job market, getting all the details right matters, and a spreadsheet helps. “(It allowed me to have) a much more personalized approach and whenever communication would occur I could check the spreadsheet and know exactly where we left off.

Highlights  

•Use Facebook and its microtargeting ability to find help in your search.  

•Follow bloggers on Twitter to learn about the latest job openings.  

•Shadow an employee to learn about their job, and you might get noticed.

Smart strategy:

Turned to the microblogging service Twitter to see if   you can find the latest job postings. Do also  real-time Twitter searches by position and location (“executive assistant, Hamilton”) to pull up recent tweets.

One USA example also use in Canada:

Name: Marian Schembari Old gig: Freelance writing in New York and Connecticut New gig: Associate publicist at Jane Wesman Public Relations in New York Smart strategy: Instead of responding to an employer’s job posting, she posted an ad for herself on Facebook, the social networking site, and used its microtargeting capability to home in on people who were most likely to offer her a job.  

Her ad asked, “I want to work for Harper Collins, can you help?” Anyone identifying themselves as a company employee saw it on their page. Readers could click on a link that directed them to her resume. Though she wasn’t able to find work with Harper Collins, she did connect with 100 people in two weeks, including someone who was able to offer her a job.   Words of wisdom: Recognize that the best way to get a job isn’t always to apply for it directly.

“I wasted so much time writing perfect cover letters and sending them into the Internet abyss,” she says. “You have to get out there in a way that people will come to you, not the other way around.”

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).

Make your mark in Canada (Job hunt)

Canada,  is one of the largest and most beautiful countries in the world, offers a hugely diverse and exciting environment for work, travel and exploration.  Canadian Private-sector job growth has been strongest in temporary help services and health care. The nation added 10,000 temporary service jobs last month, indicating that many employers were testing the waters before taking the plunge with a permanent hire.

Get the right tools to make your mark in Canada:

You should started out as most people do, got a semi decent CV together and went online in search for jobs at the usual suspects, http://monster.ca/www.workopolisCanadian database  for Int’l  Professional  , etc

Then research a bit on writing a professional CV  as Canada accepts only two pages resumes. Then
if you want to WOW a prospective employer create  an online presence simple as www.hinenimedia.com
 It’s a summary of who I am, what I have done, what I can do and what people say about me.  See yourself as a product which you need to sell to a company.  http://creativewebdesign123.com/  company  does make an amazing job!

Armed with a great CV and a great online presence then to look for the right company where I would fit into as appose to applying for every single job posting available.  Don’t bother to apply for work through a recruitment agency. They won’t help you and will probably not even forward your CV to the employer. I even called a couple of agencies in Canada and all of them declined to take me on as a client. So it’s important to select the jobs which you can make contact with the employer directly.
