Canada’s Top’s Job search websites

For Canadian employers, the job-posting process can be frustrating, time-consuming, and unreliable. It can be a lot of work to sort through stacks of resumes, call up candidates, and do interviews – and this doesn’t always produce the best hire. Because so many employers try to avoid the process, approximately 80% of jobs never get listed at all, the jobs are in the so called ‘ hidden market” which is e most commonly accessed by potential employees through personal contacts and/or networking.  So even before coming the  importance of personal contacts and networking cannot be stressed enough in the context of finding work in Canadian society.

However, every year, more than 130,000 students come to study in Canada, and even more to learn English or French, according to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Former International Trade Minister Stockwell Day acknowledged that the education of international students is one of Canada’s a major export industries, and should be developed even further.

The following is a brief list of Canada’s most popular job search websites. More links to job search websites that are specific to professional industries are also included below.

How To Find A Job In Toronto Today

Need to know how to find a job in Toronto?

There are jobs available throughout the province, but finding a job in Toronto can be a challenge when the economy is struggling. To find a job in Toronto, you will need to be persistent.  The first step in finding a job in Toronto is getting organized. Write down your goals, your experience, the types of jobs you are qualified for and what type of jobs you want to pursue. Write your resume, or if you already have a resume, make sure it is current. Your resume should include past dates of employment, job titles and a brief description of each job you have held. If you have sent off several resumes and you have not received any responses, you may want to rewrite your resume.

Write a cover letter that you can use as a template. Each cover letter you send should be brief and written to target the available position. Take the time to rewrite the cover letter for each position because it is the first impression your future employer will have of you. Try to find out the name of the person who will receive your cover letter and resume and address the cover letter to that person. It is well worth the time it takes to send a targeted cover letter that is not generic. Alternatively, you can upload your resume to employment websites. Create, or update, social networking profiles. Tell your friends, family, church members, club members and others that you are looking for a job. Chances are that someone you know may be able to help you find one. Search the websites of companies that are located in Toronto that you would like to work for and fill out an application. If an application is not available online, call the human resources department of the company in question and ask if they have job openings and if you may send your resume. Also search the state, county and city government websites for openings. Read the classified section of Toronto newspapers. You can also check out internet classified sites for jobs in the different cities and towns of Toronto. Be sure to tailor your search so that you see results for the fields you are looking for.   If you find that you do not have the skills for the jobs that you want, consider going back to school to learn the skills that are needed. Stay optimistic and keep sending out resumes. You will eventually find a job in Toronto that you want.

What to do if You Can’t Find a Job in Canada

What to do if You Can’t Find a Job  in Canada

Is this you?

You are looking for a job in Canada. You’re facing at least one of the following obstacles, and it is starting to get tough:

  • You don’t have a work permit
  • Job prospects are sparse
  • You want a flexible work schedule
  • You are running out of money
  • You don’t know where to look next

What do you do?

If you live overseas looking for a job and have not been able to get hired by a company, it may be time for a different approach.

Here is a quick and easy answer that can open up many kinds of exciting and profitable opportunities for you:

Start thinking like a business owner   rather than a job hunter.

Set up your own consulting or freelance business, and start to scout for clients, not a job. Send out brilliant business proposals instead of résumés. Have business meetings with potential clients instead of interviews with potential employers.

Propose clever ideas for improving your client’s business. And when the time is right and your client is ready, name your price. They can accept it or reject it, but eventually you will probably end up negotiating the terms, just like you would when accepting a job offer.

Setting up your own business is not as hard as it sounds. And, it is a little-known trick to potentially getting around the work-permit issue – at least for a one-person business in the short run. (If you want to set yourself up as a corporation with more employees than just yourself, the process becomes more complicated but can be done with the help of lawyer.)  Plus, having your own business can open up worldwide opportunities, as well as multiple streams of income, which can lead to quick income as well as a flexible lifestyle.

Setting up your own business  is a perfect solution for trained professionals looking for ways to use their professional skills locally, on a full or part-time basis, and can be a particularly fitting solution for working mothers who want flexibility to care for the family while still enjoying professional fulfillment.

Thinking like a business owner can help you create your own exciting and profitable opportunity abroad in at least three ways:

1. Get Your Foot in the Door to a Company
By setting yourself up as a consultant or freelancer, you may also be able to sell yourself to a company. Instead of hiring you as a full-time employee, a company can hire you on a contract basis, which may be an advantage for both of you. In the future, you could be considered for a long-term position if one becomes available.

Additionally, in many countries the company might be able to avoid paying expensive social security and other taxes by hiring you as a consultant. This is a good negotiating point when you are trying to convince a company to hire you as a consultant.

2. Create a Portable Career
If you move from country to country every few months to every few years, you may desire a portable job and career that you can take with you wherever you go. You can do lots of interesting work from a laptop, including writing, website development, graphic design, software design, content development, research, translation work, business consulting and many other Internet-related jobs.

3. Be Inspired by other Business Entrepreneurs
Find out how other people are living, working and established business in Canada. If you hear ideas that strike your fancy, make contact with the folks and ask them for advice. One middle-aged korean couple buys and restores old farmhouses and rents them out to tourists. Another Colombian living in Vancouver gives seminars and workshops in photography and art. And one woman who lives in Newfoundland  permanently uses her graphic skills to design newsletters for clients in the United States. These people are living where they want and the way they want. And with a little ingenuity, you can too.

How to get a IT job in Canada?

How to get a IT job in Canada?

First off, what is your nationality – do you have citizenship to EEUU (USA)  or is your  country part of  NAFTA? If you do, then it’s easy to get a residence permit, which gives you the legal right to work in Canada.  From there, your past work experience will leave you fairly well-prepared to find work in  Canada. In fact, the IT sector is the industry that a large amount of foreigners find jobs in.

If you don’t have EEUU (USA) citizenship then you have a long journey ahead of you. You’ll need to first find a job, convince a reluctant Canadian employer to hire you because no other local is qualified to perform the job, and then start the residence permit application process. Only once this is granted can you actually begin work. You should note that the Canadas employ an incredibly restrictive, quota-based foreign immigration policy that only grants residence permits to, arguably, the incredibly healthy; the highly skilled and educated immigrant.
