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 get Canadian Experience

“Canadian Experience” For Immigrants and Newcomers

  

Are you new to Canada, or thinking of immigrating here for a job? You should know that employers here might ask if you have “Canadian work experience.”

 

This may sound like an odd question. There you are, coming from outside our country. You may have years of work experience and proper credentials from your homeland. Yet that may not be enough to convince Canadian employers of your worth.

 

So what is “Canadian experience” and how can you get it (or get around it)? Read on for more.

 

What Do Employers Mean By “Canadian Experience?”

 

According to Jeffrey Lee, Employment Specialist /Practicum Coordinator at CDI College in Burnaby, British Columbia, “Employers look for Canadian workplace experience so that employees are familiar with workplace culture, social cues, and expectations.”

 

Since different cultures may have different ways of handling situations, “newcomers with ‘Canadian workplace experience’ are seen as being more capable of getting along with the workgroup,” adds Lee. He also notes that having your professional credentials and education authenticated here is important too.

 

There are other aspects to Canadian experience as well. Peter Dudka, Acting Program Manager, Transition to Employment Programs at Polycultural Immigrant & Community Services in Toronto, Ontario, points out that employers favour the following:

 

– Fluent English or French, depending on what province you are in. This is crucial. Accent is not an issue, but clear expression of ideas and understanding local terminology are what matter  

– Local certification. Not necessarily a two year diploma or a Bachelor’s degree, but even the shortest course here that is relevant to the job will help you stand out from other job seekers

 

– Narrow specialization. Many newcomers instead offer (in resumes or during job interviews) wide experience and education, from which it is difficult to extract whether they can do that particular job or not

 

Dudka adds to this list “the art of selling yourself, which is foreign to many newcomers in Canada. It is related to the previous point: you need to be able to clearly highlight your strengths in one particular field.”

 

How To Get “Canadian Experience”

 

No Canadian experience, no job. No job, no Canadian experience. It’s a conundrum that many thousands of newcomers face each year. Fortunately there are ways to overcome this obstacle.  

Jeffrey Lee, who has helped internationally-trained professionals find employment, offers advice. “Many recent immigrants can start by volunteering with various charitable organizations, offering their expertise for a variety of projects.”  

As well, Lee recommends attending a professional mentoring group where skilled immigrants are paired with local professional peers, to talk about how to prepare for entry into their desired occupation.  One such program in B.C. is from MOSAIC. He also suggests volunteering at businesses related to your profession, if they are open to this.  

Peter Dudka suggests connecting with local agencies in Canada that offer free employment assistance to immigrants. “Through our agency, for example,” says Dudka, “we offer advanced English classes, work placements in Canadian companies, interview preparation courses and networking events with local employers.  

If you happen to live in Quebec, you can get Canadian experience working in something called a Practice Firm. These are specially made businesses that only interact with one another. No actual money or salaries are involved. Practice Firms are training facilities that let you do specific jobs as if for real. There are 30 of these Firms in Quebec, and one in Ontario. A  list of these is available at the Canadian Practice Firms Network (CPFN).  

Taking A Lower Level Job To Get “Canadian Experience”

 

To get your start in Canada, you may want to consider taking a lower level job here than you are used to. It could be quicker for you to get initial employment that pays less. While it may be a step down, it translates into Canadian experience. The truth is that this is a common approach for a good percentage of newcomers.  

However be careful not to get stuck in a menial job that is hard to move upward from. It would be smart to consult directly with one of those local newcomer agencies mentioned above. They can advise you personally based on your circumstances and needs. Meanwhile, read Monster.ca articles on Working for Less: When It’s OK to Take a Pay Cut, and Should I Apply To A Job If I’m Overqualified?.

 

More About “Canadian Experience”

 

According to Jeffrey Lee, some industries such as IT (Information Technology, e.g. computing, software, telecommunications) may be less strict about where your experience is gained. Therefore this field might be easier to penetrate in Canada. At present, European-trained engineers may also have an easier time to get their credentials acknowledged than ones trained in Asia or the Middle East.  

Other skilled immigrants can benefit from a program offered by the not-for-profit Allies, says Peter Dudka. Allies has created a National Mentoring Initiative in various cities across Canada. Mentoring offers a connection between a skilled immigrant and an established Canadian professional in the same or related occupation. It’s a way of helping skilled newcomers integrate into the workforce faster.  

Working in this great country can be marvelous. There are all sorts of challenges and rewards for immigrants.

Getting your start here can be difficult, no doubt. It will make things easier if you’re prepared when the interviewer asks: “Tell us about your Canadian experience.”

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

Best way to find work in Canada

Want to work in Canada?

Non-Canadians can become eligible to work in Canada by becoming a Permanent Resident of Canada or obtaining a temporary work permit:

The best way to get a job now is the same as in the ’70s and the ’80s—word of mouth. ”HR and managers are too picky or too precise with candidates. However, I think there are a couple of things that could help job-seekers that go beyond networking.  1) Be willing to accept a job at a lower salary and outside of your field, you can always move up (or out) once you prove your skills and build a reputation/references 2) Similarly, try to get in with a company that develops their employees and promotes from within.

Another super trick is to do the online application, wait a week, then call the HR dept. Ask them when they are starting to schedule interviews. Call back on that date and say, “I am calling to schedule my interview.” Be proactive, in other words. Always ask about the next step.

Non-Canadians can become eligible to work in Canada?

 Permanent Residents

•   Permanent resident status can be obtained independently or, in some cases, with the help of an employer •    Permanent residents have the same rights and freedoms as Canadian citizens (with a couple of exceptions). They may work for any employer in Canada and may stay in Canada indefinitely.

Foreign Workers Requiring Work Permits

•   Require a job offer and employer assistance to obtain a temporary work permit

•    Can obtain a work permit through one of many ways that vary according to citizenship and the job

•    May apply to become Permanent Residents
The chances of obtaining a work permit increase according to demand for your skills in Canada. Skills shortages are determined by local labour market information and needs. Generally, people with specialized skills which are in short supply in are sought after and will have an easier time with the application process.

What are my chances? There are a number of programs that may make the work permit application process faster and easier for the employer, making it easier for them to get you to Canada.

NAFTA Professionals Citizens of the US and Mexico may be eligible for a work permit under the provisions of NAFTA. NAFTA applies to certain professionals meeting certain education and experience requirements. If you fit the criteria and have a job offer from a Canadian company, this may be a good option for you. You may even be able to apply for this work permit upon entry to Canada (at the airport or border crossing) with the right documentation in hand.

Expedited Labour Market Opinion (E-LMO) program    If your occupation falls within one of these categories, your employer may apply for an expedited labour market opinion. The regular labour market opinion process (not expedited) can take up to six months. The expedited process can be as quick as two weeks. The first step is for your employer to apply to become eligible for the program. These applications are made to a government department called Service Canada. Once they have offered you the position, they apply for the E-LMO. Service Canada then produces a document called the Labour Market Opinion which you then use to apply for the work permit itself.

BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)

If your long-term goal is to become a permanent resident of Canada, then this may be an option to investigate. Your employer must be willing to sponsor you for permanent resident status. They must make you a permanent job offer and must meet the criteria to be an eligible employer. Your occupation must be either in management, a skilled professional, or in the skilled trades. The process has multiple stages, including:

1.    BC PNP application (joint application between you and the employer) 2.    Application for a work permit (processing times will vary depending on your citizenship and whether or not you also need a visa to travel to Canada)
3.    Application for permanent residence. Step 1 will take six to eight weeks and after step 2, you may begin working in Canada. You can make the application for permanent residence after your arrival in Canada and, if all moves smoothly, become a permanent resident within the next year. Occupations under Pressure If your occupation is considered an occupation under pressure, the employer will need to prepare less documentation to prove they have been unable to find a Canadian or permanent resident to fill the position. The shortages in these occupations are documented and already known. The processing time for applications (called a Labour Market Opinion) under this program are still quite long — approximately six months. The application process may begin once you’ve been offered the position or possibly already be underway. Once approved, Service Canada produces a document called the Labour Market Opinion which you then use to apply for the work permit itself.  Also note that your credentials must be recognized by the relevant professional association or regulatory body, if applicable. There may be a registration process to ensure you can officially work in your profession.
The work permit application process in Ontario

To work anywhere in Canada, you need to get a social insurance number (SIN) from Human Resources and Social Development Canada.

You don’t need a work permit if you’re a permanent resident. You do need a temporary work permit if you’re staying and working just a short time or seasonally in Ontario.

In some situations, students are able to work while studying and after graduating.  If you plan on working temporarily in Ontario after you graduate, you will need a work permit.   

Obtain an Application for Work Permit

Here you can read more info that can  determine how to find a job in Ontario
The work permit application process in Canada has grown longer (especially in BC and Alberta) but it is still a relatively transparent and easy to understand process. Understanding the basics will help you and your potential employer plan for the best option and hopefully get you here and working (happily) quickly.
