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 A verbal offer can be withdrawn-it happens all the time.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.

Canadian companies that hired international profesionals and students

Finding a job as international profesional  takes hard work.  It’s a good idea to prepare for your job search before you leave for Canada. Getting ready for interviews, improving your English or French language skills, and getting in touch with a possible mentor   all may help in finding a job.
 Here are few tips:
First. Strong employment prospects for you as an international profesional and international student may be with organizations that have an international focus, such as the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization,World Bank or African Development Fund. Likewise, you may have more success with Canadian companies that have an international presence. Your international experience, language andcultural fluency make you very attractive to these organizations. In addition, if your Canadian work  authorization is delayed, you may be able to continue to work at one of their branches outside of  Canada. (ie: in your home country). Hineni Media Subscription site includes several  resources that name  Canadian companies with divisions throughout the world. Here you will find  a few:
Secondly, as an international profesional or international student you may find the job search process less difficult if you study technical subjects. High tech firms in Canada are desperate to hire skilled workers, particularly inthe areas of Systems Analysis and Programming, Engineering and Accounting. If you are not majoringin one of these areas, at least consider developing computer skills (programming, word processingand spreadsheet design, web development), quantitative skills (accounting, statistics and economics) and/or scientificskills (lab research) through elective classes, independent studies or extracurricular activities tomake yourself more marketable.
Here is a partial list of companies that hired international students who graduated from Canadian programs:❖ Scotia Bank ❖ Ernst and Young❖ Xerox❖ 3M Canada Company❖ MTV World❖ Thrifty Foods❖IBM Canada❖ Meyers Norris Penny Canada❖University Health Work❖ Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro❖ Peterbourogh Regional Health❖ Nestle Canada
 
 
 Canada Employment System
The first step in designing an effective job search strategy which will lead to employment in Canada is to clearly understand the setting in which you are operating. As a international professional or international  student, you  may not have had much experience job-hunting in your home country. Even if you have, you arelikely to find job-hunting in Canada is a different process. The differences are culturally based and, therefore, you may have to work very hard at overcomingthe natural inclination to conduct yourself as you would if you were looking for a job in your homecountry. Different cultures have different sensibilities. Be aware of the setting in which you areinterviewing.  Hineni Media blogs about it and  offers services  to assist you in your  Canada job search process.   Take  time to read some of this material before you begin your search.

Programa de migracion provincial a Canada, algo a considerar

En dias pasados, por coincidencia, se publico un articulo del Toronto Sun, uno de los periodicos de mayor circulacion en todo Canada, que habla de como el programa provincial de migracion a Canada, funciona para quienes no estan dentro de la lista de profesiones de gran demanda (low skilled workers), y que a su vez, con el apoyo de empresas privadas, los aplicantes obtienen la visa de trabajo, un contrato temporal, y luego de unos meses, la residencia legal, pudiendo optar tambien por la ciudadania. Lo interesante es la opcion viable para personas poco opcionadas al programa federal (nacional), junto con la reduccion de tiempo de proceso. Lo que mas me llamo la atencion, aparte del articulo en si, son los comentarios dejados por “Canadienses”, con comentarios no tan agradables … juzguen ustedes mismo.

How to effectively obtain employment in Canada

Marketing yourself effectively in the language and style that employers understand is often the key to an international job seeker’s success in Canada. Many foreign job seekers may not know the best way to market themselves to a typical Canadian  employer. Here are five of the top tips to supercharge anyone’s job search in Canada:

Your CV Must Be in  “Canadian standard” – Canadian companies expect your Curriculum Vitae to be re-written as a standard “Canada-style” resume. Any other format will be confusing to the employer and could result in your resume being discarded. Canadian resumes should detail your education, employment history and achievements as in your CV, but you need to do that  in “Canadian English” spelling and grammar. Job seekers should have a good comand of English or French, both official languages in Canada and if knowing they should try   to use the correct Canadian terminologies for their profession as well. Using a distinctly Canadian spell-check program and researching similar Canadian technical terms online will help keep your document understandable. If your CV isn’t Canadian standard, you might as well not even bother applying; the Canadian employer will find a standard CV confusing and may not take the time to read it.

Be Proud Of Your Accomplishments – In a competitive job market, Canadian employers need a really good reason to hire you over a similarly-qualified applicant. You may not be used to boasting about your accomplishments, but in Canada your prior successes really count. Think about the last time you successfully completed a project or helped create a “happy-customer” transaction. Make a list of at least three success stories, and be prepared to tell the Canadian employer about them. Employers in Canada love to see statistics, too. List specific statistics related to your work accomplishments in your resume. This will really boost your resume’s credibility.

Keep Your Resume Concise And To The Point – There is an old Canadian saying too: time is money. This is no truer than when an employer is looking at your resume. A “Canadian Resume” should be no more than two pages long and be easy to read. Above all, do not state the same information twice. If you have performed the same job for a number of employers or if you have tended to work in the same industry job after job, try to rephrase the job descriptions or find new terms to describe your tasks. This keeps the reader interested, and the resume interesting!

Attach A Cover Letter And Make It Great – Cover Letters are a one page “soft” or friendly introduction to your resume in Canada, and the same principles of brevity in a resume must also be applied in a cover letter. Canadian cover letters are not personal letters of introduction, but instead highlight your professional skills and outline how you can contribute to the success of the organization you are applying to. And it isn’t just about being brief; you must be persuasive and to the point in your introduction. A cover letter is a sales tool… for you. Don’t be boring! Employers want dynamic employees, so don’t give them a reason not to interview you. You need to write your cover letter with the goal of enticing the reader – the employer – to find out more about you. A good cover letter will automatically give you a better chance of having your resume read and considered.

Be Yourself – Canadian employers are looking for a person who will be a good fit for the job. When you are applying for a job to Canada and are many miles away, it may be tempting to overstate your skill or expertise level just to tip reader’s interest in your favor. A good resume always clearly states your credentials and expertise for the position – but stays on the safe side of hyperbole. Employers may be able to find 100 job candidates who are suitable for the job but they are also looking for a ‘real’ person who can deliver the skills and talent that their resume promises.

Some of the challenges an international job seeker faces may be readily apparent, understandable, even universal – while others are not quite so obvious. To be successful in Canada you must have the job-search tools and the know-how to compete head-to-head successfully with an Canadian applicant.

How to go around the “No Canadian experience and without a work permit” I

As the post title, my intention will be to provide you information related to  how to go around the ‘no Canadian experience and without a work permit” Part I,  in your search of “How to Live and work in Canada. I’ve been living here since 2001 and a lot of things have changed. However, I think that I can help you go through your dream of living in Canada and working as an immigrant.

My dream started back in 2000 when I finished my undergraduate degree and when I was looking for universities to a Master’s degree abroad. That’s how everything starts.

If you have the same dream, or if you’re also want to live and work in Canada here read on.

In order for Foreign Trained Professionals to get jobs in Canada, the first step is that they need to have qualifications and licenciature  aproved or  their Foreign Qualifications   Evaluated and Recognized in Canada  by one of the 34 Canadian regulatory professional career  bodies.

Second step is  to register in their field association. Third step is  to register in  Co-op universities programs,  where a Foreign National, worker or professional  is able to  upgrade  language or  career skills.

As Foreign National, worker or professional take advantage of work-study field  or  internships placements, because they will give  you the so called  “Canadian experience”  and through it you could get a legal Canadian  work permit.  Hineni Media  listings shows all the employers that participate in Co-Op work-study programs. Hineni Media  listing provides all the essential information such as application deadlines, compensation, perks, selectivity and more.. 

A Canadian work permit is a temporary resident visa issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to grant permission to foreign workers seeking to engage in employment in Canada. It most commonly has maximum validity of up to one year, although work permits can be issued for up to three years in some cases. We’ll talk about that in  the  part II of “‘No Canadian experience and without a work permit “.

How do I find a sponsored job in Canada?

Many people around the world are trying to find the answer to the question: “How do I find a sponsored job in Canada?”.

Finding a Canadian employer to sponsor you can be the most difficult part in immigration to Canada. Most people search for a sponsor by applying to adverts on job search websites or in newspapers, but did you know that only an estimated 30% of all jobs are advertised here? There are theories that around 70% of all jobs in Canada are found in the ‘hidden job market’, meaning they are not advertised through the usual media channels.
This article will give you a plan, using several steps, of how to tap into the hidden job market in Canada, and to help to make your dream of emigrating to Canada become a reality.
 
1. Research.
You will not often find Canadian employers advertising that they are looking for someone to sponsor from overseas. The main reason being, if there is someone with the required skill set in Canada, it is easier for the Canadian employer to offer a job to someone who is already established in Canada and can start work immediately – in comparison with employing a foreign national and going through the sponsorship process, the cost involved and the time delay for the sponsored individual to commence employment in Canada.
 
The vast majority of  Hineni Media  efforts are spent researching and updating jobs so that our subscribers find the best Canadian employers and places to work.
and that way can have access to virtually every job opening out there. All openings are kept current. Content is King. We are a research-driven organization whose primary aim is to locate as many job opportunities as possible for our members. We organize the products of our research and eliminate a good portion of the cumbersome process of finding a job. Not only do we locate jobs not listed anywhere else but we do so on such a massive scale that it would be impossible for any individual to even come close to duplicating our research efforts.   We work hard for you and provide our members with the advantage of having a personal army of researchers tirelessly locating new and exciting job opportunities. We offer an exclusive, members-only subscription to weed out stray job searchers.
You are also unlikely to find a Canadian employer to sponsor you through the use of a recruitment agency,unless that recruitment agency specifically mentions in their job advertisement that the Canadian employer is willing to sponsor the right candidate. Through our listings you can search out companies in Canada whom you would like to work for. In general, larger companies in Canada are more likely to sponsor people from overseas than the smaller companies (due to budgets and business scope), however you should not strike out the smaller companies, as some are still willing to sponsor the right person.  Hineni Media provides a list of Canadian employers willing to get you a work permit for certain fields . We publish helpful material on Minority, career development and placement.
If you don’t want to save time, and get convenience, through a Canadian Employers  for international professionals database, you can also research the Yahoo Companies Directory to find companies in Canadian to approach for sponsorship on your own.   Contact these companies that interest you, sending them your resume / CV and enquire as to whether they have any opportunities available. Many of the larger companies tend to have a “Careers” section on their website, where they enable job seekers to search for their current vacancies, and also to submit their resume and cover letter into their database. This way, if they do not have a current vacancy that is suitable to your experience, they can call upon their database when a position does become available, and contact you.
 
2. Global Companies
 
Search out global companies who are based in both your home country and in Canada, and find out whether they offer transfer opportunities – quite often global companies do. Even though it might mean working in your home country for a period of time before an opportunity arises in Canada, it is worth it in the long run, if it means you can immigrate to Canada through that company. Global organisations also tend to look impressive on your CV / resume.
 
3. Keep a Record
 
Keep a list of the companies that interest you, and contact them all. I recommend phoning to speak to the manager of the department you would like to work in. If that fails, speak with the Human Resources department. Find out whether they are a company who are willing to sponsor someone from another country with the right skillset. Find out how often they destroy applications /resumes / CVs as well – most companies in Canada hang on to applications for 3-6 months, so to be safe, you should follow up your applications every three months. Keep a record of all of the dates you apply for jobs and speak with the company, for ease of keeping on top of your Canada job applications.
 
4. Plan a Trip to Canada
 
Once you have quite a healthy list of companies you would like to work for (no list is too long), and have applied and spoken to all of them, you should plan a trip to Canada where you can meet with each of the employers. If you are unable to set an appointment with every employer, make a plan to visit the company anyway, dropping off your updated resume, and try to get in front of either the department manager, or a Human Resources Manager.
Through making this vital connection with the Canadian employers, you reach them on a personal level, and if they like you, they are more inclined to consider sponsorship than if they had not met you at all. We can help you with Travel and Tours to Canada 
 
5. Volunteer Work Experience
 
If you are able to, when you visit Canada, try to line up some volunteering work with some organisations in Canada. Companies that are most likely to accept volunteers are charitable and non-profit organisations. Approach them and set it up before arriving in Canada so you can build it into your plan for your trip to Canada. Also ensure that you are volunteering in the area of your profession. It will be to your advantage if you have experience working in Canada when you are looking for a sponsor, even if it is volunteer employment. Volunteer placement info here.
 
6. Build your Networks
 
Use social media, join industry groups, make friends in all the right places and put yourself out there. Use your networks and use other people’s networks – especially if you already know people in Canada. The more you put yourself out there, the more success you will have in finding a Canadian employer who is willing to sponsor you. If you think of it this way: most people have at least 100 people in their networks. Therefore if each of those 100 people also have 100 people in their networks, you potentially have access to a network of 1000 people! The more people you are connected to, the more likely you are to find someone who has connections in Canada.
Make everyone that you know, aware of your search for sponsored employment in Canada, and ask them to reach out to anyone that they know, who may be able to help.   You should also try and be wise when building your networks and be selective with you you are connecting with. It would be wise, for example, to strive to make as many connections with Canadian as possible, especially if they are working in the profession of your choice.
 
7. Study in Canada
 
Are there any courses or further education in Canada in your industry you can enroll in? If you can get a student visa and go to Canada to study, you are normally entitled to a certain amount of hours per week that you can work. This is an awesome opportunity for you to network, get your foot in the door and gain valuable Canadian experience and qualifications. Quite often, foreign nationals who study in Canada, are able to stay on in Canada afterward, by transferring their visa status and/or through finding sponsored employment in Canada. There is certainly an advantage for applying for jobs when you are already in Canada, as you are immediately available for job interviews. Again – it is making that personal connection with Canadian employers. Our affiliated English School can help you with that . Contact us for details.
 
8. Successful Self-Marketing
 
Prepare your marketing materials for success. Buy research to ensure that you will be competitive in the Canadian job market – that means ensuring your resume / CV is in a successful Canadian format, and ensuring you have a high-impact cover letter that will entice the Canada employer to review your resume / CV.
If you are serious about increasing your chances of finding an employer sponsor in Canada, you should consider having your resume professionally rewritten specifically for the Canadian job market. Contracting us for Canadian professional to rewrite your resume to a successful Canada CV template, means that you will be in the hands of a specialist who works on a daily basis with foreign nationals, assisting them to find employment in Canada.
 
In Summary
Remember: an estimated 70% of jobs in Canada are not advertised, and are found in the Canadian ‘hidden job market’. It is essential to your success that you access this enormous resource of job opportunities in Canada.
By following the steps above, and consistently working towards your goal on a long-term basis through thorough research, keeping track of your applications, utilising the hidden job market, building your networks, ensuring your marketing materials are of high quality and competitive in the Canadian job market, planning a trip to Canada, considering volunteer work in Canada and/or furthering your studies in Canada; you are guaranteed to increase your likelihood of finding a sponsored job in Canada.
