Where Are jobs available in Canada?

There are many ways to look for a job in the Canada, we have listed the most relevant below.

Finding a job

Internet: Over the last decade the online job market has exploded into the mainstream and in the  Canada it is now the most popular way to apply for work, especially among younger people and graduates. Online recruitment websites allow you to search according to your criteria, such as sector, salary and region. You can also post your CV on websites so that companies looking for specific skills can find you.

Newspapers & Magazines: Broadsheets such as Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Toronto Sun, etc all have job offers, mainly for executives and professionals, as well as sections dedicated to specific professions, i.e. teaching, computers, media. In Ontario, check out the Toronto Sun (mainly for business and secretarial positions), Metro and  www.poss.ca  for lower level jobs.

Recruitment agencies: Most agencies specialize in a particular field such as computers, nursing, secretarial work, accounting, catering, construction, and so on. There are also “Head hunting” agencies which are hired by big companies to recruit executives, managers or professionals. Others deal solely with temporary staff (temps), and can find you work in an office or as a babysitter, cook, gardener, security guard or any other type of job. To find an agency you can either look in the “employment agencies” section of the yellow pages or go to xxxx  for a list of agencies and their specialist fields.

Career fairs: A good place to get started is to visit a career fair. Fairs usually have a range of employers and concentrate on a specific sector. Usually you apply by sending in your CV and employers decide who they want to meet in advance. As well as getting general information on employment perspectives in different companies, it is often possible to arrange interviews.

Speculative applications: If a specific company is of interest you can send a speculative application. Applications are retained and checked against positions as they become available in some companies.

Chambers of Commerce: Contact the local chamber of commerce of your home country in the  Canada, as they are often asked for candidates and sometimes have a database of open job positions. Often a chamber of commerce will have a list of companies from your home country doing business in the  Canada, which can make good targets for speculative applications.

Jobcentres: They can be found in every town and focus mainly in jobs for the non-professional. They usually have databases of local, national and European vacancies and know about local employers and their needs. Their advisers can help you with all aspects of finding work. They normally have newspapers, books, leaflets and Internet access to support you in your job search

Networking: Sometimes getting a job is about knowing the right people or being in the right place at the right time. You could join an expats club or attend social gatherings where you think you could meet people that are well connected. Just mingle as much as you can and make sure you let everybody know you are looking for employment.

FINDING JOBS & EMPLOYERS: Canada

With unemployment at its highest point since the Great Depression, the need for career and job placement information within the community has vastly increased.  With this, comes a need for more resources; such as  Hineni Media Online Career Library.  I will try to offer you advice on other certain types of jobs or industries you can look into, and I’ll also try to answer any general questions you have on work-at-home offers you come across

Hineni Media Database  includes essential Canadian  industry information synthesized with specific, insider company reports which are of particular interest to students and professionals, normally available only by individual subscription. Hineni  empowers users with fresh, relevant knowledge about Canadian companies, careers and schools and provides the coherent context needed to identify valuable job and educational opportunities.

How  in Canada  can you  find job opportunities?

Networking:  Not for the shy or undermotivated. You need good interpersonal skills. It’s the number one method by which many graduates,undergraduate and university wide job seekers,  had found a job.

Advertised jobs

On-Campus Interviewing Programs,Online and print listings,  Career-field-focused job listing web sites, Career fairs / job fairs:
Lets employers find you. You apply for jobs that interest you but not every industry or type of job represented, on certain listings You need patience to navigate and read listings. As for the career fairs you need to make a good impression in person and look prepared. Do research as who will be in the fair in advance as you won’t be necessarily learning about every opportunity in each organization — you will be learning where the major hiring needs are.
Unadvertised jobs

Online databases, listings, career libraries:
Research sources that help you find potential employers. Very helpful if you are focusing on a particular industry. If you have no clue what type of industries you could work in, you’ll need to research and think about this. Because you’ll need to know the type of organizations with whom you could, or want to, work.
They can be helpful to find contacts for a geographically targeted job search. Specialty sites fill that niche.

A critical mistake many job-seekers make is not bothering to research potential employers, which is bad for several reasons. First, you should always research companies to help you decide if you even want to work at any of them; fit is such an important aspect of job enjoyment. Second, having information about the company can help you better prepare for the interview; the more you know about a company, the better you’ll understand all aspects of its operations. Third, you need to conduct some research on each company because you should expect the inevitable question from the interviewer: “What do you know about our company?” Sometimes it might be phrased as: “Why do you want to work for us?”

All job-seekers need to conduct research and develop critical information about each company — its products and services; key executives; new products, plants, or divisions; company culture; organizational structure; diversity and values; benefits; career paths; etc.

What’s the best source of company information? The company’s Website, of course! It’s absolutely amazing what you can find published on company Websites.

 Work-at-home jobs:
“Are there any legitimate work-at-home jobs for your field? if you are a registered nurse. Please investigated several advertisements. Some sites want money up front just to tell you where to look for a job. I would be very interested in any information or links that would assist me.  If you  have a background in management, med surgery, hospice and acute care. At this time, you coud  drive 40 km round-trip.”

OK, I can’t say this enough: Do not pay money up front to get a job. This is not how it works in the real world of employment. Requests for any money or personal information in e-mails or over the phone are scams, 99.9 percent of the time.
With a health care background, he says, she could get work answering medical questions from home via health help lines. Some insurance companies and nonprofits have these types of call centers, he says, including  Eli Lilly Canada Inc, Novopharm Limited, Bayer Inc’s Informed Health Line, the March of Dimes and the Arthritis Foundation.
In addition, a registered nurse could also look into coordinating home health care services, managing recruitment of nurses for medical facilities, writing training materials and protocols or developing safety compliance protocols.
The key is paring your expertise and skills with jobs that can be done from a home base, and then actively going out and finding companies that could be a fit. Please don’t wait for offers to show up in your e-mail box.

With the Hineni Database  members will possess all the tools necessary to prepare them for career success in Canada.  Additionally, the library will be provided with a one-stop shop for your career content.  Check out the demo link!

Ofertas de empleo y prácticas en Canadá

Tanta es la angustia y la incertidumbre que provoca la falta de trabajo que mucha gente se tranca y encara sus búsquedas laborales sin ninguna estrategia. Se dan así casos de profesionales con un alto nivel de capacitación, totalmente “perdidos” y confusos pretendiendo encaran cualquier trabajo aunque de eso no sepan casi nada.

La mejor estrategia consiste en solicitar la entrevista explicitando que el objetivo de la misma es pedir informacion sobre su búsqueda laboral y recabar su opinión como experto sobre lo que está sucediendo en el mercado en esta época de crisis. Ahi debe  aplicar las técnicas de networking al máximo y además de asi aprender a conocer el mercado objetivo canadiense, donde le toca hacer  mas contactos.

Una vez en la entrevista el objetivo en esta etapa es conseguir entre 10 y 12  y hasta, tal vez, 14 entrevistas en diversas compañias en una semana. Seguramente cada uno de ellas le aportará una visión distinta y por lo tanto un valiosísimo abanico de expectativas o sea aplicar las tecnicas para encontrar y aprender mas del mercado laboral.

Otros valiosos tips son

CONSEGUA UN TRABAJO PART-TIME

Encontrar un trabajo de medio día solamente puede ayudarte a seguir buscando otro trabajo y mientras tanto poder mantenerte. Sin embargo, no dejes que este trabajo le dificulte la meta principal de encontrar el empleo de tiempo completo que desea.

HAGA LAS COSAS QUE TE DIVIERTEN

Despejar la mente es tan importante como llenarla de preocupación por encontrar un trabajo. Por eso hacé lo que más te guste en tu tiempo libre, como los fines de semana. No tengas tu mente ocupada las 24 horas del día en conseguir trabajo.

CONSIDERA TU BÚSQUEDA DE TRABAJO COMO UN TRABAJO

Necesita conseguir algo y debe poner todas las energías en eso, por eso mismo tomalo como un trabajo. Hagalo profesionalmente y considere ese día de búsqueda como un trabajo y no como tiempo perdido.

NO ESTABLEZCAS UNA SOLA POSICIÓN

Muchas veces desecharás algunos trabajos por considerarlos inferiores a lo que estabas realizando antes. Pero en el mundo corporativo, siempre hay algo mejor esperándolo allá afuera. No te guíe solamente por lo que el aviso diga, averigue de qué se trata. Espere oportunidades. Como dice el refrán “las cosas buenas llegan al que sabe esperar”.

UTILIZA TODOS TUS RECURSOS

Dedicarte a una sola forma de buscar trabajo no es satisfactorio. Utilizá todos los recursos y medios de que dispongas: el periódico, Internet, llamadas a amigos y a contactos, etc. No seas estático o pasivo y verás que pronto conseguirás trabajo.

TENE UN GRUPO DE APOYO

Verás que tu familia y tus amigos son los mejores aliados para pasar el momento, ya que ellos también alguna vez pasaron por lo mismo. Ellos siempre estarán allí para apoyarlo.

REGISTRASE O LLEVE  UNA LISTA

Muchas personas trabajan mejor cuando tienen un listado de tareas a desempeñar escritas, y buscar trabajo no es muy diferente. Anotá tus tareas importantes para cada día de la semana y los lugares a los que vas a ir a buscar trabajo.

SEA POSITIVO

Siempre es bueno tener una actitud positiva en una entrevista. Que sepan que estás interesada en el trabajo y dispuesto a dar lo mejor para lograrlo.

SEA FELIZ

Es obvio que luego de estos consejos no es seguro que serás más feliz a la hora de buscar trabajo (especialmente cuando se vuelva desalentador el panorama), pero es una gran oportunidad de que sean positivas las cosas que antes eran negativas, sobre todo si podés tener la visión de que está por comenzar algo nuevo y excitante, en comparación a perder algo viejo que ya no lo satisfacía.
