How To Get a Job in Canada from Abroad

Step 1:  Read reference materials

Spend time reading reference materials, resources  and web sites about working and living in Canada. This blog   is a huge resource!

Read, read, and read, especially about other people’s experiences.

 Step 2: Consider language requirements
Narrow your search by the language skills you have, need, or hope to acquire. For Canada you need English and French.

 Step 3: Decide what type of job you desire
Choose whether you would like paid or unpaid work, short-term work, a teaching job, or other professional opportunity.

 Step 4: Inform yourself about fees
Find out through government agencies and services providers what fees are associated with applications and visas.

 Step 5: Network
Talk to people, network, and gather information.

Be patient, polite, and persistent. If you consider yourself a passive person, it may be time to reconsider your plan.

 Step 6: Write letters
Write and send letters via e-mail to inquire about opportunities.

 Step 7:  Do more research and be proactive
Keep doing research and sending letters. If you’ve spent time abroad, make sure to highlight those experiences.
