What To Do To Get Hired Easily in Canada

Looking for  employment as foreign national, professionally trained or migrant worker in Canada? 

 Hunting for a job always feels like a major challenge. But the task facing newbies in Canada in any type of industry is especially daunting. Looking for jobs, writing your cover letter and resume, the interview process – so many tasks and so many things to go wrong. However, the truth is that you don’t need to worry. Statistically, unless an industry is dying, you will always be able to get a job.  There are many canadian industries alive and kicking.

When looking for specific employment, you need to keep one important point in mind. For every five interviews you attend, you should receive at least one job offer. When times are good, you could find yourself attending two interviews on Monday and both  jobs service contractors will call you back the next day asking you to start immediately.

The simple fact is that companies won’t call you for an interview unless they are seriously looking for people. Conducting an interview is an expensive process. Once an employer calls you for an interview, you are already halfway towards getting hired. If you attend 20 interviews and are rejected for all of them, you may want to look for a psychiatrist or therapist. Unless you lied on your resume and were found out, this kind of rejection shows that you are self-sabotaging your own interviews. You should look for professional help to cure your problem.

What if you aren’t getting any interviews? Is there something wrong with you? Not necessarily. You’ll often see many job vacancies on the popular job boards like Monster. But there are times when half of these advertisements are fake – tricks used by human resource departments to find out how many unemployed workers are available. Many employers do want to find out how easily they can replace their current workers with cheaper workers.

What Are Managers Looking For?

If you want to get hired, you need to give the interviewer what he is looking for. Your attitude matters a lot. An factory job for instance  is not a big place – very often, 200 to 300 workers are squeezed into a small space in the middle of the plant far away from city. You have nowhere to run from other people, and other people don’t have anywhere to run away from you. This means that no employer wants to hire a troublemaker. While you want to give the impression of being an experience and trained profesional  you don’t want to do this by bragging about how many titles and awards you got into or won.

So if you are fresh from school and don’t have any relevant working history, you don’t want to tell your interviewer that you were the star dancer of your school’s award-winning ballet troupe – not even if the ballet training gave you the endurance to run a marathon and the strength to bench-press 200 pounds. The simple point is this – if many people think a particular activity is only for wimps or nerds, you don’t want it on your resume and you don’t want to tell your interviewer about it.

Your interviewer wants to hear about how you help the company you worked for.  So you need to have the right attitude, but you also need to have some relevant skills. You need to ask your interviewer what he wants from you. What skills does he need you to display? In theory, this information will be in the job advertisement. In practice, if you’ve ever played the telephone game as a child, you’ll know that what the HR manager put in the advertisement is a far cry from what the interviewer wants. In any case, by asking this question, and responding with your strengths, you will make it easier for the interviewer to remember you when it’s time to choose which candidate to hire.

Just because you have never worked on an given specific field does not mean you don’t have a chance of getting hired. Do you have any the field-going experience? Have you ever worked on for someone in that area during your vacation? Have you worked as a  in manual labors?  Depending on what type job you are looking for, any or all of these could be relevant experience that can help you get hired. It’s certainly better than the experience of the laid-off office boy from General Motors.

If you are serious about getting hired for  high skilled jobs and other low skilled  jobs, brainstorm your relevant experiences before your interviews. Dress neatly (ask the HR staff who called you what to wear), stay calm during the interview, and remember that most people will get at least one job offer for every five interviews they attend. Think back over every interview you finish – what did you do well, and what did you do wrong? Sit down, figure out your mistakes and do better the next time. Practice makes perfect.

Best industries to find a job in Canada

With the ranks of the unemployed swelling and domestic opportunities sparse, job-seekers may need to look far afield for their next gig. I laid out some ideas, options and criteria:

  • An industry which has a stable future where jobs will be difficult to out-source or off-shore
  • An industry which is growing – the demographics indicate long term demand will grow or at least not shrink
  • An industry which is everywhere – so you could change locations but still find a job
