Como conseguir trabajo en Canada?

¿Estas harto de trabajar todos los dias pero no recibir el salario que mereces? ¿No has podido obtener el estatus social que deseas?, ¿pese a que llevas años en el país tu situación social y laboral sigue siendo inestable?

Si estas indocumentado en USA por seguro  pasado varias ocasiones pensando en el regresar a tu país natal, dado que la situación económica ha hecho más difícil el conseguir trabajo, sin embargo también recuerdas que allá encontrar las mismas oportunidades que has tenido es  imposible. Así mismo ves lejana cualquier oportunidad de amnistia y una de las pocas luces encendidas que tenias con las refromas migratorias se borró cuando el departamento de migración de Estados Unidos se transformó en “Homeland Security” y tu caso fue puesto una vez mas en “Espera”.

Tu contribución al país ha sido cuestionada, el gobierno americano no ha puesto en marcha propuestas reales para que tu situación cambie y la gran mayoria de gobiernos en latinomerica  no tiene ni la capacidad de negociación para cambiar esta realidad, ni la infraestructura para poder recibirte de vuelta.

El hecho de no poder aplicar a mejores empleos por la falta de papeles, el no tener mejores condiciones crediticias, asi como la melancolía que da el no poder visitar a la familia cuando las cosas no salen tan bien en tierra ajena son momentos duros que solamente el que ha caminado por la vereda del sueño americano sin papeles conoce. No es una buena idea inmigrar ilegal ni son documentos y peor sin preparacion profesional.

Con toda esta situación me parece que el buscar otras opciones en otros lugares extranjeros para poder legalizarte es lo más prudente, una vez que ya te has acostumbrado a un estilo de vida, lengua extranjera (que pese a que no hables el inglés a la perfección ya no te es una lengua totalmente desconocida) , entonces piensas en Canadá.  Canadá viene a la mente como una opción natural, por lo tanto y dada la falta de información en espanol he creado una serie de articulos y recursos para que conozcas a mas profundidad el proceso migratorio canadiense, estos de estos articulos contienen:

*¿Que estatus legales existen en Canadá?

*¿Cuales son las características específicas de cada uno de ellos?

*¿Qué es un permiso de trabajo?

*¿Para que lo necesito?

*¿Que beneficios me trae mi permiso de trabajo?

*¿Puedo volverme residente permanente de Canadá? ¿Cuando sucede esto?

*¿Quien otorga la visa de entrada al país?

*¿Se me puede negar una visa de entrada al país, pese a que tenga un LMO positivo?

Como te puedes dar cuenta existe una gran cantidad de información que no está disponible abiertamente al público y que la mayor parte de los abogados en migración cobran grandes sumas cantidades de dinero aprovechándose en la falta de información que la mayor parte del público tiene, por lo que es importante de que antes de que comiences tu proceso migratorio tengas la mayor información posible para poder elegir claramente si requieres un abogado en migración o no y cual será tu mejor opción.

Una de las situaciones más difíciles en tu proceso migratorio es el poder darle seguimiento al mismo a larga distancia y el primer paso para lograr esto es entender cada uno de los pasos que compone el mismo para que puedas saber que es lo que sigue, que falta, que entregar, cuando hacerlo y de esa manera tengas un mejor control de la situación.

Asi mismo lo que contiene cada una de las formas y entregables debes de conocerlo para que tu proceso tenga la mayor probabilidad de éxito, es por eso que también se incluyen análisis minuciosos a cada uno de los documentos involucrados en el proceso tales como:

*¿Mi LMO contiene algún número para que pueda darle seguimiento?

*¿Quien brinda este numero?

*¿Donde fue mi caso procesado? (¿fue donde mi abogado me indicó?)

*¿La fecha que mi abogado me dijo que sería procesado es real? ¿donde puedo comprobar esa fecha?

*¿Los documentos que me están mostrando en verdad son los miós? ¿como lo puedo comprobar?

*¿Como se que la respuesta a mis documentos fue positiva o negativa?

*¿En que se basa la desición que el gobierno brinda?

*¿Qué documento es el que me va a permitir entrar a Canadá?

*¿Mi LMO es suficiente para trabajar en Canadá?

Canada immigration: Business people

Business visitor is a separate category with separate requirements. Business visitors do not require a work permit. They may still need a temporary resident visa.  Business visitors do not need a work permit. They may still need a temporary resident visa.  A business visitor is someone who comes to Canada to engage in international business activities without directly entering the Canadian labour market.

Business visitors must prove the following:
their main source of payment is outside Canada and
their main place of business is outside Canada
Business people include certain people entering Canada under the following free trade agreements:
North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
Business people covered by NAFTA do not need a labour market opinion from Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC).
This means that Canadian employers do not need to have a job offer approved by HRSDC to employ a United States or a Mexican business person, as set out in NAFTA.
Business people covered by NAFTA must, however, comply with the general provisions on temporary entry to Canada.
NAFTA applies to four specific categories of business people: business visitors, professionals, intra-company transferees, and traders and investors.

A professional must:
be qualified to work in one of the more than 60 professions listed in Appendix 1603.D.1 of Chapter 16 of NAFTA (for example, accountant, computer systems analyst, engineer, management consultant and technical publications writer) and have pre-arranged employment with a Canadian enterprise in an occupation that matches the qualification.
An intra-company transferee must:
have worked continuously for at least one year in the preceding three years for the same or affiliated employer in the United States or Mexico
be transferred to Canada to work temporarily for the same or an affiliated employer and
work in a capacity that is managerial, executive or that involves specialized knowledge.

A trader or an investor must:
be seeking to carry out substantial trade in goods or services, mainly between Canada and her or his country of citizenship, or conduct substantial investment activities in Canada, in a supervisory or an executive capacity, or in a capacity that involves essential skills
meet additional requirements under NAFTA and
have a work permit.
Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA)
The CCFTA is modelled on NAFTA and makes it easier for Canadian and Chilean citizens to temporarily enter each of the two countries.
The rules and requirements are similar to those under NAFTA and cover the four categories of business people: business visitors, professionals, intra-company transferees, and traders and investors.
General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS)
Under GATS, Canada has committed to making it easier for certain business people who are foreign service providers in certain sectors to access the Canadian market. The commitments apply to service providers from more than 140 World Trade Organization member countries.
 

Three categories of business people are covered: business visitors, professionals and intra-company transferees.

While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me.

Immigration Canada: Bilingual Canada: French

Canada is officially a bilingual country but, with nearly 60% of the population speaking English as their mother-tongue, and only 24% speaking French as their first language. Canada is mostly a bilingual nation on “paper only” but curiously French is not the only linguistic minority in Canada

There are two varieties of French in Canada: Acadian and French-Canadian (or Québécois French), and they differ in terms of accent and local lexis.  Acadians are descendents of 17th century settlers in the province of Nova Scotia, and French-Canadians are generally known as descendents of French settlers in the province of Québec in the same century. 

The French language spoken in Canada (both Québécois and Acadian varieties) is substantially different from Standard French from France.  This is because of a long history of French in Canada, with the original settlers coming from parts of France other than Paris, who continued to use the French from the Ancien Régime, while the Standard French in France used today evolved instead from 18th century bourgeois Parisian French.   The pronunciation and vocabulary of French in Canada is quite different from International French, and a French person or a Belgian might find it difficult to understand a Québecer, like a Texan might find it hard to understand a Welsh-speaker, for example. 

Canadian French also contains a large number of Anglicisms, which is to be expected, since Canada is a bilingual country, and Québec borders the United States (although while French people say ‘weekend’ and ‘parking’, French-Canadians say ‘fin de semaine’ and ‘stationnement’).  Some popular anglicisms in Québec are: anyway (anyway); chum (male friend, boyfriend); checker (to check); cute (cute).

Canada is often described as a multicultural nation. But what does that mean? Simply stated, it means that Canadians are not of any one cultural background, race or heritage. Instead, Canadians today reflect a vast diversity of cultural heritages and racial groups. This multicultural diversity is a result of centuries of immigration.

The greater the diversity of the racial and cultural mix, the greater the need for tolerance and openness in accepting one another as fellow Canadians. With globalization and the ever-increasing movement of people from one country to another, the challenge of appreciating and accommodating cultural differences has become a universal experience. A multicultural policy that is sensitive to the needs of both long-time residents and the newly arrived will probably meet with the greatest success. Canada’s future depends on the commitments of all its citizens to a unified Canadian identity, while still taking pride in the uniqueness of their individual heritage

It’s very important and helpful if an inmmigrant coming to Canada speaks, write and reads well the French Language.

 Of the 251,511 immigrants officially welcomed to Canada a couple of years ago, approximately 17.8 percent of them arrived directly in Quebec. Most immigrants to Canada come to Ontario, but since the language most commonly used in Quebec is French, that province attracts a lot of immigration from Africa (that includes not only the countries south of the Sahara but also the countries on the Mediterranean) where French is still widely spoken.

But do all immigrants arriving in Quebec speak French? Far from it – 58 percent of the people who decided to land in Quebec in 2006 spoke French or had the basics. The rest did not speak a word. It is no wonder that the Quebec government is dedicating a lot of attention and money to teaching French to the remaining 42 percent.

For obvious reasons, wherever you are, knowing the language is a big help in settling down and absorbing the culture of the country to which you have decided to immigrate. It will help you get a job, find a place to live and make friends. You may be able to survive in Montreal speaking only English, but once you start wandering in the rest of the province, you had better make sure you are good at sign language!

So, what can you do in Quebec to learn French? Well, the government is really helping out. There are several programs in place, or soon to be, to ease you into learning the other official language of Canada (yes, there are 2 official languages here).

The government of Quebec has a program in place, in participation with local universities, settlement agencies and school boards. Before you do anything, you should check out the website of the immigration ministry from the government of Quebec. If your French is not good enough yet, you can still browse through the information in either English or Spanish; just click on the link and it will bring you to the proper page. All the information is centralized there and it will help you decide if you can commit to a 30 hours/week schedule for several weeks, depending on your progress rate and initial knowledge of the language. There are of course different levels of courses, so no matter what your skills are, whether you need to learn the language from a beginner’s level, refresh your school memories or simply make sure that your French is up-to-date and on the same level as the current business environment, you will find something that suits you.

There is also the possibility of doing it part time. In 2006-2007, a total of 9,748 immigrants participated in full time French courses (all levels included) and 10,398 in part time ones. Most of those persons were women, taking advantage of the financial support for day care (see next page). A large majority of the courses were also given in Montreal (approximately 71 percent), but this is not surprising since most of the immigration in Quebec is absorbed by Montreal, much like Toronto in Ontario.

There are, of course, the regular local settlement agencies, or “Carrefours d’intégration” (roughly translated, Integration squares). The services there may vary. 

These Integration squares will likely forward you to the ministry of immigration since the main activity of these organizations throughout the province is to help you find a place to live and of course a job, plus helping with all the administrative formalities that you have to cope with when you arrive in a new country. The other reason why they will do so is because the courses offered are very well-designed and accessible to most of the immigrants. Of course, if you are looking for a very specific kind of course, they will be able to forward you to the proper education facility or company.

There is also an internet based databank of a wide range of exercises (over a thousand), from pronunciation to vocabulary, grammar to educational games. You can access this databank from the immigration Quebec website. This databank was consulted in 2006-2007 more than 232,000 times for the French pages, and more that 17,000 times for the English or Spanish pages.

There is also an online service that should be available in January for those of you who want to learn on their own. The government of Quebec struck a deal with Bell Canada to set up the service which will enable those who already have the basics to improve on them and learn more about the province and the social codes.

The other nice thing about the involvement of the government of Quebec is that they are financially supporting those who apply for French lessons. The assistance is not enough to live off of, but it could help if you have to leave your child in day care for example. However, some conditions apply, so make sure you verify everything before starting. The conditions are standard in every province for this kind of benefits. For example, one of them is that you need to have a landed immigrant status. Follow this link to find all the info you need.

Learning French will open doors both personally and professionally – and not just in Quebec – so it’s something worth doing no matter where in Canada you live either as regular inmigrant or a busisness person.

While I wouldn’t recommend starting an online business for everyone, for many people it’s one of the best ways to generate income without a regular job. It has certainly worked disgustingly well for me. If you’re interested in learning more about this option, please check out Start Your Own Successful Online Business   for details.

How to get a job in Canada

1. Create a professional Resume using an unique Resume Builder, online portafolio, store Contacts, make Notes, send Faxes or lastly create your job alerts when registering in canadian employment websites such as workopolis.

2. To get a well paying job, or reasonably well paying, you’re going to need very good spoken English or French with as little accent as possible. Many new immigrants have levels of English or French that is so poor, I couldn’t understand what they were speaking and they hold an MBA from a Canadian University. Many immigrants think that they speak very good English or French which they may be right when comparing the standard of English or French in their home country, but in Canada, their level of spoken English or French  is just very poor. Most companies will not employ people with such a low level of spoken English or French. It simply reflects very badly on the company.

3. It really is very difficult to employ an immigrant based on his/her overseas qualification. No one knows whether your degrees and training is genuine and it is very difficult for the employers to confirm both your training and qualifications. Who knows? This sounds very harsh but that’s the truth of the matter. When you come to Canada you have to start from scratch, if you don’t like it then you have to start your own business. The level of competency from overseas qualifications varies considerably. Some may be very good while some others simply cannot be counted upon.

4. Network. The best companies to work for tend to rely heavily (up to 40%) on employee referrals.[1] Make a list of all of your friends, relatives, and acquaintances.

Touch base with all of your references. The purpose of this is twofold. You can ask them for leads, and you’ll also be refreshing their memory of you in their mind. Use Linkedin and Facebook.

5. Volunteer. Living in Canada and without employment? Volunteering might me a great ‘canadian experience referral” so if you aren’t already, start volunteering for an organization that focuses on something that you’re passionate about. You may end up doing boring or easy work in the beginning, but as you stick around and demonstrate your commitment, you’ll be given more responsibilities

6. Apply for jobs that don’t have a  diploma as a requirement:

1. Careers in Health Care Abound
2. Careers in Public Safety are Growing
3. Careers in Information Technology are Always Around

6 Things you need to know before arriving to Canada

1. Bring or have a credit card. They are are the major means of payment in Canada.

Having a credit history is important if you want to get a credit card, a mortgage, oreven to rent an apartment, rent a car. Consumers who have not had an opportunity to establish acredit history, such as recent immigrants and students, may find themselves at adisadvantage when applying for credit products.

Canadian financial services are credit-oriented. However, financial institutions in Canada generally do notrecognize international credit history, making it hard for recent immigrants, even those with years of stablebanking practices in their own country, to access personal and/or business financing. Lack of a Canadian  credit history is a genuine problem for immigrants trying to settle in Canada, especially entrepreneurs  looking to start a business, as it is a barrier to accessing financing, often preventing newcomers fromintegrating and settling into Canadian society.

2. Credit history is the first thing you need to build in Canada

Credit history or credit report is, in many countries, a record of an individual’s or company’s past borrowing and repaying, including information about late payments and bankruptcy. The term “credit reputation” can either be used synonymous to credit history or to credit score.

In Canadea when a customer fills out an application for credit from a bank, store or credit card company, their information is forwarded to a credit bureau. The credit bureau matches the name, address and other identifying information on the credit applicant with information retained by the bureau in its files.That’s why it’s very important for creditors, lenders and others to provide accurate data to credit bureaus.

This information is used by lenders such as credit card companies to determine an individual’s credit worthiness; that is, determining an individual’s willingness to repay a debt. The willingness to repay a debt is indicated by how timely past payments have been made to other lenders. Lenders like to see consumer debt obligations paid on a monthly basis.

Credit history usually applies to only one country. Even within the same credit card network, information is not shared between different countries. For example, if a person has been living in the USA  for many years and then moves to Canada, when they apply for credit cards or a mortgage in Canada, they would usually not be approved because of a lack of credit history, even if they had an excellent credit rating in their home country and even if they had a very high salary in their home country. An immigrant must establish a credit history from scratch in the new country.  Because if not  is usually very difficult for immigrants to obtain credit cards and mortgages until after they have worked in the new country with a stable income for several years.

Some credit card companies (f.e. American Express) can transfer credit cards from one county to another and this way help starting a credit history, check if your credit company can do before you move to Canada.

3. A car is a necessity:

Enviromentally speaking, I support public transportation with all my heart and had supported with my wallet ( I own an adult trike and use TTC), but life in Canada is more suit to the 4 wheels. Driving less and eliminating “unnecessary” car trips has been one of the leading ways people say they save money.  Driving ourselves to work instead of commuting can be the measurement of promotion or getting fired from work, particularly if the everyday route one takes is prone to traffic jams. Driving is also a lot comfortable than sitting in a bus or standing up in a subway train elbow to elbow with other people.

A car’s comfort, however, varies from place to place. If you live in a region where there is minor or no traffic at all, then you have a painless travel life. You also have an easier alternative to take either your car or public transpo without having to worry which is the fastest. You also don’t have to worry consuming more gas because of traffic and pay for the next time you you fill ‘er up

4.  The cost of insurance is significant:

In Canada, unlike other countries insurance in many cases is highly recommended if not mandatory.  If you own a car, a house or just rent an apartment, it is important to have insurance. It is also important to have health and life insurance. If you own or want to buy and drive car, you are required by law to have at the very minimum, liability insurance.  If you want to take out a loan to buy a car or house, the bank or Mortgage Company will require that you purchase insurance to cover the amount you are borrowing for your car to pay for physical damage to your car, or for the value of the house you are purchasing.  Some landlords require you to have renter’s insurance when you sign a lease.  Life and Health insurance is invaluable, especially when you are in an accident or have a major health issue, and you should have at the very least a life insurance policy to cover the cost of a funeral.  Insurance companies occupy    the best buildings in downtown district.

5.  The Canadian job market is hidden . Canada is experiencing a skills shortage in several industries, and employers may view British nationals with the appropriate skills and experience as a valuable resource. However, the graduate labour market is very competitive, and the current recession is contributing to a challenging climate for both Canadian and foreign jobseekers. Try to build a Canadian employment history , to monitor the Canadian job market  and don’t get stuck in dead end jobs or survival jobs.

Where can you find  work?

•Major industries: trade, finance, insurance, real estate and leasing, professional, scientific and technical services, education, health and social care, accommodation and food services.
•Recent growth areas: service industries and information technology.
•Industries in decline: primary sector, manufacturing and utilities.
•Shortage occupations: health sector (physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical technologists and technicians, nurse aides), management occupations, trade (especially home builders and renovators), occupations related to the oil and gas sector, IT, occupations in social science and government service (including university teachers).
•Major companies: Royal Bank of Canada, Manulife Financial, Bank of Nova Scotia, Toronto-Dominion Bank, EnCana, Sun Life Financial Services, Bank of Montreal, Canadian Imperial Bank, BCE, Imperial Oil.
•Search for more companies: Kompas, Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Yellow Pages Canada.
•Major cities: Ottawa (capital), Toronto (largest), Montreal, Vancouver.

6.  Network, network and network

Join idustries and association , volunteer, ask for information interview, or take bridging programs through your local community college or settlement agency and of course use social media like linkedin and facebook. the canadian welcomes hight skilled  and skilled worker but canadian companies required canadian employment history. before arriving, try to monitor the canadian job market.

Recession Proof Jobs and Careers in Canada

Hundreds of jobs are disappearing daily in many countries. In some industries people manage to keep their jobs during recessions and financial crises. What are the recession-proof jobs in Canada?

To keep a job during an economic recession, it helps to have a recession-proof career. Are there any industries, where jobs will be stable throughout the current global financial crisis?  Here I post a basic  list of  best recession proof  jobs, careerss and industries.

Recession Proof Jobs

Sales & Marketing representatives top the list–and, unlike other professions, not because there’s a shortage. Rather, in tough economic times, a good sales force is a critical way to pull a company out of a downturn.

Network administrators: they are responsible for the design and management of the physical and technical structure of company’s communication tools–such as shared files, e-mail, teleconferencing and company Web sites. Demand is particularly high in emerging markets like India, China and the Middle East, which are these creating networks for the first time.

IT and computer Jobs.  Jobs in this field would continue to be in demand even during financial crisis. The IT services still need to function efficiently with or without a recession.

Food related-jobs. People regardless of their status in life need to eat. Cheaper restaurants and take out counters obviously would need to staff up more employees to meet the demand.

Healthcare/ Medical-Related Jobs. During recession, the need for skilled nurses, doctors, caregivers, medical assistants, doctors, psychologists, psychoanalysts, home health aides, dentists, health service administrators/managers, would most likely be more in demand.
Recession Proof Careers

Medical-Related Careers.   Medical professionals are always in demand. For example, nurses, physical therapists, dentists, physicians, health services administrators/managers and other medical professionals such as pharmacists are always needed because there are always individuals who become ill and need medical care. Medical professionals typically work in schools, medical offices, community healthcare centers, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and hospitals.

Education Careers

Education is another stable career area due to the fact that there will always be children, adolescents, and adults who need to attend school. On the college level and graduate school level, there is a need for professors and administrators because there are always students attending college in order to get a college education.In addition, there is a need for individuals such as Private Tutors and Enrichment Program Instructors or Facilitators for specialized areas including languages.

Computer Careers
Computer science can be a good career area to pursue. Whether the career interest is in being a computer systems analyst, network systems and data communication analyst, software design, web master, web developer, Web Programmer, Information architecture or a network and computer systems administrator, if one is flexible geographically, that helps because businesses always have a need for competent computeror system analyst workers

Accounting Careers and Finantial Careers

Bookkeepig and Accounting can be a stable profession in times of recession due to the fact that even if the economic conditions worsen, people still have to pay taxes. As part of the process of paying taxes, people often need tax advice and tax preparation help. Accountants specialize in giving tax advice and tax preparation help. Thus, accountants work no matter what the economic circumstances are for individuals, corporate, for profit and for the non profit sector.
Recession Proof Industries
Security – No matter how bad the financial crisis gets, the need for security shall not decrease. Jobs like firemen, police, law enforcement officers, customs and security services, forensics, and shop security personnel may even need more skilled personnel during the recession.

Healthcare – As mention above the need for skilled nurses, doctors, psychologists and psychotherapists, analysts, caregivers, medical assistants, physical therapists, home health aides, medical records staff and health information technicians will hardly decrease and may even grow during the recession.

Education – The need for trained teachers and some other skilled people instructors or facilitators is the core processes of the education industry. In highly populated growth areas remain this constant during recessions and will probably remain so now.

Personal Care – Barbers, hairdressers, beauticians and cosmetologists also could keep their jobs. Businesses in the upmarket range might lose customers but those who cater to downmarket needs will probably survive.

Legal Professions – Skilled professionals in the claims and compensation sectors, or those dealing with bankruptcies, and contractual disputes usually see more work during recessions.

Food Industry – People can’t give up eating even during a recession. Cheaper take-aways and eateries would need more staff ready to work at lower pay to function than luxury restaurants, which may not have enough customers.

House and Car Repairs – Skilled house repair servicemen like plumbers or electricians in densely populated areas didn’t lose their jobs during previous recessions. Though not many new houses are being built, emergency repairs are vital. We might drive older cars, but they need to be serviced and repaired. Cleaners will still be needed so executive or average housekeepers will much needed.

Environmental Sector – The demand for skilled professionals in environmental health and protection has been constant and is not likely to diminish during the recession.

Sales and Marketing – Business need to market more aggressively in hard times. Skilled marketing and salespeople working on commission pay basis would keep their jobs even during the recession days.

IT and computing Services – IT services need to function always. Skilled people working to provide Web design, internet-based, computer and IT-related services in core business functions would still be in high demand throughout the recession and more during the next upswing.

Best Jobs options for Canadian Immigrants

Best Jobs options for Canadian Immigrants. Repackage yourself to get the job you want !

We are not advocationg nor will advocate for non-degree professionals. we strongly believe and support highly educated professionals ( a college diploma Or a diploma from a trade school Or a diploma from a correspondance course, certificate, licence, credentials etc).

Passing at Diploma level isn’t straightforward, so the failure rate is far higher than at certificate level, but many people do manage to pass first time around! There are assessed and observed lessons to be taught, plus assignments and written examinations to do.

Is it worth doing a Diploma? If you are serious about any profession longer term and want a greater chance of promotion or job security, then the answer is a resounding “yes”. Doing a Diploma is hard work, but very interesting.

The meaning to have a diploma or certificate is to legally and theoracally show that you have been exposed to the established and recognized knowledge of a particular discipline and that you are able to exemplify that knowledge and understanding in an applicable and relevant way.

Now as foreign born, international trained Professional; temporary worker and possible skilled inmmigrant, there is a secret that everybody knows…once or while applying for work in Canada… a lack of canadian education or credentials makes from difficult to imposible for getting a job.

There  is three solutions to that, they  are:

1. Get your own business

2. Apply for jobs that don’t have a  diploma as a requirement.

3.  Become a well-qualified job applicant

Get your own business:  Coming to Canada as a Business Immigrant: 

The old adage goes: failure to plan is a plan for failure.  Whether you are building a business from scratch or buying a business, you should not skip this important step … even if it means that you just jot your ideas down on scraps of paper or a napkin!

If you already run a business  the Business Immigration Program seeks to attract experienced business people to Canada who will support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.

Business immigrants are expected to make a C$400,000 investment or to own and manage businesses in Canada.

Canada has three classes of business immigrants:

•investors
•entrepreneurs and
•self-employed persons.
Each application can be made for only one class and cannot be changed once the application is submitted. The criteria you must meet to qualify are different for each class.

If you need help contact here

2. Apply for jobs that don’t have a  diploma as a requirement:

1. Careers in Health Care Abound
2. Careers in Public Safety are Growing
3. Careers in Information Technology are Always Around

In general don’t lie about anything in your background. Lying is wrong. Anything you lie about can be found out.

Become a well-qualified job applicant.

You can do this through:

1. Exploiting your transferable skills.
2. Listing school and unpaid experience in the main experience section of your resume.
3. Considering a chrono-functional resume.
4. Don’t apply for jobs for which you’re grossly underqualified, but do remember that job postings and employment ads are often employer wish lists.
5. Consider a two-column or “t-formation” cover letter.
6. Indicate your flexibility and willingness to learn or gain additional training.
7. Consider applying for that job while simultaneously indicating a willingness to be considered for a job that reports to the high-level position.

8. Try finding out more about the employer’s needs, problems, and challenges than what is readily apparent in want ads and job postings. The trick is to discover needs that you can fulfill, paving the way to perhaps creating a position for yourself. How do you find out about these needs? Performing company research is a good start, and you can find great tools in our Guide to Researching Companies, Industries, and fields in Canada but the best approach is informational interviewing, you can use Linkedin for this.

9. Consider a career portfolio with work samples.
Seeing is believing. If you interview with an employer who is not quite convinced of your qualifications, you can bolster your case with a portfolio that shows your ability to do the job.

10. If you can’t get an interview that would enable you to show your portfolio? Create a Web-based portfolio with links to samples of your work. Include the URL to your portfolio in your resume and cover letter and encourage employers to check it out.
 

HOW ARE WELL-QUALIFIED JOB APPLICANTS DISTINGUISHED FROM BASICALLY-QUALIFIED ONES?

If you meet the basic eligibility requirements, the company evaluates and then ranks your work experience, accomplishments, education, training, and overall qualifications background against the qualification requirements of the position. You will receive a score or ranking based on how closely your background matches with the requirements of the position. Job applicants who receive the highest scores or rank in the top category are referred to the selecting official.

WHAT ARE THE QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR TRADES AND CRAFTS (“BLUE COLLAR”) JOBS?

Trades and Crafts “blue collar” jobs have a separate qualification system from “white collar” positions. Applicants for the apprenticeship programs for the various trades must demonstrate the potential to succeed in the job and the ability to complete classroom and on-the-job training. For journeyman or senior level jobs, applicants for trade jobs (for example, electronic equipment maintenance; electricians; plumbers, and carpenters) are rated against competencies/knowledge, skills, and abilities (commonly known as job elements) that are required for successful performance. Each trade has one or more critical job elements that applicants must meet to be rated basically eligible for the job. To be basically qualified, applicants must demonstrate mastery of the specified job elements through work experience, training, or tests.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE A DEGREE?

If you have been in the job market for awhile and have accumulated an extensive work history, you may be well qualified for many positions even without a college degree. Except for certain professional and scientific positions discussed under this blog. The nature of your specialized experience is what really counts.
