To find employment opportunities, you must use some freely available sources of information, in addition to another vital component: design. Design is essential to your success – don’t be among the many who get some unfavourable responses from potential employers and give up their research. Here are six tips on how to find employment before applying for a work permit.
1. Determine if you want a work permit for short or long-term residence. The Canadian immigration system is perhaps the only system in the world that includes work permits in applications for permanent residence. Long-term work permits can lead to Canadian citizenship 3 to 4 years before a short-term work permit. Target a short-term work permit if you do not intend to become a Canadian citizen.
2. Define a district-level search, where employers are easy to find. Canada is the only country in the world to authorize the appointment of immigrants to the provinces. To improve district-level research, use the Canadian government information on the labour market and foreign worker statistics to find out which county is most likely to need your skills. Statistics reveal the country of origin and industry of foreign workers. The print media in your country often announces employment ads, and you can apply before immigration.
3. Learn about the requirements of regional migration for foreign workers. You can find free information about immigration requirements for foreign workers on the county websites. For example, use your favourite search engine to search for the word immigration, followed by the name of the province you want to search for (an example is an Immigration to Ontario). The sites in the search results will allow you to download application forms, obtain information about passport requirements, download other documents, and obtain details about who completes the types and where to submit applications…
4. Create a list of potential employers by following Canadian commercial publications. Read interviews with industry leaders and job reviews and take your notes on how to do the job better. Pay particular attention to the industry conditions used in Canada and create your dictionary for the Canadian industry; this will help you a lot in job interviews.
5. Visit potential employers’ websites, check their jobs section, and try to apply for a job. If the necessary conditions for applying for a job include “the right to work in Canada,” ignore the employer on your list and move to the next employer.
6. Visit Canada’s annual and international recruitment events are great places to meet potential employers. Unlike other countries, visiting Canada for job interviews is not a reason to refuse entry. Annual employment events are golden opportunities and are uniquely Canadian and have the sole purpose of complementing the Canadian workforce. Employers for these types of juveniles have prior government approval to hire foreign workers. You can also check the local Canadian embassy website for registration and dates.
You are finding a job before immigration requires a different approach than that used to find a local job. There is a lot of old information. Spend some time researching your field in Canada using the resources available for free from the resources mentioned in this article. Think at the district level, make sure you’re ready to emigrate and use these tips to find gaps in the market and city where you are more likely to find jobs and to find hungry employers – to work. From these tips, strategize and start digging. Good luck, everyone.
