Canadian Job Market for Immigrants | Canada Visa

canadian job market

Looking for a job always requires hard work. This is particularly true for international immigrants as they are required to understand the Canadian Job Market with regard to: language skills, different cultural, recruitment process and finding jobs. The following tips will help you acquire the required knowledge to be successful in your job search. There is no magic formula in achieving success in your career goals. It needs hard work, commitment and advanced preparation.

Five Tips for Immigrants to understand Canadian Job Market

1. Always be flexible when considering career opportunities

Not having considerable Canadian experience is already a challenge in itself, adding no flexibility in changing your career path is even a biggest hurdle in job searching. Therefore, it is always advisable to show some willingness to compromise by considering all kinds of job opportunities. It’s possible that your first Canadian job won’t reflect the perfect job you had in mind but try to keep a long-term objective on your career path.

2. Improve your language skills

Since, we all know that Canada is a country with two official languages. Its two prime official languages, which are English and French. But it is quite difficult to find employment in the Quebec provinces unless you are able to speak French. In places like Montreal or Ontario, you will find a great %age of bilingual population. As for other Canadian regions, English language is required for finding jobs. If you speak English fluently and do not speak French, you may want to take profound French courses or want to seek employment in some major places such as Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

3.Understand  cultural differences

To accelerate your job hunting process, it is imperative to develop cultural self-awareness. To become successful in your job search, you have to be aware of possible argumentative values between your country’s culture and the Canadian culture. However, to speak openly about your accomplishments in the job interview is normal. It’s definitely what the Canadian employers are expecting because it’s a great method for them to learn about the candidate’s expertise and skills.

4.Use Networking as an effective job search strategy

Since, a large number of job opportunities are not given in newspapers or on the Internet. Word-of-mouth referrals are practiced in order to minimize the expenses or to proceed faster, these jobs find suitable incumbents. It is important to develop and grow Social contact network in Canada.

5.Focus on your USP and market yourself with confidence

Market yourself in a way that your “USP” or the Unique Selling Preposition is clear to the recruiters in Canadian Job Market. Consider your “USP” such as:

  • Multilingual skills
  • Latest insights on industry developments
  • Ability to adapt and work in a multicultural environment
  • Show extreme interest and determination to work in the process of development of the country.

      Hi Titiksha, working in USA requires an H1B visa, which is issued on the basis of a lottery system. You may be better off applying for PR visa for countries like Canada & Australia. You are at the right age to consider PR visa as you will have good points based on your age and experience. Please contact our counselors for more discussion.
