You’ve landed in Canada, now what?
You’re in a new country. Living the next chapter of your life.
You don’t know anybody and the streets look unfamiliar,
but you’re ready and eager to build your new life.
You left a career back home to pursue opportunities in a new land, so how do you go about doing that?
Scope Out The Field
The first thing you want to do is to research well.
When you research well, you can formulate a better strategy and a better strategy will increase your chances of getting that interview.
Find out who is hiring, read reviews from former employees of the company, what are they offering that makes them a great match for you? and decide for yourself if you want to work for them.
Remember you have control on who you work for.
Look at what positions are available. Are there opportunities for career advancement?
What is the average salary for your position? The last thing you want to do is accept a job that is on the low end.
What is the work culture of the company you are considering? Do they consider the well-being of their employees? What are their goals? Do they pay the courses/programs to improve your skills?
Go over their website, social media, LinkedIn profile and google reviews. You will get a feel of who they are.
Remember you have control to choose the right environment for you.
What are the qualifications they are looking for in a candidate?
Skillsets? What pre-requisite knowledge? What are the duties and responsibilities expected of you?
They will list many things. Don’t be intimidated if you don’t possess all the qualities or experience, the most important thing is your willingness to learn. Even if you only have 60% of what they’re looking for, apply for it still.
Remember your education, experience and knowledge has led you up to this point.
If you don’t?
Remember you have control on how to improve.
