Getting a JOb is Not easy in Canada :(

Hello  Pals !

I am searching so many websites for jobs in Canada I registered on many Canadian companies website for job hunt . But what I am getting is just mails in that they are mentioning me :


" Thanks for registering to our company's website and we will get back to you "

But no one is coming back not even there spam mails :(

I logged in Indeed.ca workingincanada.ca landingjobs.com jobsoffer.com and many individual websites :

On one post I saw a person mentioning about how to get a job and how to search the job online .

What we are doing is simply:
1) registering to the job portals
2)uploading our profile
3)Uploading our resume or CV
4)applying for the job offers
5) waiting for there response
6) Waiting ended up with No positive response .

Thar's how it goes normally and some special cases people gets some calls and may be got selected .

-- But at the same time there is another way of applying to the job offers :

I did try with the other way too and got some responses . But the thing is I don't have the adequate Job experience as they are asking for and so I am still in search of job as per my experience .

I don't want to waste more years just to increase the year of experience here in my job . I want to explore more as per the new world .That is why I like to come to Canada for my future experience and to explore my self .


Please let me know if any of you Canadian guy has any thing for me on this :

If you can suggest me or refer me for some vacany it would be great for me :)

Cheers :

Hello dubey_vd,

What kind of job are you searching for? Have you looked for the job offers in the Jobs in Canada section or even try your luck by posting an advert in the same section?

If not, I invite you to do so.

Thank you,
Best Regards,
Naomi.

Aggresively contact recruitment agencies.

@dubey_vd

By reading your post, I cannot help but notice the immaturity that you have shown.

No. 1, you did not mention in what field or job area you are in. This helps to narrow down for readers what kind of job market you particularly find hard penetrating in.

No. 2 you ask readers online for them to recommend jobs to you. Without knowing the answer to No. 1, how can you expect an answer to No. 2.

I somehow wish expat.com has a way to screen the intelligence of its members.

thank you for correcting me !!

Yes, I am looking for an Oracle DBA job. I have almost 2 years of experience as of now.
After having some basic hands-on experience and working in an MNC company, i would like to move further to enhance my skills.

If you have any information regarding this please let me know.

Cheers !

One thing that worked for me very well was that after applying to a job posting online advertised with an agency, i would contact the agency and speak to the agent marketing that position. This would confirm your interest and give him/her (agent) the opportunity to explore your skills & experience (as well as over the phone verbal communication) further. Its an effective approach because it gives you that chance to professionally market yourself in such a way that they would recommend you for other future opportunities.

One thing that is telling is that you are not presently in Canada. That is difficult and most recruiters are not interested in sponsoring you to come over here given you're only posses common and generic IT skills. Unless you posses very niche and extremely state of the art technology and computer science (like machine learning, NLP, genetic algorithm), it will be an uphill battle to get you here.

There's a website called techmeabroad (google it, I am not going to spoon feed you). Basically its the place where companies (mostly start ups), post positions which they will be willing to sponsor folks. Have a look at the jobs there and read the skills they require, then you get an idea what it is you need to beef up before applying.

All the best.

Hi, I am interested to come to Canada, I am experience in hospitaliy field. Anyone could gave me a website in regards to hospitality industry in Canada? thanks.

Like most Western countries, Canada is experiencing economic slowdown due to the falling oil prices and the resultant falling Canadian dollars which in turn hurts the manufacturing sector. While some sectors of the economy is shielded from this, all in all finding a job without the often requested 'Canadian experience'' from overseas is very unlikely as most companies, if not all, are required to first source all available positions within Canada. And this is the law. So my advice to you is to immigrate here, hopefully you have the means to sustain yourself while searching for a job in you field. Be prepared to take an entry position. Good luck in your search.

Hello dubey_vd,

You know, a quick Google search about "unemployment in Canada" and another one about "how many immigrants come to Canada each year?" would probably given you a fairly accurate picture of the problems you would be facing in finding a job here.

Canada, like most of the world was hard hit by the 2008 US sub-prime crisis and was only starting to recover when the world oil prices started to drop. So even if you were in Canada to do a "boots on the ground" job search, you would still be fighting an uphill battle. You're at a significant disadvantage for a number of reasons:

1.  Due to present economic conditions and unemployment figures you are not only competing with hundreds (if not thousands) of other newcomers to Canada, but also with unemployed Canadians for every job vacancy that exists.

2.  Since you're not in Canada you can't personally attend job interviews and that's not going to sit well with prospective employers either. You'd need one Hell of a great CV to compensate for that.

3.  Since you aren't in the country and don't presently have a visa and permission to work, that's going to drop you down to the bottom of the list too. Employers aren't going to go through all the hassles of sponsorship if they can find somebody locally and avoid the additional headaches.

4.  Regardless of your profession, all employers are going to be looking for a combination of educational qualifications and job experience. You can have any degree that you can think of, but if you don't have some significant work experience in a field related to that degree you won't make the short list either.

Oh, and those websites you've checked out and gotten your information about how to go about conducting job searches online, they're mostly intended for people who are already here in Canada their tips aren't all that relevant for those who are still abroad, since that poses a whole host of other problems.

So, at least now you know why you're not getting too many responses.

Cheers,
James

Hi James

i got your point and its really true in my case .

As you mentioned i should search on the google for two things you mentioned for Canada , like how many are going every year and how many are getting the jobs .

So according to your facts i may not be getting any job after coming down there , because of the job recessions and high competition. Only for that reason to avoid this problem I am trying to get the job before landing to Canada or overseas .

I will try to get the Job if possible otherwise i will try to build more powerful CV :)

Gracias

Finding a canadian job from overseas is no easy walk in the park but then again its not entirely impossible.

Make sure that you are in the process of immigrating to Canada. You can not just turn up to Canada without the right immigration status and expect to find work.

Whats worked for me in the past were a few things:

1. In your cover letter/note, preferably towards the end, highlight that you have begun the process of immigration to Canada.

2. Register with magicjack on a Canadian number. $40 annually. Include that number in your contact details of your resume/CV

3. Some employers are open to phone and skype interviews.

4. If you have already immigrated to Canada but are currently residing overseas, be sure to inform your prospective employer about your legal immigrant status. (SIN also helps)

5. Include a canadian address of some sort from a friend or relative.

These few pointers do make a difference.

Get a job at a global company in your current country. Gain experience. Apply for a similar job in Canada at the same company.
