Before getting to Toronto, most immigrants try as much as possible to cultivate some form of professional contacts that could help them in their job search, in settling down, in their workplace or serve as their supervisors if their coming to Toronto is to further their education. Those who were unable to develop a professional network before coming to Toronto try to do so as soon as they get to Toronto. Others, too, start developing their network after getting a job. Whether you intend to build a professional network before coming to Toronto or after you must have arrived, these are some ways to go about it.
