Australian graduate

Hi Guys,
Im from Australia and looking at moving to Toronto early 2011. I have the working visa and am all set to go, but the only thing im concerned with is finding work. I graduated with a marketing degree and have since had 4 years of sales experience. I am wanting to know if my degree and experienced would be recognised in Toronto, as I have heard foreign credentials are sometimes not looked at favourably. Thanks for your help.

Welcome on board dids ;)

I hope that other members will contribute to your discussion soon.

Regards

Hey Dids

Your post was put up a little while ago, have you moved here already? How did you go with work?

Cheers, Trudy

Hi Trudy,

Yeah I moved here in the middle of February. At first I found it difficult and stressful finding work. I was getting a lot of calls but wasn't finding anything. It took me about 2 months but I finally found something so was pretty happy about that.

Hi Dids,
Glad to hear you managed to find a job. I myself am thinking of moving to Toronto, Canada in March 2012. I also have a degree in Marketing and 3 years experience working in the field. Do you have any advise for me on how to start looking and where to start looking for a job? Would you advise going through a recruitment agency or just applying myself? and is there much point in me looking before I go or will I have more luck once I'm there? Sorry for the millions of questions, just not sure where to start.

Thanks,
Dominique

Hello Dominique and welcome to Expat.com!

Maybe that you should start a new thread on Toronto forum for better visibility.
