JOB SEARCH:



This is the biggest challenge at a new place. Try to use family and friends as 85% for jobs are hidden and these jobs are only for people having good networking (public relation). There are so many non-profit agencies to help you in your job preparation and search. They give training regarding job search, but mostly they don't have any influence on employers. There are employment agencies to arrange a job for you ( mostly survival jobs). They get their share from the bread.
If you want to attempt for professional status in Canada, Please contact professional body of respective profession in the respective province.
