First of all, congratulations on getting an interview. I’m sure that you did great. You can see this as a very encouraging sign that you are employable and that your resume and cover letter are doing their job of getting your foot in the door.
ding work anywhere in the world can be a challenging experience, when I first came to Canada all those years ago, I fully expected my job hunt in Canada to be difficult. What I did not expect was to find that I had to radically change a lot of my behaviours to adapt to Canada’s working environment.
To master this will take time, I’ve been in Canada for years and I’m still learning. However, there are a few things that you can do to prepare for the job hunt and give you the edge over your fellow immigrants as we are all hungry for our dream job in Canada.
Hiring managers see a lot of resumes every day. You should spend some time thinking about how you can make yours stand out. I always try to make sure that there is something in my Canadian style resume that makes it unique and memorable. Of course I always make sure that I cover off everything that is listed in job description in terms of professional requirements too. I just like to add my hobbies and interests to make me seem more like a person and less of just a list of achievements and work history.
