When immigrants come to Canada, one of their first challenges is to find meaningful employment in the field of industry that they desire. There are lots of factors that may help advance or limit these newcomers. These include, geography, education, and the esteem to which their qualifications are held in Canada to name a few. A lot of these aspects are out of their control, at least temporarily. One thing that they can control is how best they understand their own personality and work styles.
As with any job search, the first place to begin is with a resume and LinkedIn profile. In order to adequately present yourself here, you will need to fully understand your strengths. Not only will you have to identify the areas that you excel in but you will need to be able to express your positive attributes in a way that makes Canadian employers notice you.
A great many career paths in Canada require highly developed social and communication skills. How do you best communicate your ideas? Is it one on one, or in group environments? Are you easy going or direct and straight to the point when expressing yourself? These are all very important aspects of your personality to consider as they will have an effect on how you choose to present yourself in an interview. If an employer is looking for an outgoing and friendly person, then you need to know if you are a good fit for the role.
While you are trying to make sure that potential employers see you as a good fit for the company, it is vital that you also consider if the company is the right fit for you. Are you looking for a workplace culture that is vibrant and social? Or would you prefer a more serious and corporate environment?
All of these things must be considered to give you the best possible chance of starting a long term career in Canada.
