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.
Applying for work in Canada as a newcomer can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. It is very important that you stay positive and do not let yourself be worn down though a lack of response to the applications that you submit. Or the rejection of not being able to advance through to the second stage of interviews. You should view every one of these as a way to improve your job search ability so that the next time you apply for a job, you have an even greater chance of getting it.
