Relocating to a foreign country is a significant move, including both risk and benefits for you and your family. I assume you can find this article helpful for your own work search and career development.

Assessing The Job Market

There are different sources of checking the job market and employment rates through the internet and government reports.
You should start doing your homework before you come to Canada and the best source of knowledge I can suggest is your own social network. People of your own culture , for example, who have already moved to Canada, and civic groups of Canada.
Look at the job market provincially and I would say the top cities for migration are Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.
In my own experience prior to coming to Canada, I asked my architect association in the Philippines if there were chapter associations in Canada and at that time there was a chapter in Alberta.
I contacted this chapter through email and the member from those chapter gave me a lot of information on the job market, and that’s the reason why I chose Alberta as a province and that’s how I got started in researching the job market.

Assessing Your Skills

your skillset should match what employers are looking for. Reality is there are some skills that would need upgrading whether it’s in communication, social skills, and even technical skills.
It is very possible that the learning curve is huge and that you could have to take some courses or do some self-learning and also in preparation you should review your resume, the style of it and the presentation.
There’s no need to put photos or your age on it and one thing that you can try is cold-calling employers.

You can call an employer and ask if there’s a job that you can apply for and the employer will say what their requirements are and the skills and what they’re looking for.
So my advice before you start doing that is that you should write out a script that you can read before you call the employer.
In my experience, cold calling actually worked for me that is how I got my first job working for an architect, and prior to cold-calling the employer, a friend mentioned that this certain architect is looking to hire someone.
So I called him up and fortunately for me, I got an interview and I got hired.

Research The Potential Employer

I find very important.
You have to assess the employer profile, and for big corporations, they have an HR and they’re normally diverse.
Smaller businesses advantage is that you’ve got easier access to the people who are hiring, and my experience from a smaller company, you have a better chance of success in being hired but that also depends on the employer.
So what I will do is look at their website and I check the employees’ ethnicity if there’s someone out there that looks like you then you’ve got a good chance of getting hired if not then I think you should not waste your time in talking to this employer.

Communication Is Key

Your communication skills should really be proficient both verbal and written, and you need to be able to really communicate in English very well so you have to make sure that your accent is understandable.
My personal understanding is that my ability in this language has helped me a lot, and I think that's one of the biggest reasons I got hired right away.
But, I'll give you a piece of tip, too. Often I make my interviewer laugh when I go for interviews and I hope this helps as well
