Career Coaching Tips

Talk about your international experience

My best advice to show your international experience to an employer would be to network,
network, network. Connecting with other professionals working in the industry gives you an
opportunity to explain how your professional experience, if not exactly the same, is very similar to someone with local experience.

Job search resources

Obtain career advice from career development professionals, rather than from friends

Unsolicited advice comes easily when we start a new stage in our lives. For example, moving to a new place, becoming parents and looking for work. For this last one you will attract people's opinion especially if you are a newcomer to Canada.

Volunteering to build your professional network

The Canadian Immigrant Magazine posted a great article on how volunteering helps with your job search, especially when you are a newcomer. 

"They say 'Your network is your net worth.' If you’re looking for career opportunities, volunteering can be a great way of building your network and increasing your knowledge of the job market'" reads the article.
