Career Coaching Tips

Talk about your international experience

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.
