As soon as the month finishes, I usually check my statistics to understand the trend towards How to Live in Canada. Global economics around the word is responsible in part for job cuts right? Can you imagine which post was the most visited post at How to Live in Canada during November? If not, I can list to you in order:
- Work as a firefighter in Toronto
- Work as a teacher in Ontario
- How to find a job in Canada with no Canadian experience
- Ontario Public Sector salary disclosure 2008
- Salary in Canada: How much should I receive?
Looking at the posts above:
- Two of them were related to professions that usually you get a good salary in Canada, right?
- Another one where people are looking for information about salaries
- In addition, another one where people are interested to know how much the government is paying to its employees
- And to finish the list, if you’re an immigrant, how can you find a job in Canada? You’re qualified (sometimes overqualified, but you don’t have experience to work in Canada).
It is interesting, isn’t it? If you still have your job, good for you. If you are not working, don’t get upset as this is not affecting only you – there are a lot of people without jobs and I know this is difficult – specially during Christmas and New Year.
If this is your case, what have you done to find a job in Canada?
- Have you updated your Resume?
- Did you tell your friends that you’re looking for a job?
- Did you apply for Employment Insurance?
- Did you cut your costs at home? Did you call your cable provider, phone provider, credit card company?
Those are some of the items that you should do. What else? Any ideas?
