Maybe one day you will look for a job in Canada. It could be because you’re not happy with yours or you’re just entering on the market for your first job or even you immigrated to Canada and this is going to be your first job as well. There are a lot of differences between the items above, but I can assure you that one of the most important items is your language skills.
In addition to your language skills, the experience that you have. However, do you know what employers are looking for? If you don’t you should look into this. Your field could be ok now, but in the future it could not be.
Let’s think about the automotive sector. 10 or 15 years ago, this area was increasing as more and more plants were created in small cities. Today, we can see that this is not the case anymore. The results? Job cuts. So, was it a good idea to start your career on the automotive field 10 years ago? Of course it was. However, maybe this is not the case today.
Employers are looking for soft skills, the skills that you can show to them that you’re able to communicate, solve problems, work with others, etc. In addition, your technical skills, specially to your job requirements. You need to have both of them. I’d say sometimes it is more important soft skills than technical skills.
Now your question is: how do I know the skills necessary for my profession? If you don’t know or if you’re planning to chance careers, there are some useful websites that you can use:
- Service Canada Job Futures
- Ontario Job Futures
- Alberta Learning Information Services
- Saskatchewan Job Futures
- Manitoba Job Futures
- Prince Edward Island Job Futures
- British Columbia Work Futures
As you can see from the list above, every province in Canada has their own website dedicated to jobs in Canada. I’ve listed only some of them. If you want to see more, just go to Google and search for your specific province.
If you’re not sure, why don’t you choose 2 or 3 provinces and them compare your field? Remember: find a job in Canada is already job! It takes time, research, patience, skills and luck Do what you’re supposed to. The rest is consequence. Do you agree with me?
