Should I start applying for jobs before I arrive in Canada?

Viewed 2222 Times 0 Comments

Here are the facts – employers want people who can start working within a short period of time. In Canada the notice period is two weeks so that gives you some idea of how quickly employers want employees to start work. Even if you did qualify for a job, employers will not hire you as you have not yet arrived in Canada and you will take time to settle into the country as well. Lastly is the fact that you will not be using the Canadian style of resume so you may not even get to the interview stage. Most times I advise against it as I have yet to see someone actually getting a job before arriving!
