How should I start applying for a job in Canada from India?

"You shouldn't" and you can't.

It is impossible, 100.00% IMPOSSIBLE to get a job in Canada from outside of Canada.

No employer hires from abroad. Anyone who says something different is a liar and a cheater and only looking for your money.

The law says that only people in Canada, with a permanent residence visa AND a SIN card (social security number), can be hired.

You can only start looking for work after you have arrived.

There is an express entry program, but very few are approved. You MUST score more than 440 points in this calculation:

Comprehensive Classification System (CRS) Criteria - Quick Entry

If you didn't get that number, you can't apply under those rules.

You must have the equivalent of approximately CAD 15,000 (~ 775,000 rupees) in your bank account before you can apply for immigration under any program. Start here:

Immigrate to canada

It takes between one year and five years to obtain a visa, depending on your age and education, among many factors.

A visa costs around CAD 2,000 per person and

You will not get a job in Canada without a work / permanent residence (PR) permit, no employer will give you a job without interviewing you face to face. Please don't waste your time and money.

You must first apply for and obtain Canadian permanent residency and then enter Canada as a RP. Before going to Canada, you can post your resume to Canadian recruiters who are hiring in your field of work. You can also post your resume with some selected employers / companies in Canada and provide your contact details such as phone number and address. People often use the address and phone number of their friends.

You can also post your resume with some selected employers / companies in Canada and provide your contact details such as phone number and address. People often use the address and phone numbers of their friends (who are already established in Canada).

You need to improve your communication and presentation skills in English and be prepared to take lower-level positions or even work unpaid jobs to gain Canadian experience.

Good luck.

First, know all the procedures to be carried out for immigration to Canada. Find out how you are doing, that is, how many points you are getting.

Here your PhD, years of relevant experience, age, and the top bands you can get in your IeILETS English language exams (which is mandatory for everyone) that you can acquire.

After you have obtained the highest possible score, you can request your RP. If your overall score is lower, it will take you longer to earn your RP. So aim for the highest score on the ILETS exams. Band 7-8 is preferable.

Once you get your PR, start applying right away. Those with PR in Canada can wait

Once you get your PR, start applying right away. Those with PR in Canada can expect to get some response after 6 to 12 months. Until then, you must apply and do odd jobs in Canada.

The procedure is standard as in India.

Browse Canadian documents online (since you are applying from within India), look on some websites like Craigslist or kijiji where people post for requirements and also others post to know their availability for certain jobs by making their profiles.

But your chances are slim as most employers are looking for immediate affiliates and may not be willing to wait until you complete the visa application process. Also, if you are a registered professional in India (doctor, pharmacist, physiotherapist, engineer, etc.). chances that your title won't

Also, if you are a registered professional in India (doctor, pharmacist, physiotherapist, engineer, etc.). There is a possibility that your title will not be recognized under Canadian standards and you may need to update according to Canadian standards. This will take time if you are not a PR and it will also be expensive as you will pay the fees of an international student. Better apply after getting your PR.

I hope this helps.

First of all, it is very important that you research Canada, its provinces and cities on climate, culture, community and travel to prioritize your options for permanent living. Before looking for work, you should assess the job demands and prospects for your specific occupation in Canada.

Canada is a huge country and there are specific regions with higher demand for specific occupations. It is important to find out the provinces and cities where your occupation has the highest demand and the lowest supply.

You must understand the nature of the Canadian job market, ie the open and hidden job market and seasonal demands to develop an effective job search strategy.

You should also connect with labor recruiters or career consultants in your field to learn more about the industry and sector and the region-specific direct and implicit job requirements.

* Step 2: Look for a job from outside (INDIA) Canada: —-

Prepare a detailed job search strategy, as simply posting your resume on job boards may not help.

Create a detailed career plan according to your areas of interest and job or industrial demands.

Research and connect with many relevant companies and individuals in trade and associations.

Review the National Occupational Classification (NOC) with titles, main duties, and job requirements for general job requirements.

Find out the business and licensing requirements in your profession or field.

Check job boards for positions and job requirements thoroughly and compare your resume to the Canadian applicant's resume / profiles available on Linkedin or other Canadian job resources.

Get your credential evaluation from accredited agencies.

Prepare a Canadian resume highlighting your achievements and removing non-relevant personal data.

Prepare your personal marketing plan, which includes networking, social media marketing, cold calling, and getting referrals.

* Step 3: Secure a genuine job offer: -

This is a critical step, if you have generated interest for Canadian employers and there is a chance of getting an offer.

The employer may have to make sure that they cannot find a Canadian and that proper steps have been taken for recruitment before making an offer.

In this document, your research for the Canadian labor market will be helpful only if you have applied for the occupations with the highest demand and lowest supply.

If the employer has been unable to find a suitable candidate for a period of time, your application may create a win-win situation.

If the employer still has some apprehensions, your exceptional language skills, social skills, and connections with local contacts can help you show confidence and a quick transition in Canada.

Here, persistence and regular contact with the employer will help you show your keen interest in.

You can apply for a work or immigration permit as soon as you receive a job offer.

P.S; (sharing Canadian immigration news)

With the world economy falling by the day and the economic crisis increasing, Canada's youth are facing a serious unemployment problem. According to a national survey, the unemployment rate has increased by 7.2%, which is cause for concern. The main cause is Indian immigrants in Canada. On the one hand, when young people from Canada are well qualified for a job, agencies prefer to hire Indian immigrants in Canada. In the long term, this will increase the problems of youth, which is not acceptable at all.

How does the employment of Indian immigrants in Canada make young people suffer?

The current job structure is degrading the value of local youth. By providing employment to Indian immigrants, it affects not only the youth but also the family. They have spent a great fortune to secure the future of their son.

The government should create more jobs for unemployed youth or should stop employing Indian immigrants in Canada. They (the government) should take an example from other countries like the US that give preference to their citizens over immigrants, which is technically correct.

I am not a lawyer or an immigration consultant trying to get your money. I'm just an ordinary Canadian ... but I'm happy to share what I know and maybe save you some money.

What you need to do, and it's FREE, is go to the Government of Canada immigration website and research your options for working in Canada and for emigrating.

All the information you need is available FREE on the website, including a questionnaire that you can fill out to find out if you qualify to immigrate. The questionnaire is not a formal request, it is for your information only and the results do not go to anyone.

If you decide you want to apply to work or move to Canada, just follow the advice on the website. The application process is designed to be transparent with no hidden gimmicks; all requirements explained; and allowing people to complete their own applications without hiring immigration lawyers or experts. Save your money, do it yourself.

In general, it is difficult to find a job in Canada from outside the country because Canadian employers cannot hire anyone outside of Canada without first proving that they cannot find someone in Canada to do the job. This takes time and costs money, which is why most employers do not attempt to hire people from outside of Canada. (Anyone who tells you they can get you a guaranteed job in Canada is possibly running a scam.)

Good luck.

Finding work in Canada is definitely not child's play and that's also when you don't have the right to legally work in the country. I know many people who have already obtained public relations status in Canada, but still cannot get a job while in their home country.

Well, let's understand how it works. There is no shortage of new immigrants desperately seeking work just to get started and get into the swing of things. At first, they don't even care about survival jobs. So whatever and wherever they get something, they just don't lose it and welcome it with open arms and a smile on their face.

At first, they don't even care about survival jobs. So whatever and wherever they get something, they just don't lose it and welcome it with open arms and a smile on their face.

With that being said, there are many employers who feel overwhelmed and reciprocate their intention to have resources for workaholics and hire them to meet the needs of their organization. By doing this they actually reduce the total cost of hiring people from an Outland destination and that is why no one (in most cases or say 99%) wants to play by the Canadian government labor rules and make a extra effort to recruit people on your boards and that too wasting unnecessarily.

Now put yourself in the shoes of an employer and think: if you had to hire 10 people in your own company with the best skills in a global market. Would you prefer people who can physically walk into your office and show their intelligence and can start work immediately without visa complications or a person who is sitting in a far away place with various visa complications to meet?
And keep in mind that all of those things must be properly taken care of by the employer in accordance with their strict labor market regulations.

So be very practical about it and work towards something that makes the most sense. To wrap it all up, of course there are some successful work visa grants, but they are the rarest of feats. If you can make your way to make your way among those lucky few. You can always push yourself and do your best!

Good luck!

Hi there. This is not an easy question and there are many complications. But I will try to point out some possible ways that can help.

1) Do your research. What skills can you offer a Canadian employer? Which companies can use your skills. Do a quick internet scan to find the companies you want to work for.

2) Where do you want to live? Canada is a huge country with great climatic and cultural variations. Do you have any preferences? Can you merge this preference with n. 1 previous?

3) Do you have contacts in Canada who can help you: family or friends? You will need all the help you can g

2) Where do you want to live? Canada is a huge country with great climatic and cultural variations. Do you have any preferences? Can you merge this preference with n. 1 previous?

3) Do you have contacts in Canada who can help you: family or friends? You will need all the help you can get. Ask for their advice.

4) Have you consulted the Canadian immigration website to understand all the legal aspects of immigration to Canada? It takes a lot of time and a lot of money to make the switch. Do you have the resources available to make such a move? Begin the application process immediately as approval takes many months.

5) If you can narrow down your adventure by answering questions 1-3, I strongly suggest you visit Canada to check it out. Do not tell immigration or customs officials what your intention is, you are only visiting. As you visit the cities you would like to live in, you will also visit the companies you want to work for. Arrange this ahead of time, if possible. But carry copies of your CV, references, academic / college records, and other documents that you can distribute to potential employers. Don't be ashamed to knock on doors when you get here.

6) After you return home, you will be better prepared to make final decisions about your move. But you will have more than enough time to continue the process while you wait for your materials from the Canadian immigration office.

Good luck!

The difficulty of any task depends on personal skills and level of education. Therefore, it is not possible to make a scale of difficulty. However, you can calculate how difficult it will be based on the points that make up the difficulty level:

  1. Specialization field: Canada has a very small scope of jobs if you are not in the specialized field that requires labor. eg. If you work in the teaching industry, you won't find much success right away, as the teaching profession has the necessary number of professionals in its bucket to meet the requirements. However, science and techno

If you work in the teaching industry, you won't find much success right away, as the teaching profession has the necessary number of professionals in its bucket to meet the requirements. However, science and technology, construction, nursing are some examples where, if you are from origin, you will have the opportunity quite quickly.
  2. Expenses: more expenses you have will increase the level of difficulty for you, since each field has a variable payment scale and, therefore, it is difficult to predict the amount of money you will earn and make the month with it.
  3. Location - Not every location has every job available, therefore being in the right place at the right time is very important. For ex. As of now, Alberta is in trouble because oil is not doing well and its more or less oil-based economy and job market are affected by the oil sector. Toronto / Montreal / Vancouver are more diverse and have more opportunities.
  4. Dependencies: If you have a single source of income and a large family, you will feel the pressure of lower wages again.

The views mentioned above are personal and will change from person to person. I have tried to categorize the points in a general sense.
