What is the best way to apply for jobs in Canada while in the UAE?

What is the best way to apply for jobs in Canada while in the UAE?

There is no way to apply for work in Canada before you have arrived with a valid visa. Canada is a country full of well-educated job seekers. Companies just don't hire from abroad.

You must first immigrate. If you are young and well educated, this process could be quick. Start here:

Immigrate as a skilled worker through Express Entry

Now, if after ten minutes or so you didn't pass 430 points, forget about the fast-track entry, you can't qualify. Continue here:

Do you want to come to Canada or extend your stay?

I found a job in Canada while working in Qatar, and had all the circumstances in place when I moved to Canada.

  1. He had a system for finding work. I checked my RSS feeds and job search emails every morning and created a short list.
  2. I had a standard application package in Google Docs that I could quickly edit, including cover letter, CV, and references in one document.
  3. I submitted a lot of requests.
  4. I clearly indicated when I would be returning to Canada and why I would be moving.
  5. I concentrated on contract positions.

  6. I did not follow up on applications until I was invited for an interview. I just searched and found out that I ended up sending 58 application packets, got 8 interviews, and got 1 job offer.

I think you should read the response written by Mr. Bengt Lindvall in which he has fully and precisely mentioned the whole process for living and working in Canada. I think it is almost impossible to get a job offer from an employer in Canada if you are applying from outside of Canada. The method is to apply for a PR and consequently you have to land in Canada with a PR, then there are channels to apply for jobs.

From the UAE you can initiate the public relations process and the links are provided by Mr. Bengt. This entire process takes time and depends on the points you will earn during your Canadia assessment.

You do not. There are regulations that make it VERY DIFFICULT, if not impossible, to get a job in Canada when applying from outside the country.

Unless you have world-class experience ... and I'm talking about a recognized and leading expert in your field, in which case you wouldn't be asking this question on Quora ... it's impossible to get a job in Canada from outside of Canada. And so ...

To hire someone from outside of Canada, the employer must obtain a positive Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) showing that no one in Canada can do that job. This is MANDATORY… it is not optional.

You do not. There are regulations that make it VERY DIFFICULT, if not impossible, to get a job in Canada when applying from outside the country.

Unless you have world-class experience ... and I'm talking about a recognized and leading expert in your field, in which case you wouldn't be asking this question on Quora ... it's impossible to get a job in Canada from outside of Canada. And so ...

To hire someone from outside of Canada, the employer must obtain a positive Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) showing that no one in Canada can do that job. This is MANDATORY… it is not optional.

This regulation gives workers already in Canada priority for available jobs. (It is as if the Canadian government is trying to act in the best interest of Canadians and those already in the country.)

The requirements for an LMIA cost the employer at LEAST three months of time ... and advertising costs that will vary ... because the employer has to widely advertise the position in Canada for one month.

I posted national job ads for a previous employer and that can easily cost thousands of dollars. If the employer receives applications from Canadians, of whom there are 36 million, more than half of whom have college degrees, the employer has no reason to hire outside of the county.

If the employer does not receive candidates, before hiring outside of Canada, the employer must apply for an LMIA from Employment and Social Development Canada. Processing this takes two months. The fee is $ 1,100 Canadian.

The employer then has to wait for the job applicant's (temporary) or PR (permanent) work permit to be approved, which will be a MINIMUM of six months and easily take a year or more.

So we are talking about a delay of at least a year and possibly two more years before the out-of-county worker can even begin work. So for example, if a restaurant needs a cook, it will simply hire someone who is already in Canada and who is legally qualified to work in Canada.

There are many qualified Canadian applicants, those born here and those who have already immigrated to Canada and can legally work in Canada.

All of the above explains why it is so difficult for someone outside of Canada to get a job offer from a Canadian employer. Hiring outside of Canada is so time consuming and expensive that most Canadian employers don't even look at an application outside of the county.

When I was helping with hiring from a previous employer, we simply deleted out-of-country applications without reading; We already had a ton of applications from people already in Canada, so there was no point in even opening out-of-county applicant submissions.

Many companies have their applicant tracking software configured to automatically remove out-of-county applications.

In addition to all the regulatory requirements, Canadian employers do not have the time or resources to attempt to verify references / qualifications from outside the country, especially those in an unfamiliar language. They are also unwilling to hire someone they have never met, as collaborative teamwork is an important part of Canadian workplaces.

Anyone who tells you otherwise, especially if they are asking you for money to find a job in Canada, is probably trying to scam you to get your money.

By the way, if you do not have a valid job offer when you apply to immigrate to Canada, you must have enough money available to stay in Canada while you relocate. The current amount for a single person is $ 12,669 CAD.

It depends on what you really want in Canada. Why are you considering leaving the UAE? What do you care more about? I had a reasonably secure job at a stable company in the UAE, which I quit right in the middle of a pandemic, to move to Canada, without a job offer. Why did I move from the United Arab Emirates? Because my only other option was my home country, which is in shambles, and even though my son was born in Dubai, he would have had to live with a temporary residence possibly for the rest of his life, and always be at the mercy of a visa. . sponsor of the right to live in the country.

It depends on what you really want in Canada. Why are you considering leaving the UAE? What do you care more about? I had a reasonably secure job at a stable company in the UAE, which I quit right in the middle of a pandemic, to move to Canada, without a job offer. Why did I move from the United Arab Emirates? Because my only other option was my home country, which is in shambles, and even though my son was born in Dubai, he would have had to live with a temporary residence possibly for the rest of his life, and always be at the mercy of a visa. . sponsor of the right to live in the country. Regardless of how long you have lived in Dubai, it is only a visa cancellation away from leaving that life, that is the reason why I moved with my family to Canada to land as permanent residents,

I don't have a fancy job in Canada, I have two part-time jobs and the government pays 70% of my son's daycare costs because I have a low income (in the UAE I had to pay 100% of the daycare expenses). I visited a registry office in Alberta and provided my state documents and ID, and signed up for universal health care. I visited a doctor 2 days ago for a consultation and did not have to pay a penny. Education in public schools is free from kindergarten to grade 12, was I going to get that in Dubai? No. Also, I don't have to worry about being asked to leave Canada because I no longer have a job, or being asked 30 days to find a new job or leave the country. Also, I am allowed to work for 2 different employers, or even 3 or 4, as long as you can manage the schedules; I couldn't do this in Dubai. After 3 years of living here,

So these were my reasons for moving. I am not saying that the UAE is a bad country, it was just not good for me and my needs. If I had a better backup option than my home country, I would probably still be working in Dubai today, because I would know that if things went wrong, I would have a good home country to return to. Just look at what happened since the pandemic broke out, a lot of people lost their jobs and had to leave the country, where did they go? I'd rather be able to say, "I lost my job in Dubai and the economic outlook is pretty bad, so let me go back to England for a while and see how things go in the future."

No one can help you because no one can "give" a job in Canada to someone outside of Canada at will. Government approval is required to hire a foreign national for a job in Canada.

Jobs in Canada are protected and priority is given to those already living in Canada. The only way an employer can hire a foreigner for a Canadian job is to PROVE through a costly and time-consuming process that no one in Canada can fill that job. That almost never happens because Canada has the best-educated workforce on the planet.

Canada has a very tight and competitive job market. The country was also pushed into recession by COVID-19. It can be difficult to find a job in Canada for people already in the country, as there are no job openings out there. From outside of Canada, it is almost impossible.

Sorry. Most people come to Canada by qualifying to immigrate and then finding work. The immigration instructions are here:

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.

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.

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!

I also work in the United Arab Emirates and have reflected on that option. Let me give you my views on this.

  • What made you come to the UAE in the first place in the first place?
  • The points you mentioned I suppose you would have known before coming to this country. If you don't, ignorance is no excuse.
  • While enjoying tax-free salary, savings repatriated to India every month
  • Like most Indians, people come to the UAE to pay their debts (90% surely come for this reason). Once the debts are paid, you enter modern slavery in Dubai (i.e. mortgages, credit cards,

I also work in the United Arab Emirates and have reflected on that option. Let me give you my views on this.

  • What made you come to the UAE in the first place in the first place?
  • The points you mentioned I suppose you would have known before coming to this country. If you don't, ignorance is no excuse.
  • While enjoying tax-free salary, savings repatriated to India every month
  • Like most Indians, people come to the UAE to pay their debts (90% insurance comes for this reason). Once the debts are paid, you enter modern slavery in Dubai (i.e. mortgages, credit cards, personal loans). Half of most people's salaries go to pay off these liabilities. Every year we take over / plan to get rid of them in another 2-3 years and continue living here. But it rarely happens that way, accumulating a few more along the way.
  • Getting back to your point that Western Passport gets two or three times, which is true and also a myth in some cases. I have friends who have UK, Canadian and Australian (basically Indian) passports that earn less than or equal to their Indian passport counterparts. So while I understand your point, that is not true in all respects.
  • If you look around at most companies in the UAE, you will have Indian top management earning far more than even Western passport holders talk about their salaries. This is my third job in the UAE and I have seen it in all 3 jobs.

What does Canada offer you or any other country? (These are my personal opinions)

Pros

  • The first thing you will hear is citizenship, public relations, education and health care (for family and children) as the four fundamental reasons to move to any country.
  • Culture is something that we assume that being in a good environment, closeness, between friendly, frank, respectful people, we tend to become more cultured. Somehow I think this is a personal attribute and how the person reacts / responds to other people and their personal values ​​is what matters at the end of the day.

Cons

  • Long flight hours (one of the main reasons not to go to Canada), the number of times I flew from the UAE to India on weekends to attend to my family's needs / emergencies at a cost of flight nominal, you could never do it in these western countries). I still attend Indian weddings / occasions which I still love on the weekend. The 30-day license is a pleasure when you can plan to visit India, get paid, and spend time with your family.
  • Cold weather (being born in South India, I can handle the heat of the UAE, but not the snow and cold weather)
  • Educational system (how many people do you know who have emigrated to these countries, who in fact make their children study in these free schools, you would see that most of them place them in private schools, so the very reason for free education is annulled ). The UAE has decent schools, as long as you are able to pay the school fees, there is no shortage of good schools.
  • Health Care Benefits, Has Anyone Told You About The Long Wait Times At These Free Facilities? What about the quality of the doctors? Are they the same as private hospitals that would steal your money? (In comparison, most of the companies in UAE offer medical insurance where you can get treatment as long as you are employed by a good employer here. The question of the quality of hospitals / doctors is not that great compared to India or anywhere else my question to you why stay in this country and bother about these when you are unhappy and enjoying tax free income? to India and enjoy good quality doctors / Ayurveda / Homeopathy and other alternative medicines)
  • Indian food (if you google the reason most NRIs return to India, one of the top 5 reasons to go back to India is to lose Indian food, personally that is the biggest reason why I love Dubai, where I don't miss Indian food at all, with the number of restaurants offering Indian food here)

All of the above are my personal views, I always see many people reflect on this while in the UAE. At the end of the day, you must decide what your priority is. I am a very happy UAE Resident Visa citizen and would continue to live with Visa for the rest of my life. I have no complaints about my salary and offer stiff competition even to my western counterparts (thanks to my education / qualification / skills) which makes me not worry about which passport I should have. I am too happy with my Indian passport, I share my problems about demotion, politics, happy voting for the country if I can fly and elect the government. Lastly, I don't miss India one bit while I'm here.

To my limited knowledge, there are only 2 possible answers to this question.
1) Yes, you can get a job in Canada that is also a high paying job, while you are in the UAE.
2) No, you cannot get a job in Canada while in the UAE.

OPTION 1
YES, YOU CAN GET A JOB IN CANADA WHILE IN DUBAI / UAE
For this to happen you must have a skill set that is so rare, a talent that is so amazing, and a profile that is so impressive that no recruiter at all the country You can find a single person in Canada even if you double or triple your salary. And your personal brand should be something so spectacular that

To my limited knowledge, there are only 2 possible answers to this question.
1) Yes, you can get a job in Canada that is also a high paying job, while you are in the UAE.
2) No, you cannot get a job in Canada while in the UAE.

OPTION 1
YES, YOU CAN GET A JOB IN CANADA WHILE IN DUBAI / UAE
For this to happen you must have a skill set that is so rare, a talent that is so amazing, and a profile that is so impressive that no recruiter at all the country You can find a single person in Canada even if you double or triple your salary. And your personal brand should be something so spectacular that if you joined the person's company, the company would show spectacular growth in its bottom line. So if you have that profile then of course why not? I am 100% that there are businessmen all over the world who are looking for such rare and exceptional talent that they are willing to pay a lot of money for that talent.

I can give you an example to test this theory. My friend Saji Oomen, a Keralite from South India who barely knew a word of English and whose personality matched that of a skinny, malnourished individual whose physical appearance was so bad, never had a single woman in his life, even at the age of 31. And he was so poor and so underpaid, sometimes he bought him groceries. And in return, he used to take care of my IT needs. At some point, when he realized he was going nowhere, we sat down to work on his personal branding. 5 years to that date, today it is based in Europe. One of the clients he met online, a fairly wealthy businessman for whom he worked as a freelancer, was so impressed with his services: he invited him to Europe and now he works for him permanently.

So in answer to your question, can you get a job in Canada while in Dubai, UAE? My answer is a resounding YES. And for this to happen, you must have the following in place:

  1. All your certification and documentation must be in order
  2. Your personal brand profile (resume, professional profile, online / offline presence) should be totally off the charts
  3. Your expertise, experience, and value that you can bring to the business should be so impressive that the business owner in Canada should feel: there is no one or no body like you in the entire country that matches your profile.

And if you can do it all, I firmly believe that you will be offered a job in Canada as long as you reside in Dubai / UAE or anywhere else in the world.

OPTION 2
NO, YOU CANNOT GET A JOB IN CANADA WHILE IN DUBAI / UAE
AND this is the case if you are just another regular employee offering normal, ordinary, everyday skills that any employer and business owner can get in Any part of the world. So the business owner's logic would be: why risk naming someone you've never met and can't test to figure out the claims made on the resume? Instead, it is better to employ local talent where the costs are much lower and the risks are even lower on any given day.

So if you are one of the many millions in this group, your chances of getting a job are impossible. Either you have to have a Canadian education or really good Canadian connections for this to happen.

Hope this answers your question my man. I wish you all the best in your quest to settle in one of the most wanted and loved countries in the world.

If it is. Unless you do these three things:

  1. Create a strong resume and LinkedIn profile
  2. Network the right way (this does NOT mean contacting recruiters)
  3. Customize every job application online

If you just passively toss your generic resume onto online job boards and cross your fingers hoping for a response, it will hardly ever happen.

I often hear people complain, "I am applying for 30 jobs a day and I get no response." Instead of spraying and praying, I personally applied for no more than 2-3 jobs per day with a strategic and specific focus, and ended up with three job offers in three weeks from

If you just passively toss your generic resume onto online job boards and cross your fingers hoping for a response, it will hardly ever happen.

I often hear people complain, "I am applying for 30 jobs a day and I get no response." Instead of spraying and praying, I personally applied for no more than 2-3 jobs per day with a strategic and specific focus, and ended up with three job offers in three weeks after landing in Canada.

Resume and LinkedIn

There is a cultural difference between how a resume is created in North America and Asia:

  • Personal data such as photographs, date of birth, sex, marital status are considered discriminatory and should be deleted
  • Resumes cannot be longer than six pages
  • Work experience cannot be read as a job description, where you simply list one task after another in bullet points. You must support each responsibility with context: quantitative or qualitative results of each responsibility.

Regarding their LinkedIn profile, 87% of recruiters (according to JobVite) review their LinkedIn profile.

  • You cannot copy and paste your resume into LInkedIn. Each role you had should tell a well-structured story with more personality.
  • Your photography must be professional. It is not a cropped image of you at a party.
  • Your title, professional summary should be packed with the right keywords in your industry.

Remember two important things:

  1. The goal of your resume is to get the job interview. Nothing else. So, keep track of all the tasks and responsibilities you've had, because recruiters will spend no more than 6-15 seconds deciding whether to read everything, and then no more than a minute after that to decide. yes call you Focus on content that is relevant to your target job
  2. Recruiters search for candidates on LinkedIn. Make sure your profile is All-Star and packed with keywords in title, summary, and role so that your profile will rank higher.

Network the right way

Someone once told me their networking strategy as follows:

“I started working in a network sending connection requests. However, most of the recruiters accepted my application and when I told them about my application, they told me that if my resume matched, someone would call me. Guess what nobody does. "

This is exactly what most people think networking is. Is not!

Networking is building mutually beneficial strategic relationships

Build: It takes work. It is something that you have to do daily as a habit. As a full-time job seeker, it is the most important activity of your day.

Strategic - You need to connect with the people who have the power and authority to hire you. Those are not recruiters. That's hiring managers in your industry who can be your future boss (1-3 levels). They are the ones who decide to give you the job. No recruiters. They are just part of the facilitation process.

Win-Win: If you use your network to take-take-take and ask-ask-ask, you will lose them. They are human beings and, just like you, they know when they are being used. Give back to your network as much as you receive.

Relationships: it is an ongoing process. If you connect with someone once and never follow up, they will forget you. It may never have connected at all. Don't connect with someone unless you are willing to commit to the relationship.

Your network may not have a job for you at the moment. But when they do, OR when they hear someone else in their network do it, you want them to remember you.

That is your goal of having a network. Then they remind you when the opportunity comes.

That won't happen unless you are building mutually beneficial strategic relationships with them. I am not suggesting that it is easy. It's challenging to have this mindset, especially when you're looking for a job.

As a job seeker, you might be wondering, "Why should I waste my time helping others when I'm the one who needs help?"

But deep down, I know you think the above makes common sense. Know that most people don't do this, and if you want to beat your competition, this is the way to do it.

Customize each job search application

Before moving to Canada, I created a 10-step process for each online job application.

Most people just submit their resumes to various job applications and complain that they don't get a response. So I thought there must be a different way.

After reading 8-10 books written by North American professional trainers, I created a 10-step job application process based on all of their collective wisdom.

The result?

I received 3 job offers just two weeks after landing. With a salary 70% higher than the market average.

Using the same 10-step process, I applied for vacancies internal to the organization, which was just as competitive.

Well guess what? It worked! And again.

Other tips for finding a job in Canada

Research how people have effectively searched for work and how they do the work required for each application. Here are some tips:

  • You can go to YouTube and search for "TedX Job Search" to learn how global professionals and successful job seekers found work effectively.
  • Want to see how your resume compares to the job description? Check JobScan.co and copy and paste the job description along with your uploaded resume to see what score you get.
  • Want to really stand out from the competition? Create an online resume like I did, connelvalentine.com, and reference this site in your resume, cover letter, and post-interview thank you note.
  • Subscribe to job search podcasts like the Canadian Job Search Academy podcast, The Voice of Job Seekers, and Mac's List on your iPhone or iTunes to learn about current trends and practical job search strategies you can use.

The purpose of this answer is not to state that it will take three weeks to find a job for everyone.

Each person has their own challenges based on their goals and their industry. This response was to raise awareness on how to take a more active approach in your job search strategy.

A direct job… Arriving in the country on a Saturday and starting work on Monday?

IT IS NOT HAPPENING.

Other than COVID-19 and the looming recession, you CANNOT just "move" here.

There is a process. It's called IMMIGRATION.

You have to qualify and be invited to compete for the "openings" available in Canada.

The process is really simple.

  • Be in the right age group
  • Have a HIGH education (master's or higher)
  • Speak English or French fluently.
  • Have at least $ 13,000 in the bank WITHOUT NUMBERING

More than a MILLION people from around the world want to immigrate to Canada each year. Less than 30% make the cut.

Those chances are very slim. If you raised a very specific skill that Canadian citizens, public relations, or an open night work permit holder don't have, the company could hire you. You have to get approval from LIMA, which is not easy to do. Canada needs people and immigrants, but remember that Canadians are conservative (in the right way) by nature.

Because Canadian employers want to give a face-to-face interview before making a decision. Unlike in India, where the thaw interviews are mostly based on your skills, here in Canada it focuses more on behavioral skills. Therefore, you may find masters and PhDs driving taxis while graduates and graduates work in good positions. That being said, this is not always the case. It is always "attitude matters". Can you blend in well with the culture here? If so, fine, but if you plan to come earn some money and be within your own community, then you can settle for less.
