Please stay away from people who ask money for getting you employment. Trust me, it doesn't exist - at least in NA. Also, there are people looming around to rip the newly immigrants as they are the more vulnerable kind to shed money when promised a job(understandable).

My advise to anyone who is new to the country - keep a positive approach, have faith in yourself, and begin each day with a promise to yourself. The promise being, this is the day. Trust me it works, as I was new to the country 4 years ago as well. I had to come across so much negativity, but I never let it take over my positivity. I must say, the end result is decent if not handsome.

One more thing - have a little patience.

We should trust the reader to make their own judgment. I personally find TK's views direct and useful, and I also find MR's points useful and thought provoking.The Charcha section would be poorer without either of them.

It does not mean I agree with one or the other. It helps get a balanced view of two different sets of experiences. And that is what most people come here for, information, viewpoints, direction, and support.

To the main point, I think these workshops for employment are helpful. They give an insight to what it takes to succeed here. Do you have a customized resume and cover letter? Do you know how to network with perfect strangers and not ask for a job but get an idea of ways they could help in getting one? How to dress for formal meetings?

It is a good refresher at the least, as you might be a bit rusty with these skills, maybe not having used them for job search for a while.

Good luck.

You come across as someone obsessed with race and cultural issues. You yourself display so much racism and bias against others and then complain that others are racist against you.

hidden job is not a myth- it is getting a job through references/contacts/netoworking. Why do you perpetuate this theory of yours that all people in canada are racist and looking only to hire canadian borns. That is simply not true.




I strongly object ......... We are posting our views here and should not pass judgment on others .... Why do we need to go into personal comments when we can simply provide our views and experience ...... ?

All our experiences are different and equally valid ...... a person who gets a job in a week would have a different perception from a person who is in odd jobs even after 2 years ...... both of them right and acceptable ...... one should not try to undo the other .......... a careful reader should be able to assimilate things ....

My advice is - hope for the best but prepare for the worst ....... Do not be swayed by the negativity you are going to see around yourself .. esp with new immigrants -------- work as per a plan ....... survive first and then excel in career........... do not stick to odd jobs ............ with 2 partners an ideal strategy would be for one to work and pay for the bills and the other to stay at home and upgrade to the working environment / do courses etc ..... and then come to a more career oriented job ...... then the other partner can have roles reversed ......

Please be smart enough to see through scams ......... never pay any money for recruitment / courses professed by agencies etc and avoid pyramid type self working schemes like Quixtar and Amway ... sooner than later a new immigrant is contacted with regards to this ... All the best ... CD has lots o information to dig for ........

Job for newly landed immigrant
Hi,
You are in canada only 2 weeks,don't panic with negativism,take it easy and relax..job would come.In a foreign country either in europe or NA it takes 4-5 years to settle.I am based in europe and have a PR for Canada but chose not to come.Basically because i am well settled in West europe and both of us have a nice job.There is no problem with survival job..i got 2-3 easily in toronto when i came there in 2007 end.It might be a bit hard now with recession but not impossible.Keep looking the way you are instead of talking too much with too many.Job is not only the qualification and eligibility but also to be in right place at right time.Be flexible and open but focussed.
If you have good common sense and good language you would get the job...all talk of racisim and kala or gora is bullshit...hard work and right attitude are valued...above everything else,everywere..be it India or NA or Europe.Be straightforward,honest and little streetsmart...
Hope it helps....

NM,
Let me answer your Q with a simple true example that happened in 2002.
I immigrated to canada in 2002 and found 3 friends (desi) in Canada with whom I shared a 2 bed apt.. One of them saw a newspaper advt of one " Desi and Associates" (name changed for obvious reasons) who promised the same as it was promised to you. Their main point was that they would give a good Canaidan reference to the employer and that would get the candidate 80K to 100 K job for sure in a matter of weeks. Since this guy was returned from the Gulf and he had a feeling that all Canadian born / educated guys were fools and that once he had a reference, he could be the boss of 'em all. So he paid $3000 for the service.
Result : They used to send him the same job vacancies (automated) as was found in leading job search websites. No one cared for this 'Desi and Associates" reference. They e-mailed him a couple of std. mails as to how to write resumes, cover letters etc ..Though they said that you could use an online live chat with a professional for help and I donot know if he used it or not.

conclusion : any one / firm taht asks for money for any services is not worth it.

Peace by TK

Hi,

Look at the link for the coop program for new comers to get a job in their field. Many people get job through this program.

http://www.dpcdsb.org/CEC/CNE/Adult+Centres/Brian+J+Fleming+Centre/Coop/Foreign-Trained+Professional+Co-op.htm

Your wife could upgrade herself through this program and find a job.

Good Luck!

Desi's Please beware of *** careers, ** Group International

Modus Operandi,

They would give you a call and say they would help you get a job.
They would meet you once and next time ask you to come with your wife and family.
Then in some way you would be told that your resume, your interview techniques etc needs to be reworked.
They would charge you say for eg $ 5000/- to get you the job.
The break up is almost 80% for the services they render and 20% for the job guarantee ( I forget the exact nos but it is similar to this)

So in event they are not able to get you a job, and you do end up suing them, you can only get 20% of the amount, as the balance is to their services like resume writing, job readyness training etc.

I had this experience with them 3 years ago. I had asked them that yes ,I am willing to pay the money , only after I get the job and I finish probation. They said they would need money upfront. Further the contract they wave on your face, they expect to sign there, do not let you take a copy to read overnight.

The reception would show offices all over the world. IF you ask them for contact info for anywhere else, they / their website has no info.

Please read the links below. and in a nut shell, DO NOT GO TO ANYONE WHO CHARGES YOU TO GET A JOB.

Another point to notice is that very few people who have been in this country for more than a year are contacted by this agency.

Thanks,

He said the details of charges will be told during the second meeting.

Yes, this is what happened to me.

I met with a guy on friday. He said that what i lack is Networking in this country, and their company helped lots of immgrants coming from Gulf in the past. He told me to bring my wife also for the second meeting, on saturday itself the next day to my first meeting. I was obviously not ready for this "paid service" and i said i will again confirm the date for next meeting.

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience here as people will stay away from such scam in the future.

No names please
Guys,
Hope you are aware that CD does not permit naming names (companies , organisations). CD could be liable to sued and also be compelled to give the IP addresses of the posters who defame companies / individuals and then the posters would be sued by these companies / individuals for defamation. getting money from defamation cases is a very big business in Canada.
So please do use caution in the future and do edit your posts to delete names.

Peace by TK
