What is wrong with my resume

Chandresh,
First, Congratulations on the new house !!

Looks like we now have a conclusion to the renting Vs buying debate :) , This is a major milestone and great success and wish you and your family the very best . I also hope to become a home owner one day , but that day seems far for now.


Coming to the topic of your resume, i dont know if I can really give any insight into it as you have more industry experience than me and probably most on this forum, since you have polished your resume so much i dont think it would need much help. But I do really think that if you develop some solid references and refresh the references you have in the industry , you might be able to get the break. How about calling the people you have worked with in the past and telling them that you are looking.

Given your solid professional background and overseas experience, i strongly feel that in one of these days we all will see a post from you , breaking the good news to all of us that you have got your dream break .... I dont know why , i havent met you in person , but after having so many pleasant and some not so pleasant interactions with you on CD ,
i strongly feel that your big break is not very far away . Just seek it agressively and i am positive that we will get that post from you, and we all will celebrate together!!!

Good luck my friend .:cheers:

Not sure if I could be of help here. As someone else suggested on an earlier post, a core specialization is very important.

I am also a US CPA, may be able to help you package your Resume, as well as provide you with some email addresses of people that are recruiting constantly.

On a slightly different note, try and keep up a positive attitude - as tough as it may be. Again reading this thread, I understand that you posted something to the effect that you got pink slipped after telling your CMA boss that you were a 'CA'. I don't mean to be critical, but take such notions out of your head. Respect the professionalism of the system here, and you will be respected in turn.

Once again, I could be in a position to help, feel free to ask.

Thanks crenshaw - I will send you an e-mail which you can reply to so that I get your e-mail address. I shall then send my resume as an attachment. Any help is appreciated.

My core specialization is confidential accounting of family businesses, international finance and Group company setups, and foreign exchange.

Speaking for positive attitude - though some of my postings might not suggest it, since I consider this forum where I would like to speak / convey the truth, people who have come in contact with me are surprised to see my positive attitude. Infact. some of my friends and relations are worried sick that I have been jobless for most part of last three years, but are amazed to see my enthusiasm towards life. If you were to meet me, you might wonder if I am jobless or actually in a very cushy job!

About that incident of me saying that I am a CA........No I was not pink slipped. I was on a temp assignment thru accountemps and they found my work very good. So after about 15 days the CFO walked into my office to thank me for doing a wonderful job, something which they were not expecting to be done at the fast pace that I was able to do. One of their assistant accountant had left and they were looking for one. When he offered me (casually though) the job, I told them that to hire me, I was morally committed to going thru Accountemps. In the next 10 minutes or so, I was able to convince him to pay the lump sum fee to accountemps and hire me since he liked my job. then we chit-chatted for a few moments and he suddenly sprung up the question 'by the way, what is your academic background' - and I simply replied ' I am a Chartered Accountant' and soon after having said that I could see the job offer slipping away. When he finally left my room his words were that he will have to rethink about the offer!

By that I did not mean that a CMA boss could not agree to take a CA under him. No, it was rather clear to him that a CA would not stay in the position of Assistant Accountant (30K p.a.) for long, and so it was no use hiring him. And at that moment, I too was sure that I would not stay there for long - so it was the right judgement on his part. Today it is a different thing for me - I would be ready to commit a 5 year stay starting with 35k - not because I need that money badly, but because now I need a balance between my job and personal life and 35 k would take care of all my needs, present and future.

I do respect the professionalism of the system, and if I have conveyed it otherwise, I am at fault. It is just that there are not enough jobs for professionals (immigrants) - the ratio of jobs requiring professionals to availability of professionals in this country is a bit lop-sided.

My apologies for having jumped to conclusions. I guess its the general negativity around that may have made me assume, I shouldn't have.

I will certainly have a look at the Resume and come back to you in any way that I can help out.

No offence Crenshaw - I know at times we tend to read/misread someone's post - mainly because it is with one's own experiences and knowledge one analysis a written sentence (sometimes spoken too - but there the body language is there to help make the correct judgement). I am hapy to be able to convey my real thoughts to you.

S'up Chandresh,
If you wish you may send me your resumes as well so I can go thru them. I have read several resumesand interviewed several people in my last position as supervisor of investment loans, including people who were seeking fund accounting postions (a far cry from your specialisation).
I am pretty dead sure that your resumes must be where its at and will not need any fine tuning, but nonetheless I am willing to have a dekko.
Anything to help out an amigo.
And way to hustle on your new house, pal!
BTW , if you don't mind, what time will you be at the MBA fair on Sun, ie if you are goin', so's I kin run into you like at the MMM!
Keep up the spirits man, don't ne'er say die!
Excelsior!
BKB
PS muh email is

I guess it was faux pas on my part guys .I misquoted the incident as 'pink slip' as I recall this post was almost an year old in which Chandresh had related his early experiences here .

At first I cudnt imagine -- a guy who shd ve been a Financial Director elsewhere had 2 go thru such vagaries . Its pure steel nerves Chandresh that keeps u going I guess and still appreciating Canada . Reminds me of "When the going gets tough the tough get going " thing .

Congrats on ur new house .

Regards ,
Manasvi .

Congrats to your wife for being a professional teacher. From my experience, I know that to be a professional teacher in ontario without prior qualification and experience is almost impossible procedure ( 3years). It will be helpful for huge number of experienced immigrant teacher to know of the correct procedure. I request your feedback because your wife has achieved it in a short periode. Did she acquire B Ed from here?
Thanks once again.
