How to apply for a job in Canada
Canadians prize the fact that their society is open and fair, this is reflected in the job-market as positions are achieved based on merit. Maximize your chances of getting the job you want by learning about the Canadian way to get employment.
 
 


A resume, (also known in Canada as Curriculum Vitae or CV) is a standard for job applications that is designed to get you an interview. It should summarise your experience and qualifications so they can be rapidly evaluated by a recruiter. If you are applying for different sorts of jobs, consider producing different CVs emphasising your different talents and previous positions. You can prepare your own resume or get it professionally done. Either way, it is important that you get several individuals to review it before you start sending it.
In addition to the resume, a covering letter addressed specifically to the company is customary. This letter tells the potential employer why you should be hired and highlights your relative abilities and experience for a particular position and/or for the recipient company.

Your job applications may involve some aptitude tests and other evaluation processes for which you should prepare. Be sure to get as much information about test and/or other evaluation processes in advance. If you know what to expect, you will be able to prepare mentally and perform better.

Job interviews in Canada

If you have managed to secure the interview this is your chance to persuade the interviewer that you are the right person for the job. Interviews differ in length and nature depending on the company, the interviewer(s) and the nature of the position. However, they most commonly involve an HR interview and the hiring manager interview. These interviews are designed to extract different information from potential employees in order to determine their skill set, fit within the company and their varied aptitudes.

You need to rewrite your CV into a CV format that is suited to the Canada environment, and get ready for job interview.
