How did the Immigrant Centre help you to find a job in Canada?
interview skills

What types of job search techniques did you use to find your job?
All of them :) Talked to friends/classmates, visited employers using google, job search websites, job fair, applied online

What differences have you noticed between working in Canada and working in your home country?
The differences are huge - in Canada, workers are treated with great respect, understanding and patience. They teach everything and help in everything! The big surprise for me was that it is not necessary to indicate age and photo in the resume! In Ukraine, everything is the opposite!

What advice would you give to immigrants and newcomers looking for work?
Search everywhere and on a permanent basis (enter your resume personally, visit job fairs, search on relevant job search sites, ask everyone you know if there are any vacancies for you somewhere). You never know which source will work! I would advise you to participate in ALL the events provided by the immigration center! They are very interesting, useful and free! I learned a lot after the trainings! Thank you very much for your work and help!
