Tip 1: How to go to work in Canada
Evaluate your knowledge and skills. Try to understand whether your profession or specialty will be in demand on the Canadian labor market. Good chances to get a job in a prestigious position are with programmers and other employees of the computer and information technology sector. Also required are engineering and construction trades, but holders of diplomas with higher economic education will have to undergo additional training (6-8 months) in one of the Canadian colleges. After receiving a Canadian diploma, an economist can get a job as an accountant or a financial department employee.
Learn English. Generally speaking, there are two languages in Canada: English and French, but English predominates territorially, according to the number of carriers and is more often used in business communication. It is impossible to get a decent job without a good knowledge of the language. You can determine your level of English by using the Internet. There are many sites where you can take a test for free or for money, the result of which you can attach to your resume.
Do a focused job search in Canada. Study the information provided on the websites of the Canadian Employment Agency - employment agencies. Try to register on most similar sites and post your resume there - you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire on the form of the agency. Write a resume in English and send it by e-mail to companies and institutions where you would like to work. Communicate on forums and social networks with Russian-speaking Canadians. Ask them about the specifics of employment in this or that region of the country. Watch out for job offers from companies - many firms are looking for talented employees around the world.
Make recommendations before leaving forCanada. Ask your former employers to give you recommendations in English. If this is not possible, translate the relevant document into English and notarize.

You must pass a certain survey for which you will earn a certain number of points, depending on the length of service, level of education, language skills, adaptability, age status, and a number of other parameters. You can count up the score yourself, as the scoring scale is available to everyone. Pay attention to those points on points in which you can influence: for example, you will get more if you improve your English.
Use one of the ways to find work in Canada. There are several possibilities. The first is the Employment Agency, which is a network of employment agencies. They are focused on different specialties and function on the principle of labor exchanges you know. The second is to find work through the telephone directory, in which there is a special section for those who want to findthe work. The third is the standard resume dispatch. Cover a large number of companies, and you are guaranteed to be invited for an interview.
Pay attention to the lists of professions, which in Canada are especially in demand - programmers and translators. If you want to guarantee yourself some financial stability while looking for a job that suits your vocation, go through special courses that will allow you to get good computer or foreign language skills (preferably, confirming it with an international certificate), and then you will easily findthe work for the time of their searches. Certificates and letters of recommendation in any case will be a good help, which will increase your attractiveness in the eyes of the employer.
