How to Find a Job in Canada : Common Problems and Effective Solutions
Written by Efim Cheinis, once a newcomer himself from Russia, and Dale Sproule, owner of the Canadian Newcomer Magazine, this second book in the Canadian Newcomer Series deals with all aspects of the Canadian job hunt as it relates to newcomers. Quite often, newcomers' expectations of the Canadian job market and job search are unrealistic. By providing newcomers with access to How to Find a Job in Canada before arriving and upon arrival in Canada, they are able to learn and understand Canadian job market facts and intricacies. Through proper preparation and learning, immigrants will be able to provide for their families and prosper in their new country. From resume writing to Canadian workplace etiquette, the book uses a problem/solution format to answer newcomers' most common questions.
