Part 1: Getting Canadian Employers Interested in You
In this chapter, we’re going to show you, step-by-step how to:
- Get Noticed by Employers.
- Attract the attention of an employer by assuring them that you meet the requirements for their open position.
- Overcome usual objections that Canadian Employer (naturally) have towards the complexities of Hiring Overseas Workers
So, how do you really get Noticed by Canadian Employers? Can you really diversify yourself from the vast pool of other overseas Candidates applying for the same vacancy?
(We think that you can, but first things first)
- Make sure you prepare a professional Resume & Cover Letter, that will focus on your details skills, credentials, and abilities that are relevant to the next rung of your career ladder
- Your Resume (as we call it in Canada) is the most important asset in getting the Attention of Canadian Hiring Managers. It acts as a “Silent Salesman” for a job applicant, giving insight into the candidate’s unique abilities.
- A poorly constructed resume or one that doesn’t place the proper focus on your abilities can very easily get you disqualified by The Canadian Hiring Managers.
- The professional resume attracts the attention of an employer by assuring them that you meet the requirements for their open position. It’s one of the most important tools in your job search.
Attract the attention of a Canadian Employer & assure them that your qualifications are the best possible fit for their open position.
- Make sure you include your name at the top middle, left or right corner on the first page of your Resume and also at the top of page 2 in case they are separated
- Include relevant experience and volunteer experience as well
- Focus on your accomplishments and the results you got. Employers want to see number whenever possible
- The Cover Letter is your “sales pitch” where you are the ‘product” so it’s vital to have good communication skills in order to “sell’ yourself
- A good Cover Letter can help you land that interview
- Your Cover Letter needs to be addressed to a specific Person inside the company which you are applying in and have a catchy headline along with the name of the position you’re applying for
- List your qualifications in a presentable manner.
- Focus on your skills and achievements.
- Do not go overboard! Your Cover Letter needs to be 3-4 short sentences and needs to focus on what you can bring to the company, cover your work experience shortly, and how your experience can benefit the company where you’re applying at
- Don’t forget to also demonstrate your knowledge about the company and the position being offered.
- End the letter with a polite and subtle hint that you would very much appreciate if the employer can contact you back.
