Here is their advice for newcomers starting their job search in Canada: 

  • Research and understand where your strengths, weaknesses and where your skills best fit into the Canadian economy. 

  • Networking can be a valuable strategy for your job search.  Every interview and meeting should be considered as an opportunity to grow and learn.
