WORKING IN CANADA
is a land of opportunities where you and your family can live and
work, in a safe modern environment.
However, the fact of having been admitted to live in
this Country doesn't necessarily mean that they are waiting for you
with a god job. You must be ready on your arrival, with a good level
of English and the technical abilities and knowledge to get that
good job. It is just reasonable to think that you will be able to
work in the field on which you have knowledge and experience. But
you may also face the possibility to go through difficult long
process to get a suitable job.
Finding a good job in
will be the basis for your and your family welfare. Your life style will depend
to a great extend of the quality of the job you may get. On the other hand, a
good job, according to your personal expectations, experience and education,
will be key aspects for your feeling of achievement or frustration in your new
life, both for you and your family.
On the other extreme
will be those low-payment jobs, doing something different from your previous
profession or craft and performing tasks below your working capacities, for long
working hours, to be able to go by with the basic monthly expenditure. That will
be the beginning of a period of discomfort and uneasiness. That situation,
rather common for newcomers, along with the negative feeling derived from
missing your family and friends, your favourite dishes and habits in your birth
country, may turn in a heavy emotional burden, and in a feeling of failure that
makes it difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Many families go
through such difficult situation in Canada and just resist stoically those hard
times, seeing how easy it is for their kids to learn the language and get the
same education than Canadian children (at least elementary school), with the
hope of a better future for them. However, studies have proved that children
also suffer the stress related to their parents’ distress and their school
performance, temper, self assuredness, motivation and self - esteem are affected
in a negative way, in the long run.
For that reason, it is
important for you and your family to focus your energies on getting ready to get
a good job. And the most effective way is to come ready beforehand for the job
market reality you will face in
Canada, and its limitations. So bring a plan, a
course of actions to be followed at every stage of your settlement process.
It is here when this
guide comes into the picture, as it can make a big difference in your and your
family's lives. Knowing the
