 JOB SEARCH / METHODS IN CANADA

 

COLD CALLS

 

A very common technique, highly recommended to look for a job in the hidden job market in Canada is to analyse companies which, due to their characteristics, may employ workers like you. After that, you call the personnel department or talk to the manager of the area of your interest to offer your services and your résumé. If you know the name of somebody in the company or have any contact, although they may be non significant, you will have better opportunities.

 

Although, as an immigrant, I know how difficult it may be those phone calls, they are advisable for being highly effective. The technique to facilitate COLD CALLS is to prepare a SCRIPT with the information you want to say, practice it many times, and keep it handy when you call.

 

 

IMPORTANT

Through Internet or in specialized books (Scotts Directory and others) you may find public libraries or human resources centers, you will be able to find the company details, such as address, activities, amount of employees, etc. That is the basic information you will need to make the call and offer your services (cold calls).

 

 

  SAMPLE COMPANY  COLD CALLING

(Cold Calling)

“Hello, Mr. Rogers, mi name is Sergio Martínez, I have 6 year experience working as mould designer in plastic industries. I am new in Canada, I’m looking for a job and I would like to meet with you to see the possibility of a job at CNC Industries”

IF YES

Set date and time, confirm address

“ Thanks you, Mr. Rogers”

 
 

IF NO:

“I understand that you have no openings right now, but I would still to come and discuss the possibility of future opening with you company”.

IF YES

Set date and time, confirm address

 

 
 

IF NO:

“I see. In that case may I drop my resume off at your office for future possibilities and possibly see you for a few minutes?”.

IF YES

Set date and time, confirm address

 

 
 

IF NO:

“I see. Do you know of any other companies that might benefit from my experience and skills?”.

IF YES

Confirm name of the company and contact person. “ Thanks you may I use your name when I call them? Thank you”

 

 
 

IF NO:

“One final thing, Mr Rogers. May I call you back in two month’s time in case there have been any changes? Thank you”.

   

 

 

  

NOTE: This is just an example to illustrate the way you may prepare a call calling, and you should get ready according to your own case. IN case you don’t know the name of the person in charge of the area of your interest, cal and say to his/her secretary the reason for your call and ask kindly the manager’s name. Secretaries and attendants are in general terms willing to co-operate with this information.

 

To make more effective calls keep in mind these recommendations:

 

● PREPARATION: Practice the words you intend to say. The more self assure you are, the more spontaneous you will be.

 

● PRONUNCIATION: speak clearly and slowly, in a suitable tone. Think of the message you want to convey.

 

● MAKE DOWN NOTES: Making down every phone call will help your search and to make the résumé or cover letters. Write the names of Secretaries and other people, just in case you need to phone them again.

 

● GET READY FOR EVERY CALL. Make every call just when you are ready, mentally prepared and have paper, pencil, electronic translator and any other necessary element.

 

● DEFINE YOUR BEST TRANSFERABLE SKILLS INTO THE CANADIAN MARKET.

 

● TAKE THE NECESSARY TIME TO LOOK FOR A GOOD JOB.

 

Finding a good job takes time. Even for those who were born and educated in Canada. There is an amount of assistant available to facilitate your job search, but there is no guarantee of where or when you will get it.

 

● STUDY ALL THE TIME, AND IMPROVE YOUR COMMAND OF ENGLISH 

 

● MEET THE GREATEST AMOUNT OF PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE (NETWORK)
