One of the challenges for most newcomers to Canada is finding a suitable job that’s a good fit for their qualifications and experience.
There are a lot of barriers to finding this fit with the biggest one being the Canadian experience.
If you’ve never lived in Canada, you can’t have Canadian experience and if no one will hire you, you can’t get Canadian experience.
One of the ways to overcome this barrier is by participating in networking and employment activities offline and online.
Over the next few weeks, I will share networking events and resources that will help you get a leg up in your job search as a newcomer to Canada starting with this Newcomers Canada expo.
What is the Newcomers Canada Global Talent Expo?
The Newcomers Canada Global Talent Expo is an event being organized by Newcomers Canada; a network resource for new Canadians.
The organization has been in existence for 15 years and works hard to connect employers with available local talent.
The Newcomers Canada Global Talent Expo is being organized for newcomers to Canada to meet and consult with:-
- Representatives from various regions across Canada seeking new talent
- Immigration experts
The event also hopes to encourage attendees to explore opportunities available in regions located outside major Canadian cities.
