Job Search The Canadian Way

What Works, What Doesn't

Authored by Mohamed Taher

Job search in Canada is a full-time job, not a casual step. It is very much the same for all job seekers (new Canadians and seasoned Canadians alike). The unstated formula is: full-time search for full-time jobs, part-time search may lead you to part-time jobs, and the rest is left to your imagination. With emphasis on a full-time job search, this book shows the pathways that work and strongly recommends learning best practices. The bottom line is, if your résumé doesn't " work ", neither will you. Being casual is just one point to bear. More such considerations include myths, mistakes and misconceptions in job search.

This book is a culmination of over six years of invaluable process of learning, experience, and involvement in the Canadian job market. The book presents the result of a survey (from respondents, such as, job seekers, job developers, etc.), acceptable job applications. JOB SEARCH: THE CANADIAN WAY visualizes What Works and What Doesn't in the Canadian job market. This book offers tips for the job search as a holistic process.

JOB SEARCH: THE CANADIAN WAY, in short, deals with job searching, preparing a cover letter that matches the advertised job, a résumé that fits the needs of an employer, and handling the pre-interview and post-interview processes, and a template to record your job search process. And, details as prescribed in private and public sector (e.g., guidelines from Ontario, Ministry of Training).

Interestingly, as the Canadian job market continues to be competitive and the ways of looking for a job are still evolving, this book comes at just the right time, with an abundance of advice and practical exercises for all job searches. This book helps in understanding how best to market yourself in a volatile environment, selecting the cover letter & résumé template that shows precisely what hiring companies are looking for, will prepare you for an interview in ways that work and which will ensure you secure the desired job.
