Workplace Culture:

  1. What differences have you noticed between working in Canada and working in your home country?

In my home country I get job by only visiting workplaces or sites and asking them if they need my skills and there is interview.  But in Canada you must pass through a long process get a job, such as resume, cover letter, interview and waiting appointment.

  1. What advice would you give to immigrants and newcomers looking for work?

I advice them first of all to be patient and everytime and don’t expect that you will get job that is equivalent to your skills.  So you must search first job for survival until you become a full Canadian and full experience that you get from struggle for survival.
