- What types of job search techniques did you use to find your job?
Job search websites helped me find this job
- What differences have you noticed between working in Canada and working in your home country?
Canada has so many rules related to the employee rights than Brazil. On the other hand, minimum wage is way higher.
Advice to other Immigrants/Newcomers:
- What advice would you give to immigrants and newcomers looking for work?
I would suggest you to talk to people and let them know that you are looking for a job. Do not be afraid to go to places you want to work, talk to the managers and introduce yourself. Job search websites are good and convenient, however do not relay on them only, because the competition is higher.
