Hi,
 
Is or are there website links you know that I can apply online for jobs in Canada? I'm from the Philippines and would like to possibly apply for jobs in Canada which would welcome foreign applications online as direct hire from Canadian employers. My line is advertising, graphic design and the arts.
 
Or is it better to immigrate as a skilled worker first and then look for a job in Canada?
 
Your help would be much welcome. Thanks.
Strive to be alive. :)

Hi,

You have to find an employer who would apply for a Labour Market Opinion for you. You will find that not many employers will respond but do not be disheartened. That is part of the job search process.

If you are a PR, applying for a job in Canada would be a bit faster (no need for LMO) but applying for permanent residency would be the hard part. Explore the different avenues open for Permanent Residency: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/index.asp

All the best.

New immigrants looking to secure jobs in Canada will find this Squidoo web page useful: Job Search Guide for New Immigrants.

Trying to get your foot into the door, being outside of Canada is always a challenge, but one effective way is to start building a professional network. One such online professional network is LinkedIn. You can learn more about it HERE.

Hope you find this useful...ask if you have any questions.

Cheers,
AJ

LinkedIn is "the" best professional social networking site in US/Canada.  This is where you should set-up your working professional profile as both HR professionals and recruiters use this site to look for people and do quick reference checks on people.  It is quickly becoming a mandatory requirement for working professionals to have their online presence.

personally i'd be shocked if you ever got a job that way--there is alot of unemployment over here as it is--employers will not need to look overseas to fill any spots

Someone was looking for a 'secure' site to both list their credentials and to look for opportunities.  LinkedIn is one resource - but it is also the best for a professional social networking site.  There absolutely are many credible on-line job bulletin boards out there, which is not what LinkedIn claims to primarily be, but I can tell you first hand that LinkedIn has become a fast growing site for recruiters to both scan for possible candidates and then do quiet screening of candidates.   Of course not all companies will look (or invest) in bringing over a new immigrant for a position, it totally depends on the company and position.  Does it happen often, probably not, but it is still an avenue that all job seekers should investigate.  At the bare minimum you should have your professional profile posted so people can quickly see your bio.
 
Another site that automatically generates bio's on you is www.zoominfo.com  you can 'claim' your bio and ensure all info is accurate and also provide additional/updated information.

Networking is key when looking for a job whether it is via job boards, recruitment agencies or professional online networks.

Since coming to Canada as an immigrant over a decade ago, networking is how I landed 90 percent of my jobs and moved up the corporate ladder.

Networking in this day and age is even more beneficial given that most everything is online now. So I wouldn't discount professional online networking altogether, but at the same time, I wouldn't make it my main focus and avenue to target jobs.

It's always a good idea to keep one's option open.

Happy New Year everyone! :)
