DO’s and DONT’s
It is never easy searching for a job from India. Here is a summary of the do’s and don’ts for overseas job seekers in the Australian or Canadian employment market.
|Visit various Australia or Canada job websites BEFORE deciding to emigrate, to see whether job opportunities exist in your field.||Apply for job vacancies or visit Australia or Canada for job interviews more than 1 – 12 weeks away from a possible start date. Employers may not be interested.|
|Check eligibility and, where possible, apply for your permanent residence visas. This is very important as prospective employers will ask about your immigration|
status and being knowledgeable about the application process is a prerequisite for many Australian or Canadian job vacancies.
|Expect all processes to work like your home country. Be flexible and willing to fit in with local etiquette.|
|Start applying for advertised job vacancies from OVERSEAS, however only 1 to 12 weeks before a possible start date or visit to Australia or Canada.||Expect a job at the same level or higher than you had overseas. You may lack local knowledge and may need to take a step back in order to advance later.|
|Send an introduction letter of application and C.V. to EVERY potential employer and recruitment agent in the region of Australia or Canada you intend settling in,|
to let them know that you are available. Use Yellow Pages Australia or
Yellow Pages Canada
|Do not negotiate much on salary, there are standard salaries offered. The cost of living and income tax rates are lower in Australia and Canada than some other western|
developed nations, so refer to your NET INCOME, not the gross amount.
|Research and prepare your C.V. in the standard Australia or Canada C.V style and write a short but clear covering letter indicating your visa status.||Expect a job offer in the first week. On average, it can take local residents in Australia or Canada one to eight weeks or longer, to find a new job.|
|Provide an Australian or Canadian postal address, mobile or email address in your C.V. where possible.||Don’t “over negotiate” the contract with your first employer. Be flexible and understand that employment law and contract terms may differ in Australia or Canada|
|Let employers know you are available for Skype or face-to-face interviews.|
|Make a positive impression in the interview, be flexible and have copies of your residence visas and references available for employers to see.|
