You know, someone should really set up an 'ex-pats' IT company in Canada. If so many skilled people can't get hired by Canadian companies, then such a company should kick their ass.

I'd look into it myself, but I'm not a CEO-type .

I claimed to know a computer language I'd never seen. I did know other languages so on the first day on the job I rooted around for a sample program, stole the gist of it and started churning them out. After a while the firm laid off other people and gave me their work.

Later I learned that the boss didn't believe anything on the resumes anyway, he just hired people who had generous agents and dumped them if they didn't work out. That's the big advantage of contracting, the boss can dump you on any whim so he's not taking much of chance in giving you a shot. I'd be surprised if the government agencies here have ever hired a contractor on merit; they usually pick the one who comes with a free TV.
