Smile We have a job offer!!!!!

Don't know if you all remember but some weeks ago we posted an item on what was the best way to approach potential employers either via internet or by phone.

Well unbelievebly we now have a job offer - my OH is civil engineer - and we are off to Calgary as soon as LMO has been sorted and TWP issued.

OMG - keep reading the letter coz I just don't believe it. Had settled in the long haul via skilled worker visa and now this has happened.

Just goes to show that 'luck' does happen to the ordinary guy as well!

OMG.........................

Well, we just had a look back at your last posts and you have gone from just beginning to look at job boards, through a variety of interviews and to getting a job offer in just 71 days. That is absolutely amazing but we don't think luck had a whole bunch to do with it - scanning back over your posts, it seems clear that you both made this happen. CONGRATULATIONS on a great achievement. You must be over the moon. Do you know where in Calgary Mr Ross will be working? Your head must be spinning with thoughts of all you need to arrange now.

Have you actually been here before? If not, the blog link in the sig line below will hopefully give you some sense of life in and around Calgary.

Kind regards,

Eamonn & Janet.

Hi The Ross Family,

Well done on your job offer.....sounds like it was a bit of luck and hard work of researching and looking at information.

Well Done again, hopefully this will be me in a few months !!

Congratulations Ross family

We too were in the Skilled Worker process when Mr Y decided to be proactive and search for a job. Within 4 months he had made first contact with the company who applied for his LMO (first time they had employed a foreign worker).

After landing, CHC requested updated paperwork and our PR application was activated - 8 months later we had our PR visas

Exciting times ahead for you all
