Hi, can you tell us how much experience you have? Were you a perfect
match for the job? What type of IT job it is? etc...

Because from experience, IT jobs are almost none-existant today...

Thank's a lot Samoji,

That really helps a lot. Actually I am amazed that you were even able
to see when your medicals reached Buffalo from Ottawa (I guess through
eclient), because my status is paralyzed on eclient and does not move
from "In Process" to any other state snce nearly 2 years.

Anyway thanks again for your help.

Same here. I applied at Buffalo in Oct 2001. Got my file number in Nov
2001. I haven't heard from them after that. eClient just says " In
Process".

Are those real responses, or the automated emails sent by the job sites or
the company?
What are the typical salary figures that you are seeing?

Thanks.

I assume they are real response , As I get doc to fill for salary
expectations and others ask for writing more on some specfic work.
Currenlty I am filling like 34 dollors per hour.

Hello,

I'm so happy to hear that people in the IT field are finding jobs
quickly, even programmers.

A friend of mine arrived 2 months ago and he is working as a Java
Programmer, he had just one year of experience, so he is getting just
$36k a year, which is not so bad.

I wonder why some people try to make people afraid, I guess they don't
want competition in their field, so they post scary stories.

As a confident person, I'm sure that I'll still have jobs even if you
immigrate, si I'm telling you the truth, if you are into the IT field,
even if you are just a programmer, Canada is a good place to live.

If you go to the Human Resources Canada website, it also says that in
2007 there will still be a high demand.

Best regards!
