Default When should I start applying for jobs?

Hi, we are submitting our PR application in July (2012) with a view to move (if all goes well!) in Feb 2014 at the earliest. I know it's too early now but when should I start applying for jobs?

Also, if I apply for a job before the decision on the PR is made, can I also go down the provincial nominee route (it would be to NS)?

Thanks in advance and hope everyone has had a great Christmas!

Under what stream will you be making the PR application? Federal Skilled Worker? Provincial Nominee? Family? TWP?

Well, most folk would say you need to be on the ground and networking in order to make progress but it really depends what your field is and what the demand for your skills is and where you intend to live.

Also, if I apply for a job before the decision on the PR is made, can I also go down the provincial nominee route (it would be to NS)?
Again, depends on how you make the initial application. IIRC, once you have a Federal application in the system, you are not eligible for a Provincial Nomination.

Sorry.....FSW without job offer.

I'm doing lots of research and networking etc at the moment. My field could be a few things to be honest, research, environment, energy (nuclear), statistics (NOC 2121 or NOC 1122). Nova Scotia area.

Again, depends on how you make the initial application. IIRC, once you have a Federal application in the system, you are not eligible for a Provincial Nomination.
What does IIRC stand for?

Thanks

Hi,
Depends on what your skillset it, if its in demand and will be in demand for a year or so, then you need to make a judgement call.

Cheers

As far as I can tell environmental jobs are in demand in NS but with 2 years to go still it still feels too early, unless I'm lucky to find a company who want to wait that long!

Suppose ill just keep a look out for now.

Keep in touch as things move slowley, but no reason to think that there will be any less demand next year or the year after that.
