Default Work Permit - Finding job - Employment agencies..

Hi, I am a Computer Engineer with 3 years of experience.

I have heard that it is relatively easy to get an IT job in Canada.. but I couldn't succeed in finding a job yet..

Any tips? Anybody without a work permit found a job while they are in home
country..?

I am ready to pay to employment agencies but I don't know any company that I can trust? I would be grateful if you give me the names of accredited employment companies that you know?

How much do they charge normally?


I am accepted to canada as a visitor, do you think it is better to go there as a visitor and look for a job in person?

I wouldn't pay an agency to find me a job. How do you know if they are any good at what they do.

You also need to consider the likelihood of a) finding an employer who is prepared to sponsor you for a work permit and b) the job is in an occupation that HRDC will validate.

I guess this means a specialist job in a specialist area that it is difficult to fill your position within Canada. Otherwise you would need to be sufficiently senior for the position to be difficult to fill. If you think that your experience and expertise merits that, then you should go ahead and look for a job.

I'd target recruitment agencies that are experienced in your specialist area of work to see if there are any possible vacancies. They shouldn't charge you anything if they are interested in you.

Good Luck....
