Default Work Permits.

Hi

Do you have a job offer before applying for a work permit?

and does it need to be your current profession.

I drank extensively with a Canadian while he was working in London, then he gave me a job when he was in a position to do so after moving back to Canada. There are a few Canadian pubs in London, so you might want to start hanging around them. It was in the same profession though.

There is a WIKI section here about searching for jobs and also one on how to put a Canadian Resume (CV)

Best advice is to contact Canadian employers from London and tell them that you are coming out for a job search and arrange a meeting. Then come out for 10 days to a 2 weeks and meet as many prospective employers as you can.

If you are a qualified tradesman, health professional or IT professional, your chances are very good...otherwise, still pretty good.

Not necessarily x2

You can gain a WP if you want to be self employed, and that need not be related to anything you've previously had experience in.
