Are there jobs in Canada for UK citizens?

Moving to Canada is a big decision to undertake for anybody. It's fast gaining a reputation as a land of opportunity. However, some people are finding things tough over there, with a competitive job market getting swelled by an influx of immigrants from Europe.

Networking is key to securing a job in Canada. Before you head over, do your research, fire off a few mails to people working in the industry you hope to crack, and build a list of contacts. Canadians will respond extremely well to you showing a continuing interest in a post, and a lot of employers will consider your application more favourably if you call them back.

There are other ways to find jobs in Canada too. A lot of jobs in the country are filled through job boards and the likes of Craigslist. Craigslist is a treasure trove of potential jobs. It breaks down your choice into different categories. You then email a copy of your "resume" to the prospective employer, and they will get back to you.

To work in Canada you will need to secure a work permit for yourself. Details of how to secure one of these valuable permits is available from the Canada immigration site at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/index.asp.

You have two options, you can either go on a one year working visa (if you're under 30) or else research the "Skilled Worker" Programme, which is currently accepting applications. Take a look today and see if this big move is for you!
