Work + Study
International students can obtain useful job experience through part-time student work. These works are generally part-time permanent, temporary contract, contract basis or seasonal jobs. Although you need to provide clear proof that you can pay for your education and living costs when you arrive in Canada through your proof of Funds but the government of Canada allows international students to work on their study permit to manage their basic expenses. You can start working off-campus by applying directly to retail stores, malls, restaurants, etc. You can follow these steps to ensure a good job position.
Create Your Network
Networking is a very essential skill in the current work environments. It is very important to have the right connections with right people in the field. Start making new friends, exchange your numbers and maintain the connection with them. Join local Facebook groups to be aware of your surroundings and talk with new people living nearby. These groups sometimes have job posting which can help you acquire a part-time job. Sign up on LinkedIn and make connections. Converse with your connections and try to seek guidance from people that have experience. It is vital to make an effort on your part because taking the first step seems overwhelming but people here are really nice and will surely help you out.
Ask for Reference
Already have friends in Canada? Then you are just one step away from your part-time job. Call your friends and ask for their reference. Reference holds an important place in getting a job. It increases your chances of getting a position tremendously amongst other candidates. It can also help you in getting the hidden jobs in market.
