Use social media to your advantage

Social media is a powerful networking tool and a way to find job postings. Use hashtag searches like #jobposting, #we’rehiring, and #needajob. These will help you with your job search.


Strong references help employers learn more about you and your employment history. This can be a valuable resource when job hunting. Asking previous employers in your home country to provide references can go a long way to landing a job in Canada.

Follow up

Whenever you apply for a job, wait for three to four business days and check in with the employer about your application. Follow-ups can also be after an interview to thank them for their consideration and that you look forward to hearing from them again.
