I Have Gotten A Full Time Job In Canada. by Obeledu: 2:19am On Jan 30, 2012
My journey to Canada started with two earlier threads I posted on Nairaland as can been seen on the following links.

https://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-570972.0.html


https://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-272024.0.html


I decided to join my family in Calgary and face the challenges on July 2011. Before finally relocating to Canada I had plan of gaining employment in

the Canadian oil industries as a rig technician. The reason being that it is easy to get and also the pay is very good so far you can endure working

in a hostile weather conditions.

When I landed, I went and registered with Calgary Catholic Immigration services (this is government sponsored trainer for entry level in the oil

industries). I was invited for both oral and written interview, and to my greatest surprise I was not selected. It was very painful as I had no plan B,

meanwhile the money I had with me was going down seriously because of large family (family of five).

After much thought I went to job agency, I must emphasise that agency job are readily available but the problem is they are mostly temporary jobs.

You can be lucky and get hired by the parent company after about three months. The jobs are mostly warehouse jobs with payment range of $14-

$20/hr payment. The agent was able to get a job for me in an electrical assembly plant the next day with a payment of $17.5/hr. 

With this I was able to pay my bill and take care of my family. The job was more of physical than brain work, so I wasn’t comfortable with it. I

started submitting my resume to different telecommunication companies since that’s my major in Nigeria. I must say that I used Craigslist most of

the time and also looking up directly on the company websites. I started getting invitation for interview, after three series of interview I finally got an offer letter. I never applied for engineering positions. You cannot come from Nigeria and secure any engineering position without first undergoing

one year upgrade program. All my application was as telecommunication technician. 

The problem most of us Nigerian especially easterners face here is the accent problem. The oyibo here don’t usually understand our English.

After staying few months here I must admit that Nigeria is very lovely place to stay. When I was in Nigeria there is no weekend that will pass without you having one occasion to attend. Those things make life more enjoyable, but you can never see those things here.

I live in England, east London/Essex area to be precise. This area has a large concentration of young, upwardly mobile Nigerians and I go to 1st birthdays, naming ceremonies, birthday parties, money de sallah e,t,c on a regular despite I being the type with very few friends. I have a naming ceremony to attend on Wednesday, a baby dedication on sunday and a naming ceremony 5 days after that.

It isnt always boring if you are in the 'right' place. I know it wont be the same if I lived in say some remote part of Alaska

poster congratulations hope you wont stop just because you got a permanent position. Complacency is what kills success in these countries our people migrate to. Wishing you the best. As far as getting down with the Nigerian communities find a church and start attending before you know it your social calendar will be filled.

After staying few months here I must admit that Nigeria is very lovely place to stay. When I was in Nigeria there is no weekend that will pass without you having one occasion to attend. Those things make life more enjoyable, but you can never see those things here.

Everywhere can be lovely especially when you have a job, adequate security, and are with friends and family- and once you find your way around the nigerian community;

You can only do sumer jobs, for you to work you need work permit which you can only get at completion of your program.

It depends on what you mean by agent, I assume you mean immigration consultant.
You do not need agent to process your papers if you have access to internet.
If you still want contact I can get you one, but remenber their charges are in $$$$
Re: I Have Gotten A Full Time Job In Canada. by Obeledu: 4:03am On Feb 22, 2012
For students coming for their masters it is always advisable to complete the program before working, because that will speed up your Permanent residence application.

How to get a job in Canada from Nigeria – Getting a job in Canada is not as hard as many have been made to believe. In fact, many persons have been told that is almost impossible to get a job in Canada. But trust me, there are lots of jobs opportunities located in Canada. But knowledge alone is not power but the application of it is power. Knowing is not just it but applying it is what matters. And that is the reason i have decided to come up with this article on How to get a job in Canada from Nigeria.

As it where, Canada is located in the north eastern part of the world and have a boundary demarcation with the USA. Canada is a dream come true for millions around the world. Apart from the Job opportunities located in Canada, and it can be really literally cold out there. Research have confirmed that there are lots of Nigerians that are based in Canada who arrived there for various reasons which includes tourism, study to visit and business/working.
