Newcomers, Fast Track to Job Search Success with JSW

“With immense gratitude, I would love to say thanks to the team of the Welcome Centres – Pickering & Ajax – for their support during my initial days and months in Canada. “

Jaitin D. came to Canada with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering and 10 years of experience in mechanical design roles.

After finding work as a Mechanical Designer, Jaitin shared how the Job Search Workshop and the Welcome Centres assisted him in his job search.

“Being a new immigrant, it’s a big task to land a job in one’s own area of expertise. I enrolled in the Job Search Workshop. In this course, the facilitator, Rupa, critiqued my resume, helped me to tailor my resume as to the employers’ specific requirements, provided knowledge about the hidden job market, and conducted mock interviews. The workshop taught us how to dig into the hidden job market by using various techniques like cold calling, and reaching out to recruiters on LinkedIn. Feedback from the facilitator was really appreciated and she covered the course content very well, answering every question in detail. I started getting interview calls as a result of the revisions I made to my resume during the workshop. It took about 3 months from the beginning to achieve the target, and I landed a job in Mechanical Design in Montreal.”
