Research job opportunities

Use your National Occupational Classification (NOC) to research job prospects at the Canada Job Bank. Take note of standard wages, outlook, education and job requirements. Most importantly, know if your profession is regulated. As mentioned, you will need to go through the qualification recognition process to be licensed or certified to practice your profession.

Find out the demand for your profession and the kind of skills and qualifications companies are looking for. If you’re Manitoba-bound, check Manitoba In-Demand Occupations or the Canada Job bank, Indeed and other online job boards. If you feel that you are ready, go ahead and send an application. Make sure to submit a Canadian-style resume. Read 7 steps to a Canadian-style resume to learn the format. Start preparing to become job-ready by reading our Employment articles.
