Most newcomers to Canada bring along with them a vast amount of education, skills and experience in different fields; however, the usual end result is that all those skills and experience are lost in the maze of integration into the Canadian system. Our Goodwill team has identified most of the challenges and hardships our newcomer clients are facing in an effort to put their skills and experience into practice.
Goodwill Career Centre has gone the extra mile by partnering with newcomers in trying to overcome the barriers that they are faced with in their job search. We also partner with employers in order to build relationships that create confidence and trust in the skills and experience that our newcomer clients can bring to their organization. As a result of these partnerships, our clients get an opportunity to utilize their previous experience and employers create diversity in their organizations.
In such tough economic times with a very competitive labour market, here are some tips for our newcomer clients that have proved to be helpful to our former newcomer clients:
It is a good idea to set goals for yourself and keep track of them. The set goals should be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-framed)
