UniExplore launches Career Coaching Programs to boost your career
If you ask people which year is the toughest for new graduates to get a job? The answer you will hear must be this year, or, every year! After all, getting a job after graduation, especially for international students, is always a huge change and challenge that every single student has to face.
As the economic conditions degrading in every corner of the world, even people with local experience and connections are finding it hard to find a job, not to mention one in their preferred fields.
As you were browsing job postings on Indeed, one of the largest job sites in Canada, you might see many people asking the same question: “Is it me or is it super hard to get a job these days………….?” Someone responded with a very interesting analogy “getting a job is like finding a needle in a haystack”.
To international students, this seems to be even more true. When you open Zhihu, the largest Q&A website in the Chinese community, the question “how difficult is it for international students to find a job in Canada?” has attracted over 1.1 million views. When you look into the answers in the thread, you will notice most people think the real reasons for it to be this “difficult” are lack of knowledge, resources and connections of industries; unclear career plan; and little or no experience in networking.
The graduation season has passed by a few months already. For international students, your 3-year work permit is counting down……
It’s time to take actions!
Excavating your career advantages, acquiring knowledge and resources, improving your job hunting abilities and skills, they seem to be a long way to go, but as long as you have clear goals, proper methods and targeted training, “finding a needle in a haystack” won’t be that hard!
UniExplore has always been a team driven by one mission that is “Help international students better succeed in Canada”. Today, we are announcing another big news!
