Your Educational Institution
The majority of educational institutions offer their students and young graduates employment assistance services. Why not give it a try? Here are some examples:
- McGill University’s Career Planning Services
- Services en emploi et orientation from l’UQAM (in French only)
- Aide à la recherche d’emploi from l’Université de Montréal (in French only)
- Concordia University’s Career and Planning Services
92 % of recruiters use social networks to evaluate applications. That’s why it’s important to be active online, especially on LinkedIn. A professional-looking photo, an up-to-date profile and an inviting biography will get you further than you may think.
The Interconnection Program of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montréal can help you find a first job in Montréal in your field of expertise. It organizes free professional support activities that are open to post-graduation work permit holders, like speed interviews, mentorships and internships.
A significant proportion of jobs will be filled without an offer ever being published, hence the importance of developing your network of contacts. Get involved in professional associations or participate in networking events (in French only) to get to know other people and to get yourself out there.
In Québec, most people don’t include their age or civil status on their CV. And no picture either!
