5 Little Reasons You Didn’t Get the Interview



Tumbling blocks are mandatory in LIFE that keeps one away from acquiring an interview that’s beyond control: your past experience in comparison of other candidates, your salary experiments and among others.

However, it’s not in anyone’s hands to have control over the job search process, there might be certain aspects that can be controlled- bugs that are easy to fix you’ll really feel relaxed at how small span it’ll consume.

So if you’re struggling to survive the next round, here are five modifications you can make that won’t need an entire job search makeover.


  1. Your Application’s too long

Here’s a tiny hint: Each and every sentence in your cover letter should have an impact. Lacking fluff, buzzwords, no beating around the bush. If you abide by this rule, your cover letter will be the perfect length (at most, one page)—and the hiring manager would go-through the whole thing.

And when resume is taken into consideration, avoid making an attempt to cross that one-page mark there either. While you may be very proficient, it’s doubtful that the person reading it will ever get to the next page. And instead of focusing on your accomplishments, he or she will probably get beleaguered by the absolute amount of information accessible there and not be able to focus in on why you’re the right candidate.


  1. You Make Careless Errors

There’s possibility you might have missed a word on your resume, you’d have spelled the hiring manager’s name wrong, or you forgot to attach your cover letter. It’s OK, but avoid repeating let it again. Use spell-check, have a friend to crosscheck, and double check the requirements prior hitting that submit button. And, if you still happen to press “send” before fixing your error, recognizing the error could be a great way to redress yourself.


  1. Your Materials Don’t Open

It would be very upsetting to realize that you missed an interview since the recruiter couldn’t open your file, or opened it to an entirely weird layout, and just gave up?

So, perform your attentiveness to ensure it appears good no matter what by testing it on numerous browsers and smartphones to witness if anything gets cut off or reformatted. It’s a ridiculous, but very mandatory step in the process.


  1. You Miss Deadlines

Certain jobs bear particular deadlines—February 11 at midnight—while others are rolling. Even if it appears like the opening is live, it’s probable they’re not looking at new applicants at the instance.

Numerous processes may be a crapshoot, which is why it’s important to scrutinize postings constantly. And if one hits your interest, best recommendation is to apply right away—the more you setback, the more possibly it is that when your application finally makes it in, the company has already started taking into other candidates.

And if it’s for a short span, it never harms to ping the hiring manager or HR department on LinkedIn to ask if they’re still looking. Specifically if they are, that gives you an edge.


  1. You Are Clearly Mass Emailing

Last but not least, your cover letter and emails might seem fine, but if you deal with them “To the Hiring Manager” or copy and pasted your content word for word without even considering the name of the company you’re talking to, you’re not doing any wonders for yourself.

Each year, millions of people are forced to flee their homelands to escape persecution, war or severe human rights abuses. Often these people can never return home.

The Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program helps thousands of refugees every year. You or your group can sponsor refugees from abroad who qualify to come to Canada. As a sponsor, you provide financial and emotional support for the refugees for the duration of the sponsorship. This includes help for housing, clothing and food. Most sponsorships last for one year, but some refugees may be eligible for assistance from their sponsors for up to three years.

Refugees must qualify for entry under Canada’s laws and must pass medical and security checks before they can come to Canada.

The top eight careers of the future in Canada

come to canada


According to the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario’s Canadian Postsecondary Performance: Impact 2015 report, between two per cent and 15 per cent of Canadian university graduates aged 25 to 34 are unemployed. What’s more, between eight per cent and 27 per cent aren’t working in a job related to their studies three years after graduation.

The numbers are similar for college grads; between two per cent and 14 per cent were unemployed and between 12 per cent and 21 per cent were not working in a job related to their schooling.

The statistics varied depending on which province students studied in.


  1. Teacher

Median salary expectations: Starting at between $50,000 to $55,000/year.

Schooling needed: Bachelor’s degree in education.

The outlook: “You have to have a real passion for wanting to help people better themselves”, Boswell explains. “You have to enjoy working with children, seeing them learn and help them to grow.” Although the competition for teachers in some provinces is tight now, Boswell says it’s a job that will always be in demand. Both elementary school and high school level teachers will be needed, however high school teachers will see the most demand. According to the Government of Canada’s Job Bank, provinces and territories with the best outlook for elementary teachers are in Alberta, The Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Québec and the Yukon. Poor growth is expected in Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The rest of Canada, however, is expected to experience fair demand. For high school teachers, Manitoba, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Yukon will see the most growth while Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia will see the least.


  1. Informatics security analyst

Median salary expectations: Starting at around $64,000/year.

Schooling needed: Bachelor’s degree in computer science or in a related field. Some jobs in this field may require a Master’s degree.

The outlook: “More and more data requires much more information security,” Boswell says. “(This job) is working with companies to ensure that their networks and systems are secure.” For this type of career, Boswell says, people must love the computer sciences. New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Québec and Nunavut will have the highest demand for the job. The rest of Canada, with the exception of the Northwest Territories, will see moderate growth in this type of employment.


  1. Market research analyst

Median salary expectations: Starting at around $50,000/year.

Schooling needed: Bachelor’s degree in market research, marketing or statistics.

The outlook: “It’s one of the best future jobs because markets are in a constant flux,” says Boswell. “New competitors are entering the market all the time so companies need to stay on top of who their competitors are and also who is purchasing their products.” The best candidates for this career are people with analytical minds and critical thinking skills. Growth is expected to be limited in Saskatchewan and P.E.I. The rest of Canada, however, will see a healthy demand. The cities where the industry will be booming are Ottawa and Hamilton-Niagara.


  1. Construction manager

Median salary expectations: Starting at around $85,000/year.

Schooling needed: College or university education in civil engineering, construction management or a related field or an apprenticeship.

The outlook: “I mention this job but with a bit of caution,” Boswell says. “It’s high in demand now because there is such a boom in construction… But if this boom does taper off then it may not be as viable as some other careers.” And while construction jobs didn’t require much education in the past, Boswell says that will no longer be the case as construction companies become sophisticated and take on more complex projects. This job would appeal to those who are leaders and like to work outside. Manitoba, New Brunswick, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Ontario are all expected to see high growth. Alberta is the only province that is predicting poor demand.


  1. Lawyer

Median salary expectations: Starting at around $72,000/year.

Schooling needed: Bachelor’s degree in pre-law, a first-level law degree and passing the bar exam.

The outlook: According to Boswell, law school enrollments have been on a steady decline. The Law School Admission Council reports a 38 per cent decrease in applicants since 2010. “There is always going to be a need for lawyers,” says Boswell. “But there’s been this sharp decline in enrollment so that demand is going to be there across all fields like corporate law, criminal defence and family law.” Boswell says that those going into law should be committed and passionate about the profession as it involves a lot of schooling. They should also be driven and articulate. British Columbia, Manitoba, Nunavut and Québec will see high demand, while the rest of Canada is expected to see a healthy moderate demand.


  1. Registered nurse (RN)

Median salary expectations: Starting at around $60,000/year.

Schooling needed: Bachelor’s degree in nursing.

The outlook: Much like law school, nursing schools across Canada are seeing less enrollment. According to the College of Nurses of Ontario, the number of applicants for RN registration across Canada dropped 23 per cent between 2010 and 2015. Because of this, Boswell says the high demand for nurses is already there and will continue for many years. People who are compassionate, caring, able to handle stress and have stamina will make for great nurses. Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, the Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario and Yukon will all see very strong growth. The remaining provinces are still expected to see a healthy and steady demand.


  1. Software developer

Median salary expectations: Starting at around $61,000/year.

Schooling needed: Bachelor’s degree in computer science or related field.

The outlook: “(Information technology) jobs are the highest in demand,” Boswell says. “The emergence of gaming software developers wasn’t something that existed years ago but now it’s something that’s really high in demand, but there’s also other types of software that will be a part of our future.” Those ideal for the job are creative and enjoy design. The job includes the research, design, development, implementation and testing phases of software. Strong demand will be in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and parts of Québec. Demand is expected to be low in Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador.


  1. Marketing manager

Median salary expectations: Starting at around $85,000/year.

Schooling needed: Bachelor’s degree in marketing, public relations, communications or related fields.

The outlook: “A marketing manager focuses on strategies to push their products and services,” says Boswell. “Much like a marketing analyst, it’s a high in-demand job we will see in the future.” Because of that high demand, competition will be fierce so the more education you have the better, she says. Creative people who understand market trends and are good communicators will do well in this career. New Brunswick, Nunavut, P.E.I. and some parts of Manitoba will have high demand while Saskatchewan and Alberta will see slow growth.

Você sabia que o Canadá é considerado a terra dos Engenheiros?


Uma pesquisa recente apontou que até 2020 irão surgir até 16.000 vagas na área

De acordo com uma pesquisa realizada pela *Randstad Canada, em parceria com a Engineers Canada, com o tema “Projeções da Engenharia para 2020”, revela que o crescimento do mercado em British Columbia, Alberta e demais províncias renderá grandes oportunidades de trabalho para os profissionais da Engenharia nos próximos anos.

Segundo dados, aproximadamente 16.000 vagas de emprego estarão disponíveis até 2020 nas regiões citadas. Anualmente, são necessários 900 profissionais para suprir o mercado em Alberta. Já em Manitoba, o aumento está na área da Engenharia da Construção, que requer profissionais qualificados.

As empresas de BC receberão engenheiros migrando de diversos locais durante a próxima década. O próximo foco é contratar engenheiros especializados e experientes para substituir os trabalhadores que se aposentam. A idade média dos trabalhadores em British Columbia é maior do que em outras províncias, o que aumenta a necessidade de substituição.

Além de garantir uma visão mais ampla sobre os principais fatores que irão interferir no crescimento econômico e industrial no período entre 2011 e 2020, o relatório da pesquisa sugere uma melhoria no planejamento de recursos humanos para os trabalhadores da área e reforça que a melhor estratégia para os próximos anos é reter os profissionais com mais experiência no mercado de trabalho, disponibilizando programas de desenvolvimento, com o objetivo de acelerar a produção dos recém-graduados.

Conheça as regiões que possuem mais oportunidades:

Saskatchewan: As diversas ramificações da profissão estão presentes na província, mas as restrições das vagas são um problema para aqueles que buscam uma oportunidade nesse mercado. Alguns projetos contam com a atuação de engenheiros que estão disponíveis no mercado, especialmente aqueles que trabalham em minas. Mesmo sendo um mercado relativamente pequeno, a região de Saskatchewan tem uma demanda grande para projetos pontuais.

Alberta: Junto com a British Columbia, Alberta é um dos melhores mercados para engenheiros no Canadá. Em 2012 houve um superaquecimento da profissão. Porém, a falta de engenheiros qualificados e com experiência prejudicou a evolução do mercado. Outro fator interessante foi o aumento do número de inscritos para cursos nessa área, o que implica uma maior concorrência.

British Columbia: A província está entre os dois mercados mais fortes de Engenharia no Canadá. Atualmente enfrenta a falta de profissionais qualificados nas áreas relacionadas com mineração, metalurgia e petróleo. Por outro lado, a Engenharia da Computação e Engenharia Industrial estão bem equilibradas. Isso faz com que as empresas de engenharia de BC procurem por profissionais nas províncias ao redor, mas encontra dificuldades para atraí-los devido à remuneração.

Manitoba: O crescimento do mercado de engenharia na província está concentrado nos projetos de recursos e utilidade para gerar e transmitir energia elétrica, como Engenharia da Construção. Manitoba também sofre com a falta de profissionais qualificados e que tenham experiência na área.

The Best Cities to Live In – Toronto


The Best Cities to Live In – Metropolis reveals its 2016 rankings.

Last fall, Toronto philanthropists Judy and Wilmont Matthews donated C$25 million to build a linear park in an inhospitable place: underneath the crumbling elevated expressway that slices through the city’s waterfront. Toronto’s “Under Gardiner” project arrives during a period marked by a difficult transition from car-centric planning to pedestrian-focused design, says Toronto’s chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat. “We are coming of age as a city right now. We are at a moment when we understand the importance of creating a walkable city.”

In recent years, Toronto has been consistently ranked as one of the world’s most livable and diverse cities. Half of all Toronto residents were born outside Canada, and the region attracts 100,000 new residents each year, including many creatives and millennials drawn to the city’s arts, education, and high-tech sectors. This rapid growth, along with anti-sprawl planning and a robust regional economy, has triggered a record-breaking downtown development boom that has spurred demand for new public spaces and more livable communities.

“It’s a new way of thinking about public space beyond these polite green landscapes,” says Donald Schmitt, a principal at Diamond Schmitt Architects, which developed the Evergreen Brick Works, a former brick quarry that now functions as a wetland and heritage education site.

The city wants the design of major new buildings to reflect the porousness required in a pedestrian-oriented city. Keesmaat cites the new Snøhettadesigned student learning center at Ryerson University, which features generous seating areas that link to the street: “The design of that building is about lingering [and] recognizing that public life takes place on our streets.”

Population and densification are also informing Toronto’s approach to transit and street design. While the city’s subway network is relatively sparse, Toronto is building new light-rail transit lines, adding to its cycling infrastructure, and, in a few cases, closing or narrowing streets, as Janette Sadik-Khan did in New York during her high-profile stint as transportation commissioner.

The city and the provincial government have also made sizable investments in Union Station, the central transportation hub—recently renovated by Zeidler Partnership Architects—and last year launched an airport rail shuttle. While the Union Station upgrades were needed to handle growing commuter volumes, the air rail link has been slow to attract riders.

Meanwhile, Waterfront Toronto (WT), a publicly owned agency, is redeveloping hundreds of acres of derelict waterfront land near downtown with projects by Diamond Schmitt, KPMB, and Moshe Safdie. One recently completed waterfront space is Corktown Common, a 16-acre Michael Van Valkenburgh – designed park that anchors a 6,000-unit midrise community. WT’s vice president of planning and design Chris Glaisek says the design leverages topography, natural materials, and compelling vistas: “It creates a variety of experiences and scales, and a bit of a sense of mystery.”

With growth in financial services, mining finance, and tech, the downtown is seeing new office construction and the redevelopment of early-20th-century warehouses, plus a combination of the two, as with Entertainment One Canada’s new headquarters in QRC West, a tower by Sweeny & Co. built on stilts over an old factory. Planners have also pushed condo builders to make their high-rises more street friendly and less monolithic in their massing compared with older slab high-rises. A design panel process introduced in recent years ensures that many projects are peer reviewed for architectural quality. Kyle Rae, a former downtown councillor, cites as one of them FIVE at 5 St. Joseph, a 48-story tower by Hariri Pontarini that looms over restored 19th-century mercantile buildings. As he says of Toronto’s architectural revival, “There’s been an enormous transformation in the expectations of the city and residents.” —John Lorinc

The refugee system in Canada

Canada Express Entry 2 

Tradition of humanitarian action

Our compassion and fairness are a source of great pride for Canadians.

These values are at the core of our domestic refugee protection system and our Resettlement Assistance Program. Both programs have long been praised by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Refugees are people who have fled their countries because of a well-founded fear of persecution, and who are therefore unable to return home. Many refugees come from war-torn countries and have seen or experienced unthinkable horrors.

A refugee is different from an immigrant, in that an immigrant is a person who chooses to settle permanently in another country. Refugees are forced to flee.

Canada resettles refugees to save lives and to provide stability to those fleeing persecution who have no hope of relief. Canada’s resettlement programs are respected internationally because they provide permanent residence as a long term solution.


Canadian refugee protection programs

The Canadian refugee system has two main parts:

  • the Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program, for people seeking protection from outside Canada; and
  • the In-Canada Asylum Program for people making refugee protection claims from within Canada.


Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program

Refugees selected for resettlement to Canada have often fled their homes because of unimaginable hardships and have, in many cases, been forced to live in refugee camps for many years. When they arrive in Canada, they basically pick up the pieces of their lives and start over again.

As a member of the international community, Canada helps find solutions to prolonged and emerging refugee situations and helps emerging democracies try to solve many of the problems that create refugee populations. To do this, Canada works closely with the UNHCR.

The UNHCR, along with private sponsors identifies refugees for resettlement. Even after a refugee is identified to Canada, it takes time to process the cases.

Under our legislation, all resettlement cases must be carefully screened to ensure that there are no issues related to security, criminality or health. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) works with its security partners such as the Canada Border Services Agency to complete this work as quickly as possible.

Private sponsors across the country also help resettle refugees to Canada. Some are organized to do so on an ongoing basis and have signed sponsorship agreements with the Government of Canada to help support refugees from abroad when they resettle in Canada. These organizations are known as Sponsorship Agreement Holders. They can sponsor refugees themselves or work with others in the community to sponsor refugees. Other sponsors, known as Groups of Five and Community Sponsors, are persons/groups in the community who are not involved on an ongoing basis but have come together to sponsor refugee(s).

Canada has also introduced a third program to welcome refugees. Launched in 2013, the Blended Visa Office-Referred (BVOR) Program matches refugees identified for resettlement by the UNHCR with private sponsors in Canada.

Through these programs Canada welcomes many refugees each year.

The Great Trail in Canada

great-trail-01 great-trail-02 great-trail-03

Canada will open the largest recreational trail in the world


In 2017, Canada will complete 150 years old and has a lot cool there. One will be the official opening of The Great Trail.

The Great Trail is a trail of 24,000 km that will link the country from east to west, from the Pacific to the Atlantic and the Arctic. Many of the trails that are part of this project already existed, others have been created in disabled train lines. To give you an idea of the size of the challenge is to create a behemoth such, the construction of 202 bridges were necessary (6200 kilometers) connecting the tracks.

The trail began to be built when the country completed 125 years in 1992. So far, 87% of it is complete: 20.77 km. The trail is for cyclists, hiking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, etc. Choose your mode and go ahead.

80% of the Canadian population will be less than 30 minutes from the track and you can find the nearest trail through the interactive map.

A little history … In 1962, Canada officially opened the Trans Canada Highway. It’s the same idea of the trail (connecting different sections that existed already creating a huge network) but for cars. The Trans Canada Highway is 8030 km and is among the largest federal highways in the world, next to Highway 1 Australian and Trans-Siberian Highway in Russia. The highway was a milestone in the history of the country.

Returning to the celebration of the 150th anniversary of Canada … The government announced that by 2017, will not charge admission to national parks as part of the celebrations.

Apparently, 2017 will be an excellent year to explore the natural beauty of Canada
