We’re all about the job posting.
The key to preparing a great resume is your understanding of the Canadian job posting and the ability to transfer and demonstrate your knowledge and experience in Canadian context. We show you how to do this and build your confidence when applying for jobs in Canada.
Your Canadian industry knowledge is the most important part of your Canadian job search, whether you’re a newcomer to Canada or waiting for your papers to immigrate.
We assist you with your job postings and resumes by showing you how to understand the content of a Canadian job posting. We then assist with transferring this new knowledge to your resume. FOCUSINDUSTRY has manuals for every area of job search and will customize our manuals for your target industry in Canada.
You not only want to get a phone call for a job interview, you also want to outshine your competition for the same position!
Examples of Canadian industry knowledge:
Are you a Civil engineer?
Civil engineering industry practices: codes, standards, regulations, suppliers, trades and unions, design software, Canadian contacts, government tenders and bids, Request for Proposals. These are just some areas where a newcomer to Canada will not be familiar with or have local experience. This is where FOCUSINDUSTRY’s manuals and training prepare you for job search.
