FOCUSINDUSTRY's main goal is to get people moving to Canada those already here ready for employment. Through job search manuals developed by professionals working in the fields of job search and job development with newcomers to Canada and the urgent need to gt a job. What we have learned is that the better-prepared one is for their new workforce and industry, the more marketable and appealing they are to Canadian employers.

Weather you work in marketing, IT, engineering, healthcare, education, science, transit, environment or project management, we provide the tools and strategies necessary for marketing yourself to Canadian employers.

Our job search manuals are not books. They are hands-on research techniques and strategies we're been teaching job seekers for years. They work. People get hired. We learn from Canadian employers then share this information with job seekers.

We break down the steps to self-marketing for employment. Research, learning about a target industry, networking with people in your target industry and creating customized resumes and cover letters are the key to employment.
