Resume and cover letter, a fundamental step in Canada
But isn't a resume enough, do I also need a cover letter? The answer is yes. Tara Orchard, a Canadian social media specialist and career coach, explains that creating a formal cover letter is always helpful. This way, the person is forced to focus on who they are and what they have to offer. Also, the cover letter should be personalized and not generic, this in order to attract the attention of the employer and show the interest you have to work in their company.
In the current COVID-19 environment, many Canadian employers have changed their traditional approach to hiring and are now more open to conducting job interviews virtually.
In these times of uncertainty, it is a tremendous opportunity to build good relationships with future employers, either by setting foot in the interview and having an in-person conversation or by starting by working remotely from your home country until you have a chance to enter Canada. Remember that a network must be cultivated, the better the relationship with the employer, the better the chances of being considered for permanent employment.
