Yeah looks like no express entry now.the recent draw only seems to have canadian exprience class and provincial nominee program.
if i do not qualify for canadian exprience class (never worked in canada before), express entry alone won't be sufficient? need to apply for provincial nominee program?
and i see some posts that getting PR is easy but getting a job isn't so easy. how effective is canada job bank in searching and securing a job? i work in oil and gas industry as an engineer currently.
i'm also working on this with my bf. if i get a job first, means my bf would need to find a job in the same city? how do you find jobs in the same area? any tip from those who applied as a couple?
thanks lots in advance!!!
Oil and gas? The industry is pretty dismal now. Go check out the downtown office vacancy rate in Calgary. Calgary is the heart of the oil and gas HQs. Many many lost their jobs already and they arent coming back.
Most new immigrants to Canada have their previous experience (non Canadian) totally unrecognized. They recognize for points for PR but not for job.
You have to do your engineering exams again. P Eng?
What does your bf do?
You should expect to not be able to land a job before moving to Canada. Also after landing expect only to get entry level jobs.
Very very tough for first generation immigrants.
Might be better to stay in Sg. High pay low taxes. Save up. Then retire to Malta.
