International Students: Introduction to Finding Jobs in Canada


Macdonald-Stewart Building MS2-084, 21111 Lakeshore Road, St Anne de Bellevue, QC, H9X 3V9, CA

As an international student, the job search process can feel particularly daunting. There are work permits to consider, and it can be more challenging to communicate your skills and experience to an employer. This workshop will help you to identify the kind of work you would like to do, and understand how to seek out those work opportunities. We'll also discuss conventions around CVs, cover letters, and interviews in Canada, so that you can make the best possible impression with employers.


This workshop is tailored for international students and recent immigrants to Canada. By attending this workshop, students will be able to:

  1. Identify some of the legal considerations of work in Canada as an international student
  2. Develop strategies for conveying skills and achievements to an employer
  3. Identify the primary job search steps involved in obtaining a part-time, summer or post-graduation job in Canada.
