Find A Job As An Immigrant – 3 Free & Easy Ways To Success!
The processes to find a job as an immigrant and immigrating to another country is expensive.
I hear that every day!
For this incredibly complex and minefield-ridden process, immigrants pay an immigration adviser $4,000, $6,500 or even as much as $15,000.
…and then they only get help with their legal immigration process.
It is also wrought with obstacles and immigrants make several mistakes when they try and find a job overseas.
That immigration adviser is not a specialist in finding a job for them. It is not his job. Period.
Finding a job as an immigrant – from a distance – is your job.
It is a tough one…
And, if you have already spent a whole lot of cash on your immigration adviser to help you through the legal process minefield, then their might be little cash left to help you with job finding.
Yet – it is crucial that you find a job as an immigrant – to qualify for the legal stuff.
So, here’s help: Here are 3 ways that will help you find a job as an immigrant – without spending a dime:
1. Determine your eligibility to find a job as an immigrant
Before you jump the gun and pay a lot more money for a professional CV writer to write a CV for you and start sending that expensive CV off to jobs online – first, determine your eligibility to even enter your new country.
That eligibility test or assessment, will also determine the nature of your job search strategy.
And, if you do this right, then your job finding process will be so much easier.
To determine your eligibility, just visit the official immigration pages for your destination country. When there, perform an eligibility assessment. Most countries’ immigration pages offer this as a free service.
If you have trouble, email the authorities with your questions, but make sure that you have a good idea of the requirements and ask meaningful questions.
It will tell you which visa you qualify for, should you receive a job offer.
That whole process of determining your eligibility will help your job search process tremendously: It will tell you which jobs you should pursue and in some instances also give you helpful resources to find a job as an immigrant.
I want to tell you a little secret here:
If you start with establishing your eligibility – either by a free assessment on the immigration page, or by asking a licensed immigration adviser, you can answer “yes” on those job ads where it asks whether you are eligible to work in your destination country.
2. Research – and research well
Your research – performed well – will provide you with targets:
Following a targeted, structured approach, will save you time and money.
It will provide you with a whole lot of information about how to find a job as an immigrant – about the job market to even potential employers that can be approach directly because they favour immigrants and will help with the visa process.
And yes, research is free, if you know how to do it well yourself.
3. Be found as a potential candidate
Tweaking, improving and creating a unique immigrant’s LinkedIn profile will not only make your LinkedIn profile pop to the top in searches. It will also bring you jobs that will help you find a job as an immigrant.
Done well, it will bring you visa sponsored jobs from potential employers who are actively recruiting immigrants.
It will also enable you to connect to, engage and interact and build relationships with potential, targeted employers in your destination country.
And, yes, it is free.
Now, all of this may be a little overwhelming and sound too much to handle – especially if the whole immigration process is difficult already.
