Testimony: David Ruiz, the husband of a Chaim Global Ally student, tells us how he got the job he always dreamed of.
Four hours a day for four weeks. That was the time it took for David Ruiz to find the professional job he had set his sights on even before arriving in Canada.
David, who works as a mining engineer at Vale Company -a renowned multinational with a presence in different countries- told Chaim Global Ally the tips he used to get the job of his dreams.
The story of David and his family is a success story for Chaim Global Ally. David, his wife, Katya Otero, and his daughter arrived in Canada on April 9, 2019. It was not the first time they had visited the country; the idea of living, studying and working in Canada came to them after a walk in which they fell in love with the country.
Working closely with Chaim Global Ally and the law firm Angelica Gonzalez-Blanco, the Ruiz family traced the path that brought them to Canada. They chose Sudbury, Ontario, because this is a mining town where the family was projected to be successful. In addition, this city has a pilot migration program. So it was. With dedication, they have already reached their first goals.
Katy started with a pathway that got her into the Business program at Cambrian College, located in Sudbury, Ontario. For his part, David focused on getting a full-time job, since Canada gives the student’s partner the benefit of a full-time, open work permit.
At a Chaim Global Employment workshop, David recounted that the first week of his job search got no response, but his determination led him to persist and keep applying until he started getting calls from employers. One of them was from Vale Company.
Preparation was key, and Chaim Global Ally and Chaim Global Employment played a key role.
These are the tips that David Ruiz shared:
- Prepare a resume according to Canadian standards. It is not a resume or curriculum vitae.
- Have a resume for each application. I ended up with like 10 or 15.
- Write a cover letter – cover letter, for each position.
- Use the correct websites and apply to positions with your profile.
- Prepare for the interview. The first is always a call.
- Have an elevator pitch. A prepared speech in which you tell about your strengths and abilities.
- Never include a photo in the resume (CV / Life Sheet), nobody is interested in a photo.
- Apply a lot, as much as you can, even if you are in an interview process.
- Take time to apply. Looking for work is a full-time job.
- Stay focused on your goal. Don’t give up! Do not give up!
You also can achieve the goal of studying and working in Canada.
