How to get an LMIA job offer from Canada
A job offer can be life-changing, but getting one can be difficult at the best of times, and in the current climate, they are even harder to come by. However, armed with knowledge and some insider tips from an experienced lMIA recruiter like me, you’ll stand a much better chance of getting one than if you went it alone. Here are my top five tips on how to get an LMIA job offer!
Lmia Job Offer Requirements
Before you can be considered for an LMIA job offer, you will need to complete several tasks. These may include holding certain certifications, attaining certain degrees, and logging certain hours of experience. Any company hiring within your field will have these requirements listed on their website. Take note of these before seeking employment with that organization. Once you’ve found a company offering an opening in your area of expertise, approach them and ask about their specific requirements for employment.
Find Jobs on LinkedIn
Finding and applying for jobs on LinkedIn is easy. Set up your own profile in order to allow employers to find you or look through current openings, and then click Search Jobs on any page of LinkedIn. You can also search for specific job openings using keywords and location information. Click Apply Now when you’ve found a position that interests you, and you’ll be redirected directly to that company’s website.
Find Jobs on jobsbank canada
You can search and apply for any Canadian jobs you like on Jobsbank Canada, which pulls in listings from various online job banks. As with other online jobs databases, you should have multiple copies of your resume on hand and tailor it to each position for which you apply. Remember that different employers will also want varying amounts of information about your education, skills, and experience. Be ready to provide any additional details that an employer might ask for—but don’t go overboard.
Here’s what you need to do if you want to increase your chances of getting an LMIA job offer. First, review key areas of your personal resume and rework it. Then take up additional online courses or coaching lessons so you’re ready for most interview questions. Continue studying skills that will benefit your career growth with books and other learning materials. Research companies where you wish to work and learn more about their needs and goals for future employees.
Get an in with hiring managers
It’s time to figure out how you can actually make it into an interview room. Perhaps you have friends who work there or have worked there in the past, or maybe you go on LinkedIn and send a request for an informational interview with someone high up at your dream company. Regardless of what your strategy is, getting an in with hiring managers will help significantly improve your chances of scoring a job offer down the line. And yes, informational interviews are important!
Review the Job Description and Company Information
The first step in looking for jobs is doing your research. You need to know what employers are looking for, and that’s where reviewing their job descriptions comes in. They’ll tell you everything from what kind of experience they want candidates to have and how many years they expect them to be employed.
In addition, you’ll want to review all of their contact information, including their business address and phone number. Write that down so you can easily look it up later. Finally, take some time to research their website and social media pages. Do they have an active Twitter feed? If so, is it regularly updated? How about their LinkedIn page? Has it been updated recently?
Do Your Research
Make sure you know what employers expect from their applicants. Look at employment listings, do some research on your industry and make sure you have read about your potential future employer. Putting time into doing research will make it easier for you in your interview and show that you have put thought into where you are going in life.
Get Feedback From Others in the Industry
This can be your family and friends, as well as professionals in your field. Ask for honest feedback about your resume and cover letter. Talk with mentors who can let you know if you’re headed in the right direction or whether there are elements of your resume or interview strategies that need fine-tuning. Get other people’s perspectives on what an employer would like, what catches their eye, and what doesn’t.
Get A Letter of Recommendation
According to LMI’s human resources team, you should use networking, not blind application submission, as your primary strategy for landing an interview. If possible, find someone at LMI who can write you a letter of recommendation. Even if it isn’t possible for them to do so directly, they might be able to put you in touch with someone who can help open some doors.
Follow Up with the Hiring Manager
People can’t read your mind. That means it’s essential you follow up with hiring managers after interviews and make sure they know where you stand in terms of their organization and how much you want them.
Ask for an Interview
Don’t rely on applying online. Research companies you’re interested in and ask them if they have any openings. You can do it over email, or make an appointment with someone in HR. If they don’t have any positions available, but think you may be good for something else at some point in time, tell them you’d love to work there, and would like to know when (and what) new opportunities open up.
