My road to permanent resident (PR) status in Canada was never easy. I had to encounter different stumbling blocks before I earned my PR visa. No pain no gain as the saying goes. Fast-forward, I successfully earned the said visa under the express entry program. The entire process took only five months.
I'm an accountant by profession in the Philippines. Before I landed, I made sure that my credentials were evaluated by the designated accounting body in Canada. In this way I can take up the bridging program so that I can earn the Chartered Professional Accountant designation soon. I also took relevant accounting certifications and online diploma courses to gain stronger Canadian credentials focusing on the standards and taxation.
I also attended various resume building sessions and I personally contacted accounting professionals in Canada to give me a feedback about my resume. They also provided good insights as to how I can be successful in finding relevant work in Canada, given my foreign credentials. Once I landed, I luckily secured job interviews and accepted job offers on accountant and auditor jobs in less than 3 weeks.
As an advice to newcomers, always control your emotions and never rush your landing. Prepare yourself first and make sure to maximize the benefits of pre-arrival services. The journey to Canada doesn't end on earning an immigrant visa. You need to continuously improve your credentials to cut the barriers as a newcomer. Learn from the experiences of other people and use it as your guide to success.
I personally thank the MHHS Group for giving their best in providing assistance in any aspect of the pre-arrival services that they offered. All information given were really helpful to us. Please continuie guiding newcomers! Cheers!
Thank you and Good luck to us all!
