Thanks for sharing the job profile, I don't have the experience in this field however, I have worked on client facing maintenance projects and this definitely looks worth trying.
I will definitely apply for this job.
Truly appreciate our help.

You have to lie and fudge and exaggerate your resume a bit over here, otherwise you will NOT even get an interview call.

Some stupid White HR bimbo girl, with NO technical knowledge and who has a stupid HR diploma from some useless community college ( not even university ), screens your resume & has a first look at it. If certain key words from the job description are NOT in your resume, the stupid white bimbo throws your resume in garbage, she doesn't even go into detail and sees, what your real skills & qualifications are. Bimbo looks at your resume for 2-3 seconds, in her high heels & short mini skirt & tight blouse & decides not to call you for the interview.

But Once you are at the interview stage by fudging your resume, you can at least convince the stupid White HR folks to hire you after they see you in person. The worst thing that will happen is they won't hire you, but at least you reached the interview stage & at least have an opportunity to impress these uneducated racist fools.

If you tell the truth on the resume, you have ZERO chance of even being called for the interview. All the good jobs & salaries first go to the White people over here, the left overs are reserved for the Desi immigrants, who are actually more qualified & more educated than them.

This is a fact. White people don't like to work under Brown people & take orders from them, hence the cushy management & supervisory jobs & roles go to them, not coloured immigrants, who get some clerical & administrative jobs over here.

The pay gap between White people & coloured immigrants is HUGE in Canada. Their average salary is twice that of immigrants, but their education & qualification is NOT even half of yours.

A white guy with a college diploma or high school education will get the exact same job or even better job than a DESI immigrant with a Master's Degree.

Welcome to Canada !

Don't have just One resume.

You need a tailor made & different resume for each & every job you apply, with the keywords from the Job advertised being a must in your resume. As lot of times machines, not humans just scan your resume & throw it in garbage if the keywords are not present in your resume.

You can't just send the same resume to 10 different IT jobs. You have to slightly change the resume & cover letter to fit the 10 jobs you are applying to, so 10 different resumes for 10 different jobs.

White people don't have to go through this because nepotism is rampant in Canada. They get their jobs from their references,connections, family & friends, who get them in. Especially true in the Public sector over here.

Desis simply don't have the resources, references & networking & skin colour to compete with them.:cry:

Just suggestion ( I am sure you don't require it )
Prepare specific resume for each job you apply , sometime you can show more than what you are and some time s show less - depend upon job requirement .

I worked in IT for a long time in Canada before moving to US. Many Canadian employers (full time) like HR interview first before technical. Many new immigrants never made HR interview and reach to 2nd round technical interview. If possible and local then try to make face to face interview/meeting than on phone.
Here are few things for HR interview:

1. New immigrants have accent so speak slowly and clear
2. This is not an interview to show your super tech knowledge so make sure you can explain in balance term between tech and business side knowledge
3. Try to connect your previous experience with existing job requirement
4. Do not bring hard salary number or give me anything. Open for competitive market salary and demand.
5. Some employees may feel threaten with words like automation, programming, offshore operation or robotics so if your job deals this kind of skills than try to connect dots with more demand of work and people.
6. When I take technical interview I would not like resume more than 3 pages max and no one cares what were you doing 10 year before, your hobbies, married status, %age in exams, when did you finish your 12th or colleges projects

Guys I have tailored my CV as a software developer, application support engineer , product manager in every way possible. But they just don't budge.
Recently , I joined a group on meet up and I am planning to meet professionals over there. I guess I need to meet people so that I can't build on my network and see how it works. I agree face value works!


The funny part is that I can see so many errors on these websites while filling up the registration forms and I am like you should at least call me!

That's true. Sometimes they will tell you, you are overqualified for the job and sometimes they will tell you , you are under qualified for the job.

Overqualified is just as bad, as they know you are not going to stick around for long and after getting some experience, you are going to quit. So they won't hire you.

Sadly, sometimes you have to dumb down your resume just to get a job. If the job only requires a Bachelor's degree, then you have to hide your Master's Degree and apply for that job, so you don't get that Overqualified excuse.

I have applied for jobs in the past, where I have even left out certain past employers from my resume & some education from my resume, as I felt it was irrelevant to the job I am applying for, and it might actually be a negative and not a positive to list all that.

More is always not better in Canada.

Try jobbank.gc.ca also.

The professionals here are a joke.

After you meet them you will realise how stupid & illiterate some of them are, yet these fools have well paying jobs and smart/intelligent desi people like us are jobless or underemployed, due to the rampant racism, discrimination & nepotism by Canadian employers.

We are busy working in Wal Mart, Tim Hortons, Cab driving, Petrol Pumps, Pizza delivery, General labour in Warehouses/Factories, Security guards, so these White racist fools can have a good life.

They basically want educated immigrant labour, so they can have educated servants & maids in various sectors working for them.

Their technical knowledge & skills are ZERO, but they are good at small talk, kissing ass, going to a bar to have a few drinks after work, playing golf with the boss, talking about the stupid weather, talking about ice HOCKEY which is another stupid sport no one cares about besides Canada, being fake & artificial and exchanging pleasentries like " Hi, How are you ? How was your weekend ? blah blah..., while bitching & gossiping about you behind your back.

Desis are good at technical skills & academics like Math, Physics etc, and we don't do any of the nonsense above, due to cultural differences/shock & our upbringing. So our values & principles, make us lag behind.:(

Don't underestimate yourself and don't devalue your education, skills & qualifications just because Canada doesn't value it or recognises it.

The racist white people here, have an agenda.

They deliberately devalue your education/experience as you are a threat to them. They know if you realise your full potential, you will go much above them. They are very well aware of how good your credentials are, but pretend that they don't recognise them.

So they want to break your confidence, self esteem & self respect by constantly telling you, how we need Canadian experience & Canadian education and we don't care about your Indian education/experience.

A day will come, when even you will also start believing this nonsense and forget that you are an engineer, doctor, CA, architect and start doing low level survival jobs. That in a nut shell is " Canada's Immigration Policy " and Canada's needs.
