Hello, I am a computer science engineer with multiple microsoft certifications and 8 years of experiencie, my wife has finished her studies as "business international" professional.


I am looking for a good city to live and get a job if possible in our career, I know its difficult but with my skills and certifications, its very possible.

I wanted Vancouver, or Ottawa, but it seems vancouver its very expensive to start living there.

Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and even Calgary would be target markets I would look at.. Here are sites you can keep a look at that can help you find work..

FYI, Vancouver need not be in the City area. Victoria has some good companies and describing your work abilities might have been a better start

I guess you have to decide first on the weather you want. Where do you live now?
If you want a long cold winter or don't mind one, go east. If you want a short damp winter, come out west. Vancouver is expensive but like everywhere else, prices are dropping. On a personal level, I would not live in the East. I'll take every raindrop over every snowflake. I mean you no dis-respect but - make sure you use your spell check on your resume.

By the way I want to send my application with Province Nomination program, I have sent a couple of resumes but I understand that its very difficult for a company to sponsor somebody who does not even know, eventough his resume is awesome.

Do you have any suggestions on which companies might sponsor me for the PNP?

If you Google.com - Newcomers to Canada, Vancouver, B.C. has a few listings - and they may be able to steer you in the right direction regarding sponsorship or some kind of advocacy program.

UBS and Simon Fraser University also will have programs which can provided you with information.

It seems many of these help groups are more concerned with ESL whereas you are bi-lingual (or multi linqual) and would be a tremendous asset to any international company with offices in Canada/Vancouver. The community centers may also have instituted sponsorships if you call around - or the main Park Board offices.

I am now going to have a day trying to curb my jealousy thinking of your new exciting adventure!

Good luck! Curio

levalencia, first of all, learn a bit of modesty.

As an immigrant myself - mind you, from a bygone time when immigrants realized that they can't expect to start at the top - I advise you to polish up on your English first. Then learn about your new country so you won't have to gather information from politically correct sympathetic respondents on an insignificant public forum.

No matter how "awesome" your resume is, there are - I am sure - thousands of others born in Canada who could match your resume with an equally awesome resume of their own.

Prepare to get a job that will put bread and butter on your table, but one that you might not like. Millions of other immigrants did just that. Prove yourself to your new country. If and when you do, the rewards will follow.

Of course, if you can claim special priviledge under Affirmative Action, you've got it made.

I'm sorry - I made a typo - it was UBC - University of British Columbia

Jealousy is affecting my eyesight

Hello YukonJack, I am aware that I might not start working as a computer science engineer once I arrive to Vancouver, but I am positive, I know a person that before leaving Colombia he studied a lot to perfect the language and that helped him a lot to get a job on his career on 45 days after arriving. So one thing is sure, I will practice a lot more my english, for interviews, social situations, because right now I only practice english reading and writing.

What kind of others job you think I can do there? selling computers? repairing? working on a restaurant?

Thanks
