Newcomers in Canada, especially permanent residents, are experienced and educated professionals who leave behind well-settled careers in their home country. A large motivator for newcomers is the hope to find relevant opportunities in their field of choice, or even a new industry. While some are able to find employment quickly, others take a while before they receive an offer that aligns with their expectations and aspirations.
