Remember to remain persistent and open-minded during your job search, as it may take time to secure a role directly aligned with your profession.

While many language and job search services offered through bridging programs are free, it’s important to note that some programs may have associated fees. Additionally, classroom training or work experience is typically an integral part of these programs.

To discover bridging programs in your area, consider reaching out to the following resources:

  • Professional Association or Regulatory Body: Contact the professional association or regulatory body associated with your specific profession or trade. They can provide information on bridging programs tailored to your field.
  • Local Immigrant-Serving Organization: Connect with a local immigrant-serving organization, as they often have knowledge of and access to various bridging programs. They can guide you to resources specific to your location.

The role of job interviews in finding the right match

Once you have submitted your résumé and cover letter, the employer will review your application and determine whether to invite you for a job interview. The interview process serves as an opportunity for both parties to assess suitability:

Job Interview: If selected, you will be invited for a job interview. During this process, the employer aims to meet you in person and ask relevant questions to evaluate your qualifications and fit for the job. Simultaneously, the interview allows you to gather more information about the job and the organization, enabling you to make an informed decision about your interest in working there.

It is important to note that it is common to send multiple résumés and cover letters to different employers before receiving an invitation for a job interview.

Formal Job Offer: If the employer decides to hire you, you will receive a formal job offer. This offer outlines the terms and conditions of employment, including details such as salary, benefits, working hours, and start date. Take the time to carefully review the offer and ensure that it aligns with your expectations and requirements.

Remember, the job interview is a crucial step in the hiring process. Prepare for interviews by researching the organization, practicing common interview questions, and showcasing your skills and experiences effectively. Keep in mind that each job application is unique, and you may need to go through multiple interviews before receiving a formal job offer.
