I get this question quite often: How do I, as an immigrant, find a Canadian Job?
John Ribero and Connel Valentine lead CanadianJobSearchAcademy.com and host the Zero2Hire podcast. They help newcomers to Canada start the perfect life with online on-demand videos that shows you how to convert job applications to job offers. They act as advocates, but, by no means are immigration experts. They want to help guide Canadian immigrants to find jobs they love.
