How does Career Services work for International students?
Your employability in Canada is completely dependent on you being able to independently obtain a work visa or find an employer who is willing to sponsor you. Unfortunately, we are legally unable to help you obtain a work visa. Obtaining a work visa independently is completely dependent on your unique situation, including your educational or professional background, the type of job you want, as well as the country you are coming from.
We encourage you to become an expert in your own immigration by contacting Canadian Citizenship and Immigration or an immigration lawyer as early as possible.
Our Career Services team will speak to you about your individual situation and come up with a plan on how we can best support your job hunt, be it in Canada or elsewhere. If you are unable to work in Canada, we are not able to directly connect you with employers, but we are still happy to support you through resume workshops, technical interviewing coaching, and networking tips.
