H1B folks - I have been let go and looking for a new job. Anyone has experience recruiting for European/ Canadian offices from the US? How should I go about it and how challenging was navigating the visa process?

From what I have heard, CANADIAN pr takes about 4-6 months after you get an invite . You can easily check if you qualify by going to their website . Might not be an immediate solution , but worth still getting it done

No one will interview you in Canada unless you are a permanent resident. See if you can apply for permanent residency first.

pwc1: i have heard you need a job offer to get into canada...and then pr in one year... if you say we need pr to get job... how will anyone make it into canada

You don't need a job to apply for pr. It's all points driven . Just go to their immigration site and enter your details to see where you are in terms of points . They have a cutoff above which they send an invite

D1 - I just checked and yes, that's definitely an option. It will take over 6 months though. Do you know if it is realistic to first get a job in Canada and then use it to further expedite immigration? Will Canadian employers even consider someone on h1b but no Canadian visa yet?

I am not sure about the closed visa process . Don't want to give you half naked info . Probably worth checking with some of the consultants here to see if you can transfer your h1b before it gets revoked . If you manage to get a receipt at least , that buys you time

Baked * lol

Canada market starting to do good n u shdnt have issues finding opportunities !! Once u r hired, visa process should take around 3 months

You can’t initiate shit if you are fired

Send me your resume at burnerbig4@gmail.com.

Our 4-yo Shiba Inu is the sweetest boy with humans and loved to play with other dogs. But since early March when we stopped taking him to socialize with other dogs, he’s become aggressive with dogs that he hasn’t met before. It is particularly bad with male and high-energy dogs.
