First time find a job in Vancouver

Hey friends! It’s Hazel again😊

Last time I’ve explained how having work experiences helped me find a job after I graduated from college. Today I’m going to share some small tips to help you find a job in Vancouver.

To begin with resume. Did you know professional resume in Canada doesn’t include pictures?! Your resume should be clean, clear, and well-organized. Highlight your work experience, leadership roles, and volunteer activities. Use numbers to support your achievements and showcase your abilities.

Connections are key. Build a strong LinkedIn profile and don’t be afraid to reach out for coffee chats. Networking can lead to referrals, which are invaluable in your job search.

Don’t forget about the resources available at our college. The CNC Co-op Coordinator is here to help you navigate the process of finding your first big girl/boy job after graduation. They can provide guidance on everything from resume writing to interview preparation.

Good luck, and remember, every small step counts!
