I didn't get just one job in the US, I never was jobless in the US, I never collected unemployment benefits in the US, I always was employed in the US and it never took me more than 60 days to land a job in the US, if I was actively looking for one. 1. I never said life was easy in the US , or that getting a job in the competitive US market was easy, especially in the field you want and specialize in. If there is a post where I said "life in the US is easy" or "getting the job in the US is easy" then point that to me. 2. What I said was that it was impossible for me and my spouse to land any job interview in Canada, despite sending hundreds of resumes for many months in the row as we were desperately trying to get employment and move to Canada to meet our RO. I also was told , including by some people on this forum, that you must network and have connections to get a job in Canada, even an entry level /survival job. I comared such sorry state of Canadian job market to the existing job market in the US (even the worst of US job market during Obama years) and said that Canadian job market (in comparison) is that of the Third World country, where you must have a connection and someone to "fix it" for you to get any type of job (with right connections you can get a great job in Rwanda), while in the US you can write your resume, open your lap top, browse the internet, apply for jobs and get employed in a matter of 60 days. None of it implies that life in the US is easy, or that getting a job in the US is easy. In fact it's difficult and been difficult since major economic downturn in 2008. It takes a lot of effort to get a job in highly competitive job market here (sending resumes every day and getting several interviews, failing one or two before finally getting a job offer at the end of that 30 to 60 day time period is exhasuting, nerve racking, demanding and frankly very trying task), but it's doable, it's possible, and with the right amount of pressure, effort and push you will get employed in the US, not only in survival job but in the field of your specialization, and without any networking and "fixing" by an insider. We were unable to get even an interview in Canada, after investing tens of times more effort than to land a job in the US. Please do not put into my mouth your words. Read my statements as they are. Thank you. As to individual aspect of it, I have shared a thread from this forum which already has 13 pages, where a lot of Indians tell other Indians not to come to Canada unless they want to get depressed, stay jobless or drive taxi cabs with PhD's and engeneer's degrees. You can scroll up, see the link to this forum and posts of dozens of newly immigrated Canadian PR's in my former post. Blame them too for not being able to accomplish what Indians are able to accomplish in the US. P.S. If Canada has 10 times less population, in theory it should be so much easier to get a job in Canada, as more population equals more competition and oversaturation of the job market. Unless, of course, Canadian economy sucks and underperforms to such a great extent that it can't keep employed even 1/10 of the US active working population. Which, btw, begs the question: why Canada then oversells those PR visas that are issued under supposed need for skilled workers in the Canadian job market? If anything, Canada has overpopulation and oversaturation in its' job market and the last thing it should do is bring more PR's to its' already struggling job market. And if PR's voluntarily leave, Canadians should be happy about it, instead of overzealosly enforcing RO on very people whom they granted PR to fulfill the nonexisting demand for skilled workers in its' job market. Let those PR's go and return when there will be a genuine demand for their skills in Canadian job market.
