Very hard. IT may be an exception if your skills are in need. Are you planning on leaving your US employer?I already have my Express Entry profile with CRS 451. I'll get ITA if I find a job offer.
My question is, is it possible to find job before even before getting ITA? My guess is most employer won't be interested.
I'm on h1b working in IT in US for past 10 years.
It's extremely difficult since the employer needs to obtain an approved LMIA in order for this to count as a job offer (typically a 4-6 month process). To get an LMIA, the employer has to advertise the job and prove no Canadian coule be found / hired for the role. Given COVID-19 and job losses, I think getting LMIAs is going to go from very difficult to practically impossible. Recommend you forget about finding a job offer and focus on other ways to increase your points.Thanks guys.
I think I should focus on getting job offer from Canadian company but just wondering if anyone had success with that before getting PR/Work permit. If it's impossible then it would be better to focus my efforts on other ways.
