Marketing, Advertising, Public Relation Candidates

Discussion in 'Finding Work in Canada' started by chikoo1985, Jun 4, 2017.

  1. Hello All,
    I am opening this thread in hope to make a communication platform for professionals who have background in Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations etc... Those are moving to Canada or already in Canada with above mentioned background let's connect and try to help each other.

  2. Hi, I have a background on commercial art. And lately I have been working on digital marketing and SEO. Are these good skills to have to be able to travel and stay in Canada? I am a citizen of the United States but I can't stay here with Trump I feel threatened since I am also an immigrant and my family is mixed.
  3. Those are good skills for sure and the demand is going to be increasing for trained professionals. I am not sure about the Canada market. I have open this thread in a hope to meet people who are planning to migrate to Canada with mentioned background and we can do some networking beforehand.

    I would suggest that if you citizen of the U.S.then don't leave. Trump is making rules for new immigrants and not for the existing one but it's your choice.
  4. This information alone isn't enough for us to be able to tell you what your chances are of being able to move to Canada. If you want to come to Canada as a temporary worker, you first need to secure a full time job offer from an employer in Canada.

    If you want to move permanently (immigrate), the process is a lot more involved and you'll need to research the requirements and options here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/apply.asp

  6. Yes that will be great. I am in process of receiving FBI pcc and hoping to submit the application by Next week. Let see.
    I did not found any job and honestly not even started hunting it. Will start after submitting the application.

    For which company are you working for? India or abroad?
  7. I'm working in India for Digital Marketing of an IT company. Honestly, there is lot of negativity everywhere online about jobs in Canada after PR. Maybe the one's who actually got a job got busy in setting up there.

    Also, this post has a mention of a whatsapp group for all marketing professionals in Canada. Any idea what's the number to join in?

  8. Hi, I'm a digital marketing professional working mostly as a writer for SEO articles, social media, and writing SMB landing pages.

    I'm fairly young with less than 5 years of work experience, I'm afraid companies won't like that so much. I just came back to Canada after being removed as a minor and I just want to know how the industry is here. Should I take a survival job first and go back to school to up my credentials?
  9. Hello,
    so far, as per my research and observation I think marketing is not strong field when it comes to job opportunity. Digital marketing is something is not so well developed field. So in a way I think one can create opportunities for oneself by working as freelancer or opening an agency which does not require big investment.

    When you say your work ex is mostly as writer then I would recommend you to get the new certificates like Google analytics or adwords. This will really help you.

    for sales and marketing networking is the Key... ALWAYS!

  10. Just posting to see if any of you guys has better understanding of the market in canada?

  11. So I have received PPR and waiting for COPR and it looks like I may be landing in Canada in few months. Considering the market trend December jan are the slowest period for any hiring. I may land there around Jan first week so that I have enough time for settling down and Job hunting. Most probably British Columbia is the place I may prefer to settle. It's second best after Toronto/Ontario in terms of job opportunities. Let see.

    Any input from more experienced guys will be appreciated.
  12. Hi guys, I have 6 years experience in Marketing with brand and retail companies and will be landing in Toronto in early February. Hit me up if there are any opportunities or tips! Thanks
  13. Hi Mark,

    Good to know you are done with all the process. Please keep us all updated about your job search experience. Meanwhile we will let you know if we come across any opportunities in Marketing.

    All the best!
  14. Hi,

    Brand Strategist here, with 10yrs experience in Design, Advertising and Marketing. I also draw cartoons. I received my COPR about a month ago and considering making the big move this December. Looking at Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto as potential new homes. I am excited for this next chapter and can't wait to see what happens.

    I am currently taking the SOPA / MOSAIC Settlement course which is great and I recommend anyone that has their PPR to join.

    All the best in your individual journeys, can't wait to hear how it all works out.

    Stay positive, stay focused.
  15. We could explore establishing an agency..Just a thought though :D All we need now are customers and supplier contacts.
