TIPS FOR MIGRATING

Are you looking to fulfill your dreams in another country? Migrating can be complicated but we want to help you! We leave you a list of some considerations to have to make it an easy transition for you and your family

TIPS BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL

  • Find out about your destination country, because immigration policies are very different between the United States and Canada.
  • Start looking for a job before you move. Do you know the latest requirements for a work visa?
  • Make sure you are aware of the most common visa scams and how to avoid them.
  • Look for loans, scholarships, grants, and other financial aid resources to help lower costs.
  • Get tips from other people who made the trip before you. Read immigrant success stories for information and moral support.

IF YOU ARE IMMIGRATING TO THE US

  • Find out what visas you will need to work or study in the United States.
  • Get ready for the visa lottery. You will have a short period of time to apply each year.
  • Consider getting an immigration attorney. It can help you navigate rapidly changing immigration policies.
  • Before you go to job interviews, learn how to take advantage of your international education and work experience in the US.

TIPS FOR JOB SEARCH AND INTERVIEWS

  • Prepare yourself by learning about the hiring process from a human resources specialist.
  • It all starts with a strong resume. Ask someone you trust to read your resume and provide feedback.
  • Three things you should never do on your resume: Don’t include a photo of yourself, don’t mention your salary expectations, and don’t keep the information longer than one page.
  • Customize your cover letter for each company and job opportunity. It takes a lot of time, but it will help you stand out from other candidates.

PROFESSIONAL ORIENTATION

  • Learn how to sell your international education. Employers often take less than 20 seconds to review job applications and learn how to prove yourself.
  • Find out if you have the skills and training to excel in a technologically advanced workplace. How can you demonstrate those skills in a profitable way?
  • Volunteering is a great way to make connections in the community, expand your professional network, and gain access to free training and development opportunities.
  • Networking, in general, is a surefire way to promote your skills, build confidence, and increase your resources.

GENERAL IMMIGRATION TIPS

  • Pay attention to the latest immigration news in North America, because immigration laws and policies can change quickly.
  • Check your social networks before applying for a visa in the United States. Remember that immigration authorities now require visa applicants to report up to five years of activity on social media.
  • Make sure you understand the entire process related to obtaining, maintaining, or extending your visa.
  • Learn to cope with a big change like moving to a new country. You should also know that you are not alone in this situation.
  • One way to enjoy your experience more is to make sure you are socially active and participate in extracurricular activities.
