Canadian Experience: A testimony

This column is to give hope to those who just came here or are planning to move here! Would you like to share your experience? Get in touch with us!

“I have moved to Canada over 3 years ago now. I had always wanted to discover this country, the great north, the wilderness and the opportunities. I was living in the UK for some time and after the Brexit result in 2016, I was not sure what to do. The future was very uncertain. So, I decided to start the process to move to Ontario. My first choice was to go to Ottawa, the rent looked cheap and I knew I could easily find a job. But there was something about the city that I didn’t find really attractive. I changed my mind and decided to go to Toronto. Bigger and more exciting, it definitely was the right decision and when I think about it now, I don’t regret it at all.

I started the process for a PR while I was living in the UK. I went through the whole point system that includescalculating my education, work experience, age and so on. After collecting all my information, I was put into a pool of applicants in May 2017. Within three weeks I was selected in the draw. The draw occurs randomly once, twice or more a month. They invite candidates over a certain amount of point to move to the next steps.Ithen provided with a criminal and health check to get my ITA (invitation to apply) and my demand was accepted in September.

When I talk to people here I realize how easy and quick the process was for me and I am very thankful. Never give up, when you are in the pool of applicants your turn will come, just be ready to provide the rest of the documentation.

I worked retail jobs while pursuing a degree at university, I then started working with Bloo Recruitment which has been a fantastic experience! You don’t need to have Canadian experience to apply and come here, all you need is a little faith and trust your skills. Toronto is a city where half of the people is born outside of the country, everyone is trying to make it! Getting a job with bloo can help you with making friends and network your way up! I am very proud to have come here and I recommend anyone looking to gain experience to contact bloo.”

Why Work is Important?

Why Work is Important?

Why is work important? A discussion beyond the monetary rewards of a job and the survival importance of it. A job is what you need.

Having a job brings you more than you know. Having a job is, for most people, a way to buy food, to have a decent home, pay for school, to simply have a life. For others, it is about ambition, self-esteem, and opportunities. You never know who you are going to meet. Working can be hard, it can be tiring, waking up early, going out in the cold for minimum wage inspires respect. At Bloo Recruitment, we treat our associates with respect and we believe in the talent that they bring to the table.

A temporary job is what it is, it doesn’t last forever. But the connections that you make, the network that you develop and the friendships that you create are priceless and can last forever. Standing next to someone, doing a hard job for a month, is a bonding experience. When you relocate to this great country, you may find yourself alone and somewhat sad, coming winter if you never had experienced the truth (yes the weather in Canada can be frightful) it can get hard! But remember, it doesn’t last forever! Now how do you meet people? Through work. A work buddy will become a buddy. Someone to lean on someone to share with. A job is what you need. The Maslow hierarchy of needs represents a pyramid with basic needs at the bottom like food, water, warmth and so on, having a job helps you with basic needs. Once those basic needs are satisfied, safety needs come along like having a shelter and an occupation. A job will help you. The most interesting feature of this theory is the next level, social belonging, according to Maslow, humans possess an affective need for a sense of belonging and acceptance among social groups. Many people become susceptible to loneliness, social anxiety, and clinical depression in the absence of this love or belonging element. This is the main reason why you should get a job with us! Let us help you to achieve those needs. Climb the mountain with Bloo!

At Bloo recruitment, we have placed over 6000 people last year, helping people build their network, changing lives. We are very proud to be part of the communities in the country that help newcomers, we are very proud to help students make money during the holidays, make friends.

Have that conversation with our recruiters, their job is to get you a job, and a temp job can be perfect for you! Check out all those opportunities here! Your next adventure, your next best friend can be here too!
