Job Searching in Canada: Skills and Tips (加国求职技巧及要诀)

It is not an easy task for both local and international students to find an ideal job in Vancouver. Aside from English fluency, volunteer experience, and good networking, a tailored resume, cover letter, and professional interview skills are also essential to job hunting. In this article, we will discuss skills and tips relating to resumes & CVs.

Resume (履历表)

A resume is a document which portrays an individual’s experiences and strengths. It is usually two pages in length. A well-written resume can greatly increase the chance of an interview. Even if you have just graduated and lack work experience, do not be discouraged. To make a good resume to promote yourself, there are many places you may need to pay attention to. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Only mention work-related information and experience: do not add personal information such as photos, marital status, gender, height, or weight.
  • 只要列出跟申请工作有关的资料及经验: 不必加上个人资料如: 相片、婚姻状况、 男 、 女、身高或体重。

  • Let the employer know that you are the suitable candidate for the job: a simple statement of your career goals and expectations and list of relevant work experience (newly graduated students can list summer jobs, internships, or learning experience).
  • 让僱主很快知道你是合适人选: 简单陈述你的职业目标及期望,列出相关工作经验 (刚毕业学生可列出暑期工、实习或学内活动经验)

  • List not only what you did, but also your outstanding results.
  • 不要只列工作职务,还要列出工作上的优秀表现及可量化的成绩。

Cover Letter (求职信)

A cover letter introduces an individual’s job application. The purpose of a cover letter is to convince employers to accept the application and/or to schedule an interview with the job applicant. Not only is a well-written resume important to get you an interview, a good cover letter is equally important. The cover letter is a good opportunity to showcase your relevant qualifications and strengths. It can attract the employer to select you for an interview. Here are some tips for writing a cover letter:

  • Introduction: the preceding paragraph cover letter is best to write the recipient's name and title, the first paragraph of your letter should clearly set out your objectives.
  • 首段: 求职信上款最好能写上收信人的姓名及职衔,第一段要清楚列出你的来信目的。

  • Content:  Emphasize your work performance, talk about main points and avoid lengthy paragraphs (newly graduated students can talk about their internship or volunteer experience). Avoid repeating all of the information on your resume.
  • 内容: 简述你的工作表现,只列重点避免长篇大论 (刚毕业学生可列出实习或义工经验): 不要重複履历表上所有的资料。

  • Conclusion: Encourage your employer to contact you for an interview; repeat your contact information.
  • 尾段: 鼓励对方联络你,给你面试机会,并重複你的联络资料。
