Canada Job Requirements for Nigerians
You must be eligible to work in Canada.
This means that you need a valid Canadian work permit, study permit, or any other type of visa that allows you to take up employment or study on campus in Canada.
You should have a job offer from an employer with whom you can legally work as soon as possible after your arrival in Canada.
This is important because it shows them you will pay for your salary and cover all expenses associated with hiring someone new to their company (such as travel costs).
Your employer should also provide proof that they have hired another employee from Nigeria before this means providing documents such as transcripts from secondary school graduation ceremonies, copies of diplomas, photographs or videos showing parents posing with their children.
2. Work Experience
Employment opportunities in Canada can be found through many sources, including job boards, colleges, and recruiters.
Whatever your experience level may be, it is essential that you prepare yourself for an interview by taking courses in English language proficiency, as well as interpersonal skills.
If you have work experience in Nigeria or another country but want to work in Canada (or anywhere else), this will help make sure that youre ready for the expectations of employers when interviewing them about their hiring needs.
If there was no formal education involved during your employment or if all aspects of your employment were non-related fields such as manual labor or farming, then this might put off potential employers who may not understand what kind of background one needs before wanting him/her to come into their company.
3. Degree Attestation
A degree attestation is a document that proves that you have completed your studies at a university or college in Nigeria.
Its not the same as a degree of equivalency, which can only apply to programs that are accredited by an external agency.
The purpose of getting a degree attestation is to show employers that you have earned your qualification from an accredited institution and meet all requirements for employment in Canada.
The process varies depending on what type of program it was.
If it was an undergraduate diploma program (like nursing), then you must submit documents showing proof that you have successfully completed 80% or more of your courses before being able to apply.
If it was an honours bachelors degree program (like engineering), then again, only 60% needs to be completed before submitting applications; while if it was postgraduate studies like law, medicine, social sciences, 100% needs to be completed successfully before applying.
