Where to Look for a Job

There are many ways to look for a job. Your first resource should be the Association for New Canadians (AXIS Career Services). They can provide you with the support and assistance needed to locate possible job openings.

You can also search for jobs on the Government of Canada’s Job Bank at https://www.jobbank.gc.ca/home-eng.do.

The Career section or classified ads in newspapers are also an important resource. You can also let people know that you are looking for a job. Friends, relatives, teachers, neighbours, or an ANC worker may know about a job opening.

Many businesses may simply use a “Help Wanted” sign in their window or post on an advertisement board at their location – this is most common for restaurants or convenience stores.

You can also check notice boards in your community for job advertisements or apply at the Personnel Department of hospitals, hotels, and large companies. Finally, you can phone or visit a business. Some companies have jobs, but may not advertise them. Use the Yellow Pages of the phone book to find where to go. For example, if you are a car mechanic, look under “Automobile Repairing and Service”
