How to counter the no Canadian experience narrative

March 20, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Newcomers get frustrated when they are hit with the claim that they lack Canadian work experience. They are puzzled that the same qualification that allowed them to land in Canada is no longer relevant
once they arrive.

This webinar will help them understand what lies behind the notion of No Canadian Experience and how
to counter this narrative. It will also offer insights on how to leverage their international experience, engage in conversations, build credibility, gain visibility and attract the attention of employers, hiring managers and recruiters. It will also help them develop a strong elevator speech to introduce themselves to potential employers.

At the end of the webinar, participants will have learned:

    • How to reframe the conversation around competencies, capabilities and potential instead of
      focusing on their lack of Canadian experience
    • How to develop a strong storytelling elevator speech
    • Strategies to maximize their international experience

Come prepared for a very interactive and engaging session.

Speaker: Daisy Wright, Author, “No Canadian Experience, Eh?” and Career Coach
