When I first came to Canada and started to look for a job there were at least three excuses I got to bounce at every interview: “Your French has too much accent”, “You don’t have a Security Clearance” and “You don’t have Canadian Experience”
The first one is obvious because I’m not French.
The second one was true and there’s nothing you can do about it.
But the third one is ridiculous. And what could you answer to that? “Of course I don’t have Canadian experience! I am a newcomer for God sake!”
This, also, has a solution. Today I’ll let you know how.
