Whether you’re Canadian-born or have just recently migrated, you must’ve realized that careers are always one step ahead. Just when you think you have all you need, a new problem pops up that requires a new skill. Getting the right accreditation specific to your career is very important.
But how do you know what accreditation you need in Canada?
The simple answer is Research! Find out what courses or training you need to complete. Canada’s job market is extremely vast, with people from all across the world. Some jobs will require that you get some certifications or write certain exams to be industry-compliant.
Thankfully, there is a body that can give you the information you need. To determine what credentials you’ll need to practice your profession in Canada, the Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials (CICIC) is the organisation to consult.
Why you need Accreditation
The credentials you acquired in your country may have given you the skills you need for the job, but it didn’t give you any knowledge of the Canadian employment industry. It may not even be acceptable for that position you’re applying to in accordance to the Canadian labour law.
Do not let an alien credential prevent you from getting your dream job. Even with all the experience and expertise, a piece of document can ruin your chances.
