BUILD A PROFESSIONAL NETWORK

IN CANADA

in 30 days

Beat Canadian experience and get more referrals to job interviews

Even if you're starting from scratch, even if you don't have Canadian experience, without feeling rejected or awkward connecting with total strangers

If you are (or soon to be) a newcomer to Canada, looking to get that perfect job while building a professional network you can trust, then you already know you have to be connecting with the right people on LinkedIn

So let’s cut to the chase.

You already know that networking is the most important (yet awkward) activity you must do in your job search. Because it’s not about what you know. It’s about who you know.

And you also know that a vast majority of the job market is hidden, being filled through referrals and inside contacts.

The question is, as a newcomer to Canada with a limited network, how do you get on the inside?

HERE IS WHAT

YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW

Even though you are aware that having a strong professional network can open a lot of doors for you in Canada, there are some additional ways you can leverage a trusted network

YOU CAN EASILY BEAT CANADIAN EXPERIENCE

Canadian experience is a serious problem that newcomers face in Canada. But it can be beat. You see the reality is the hiring manager does not trust that you are aware of Canadian work culture during the short time they spend with you at the interview. But with the right networking strategy, you can eliminate this perception before the interview and gain the manager's trust.

YOU GET TO CHOOSE THE COMPANY YOU WANT TO WORK IN

You've come to Canada for a better career. You must have had your eye on some amazing companies out here. Imagine working for a company that you target. Whether it's a large enterprise, a start-up or a non-profit, the right networking strategy helps you get noticed by the hiring managers at these companies.

YOU BEAT YOUR LOCAL COMPETITION TO MORE JOB INTERVIEWS

Most people don't treat their network the way they should. They use them only when they need something. And as you probably already know, people hate feeling used. This means that even though you're new to Canada, and building a network from scratch, you have a golden opportunity to treat your network with respect and win their attention.

Even though you know that building a strong network is a key strategy for your job search, convincing strangers to connect with you and give you job referrals is a delicate, but achievable, process

Your network is silent...

You send out multiple connection requests on LinkedIn, but they either reject your request, or accept and remain silent.

You reach out to recruiters and they either ignore you or brush you off.

And you're wondering to yourself "I'm on LinkedIn - why aren't the interview calls coming in even though I say I'm available?"

And then you start going to events and shaking hands awkwardly with strangers, trying to force small talk.

At these events, you're feel so out of your comfort zone, you just want it to end. You tell yourself "I'm networking", but it feels like a complete waste of time.

Why most newcomers can't build their network fast enough

Newcomers are unaware of Canadian culture of how to approach and connect with strangers.

Canadians don't give you trust by default. It must be earned. This means even if you ask them as politely as possible "If you hear anything let me know", they're just going to ignore you.

Then there is the discomfort as well. It's awkward asking strangers for help. "Why would they help me?" is what you keep telling yourself.

But Canadians, even though less trusting, are also a helpful culture - IF you take the right approach and are professionally consistent

The right approach

Networking is not only the fastest way to end your job search, it's also the best way to get the job that's right for you.

Luckily for you, many job seekers (newcomers and citizens) get it wrong.

This means if you have a system and a framework that shows you how to take the right approach to your network, and consistently deliver value to them you will get face time with them.

And once you are in direct conversation with them, you can convert those informational interviews to job interviews.

THE THREE REASONS

NEWCOMERS STRUGGLE TO BUILD A NETWORK

(and how you can easily grow your contacts)

REASON #1

THE WRONG APPROACH

Growing your network starts with an introduction to a stranger. It's an awkward moment for anyone.

And unfortunately, most people take the easy way out - sending blank LinkedIn requests. Or even worse, asking for favours up front without even knowing it.

Unfortunately, they are even aware they are doing it. But the results of such approaches is silence from the other end. The contact doesn't respond, or replies with a brush off - "apply for the job online".

But with a more personalized approach during the connection, where the reader feels you want to be of value to them - this changes everything for you!

REASON #2

MAKING THE WRONG CONNECTIONS

Understandably, when you're looking for a new job, the first set of people you'd want to connect with are recruiters. After all, headhunters jobs are to fill positions.

While recruiters are an important part of the hiring process, they should not be the only source of growing your network.

You need to be connecting with the only decision makers of your next job - hiring managers. Senior Managers, Directors, VPs, CEOs. These are the right connections you need to be making.

Reaching out to such high-level executives doesn't have to be intimidating. As long as you know the right things that grab their attention, you are well on your way to getting some serious referrals for your next job.

REASON #3

LACK OF CONSISTENCY

Growing anything requires you to show up and habitually commit to actions to nuture that growth. Growing a network is no different.

Most newcomers reach out to someone, make a connection, exchange a message or two and then disappear if that connection is not able to immediately help them.

That is a huge mistake.

Because while that contact may not have any openings at that moment, there is a good chance they will at least hear of an opening elsewhere in the near future.

You need a step-by-step action plan that keeps you on your network's radar. Remember, out-of-sight-out-of-mind. Consistency is key in order to get your network to know,like and trust you with referrals.

In Summary...

HERE'S HOW NETWORKING IN CANADA REALLY WORKS

It’s never been an easier time to connect with Canadians online. But i’s never been a more challenging time to get their attention.

Sure you can send out LinkedIn requests and “let-me-know-if-you-hear-anything” messages. I can pretty much guarantee you, this approach will not work.

As a job seeker in Canada your ultimate goal is to build a core network. A group of individuals who have the power and authority to hire you. People who, when an opening comes up, will think of you, even though you’re not around.

And as long as you avoid the biggest mistakes most job seekers in Canada make, you can quickly build this core network of individuals that will help you get the job of your dreams in Canada.

With the right strategy, they will overlook Canadian experience, qualifications, career gaps, and any other shortcomings you may have.

This network that will gladly accept your requests to meet for coffee, give you rock-solid industry advice, and trust you with referrals to job openings. This is what leads to your dream job in Canada.

And the key to building this level of trust with a network starts with a digital course that gives you the knowledge and skills to network effectively in Canada. And most importantly, a step-by-step action plan to build that core network.

INTRODUCING

An online on-demand video course designed to build your Canadian network, get more job referrals and get your dream job in Canada.

As a newcomer to Canada, I understand first hand what it’s like to arrive in a brand new country and not know anybody.

But that didn’t stop me from pursuing the life of my dreams in Canada. I was determined to build a network before I landed and apply a job search strategy that would get me into the top companies in Canada.

And in just three weeks, I secured three job offers with a networking strategy that kept me in constant contact with hiring executives, and a job application strategy that was also used to expand my network.

HERE IS HOW IT ALL

BREAKS DOWN

MODULE #1

DISCOVERING YOUR NETWORK

Building a network is like like building a marketing plan. And like all marketing plans, the first step is to discover who and where your market is. 

Here, you will establish the foundation of your network. You will first identify and catalogue the people who can influence and/or have the power and authority to hire you.

Even if you don’t know a single person in Canada, this module will break down how to take a step-by-step approach to your network research, and find the exact people you need in your corner to meet your career goals.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Critical mistakes most newcomers make when networking in Canada and how you can avoid these mistakes yourselves.

  • Common myths and misconceptions about networking that we eliminate in order to get started with the right mindset.

  • Multiple sources to discover your network and pros and cons of each source. You can use these sources to start building relationships online as well while you are still in your home country.

  • How to find the best recruiters to be a part of your network

MODULE #2

LINKEDIN FOR THE PRO NETWORKER

Once you’ve discovered who your ideal network is, it’s time to build those relationships. As we mentioned earlier, your networking goal is to have your network trust you with referrals.

And this can only happen if you consistently engage with them online. You will not be badgering them. On the contrary, with the engagement plan I’ve laid out for you, your network will actually be looking forward to your messages.

This plan of action can start anytime, even if you are several months ahead of arriving in Canada. Once you are well into the program, you would have built everlasting relationships online, and these contacts will be dying to meet you in person once you land.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Multiple LinkedIn options and features to establish your brand and build your network. LinkedIn will certainly be your social media platform of choice when you’re aware of its full potential.

  • A day-by-day action plan that will help you remain consistent and stay the course. Every message, every post, every notable engagement with your network builds your trust with them, one interaction at a time. 

MODULE #3

ACING THE INFORMATIONAL INTERVIEW

Ultimately, it comes down to this. An in-person meeting with your contact. Online interactions can only take you so far. The final step to push the trust factor to the top is a face-to-face discussion. However, many job seekers don’t capitalize on this meeting.

Here, you will discover how to ensure this meeting ends up with you either getting referred to a real job interview, or another network contact. The only way this happens is if your contact is impressed enough to take the meeting to the next level.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The most common mistakes job seekers make at informational interview meetings, and how you can avoid making them yourself.

  • How to make the meeting request with your contact, even if you’re nervous about making the ask. You will get access to a tried and tested template that will make your contact gladly agree to meet with you.

  • How to prepare an agenda for an informational interview meeting, in a way that keeps the meeting short, yet enough to impress your contact.

  • How to structure the meeting so that you remain in control while allowing your contact to mentor you during the conversation.

MODULE #4

BUILDING AN ALL-STAR LINKEDIN PROFILE

This bonus section ensures your LinkedIn profile speaks to your personality and career success. After all, you will be making a ton of LinkedIn requests to expand your network.

The people you connect with will definitely be checking your profile. This module will give you the confidence that they will be impressed with what they see, and will gladly accept your connection request.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • A step-by-step breakdown of each section of your profile, and how to upgrade the content in each section
  • How to explain your career story. Not just a summary of your resumé, but your specific accomplishments that will excite your contact.
  • Special tools that will allow you to create a profile that is both visually appealing and keyword rich. This will grab the attention of both hiring managers and recruiters.

WHAT OTHER NEWCOMERS ARE SAYING...

QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE...

If you don’t live in Canada right now, and you’re reading this, you’re in one of these situations:

  1. You have received your PR/ITA and are going to move to Canada permanently soon. This is the perfect opportunity for you to start building your network to line up job interviews before you land. Most of the jobs available are hidden, and your network will be the ones to expose them to you.

  2. You’ve applied to immigration and waiting for your results, or yet to apply. If it’s the express entry pool or the AIPP program, you may discover that you need a job offer to complete the process. There are tens of thousands of others applying for the same job as you. You want to stand out? You need to connect with the hiring managers directly and build your trust and network. Network Builders Society gives you the strategies that others don’t use.

It’s not just about firing up LinkedIn and shooting requests and likes and follows to you network.

There are specific ways you need to add value to your network.

There are specific strategies and words you can use that comply with Canadian culture, while impressing them.

This program gives you the exact step-by-step networking strategy, and messaging templates to make the process simple and straightforward.

So that you never have to worry about your network rejecting you every again.

You don’t have to be outspoken or bold to do these things.

A large portion of the strategy occurs online. So that when the time comes to meet face-to-face at an event, you have a specific strategy that even the most introverted person can follow through.

While free settlement services facilitate networking events for free, what they fail to do is educate people on how to take advantage of them.

It’s not just about hi-and-bye meet ups. You need a process to follow for every new contact you meet.

Network Builders Society gives you that step-by-step process to follow so that every contact becomes someone who you can build trust with and can eventually provide you with a job interview, or refer you to another job opening.

 

Because settlement services only facilitate mentoring and networking events. They don’t actually cover how to convince your contact or mentor to refer you to a job opening.

Which is your ultimate goal isn’t it?

Telling your contact “Let me know if anything comes up” is not going to get your results.

You have to follow a consistent plan and step-by-step process to build trust with your contact before you can make such a request.

Network Builder’s Society is the one program for newcomers that shows you how to do this, without feeling awkward when making the ask.

By the time you are done with the program, your network will be glad you asked for help.

You are aware of the fact that most of the job market is hidden

It is said that upwards of 70-80% of the job market is hidden. This doesn't mean the job is not advertised.
