Hey guys I hope all of you are doing well and having a good time or and today I am here to share my job search story in CANADA Because I really want to share a lot of things including When my job hunt started and to the point when I actually got the job So as soon as I came to know that we people are being laid off – as I shared with you people that I luckily got some time there was a buffer time where organisation made us aware that they are not gonna renew your contracts so in that period I immediately started applying for job I started getting in touch with people using Facebook groups like Indians in Toronto and I was able to get one or two references as well One of those referred me to a job and I got a interview call.

 

I gave interview but I didn’t get selected because they were looking to hire a contractor employee and may be I asked a question that Can I apply for some other position when I am inside the company so they got an impression that You know, I am just joining the bank because I want to get into something else (some other position) So sometimes you have to be very much aware of what you are asking in that interview because if you ask questions in the interview then also you have to be very careful and if you don’t ask any questions in the interview then also it is counted as a negative aspect Okay after that I gave one more interview that was a Big 4 Organisation, and there the major Hurdle was that the person who interviewed me. She told me that you don’t have enough Canadian experience I agree with you people. you guys might be thinking that you will only get Canadian experience once you start working here in Canada right? But here are some companies/Organisation who are very particular about this that you should have at least One year of Canadian experience and then only they will give you opportunity and after that again I gave one more interview in another Big 4 and there the female who interviewed me was nice, but maybe the job requirements were like Not up to what I was expecting or what they were expecting out of me then that interview also Didn’t go well then one evening me and Gundeep were at Sugar Beach, Toronto and that day I had one interview which didn’t go well and I was very depressed I was like am I doing something wrong? And if I am doing something wrong? Where? and why? Gundeep you know motivated me and he supported me throughout He said maybe you deserve something well or something better than this, so don’t loose hope and keep on going rest I was getting EI as well, so we were not that much worried but there was a point that I was tired of giving interviews event there is one more bank called big five bank and I gave that interview as well Imagine it after that much years of experience Those people didn’t select me because maybe I was you know Overqualified for the that job may this was a constraint for some positions I applied.

 

So if you are overqualified then also you may get rejected, because employer thinks that you will do job for sometime You will have a buffer period you look for something else and you will move on so they are Very picky in all these things which makes sense. I’ll say that was a miracle and I do believe in miracles So miracle was that I got a call from a provincial government organization and and I have no idea when I applied to that job. I got a call from HR and he told me that okay Your application has been selected and we are going to interview You on so and so day so you just send an email Which day you want to get interviewed on they sent me time slots this and dates I just replied to the email and after that my interview got scheduled.

And the first round was HR round they asked very basic stuff and there were quite tricky questions as well so I would like to share one of the question which was very basic The HR asked me that how much salary do you expect? So I told him that the salary here that should be as per the industry standards, but he was not satisfied He said I want a number So I told him honestly that I was a contractor in my first job in Canada So, I don’t know much about how the full-time job works so I said that I have seen on Glassdoor the salary range for My profile is this to this and then he was like impressed He just said, okay So I added one more thing that I’m not looking to get hired to become rich I am looking for a job in order to learn and grow within the organization and that person was pretty impressed with me after two days, I got an email that you have been qualified for the second round and Then I had an interview with the senior manager and the manager and then the interview was one hour long and the senior managers, came to see me off outside the office after interview and I knew that I have nailed the interview There was one more round of interview.

 

Struggle was not yet over because the Director of company had to interview me so after two days I got an email which said that you have been moved to the third round which will be with the director and finally I first, you know I was very very desperate if you will say or I was very very nervous as well because I really Wanted that job. It was not because it was a government job. I was just fed up of giving interviews and also I wanted to come out of that cycle where you have to face same questions again and again, And I was really tired of doing that so finally the interview with Director So that was a very casual interview He told me about his organisation, the best thing which I faced was he asked me What do you watch on TV? And I told him that I watched SUITS and Coincidentally, it was his favorite show and the character from the show was his favorite as well you know, there was a tuning and we just kept on chit-chatting that went for half an hour and finally that interview went Amazing and I had a vibe that okay.

 

I’m gonna get it Yes, so they made me wait a little bit longer. It was a week since I heard from them So it happens that when you don’t get to hear from HR for a week Then it’s better to drop an email to them in order to know what’s going on whether you have been selected or you have not been selected. So this what I did. And when I mailed HR and there was no reply on that day so I was like, oh man, this is this is gone. Now I might have to give more interviews!! But next day, I got an email from their HR saying that they have not reached to any decision So as soon as they do it, I will receive an email and I think that was the very next day I got a call from the senior manager personally saying that you have been selected for the post of senior compliance specialist and The salary is blah blah, and I was like wow means I got interviewed For the position of analyst but they were so pretty impressed with me that they selected me for The senior post.

 

Yes guys. Here it happens like this as well If you are capable enough and if they like you . So definitely they will offer you a different/better position and This is not a miracle This all depends on you and your experience. So that was the best day of my life after two months I will say like there are other best days as well there some other best days as well like when I landed here in Canada But this was like after two months and I was pretty happy about it. But okay, I Didn’t expect this much salary. I didn’t expect this position, but it came to me so the moral of the story is you are not supposed to lose hope and you need to stay positive and Finally the thing which you deserve will come to you on its own so guys this is it from my side. This was my story. and I am still excited to work there because there are lot of things to learn because this is a totally different industry and I Hope you could get opportunities like these as well Canada is a beautiful country and it has beautiful people and beautiful Organizations which are very professional and.

 

You will tend to learn a lot of things so be excited stay positive and I will see you in the next video so if you have any questions or queries or concerns, you can leave it in the comment box and I hope you enjoy the video. Please like share and subscribe Bye. Bye.

When you imagine the “job of the future?” what comes to mind? Probably something like this. Or maybe this. These are the jobs expected to grow the most over the next decade. And if you look at expected growth and the annual salary there’s a clear winner … nursing. Other jobs might pay more but future demand is a fraction
of what it is for nurses. Thanks to an aging population, in the US
and around the world. Despite the good pay and the high demand, there's one group that has stayed away from nursing: Men. Nursing is still one of the most gender-segregated jobs in the country with one man for every nine women in the field. So, what’s going on here? Why aren’t more men taking these well-paying,
in-demand jobs? With staff shortages plaguing many … … on our way to a nursing crisis … … in hospitals all over … … international shortage. In response to the worldwide nursing shortage scientists have enlisted the help of robots. These machines can lift and move patients take vital signs deliver medication and even make scheduling and assignment decisions.

Nao robot: I recommend placing a new patient
in triage bed T5 but contrary to the doomsday headlines there's little chance these machines will replace human nurses anytime soon. In 2013, researchers at Oxford University developed this scale. It measures how vulnerable certain jobs are to automation. The jobs where humans are least likely to be replaced by robots require either creativity,
expert perception and manipulation, or high degrees of social intelligence.

Predictions are much worse for jobs where these skills are less important. Of the 700+ jobs in the Oxford study, nursing was one of the least vulnerable. With a less than 1% chance of becoming automated in the
next decade or two. And when you watch nurses in action, it's easy to see why. The ability to build trust … to connect … it's what makes nursing immune from automation. And for decades, it’s also what’s kept
men out of the profession. Bill Lecher: Every time that there's a joke about a man that's a nurse … "Remember, we talked about him?" (laughter) "So, nurse not a doctor huh?" "Kinda girly, isn’t it?”
(laughter) It still cuts a small little cut. It still hurts a little bit. You always feel it. Scheltens: This idea, that nursing is a “woman's job” it can be traced back to the 1850s. To an English nurse named Florence Nightingale.

She cared for sick and injured soldiers during
the Crimean War. When she arrived at the hospital Nightingale was disgusted by the squalid conditions. Though she faced resistance from the male physicians, she imposed strict sanitation and dietary guidelines. And under her watch, fewer patients died of
preventable diseases. After the war, her methods were taught in new nursing schools that opened up
all over the world. At the same time that women were being told
their place was in the home nursing gave them the chance to develop an
identity outside of it. But Nightingale was no feminist. She saw nursing as a natural extension of
what it meant to be a woman. According to Nightingale, women had a
natural capacity for caring. Men did not. They couldn’t attend Nightingale’s nursing
schools, which blocked them from the profession. But the thing is, before Nightingale’s reforms men had a long history as nurses.

Monks cared for the poor and sick across Europe for centuries starting in the Middle Ages. Men served as nurses during the American Civil War. This includes the poet Walt Whitman who described the experience in his poem
"The Wound Dresser." (male voice reading) Fifty years after Whitman wrote this poem the Army Nurse Corps was made up entirely of women. By the time men were legally allowed to rejoin the profession in the 1950s nursing had become synonymous with femininity. A link that was reinforced through advertising, mass media, and popular culture. And which in turn affected how we raised our children. They absorbed the idea that men and women were born with certain personality traits which made them better-suited to certain jobs. And while these traits were thought to be innate we now know that they’re largely a
product of our environment.

Marci Cottingham: Boys and girls are socialized
differently, especially when it comes to emotions. And the emotions that they're allowed to express. Boys who are even in the infant age who cry are more likely to be shushed or told not to cry. Scheltens: Mothers are more likely to smile at their
infant daughters than their sons … and they use fewer emotion words around preschool
aged boys than girls. Cottingham: Boys are socialized to
stoically manage those emotions so as not to appear effeminate or de-masculinized. The biggest threat you can pose
to a boy in terms of masculinity is to call him a girl, or call him a pussy or a wuss, right? Scheltens: So a job that requires making an emotional connection, that requires expressing empathy – a job like nursing – there’s this assumption that men can’t do it because they lack these inborn “feminine” traits. Lecher: As a parent I was always pretty
involved with my children so when her teacher introduced me as, “This is Mr.

Lecher, this
is Katie’s dad, and he’s a nurse and works at Children’s Hospital here in Cincinnati. And I was surprised by the response. Young children, five years old, said,
“Well you can’t be a nurse. because you're not Katie’s mom.” What kind of messages do you remember getting as a kid about nursing? And who becomes a nurse? Chunn: Like the little white hats? And the skirt I think that as a child you'd always have this kind of like feeling that nurses were nurturing and people don't think men can be that way. You just have to tackle some of those preconceptions like "He's a man so he can't be gentle." or "he can't be nurturing." Josiah Shoon: I feel like it’s the
twenty-first effing century, How is this conversation still happening? Tim Malinowski: “Oh you must be my doctor."
And they start asking me questions. Sammy Davis LPN: "Why didn't you become a doctor or anything?" Jason Rozinka: "Did you fail med school, is that why you're a nurse?" Scheltens: It's not just nursing.

Genetic counselors, physical therapists,
and physician assistants also have large gender imbalances despite their higher than average salaries and major projected demand. Meanwhile, the economy is shedding the kinds of jobs that have stereotypically been associated with men, like manufacturing. And that's reflected in this statistic: The labor force participation rate: that's the share of men in the US who are either working or looking for work. And it's been falling pretty steadily since 1954. Our long-held beliefs about gender are clashing with a new economic reality, one in which emotional intelligence is vital. In recent years, there's been a bunch of ad campaigns aimed at bringing more men into nursing.

When sociologist Marci Cottingham
looked at these ads, she noticed that a lot of them relied on the same gender stereotypes that kept men out of nursing. Cottingham: Extreme stoicism, masking emotion, emphasis on athleticism. Looking rather stern. Looking past the camera so they're not
making direct eye contact Tattoos, motorcycles, don't really
have a lot to do with what's required of you as a nurse. If we use these stereotypical
images we might attract the wrong type of men into nursing. This idea that, "I can still be a macho tough guy, I don't need to deal with all that nurturing
empathy stuff." And so I think there's really a question here of who's going to change? Is it going to be the nursing profession,
to try to attract more men, or should we expect men to change? Guy Beck: I think it takes a while to solve that identity crisis.

How can I be a man, a nurse, and still maintain my manliness? But now I sort of have this view that caring is probably the most masculine thing a guy can do. Scheltens: Caring, empathy,
and trust are humans' strategic advantages over robots. And those skills don't belong to one gender. They're like a muscle. The more we build that muscle, The better prepared we’ll be for
whatever the future holds..
