Don’t sit at home and apply for jobs online. Go out, network and meet people. Join Access and just follow what they teach you. It can take time to get your first job. I got mine after three and a half months. Don’t lose hope and never doubt your abilities. Stay positive.
I would suggest newcomers learn about bridging programs provided by Employment Services providers like ACCES, sooner the better. I took over 2 months to learn about ACCES after landing. I wish I knew about ACCES much before.
