    Un titular para complementar la informacion..

    Économie : Quality of life : Going places ? Big cities aren’t best

    A new report of most desirable cities to move to, Toronto and Montreal don’t make the cut. Instead, cities such as Calgary and St-John’s get top honours for superior cultural, economical and educational attributes The globe and mail


    <<Solo 7 de estas companias estan en la provincia de Quebec >>

    No estoy absolutamente interesado en participar en esos cansones y totalmente inútiles debates de Québec vs resto de Canadá pero esta afirmación necesita aclaratoria, sobretodo para los foristas que todavía no viven en Canadá y que están considerando establecerse en la provincia de Québec

    La ciudad que aparece al lado del nombre de las empresas es la ciudad donde está la sede corporativa de esas empresas, pero de ninguna manera quiere decir que solo 7 de esas empresas tienen presencia en la provincia de Québec o que no hay oportunidades de empleo en esas empresas en la provincia de Québec, por ejemplo AMEC, Bank of Montreal (pareciera evidente que esta empresa tiene presencia en Québec), Bayer, CHMC, Canada Post, CSIS, Capital One, Ceridian, CH2M HILL, Ellis Don, Loblaws, Siemens, Shell Canada, PCL Constructors, TD Bank, Telus, etc….todas estas empresas tienen operaciones y oficinas en Québec.

    Yo también cuestionaría cuáles fueron los criterios para elaborar la lista pues hay algunos ausentes sospechosos, por ejemplo Air Canada, Bell Canada, Bombardier, Exxon-Mobil, Pratt&Whitney……..


    No es por entrar en debates ni nada, pero estoy totalmente de acuerdo con el amigo verdi. De hecho:

    Telus Corporation Vancouver Telecommunications 25,961 Supports a variety of alternative work options, including flexible hours, reduced summer hours and a 35-hour work week, with full pay.

    Hay como 5 edificios (cuidado si no mas), que yo haya visto de TELUS en Toronto, así que esto afirma lo que dice el amigo verdi.

    Por cierto, verdi nombra mas empresas, yo también me pregunto cosas como UBISOFT ,EA , compañías reconocidas de desarrollo de juegos bien importantes.

    Al leer el primer mensaje lo que habla (a mi parecer), es de como es la vida una vez que esta DENTRO de la compañía, o sea, los beneficios, cantidad de empleados, ubicación, etc.

    Mas eso no significa que sean compañías que actualmente estén "reclutando gente" y que hayan grandes oportunidades de trabajo. De hecho, muchas de esas compañías que se nombran les puedo decir que han sacado gente estos últimos meses. Esto es algo que también se debe tomar en cuenta.

    Muchas compañías pequeñas también son buenas y buscan gente y esto ayuda a prepararse para luego quizás entrar en estas "grandes corporaciones".

    Considero que las oportunidades están en todos lados, solo es cuestión de estar en el lugar indicado y el momento preciso.



    Muy de acuerdo con los dos ultimos comentarios. Por otra parte aclaro que el titular que coloque (de la misma publicacion de las lista de empleadores) hace referencia a que la calidad de vida en las ciudades mas grandes ha desmejorado en compracion a ciudades menos populosas pero con infraestructuras y medio ambiente adecuados para acoger nuevos inmigrantes. Ciudades menos grandes son menos costosas y el mercado laboral es en muchos casos mas abiertos, claro esta que todo depende de su campo de experticia laboral y el idioma que mejor dominen. Y un ultimo detalle, la humildad donde vayan…


    Saludos a todos, alguien me podria explicar o indicar alguna pagina sobre la certificacion para la carrera de Administracion de Empresas en Toronto requerida para ejercer plenamente y por supuesto tener opcion en el campo laboral, de manera que pueda irme documentando desde aqui en cuanto a costos, tiempo aproximado, lugar, etc

    Gracias de antemano
