It’s that time of the month again where we try to help out a fellow Brit earn an honest crust. Or better still, real money that can be exchanged for food, heat and rent.
So, welcome to Joshua. He’s not actually in Toronto yet, but will be soon so being the clever chap that he is, has started reaching out early. And we’re happy to help, possibly for some preemptive Timbits. But that would never happen. *sigh*
“So I am a Brit (soon to be) in Toronto, with my flight is booked for the November 25. I am a lucky International Experience Canada lottery winner, and will be able to work in Canada for two years! For the last few months, I’ve been researching all the cool things I will soon be able to explore/do, but the looking for a job bit is trickier.
“So you’re offering to help out fellow Brits in that area? Thank you so much! Any advice/help will be very appreciated. Can I offer you some preemptive Timbits in return? I’ve heard they’re good.
“Firstly I’ve got no idea what is a realistic Canadian salary expectation for myself (other than above minimum wage)? If I could get a job in British/ Political researching or reporting, I would be bleeming over the moon. I want to do a masters in international relations in a few years, so anything relevant to that would be awesome.
“But dream job aside, any 9-5 office job where I get the weekend off to enjoy Canada sounds pretty good too.”
So, there’s Joshua’s ideal wishlist. If you can help — or know someone who can — please contact him at CunninghamJ95 AT outlook DOT COM … and good luck to him.
