Subject: Re: Share my experience with new immigrants

Hi, There:

After I read freeman's email, I think most of what he said are right, but Ihave one thing to mention:Don't cheat the company!

Recently my company has a job opening:Progarmer Analyst.We got a lotresumes, maybe 400,and a lot of them came from Chinese, the ineresting thingis: 7 of the Chinese all work for Diginet or Diginet 2000 company, 4 of themwork for QGI..., My manager just got confused, why so many Chinese work forthe same company and why they all look for job at teh same time?he asked meif I had any idea, the only thing I could say was maybe something wrong withthose companies. After I went to home and read the Chinese newapaper, Ifound out they are training schools. I really felt shame at that time, whywe Chinese cheated the company, why we just make up a story, put 5 or 10years exprience on the resumes but can do nothing, why some of us justdamage our Chinese reputation? The worst result will come up if we keepdoing that. For those who really has high skills, you don't need make up astory, some of my friend they can find a professional job even they don'tput any make-up Canadian exprience on the resumes. For those beginners, youshould seriouly think about Senaca, U of T, York...Remember, No pains, Nogains.

Honesty, that's the first personality we should have.

If I have chance, I want to help Chinese, not those cheats.

By the way, my company didn't give interview to those people(who worked forthe same company), they finally hired one lady who has no Canadianexperience.

A Chinese IT guy

You are absolutely right. I heard the same story from a company I know, theygot 5 Chinese applicants who worked for the same companies in both China andCanada in their resumes, actually their resumes are basically the sameexcept their names. They all got interviewed, one guy was hired, but wasfired the second day. This is too bad.

Thank Don Xiong and Cindy Zhuang who provided further opinionson my suggestion. I am sorry that my last email did misleead alittle bit about cheating the employers. What I meant is thatif you are sure you can handle the job but just lack goodreference, cheating a little bit that way is acceptable.But Don Xiong and Cindy Zhuang are absolutely right that wemust pay attention to building up and keeping good image ofChinese people all the time. This will benefit the wholeChinese community as well as yourself, and your CHILDREN!!!Suppose I finished a course and go to an interview,I would just told the interviewer that I had participateda co-op project in a training school and I am confident onmy java skill. I think this would be enough to get the jobprovided I did understand what was taught in the course.

Another thing I want to emphasize is English. New immigrantsmust study very very hard at oral English. It will definitelyhelp you in interviews.

Sorry again for the misleading in the last mail. I willcorrect it when I post it to UofT's list.
