What are the ways to immigrate to Canada without a job offer?
Hi Yinka,There are a few ways to migrate to Canada without a job offer:Education - if you can afford it, get a Canadian Education, preferably a Graduate (Masters) degree. You'll be given a 1–3 (usually 3) years Post Graduate Work Permit on graduation.Skilled Worker - You can look into Canadian Residency application. Canada is always looking for skilled workers. What skills do you have? Check for skills Canada is looking for to see if you're a good fit.Spousal sponsorship - If you meet a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident as a future partner, they'll sponsor you to migrate to Canada.To the poster, if you have been asked to find a job before immigrating to Canada. Search the Canadian job websites: Workopolis, Monster, Indeed, Jobrapido, etc. for jobs in your field. You have to understand that whoever will employ you has to provide an LMIA (Labour Market Assessment) to the Canadian government to prove that there's no other Canadian who can do that job.However, even though eligibility states you need to have a job offer, I'm sure you are approaching it wrong. If you start the application, you should be able to create a job profile & link to the job bank.What matters is that your skills are listed as one of the skills currently needed in Canada. You don't need to have a job to apply. Although if you have a job offer, it'll increase your points, give you a very high score & enable you to be selected from the pool quicker than others.
How could the federal government and state governments make it easier to fill out tax returns?
Individuals who don't own businesses spend tens of billions of dollars each year (in fees and time) filing taxes. Most of this is unnecessary. The government already has most of the information it asks us to provide. It knows what are wages are, how much interest we earn, and so on. It should provide the information it has on the right line of an electronic tax return it provides us or our accountant. Think about VISA. VISA doesn't send you a blank piece of paper each month, and ask you to list all your purchases, add them up and then penalize you if you get the wrong number. It sends you a statement with everything it knows on it. We are one of the only countries in the world that makes filing so hard. Many companies send you a tentative tax return, which you can adjust. Others have withholding at the source, so the average citizen doesn't file anything.California adopted a form of the above -- it was called ReadyReturn. 98%+ of those who tried it loved it. But the program was bitterly opposed by Intuit, makers of Turbo Tax. They went so far as to contribute $1 million to a PAC that made an independent expenditure for one candidate running for statewide office. The program was also opposed by Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist. The stated reason was that the government would cheat taxpayers. I believe the real reason is that they want tax filing to be painful, since they believe that acts as a constraint on government programs.
How many applications did it take to get a job offer for the US federal government?
One. One of the keys to this is to ensure that you are indeed qualified for the position you are seeking. Remember the objective of the application is to obtain an interview. Nothing more. So to make sure you make the cut, research the job, the skills, the agency, and the employees. Find the key words for the skills, the working environment, the agency mission, etc. including regulations and laws.Once you get the interview, that's where you can sell yourself and what you are capable of.

Is it possible to get Canada PR without paying an agent?
Yes, it is very possible to do so without an agent or lawyer. I know several people that did it. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has a remarkably good website with all the forms, checklists, documentary requirements and even self-help questionaires to determine eligibility.1. Stages - Generally, for skilled worker immigration programs you have to submit your profile and if you meet the basic criteria you will be issued an Invitation to apply. Note that the invitation to apply is effectively an approval in principle as in the application stage they will only assess the correctness of the information, as well as cinduct background checks.2. Determine eligibility - the program currently implemented is called "Express Entry". Go to cic.gc.ca and follow the links. It will have a step by step questionnaire to determine your score. It also has links to the various Provincial Nominee Programs around Canada that generally work in conjunction with the Express Entry system.3. Cost - I am a bit rusty on the detailed breakdown, the CIC website has the full details. Last I checked you can expect to pay about 500$ per person as a "right of permanent resident fee" as well as an additional similar amount for the application fee, and for any adult dependants.There are also mandatory physical exams and police clearances required for all persons in the application over 16. Expect 200-300 per person.Then there is also the language testing and document verification.4. Processing time - if you are selected in the express entry process and submit an electronic application, CIC promises to process your application within 6 months or less.5. Access to other markets - no... you get the right to make Canada your home and potentially qualify for citizenship in the future. No immigration benefits vis a vis any other countries are given.

Yet, worry not my friend, what doesn't bend to hardwork?SSC:SSC JE exam is conducted every year to fill the vacancies in some of the federal Government agencies viz. Central Public Works Department(CPWD). Be vigilant of SSC notifications so that you dont miss out any opportunity. Usually the applications are filled in October and the exams are conducted in the immediate January.GATE: With a valid GATE - EE Score, one can appear for recruitment process of most of the PSUs in India. You will start your career here as Executive Trainee/ Graduate Engineer Trainee/ Management Trainee and start moving to higher positions after probabtion. Pays and Perquisites differ from one PSU to another but needless to say one of the best career start in the concerned field.List of some PSUs that accepts GATE- EE Score:Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd.(PGCIL)Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd.(NPCIL)Bhaba Atomic Research Centre (BARC)Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO)National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd.(NTPC)Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC)National Hydro Power Corporation Ltd.(NHPC)Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd.

So, feel gifted if you are enrolled in any of these institutions :)PRIVATE COMPANIES:Private companies have their own method of recruiting. Few majors do pay as high as PSUs or in cases more than PSUs to attract fresh talents.List of Private Power/ Energy firms in India: ABB India LtdABB India LtdAdani PowerAshok LeylandAtkinsBGR EnergyBhushan SteelCrompton GreavesDNVGLEmerson PowerEssar EnergyFluor IndiaFortum India LtdGeneral Electric ( Includes Alstom Grid and Areva Grid)HavellsJindal Steel and PowerJSW EnergyKSK Energy VenturesL&T ( ECC, Power, Electric automation)Lanco InfratechLloyd's Register Energy ConsultingLuminous Power systemsOrient Electric( CK Birla group)Oriental Green PowerPhilipsPothigai PowerRattan India PowerReal Ispat & PowerReliance PowerRenew Power Ventures Pvt Ltd.Robert BoschRolls Royce Power SystemsSchneider electricSGSSIEMENSSterlite EnergySuzlon EnergyTata Consulting EngineersTata MotorsTata PowerTata Power linksTorrent PowerToshiba PowerWaree Energy Ltd.Wartsilá IndiaWelspun EnergyYokogawa India and many more.Pre-palcement (through Internship):Internships in private companies are the best opportunities one can get to show off their talents and skills to grab a job offer prior to pass out. Most of the majors release such offers.Campus Recruitment:In India, most of the companies choose Campus hiring to recruit freshers. However, needless to mention - popularity of your institute does play a role in attracting top MNCs visit.Referral Recruitment:Easiest way to ensure an interview call from an MNC or any other company for that matter is using your contacts. If you ever wondered as to why your dream company is not releasing job notifications with minimal experience requirements, chances are there that they fill spaces with referral Recruitment. Because employers do believe in referral than a complete stranger. This apparently saves employers time and money also. So, widen your circle and use your contacts well.But, as far as I know, this type of referral recruitment doesn't work in governmental institutions.Off Campus Recruitment:Most of the private companies conduct off campus recruitment/walk-ins also whenever vacancy arises.You can follow Glassdoor, Linked Jobs, Jobs - Recruitment - Job Search - Employment - Job Vacancies - Naukri.com, Monster Jobs - Job Search, Career Advice & Hiring Resources and many other available online Job portals to know when these firms keep their doors open.You are likely to receive calls from the companies or consultancies that recruit for the companies on maintaining good/updated profile(not necessarily premium profile) in the portals said.Note: Sometimes you may receive fake calls/ mails in the name of these portals from some frauds to loot your money. So be cautious of such spammers.Job fair:One can also attend job fairs whenever conducted, where one can get a chance to pursue core career from private companies. However hardly any majors participate in such Job fairs. One can always start their career in small firm and switch to majors with his/her Experience. To know when these Job fairs are conducted, periodical checking of Online portals might help.Good luck friend!
Now that the PMDB left the Federal Government, how many jobs can PT offer to not be impeached?
It doesn't matter. The jobs will be filled, but not by the "right" people.The appointments at Ministries and other commissioned jobs are a way to cement alliances with another parties (PMDB, for instance). Now that it's clear to everyone the boat is sinking, many are dropping out and leaving the appointed jobs. Sure, these jobs are now available, but very few people are willing to take them. And they are not the people you need. Probably PT will fill them with their own people, but this won't form new alliances,which is what they actually need. If you were a politician from any other party, would you accept the appointment to say, the Ministry of Economy? Why jump in a boat that is sinking? And, if Dilma is impeached (which is very likely) you will be removed from office anyway.So, PT is currently without "credit" in the political market to avoid the impeachment.
