Hi!



I'm a Canadian citizen, but I did my BBA and MBA from Pakistan. I know it's hard, if not impossible, for immigrants (non citizens) to get a job in a country like Canada with their foreign degrees, but do you think It'll be easy for me to get a job with my Pakistani degree since I have Canadian nationality.



I'll be waiting for a response. Thank you

if you are in Canada, and have work experience there, it should be pretty easy to get a job. Being there seems to be the major obstacle.

I don't have work experience there, that's the problem. Plus, I have a Pakistani MBA degree.

Your degree won't be taken very seriously there. LUMS is the only internationally accredited school in pakistan so the average Pakistani MBA will be at best considered to be the equivalent of an undergraduate degree from a four-year program in North America. However there is a labour shortage in Canada and there is a good chance that you would be able to obtain a non-managerial role in the country. Your choices are 

- either to obtain a Canadian qualification in the professional area that you would like to establish yourself in through a full-time programme or

- or to take a non-managerial role in Canada and then use part-time study to move yourself towards your professional goal. 



PS The Canadian government has some good resources aimed at non-citizens migrating to Canada with tell them how many points they get for focusing on particular market sectors or having particular skills. I think that is a useful guide for anybody trying to find areas in the Canadian economy where particular skills will allow them to move rapidly into employment.
