Nothing is easy in life, be it a job in India or overseas!!

Finding a job abroad and living there can be more difficult than in your home country for various reasons, but that’s your choice!

So, I talk to quite a few young people under 30, not many, including those in their early 20s and late 20s. I’ve written a post in the past about work permit for Canada through IEC(International Experience Canada), especially for young Indian professionals! I don’t want to single out any generation, but honestly, when you’re young, you have to be more determined to achieve what you want in life! No shortcuts! No easy tasks! Nothing in life is easy.

Yes, I don’t speak to many young people on a daily basis, but I’ve counselled some of them and wrote a post about IEC . If you want a work permit without paying anyone, work towards it. Is that easy? Hell no!

I monitor the aiesec website daily and this is the latest job offer listed there. [Frontend Developer] I’ve also spoken to the  aiesec nammabengaluru and they’re very cooperative. They answered the call and even asked me to send the profile even though there was no job posting at that time!

This isn’t a paid service or a paid post. Why am I doing this? Just to raise awareness. It can’t hurt to try, and yes, I see that 588 applicants have already applied. But remember, you need to keep monitoring job listings, keep applying and keep pushing your profile. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

You can find more details on IEC process our website. If time permits, I’ll certainly continue to post job requirements on the AIESEC website as I see them.

If you’re under 30 and want a work permit for Canada, you can contact AIESEC. There are people who have successfully obtained work permits through this program, and you don’t have to invest anything for this visa. However, make sure you have excellent communication skills (not just language skills) to represent your profile if you’re shortlisted by the employer.
