I’ve started researching new Canadian PRs’ job seeking experiences and a lot of them don’t seem to be a smooth process. I do appreciate learning about other people’s experiences, so I don’t set my expectations too high.
However, I’m not sure if their job seeking experiences would apply to me as not a lot of them obtained their degrees or had work experience in the U.S., for instance.
My question is: I obtained both of my BS and MA from the US, and I’m currently working as a Data Scientist with academic studies in Statistics (took a few courses in CS as well, but I wouldn’t say I could transition into a Software Engineer easily). How much do Canadians value US degrees and work experience? Would I be biased against Canadian candidates when it comes to job looking as I don’t have Canadian degrees or work experience?
