We identified specific and crucial needs of the French-speaking community. What could newcomers do to understand and overcome the cultural gap to find a qualified job in Vancouver? From this point, thanks to motivated volunteers, we guided and helped French newcomers and professionals to understand the Canadian culture better, adapt their job search and excel in the Canadian work environment.
We believe that cultural diversity is an asset in business. As immigrants from Europe, we share similar education and professional rules and standards. Our goal is to continue building the awareness on the multicultural asset in the work environment.
We intend on supporting newcomers by helping them improve their job search techniques. Newcomers often need a local endorsement to make the difference for a BC company. We also provide a great environment to keep on growing and striving in a Canadian context.
We are always available to help our community. We build free resources and answer your questions through this website and social media.
We organize CONNECTWorking, Face-to-Face, as well as other events to share advice and guide you during your integration.
We strongly believe that our experience and our knowledge of the West Canadian market will make a difference to our community. Along the year, we develop more resources and projects to serve our community in a broader and better way.
We truly think that cultural diversity is an asset in the business world. As immigrants from France we share certain standards in education and professional conduct. We decided to come together to highlight French professionals appealing features for BC companies wishing to hire.
A French talent is different from a Canadian one, because the school systems are very different and they don’t receive the same education. This cultural diversity enables access to various work approaches that become a valuable asset for an international company when they are combined. As a consequence of their education and roots, French talents often have a refreshing hands-on and pragmatic approach, they are usually deductive thinkers with a strong analytical mindset.
In business, French people often appear extremely direct because they are not afraid to ask probing questions, keeping the best interest of their company in mind. A job description in France is often very wide and constantly evolving, which teaches them to become multitaskers and work efficiently in a cross-functional team. They are very flexible and used to add new tasks to their job if required.
Clear objectives, ambitious goals within tights deadlines are part of French people working habits. Their top management’s expectations are usually very high and French workers are compelled to deliver convincing results to their company. As they are lucky enough to have plenty of holidays, they manage to be effective within short work periods! By the way, France’s productivity is known to be top notch.
As a conclusion, French newcomers are essential for your business. Highly skilled and willing to fit in the Canadian standards, they will bring different expertise and approach to support your growth.
