quick question

to get my resume ready in earnest and I was wondering -- all of my jobs and education are all Canadian based so, I was thinking that at the bottom of my resume of putting, "Fully accredited to work within the USA."

What do you think of that? I just think that when they look at my Canadian-centric based resume they'd wonder and thus, just slip to the bottom of the pile?

Thanks all.

I'm in RI now, but I did put something at the bottom of my resume stating I'm fully legal to work in the USA. Can't recall the exact wording, but I would think that one should put something stating that ur legally able to work. They glance thru ur resume and say holy #######, another illegal CDN here,lol


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

I didn't put anything like that on my resume, but I don't think it's a bad idea. You never know who will pick it up, like your experience and education, but toss you aside because they are unsure of your status and ability to work in the US. Immigration status is something that seems to confuse even the most educated and successful people.

I'd say put it in your cover letter but sometimes I don't think employers even bother reading that...

Thanks guys! I know right, flames... another illigal Canadian! But i just figure with all the reasons to bypass someone, this would be a biggie. So in my C.V. I put a small addendum on the bottom saying that i am able to work in the US, no sponsorship required. Same with my cover letters. Then this way they're not, "oh damn, no idea what to do with this one, buh bye....

:)

Thanks again...

Good idea, I'm glad you brought this up! I'm also working on my resume. I never thought to add something like that, but you're right. Funny though, I had been wondering if I should put 'London, Ontario', or 'London, Canada', rather than just 'London, ON', in case they don't know what 'ON' means here. Is that bad? lol :innocent:
