EXCERPT

Everyone has to start somewhere. But just because you're starting at the beginning doesn't mean you have to start at the bottom–at least in terms of pay. Entry-level jobs are the initial role that you take in a particular industry that will hopefully be the first of many in your career. And some entry-level jobs pay better than others. >> Accounting and finance; Health care; IT (Information technology); Sales and marketing

Work to Consider

Manufacturing

Often, the term “manufacturing” conjures images of large factories where employees work on an assembly line to piece things together, such as fabricated metal products, machinery, and automobiles. Given the diversity of products and production methods, there are many different jobs within the manufacturing sector.

Hotel related

The hotel and special function sectors of the hospitality industry are currently doing well in major Canadian markets. Employers and government agencies are keen to hire newcomers in the areas of hotel management and administration, event planning, front-of-the-house, and maintenance and cleaning.

Hairstylist

An overview of hairstyling, including as a barber, in the Province of Ontario, with discussion of occupations in this sector; types of employers; expected compensation; English speaking requirement; compulsory licensing and requirements and process to become licensed; opportunity for newcomers with evidence of sufficient prior international experience to proceed directly to the qualifying exam; training programs available; and links to stories in the media.
