BlogCharm down again and other things

on Thursday, September 13, 2007

This is the FOURTH time in the less than a year that BlogCharm has been down and is getting on my nerves, big time. I know it has been awhile since I have posted anything there, and even longer here due to this blog being my "backup/just in case this sorta thing" happened. It will be kind of a pain, but may switch back.

The reason I haven't posted in awhile on either blog is that I have been busy lately, STILL looking for jobs in Canada for my husband. I have sent out I don't know how many resumes with not a lot of response back. My husband is a Computer Technician by trade, with 13 years experience, with both Windows and Mac OS.

If you guys would be interested in moving to British Columbia, I can tell you that it's probably the best of the Canadian provinces to move to. the weather in winter is WAY milder than the other provinces, and the lifestyle is far more laid back.

In terms of the job search, I don't know what the employment situation is like in your husbands line of work, but right now, there are plenty of jobs going in BC. To help, I found a BC specific job site which might help with your search some.

Good Luck, and a Happy New year to you.

Thanks for the info retardedrugrat! My husband would actually LOVE to move to British Columbia, near the mountains.

My husband is a computer technician by trade. The other job sites I've found, with positions galore. The problem being, finding a company willing to sponsor him. There is a market and there is a need, but of course the company will first try to find someone locally before even thinking of bringing someone from abroad.

You're very welcome. If you need any information, drop me a comment over at my blog. My partner is Canadian and we're in Vancouver in BC, so we MIGHT be able to help with information and suchlike.

It sucks when trying to find a job in a different country. I moved to Canada to be with my partner 3 years ago, until we marry, we're not even going to bother with the paperwork for me to be a permanent resident.

One thing you COULD do is visit Canada. You're able to be in the country for up to 6 months on a visitors visa which costs $75 I believe.

You could visit, and try to network, and see what comes of that. if there's nothing, then you're free to go back to Italy, and try again a little later in the year or whenever.

Sometimes it helps to visit and see how things work, then you have a much better idea of what to expect, and can change or modify your plans accordingly.

Thanks again for the information Retardedrugrat! I'm all up for going over to visit Canada, network etc. My husband is the one that is dragging his feet about it. He hasn't come out and said it, but reading between the lines he fears it would be a "wasted trip" and doesn't want to come back empty handed. I can see his point, to a certain extent. Yet at the same time if he's unwilling to put any effort into it....

Hopefully in 2008 will be a better year for everyone. We are working on the moment of making as much money as possible and saving it, so we can go over. I will make sure we get over the big puddle.
