Developer From Brazil Hired in Canada: 

The journey to getting hired abroad

Language was a challenge for Uelsson. He sign up to our free platform in 2017 but realized his English was not good enough to start applying for jobs. Instead of giving up, he took it as a mission.

“I tried and I failed. So I put in my head that I had to improve my English to make it possible for me to achieve this goal of getting a job abroad. I focused a lot on studying English. I tried to take the English Verification, I believe, seven times during the past years. I like that you can try it again if you don’t get a good score. It’s free”.

When Uelsson was finally able to apply, the whole process started happening faster. He got an email from VanHack about a position one month later. “I got a call with Cecilia [from VanHack] to check if my skills matched those of the job offer. After that the process started to flow. I talked to the HR person and I received some technical tests to complete. Then after some steps, I got a call from HR saying that I was approved”.
