Slack is quickly becoming the messaging platform of choice for fast growing tech companies all over the world. It’s also becoming a platform to manage communities and to meet people with similar interests online.
That’s why we believe Slack is your secret weapon to get a job in Canada! There are many slack groups focused on startups and technology all over Canada that are full of developers, designers, marketers, entrepreneurs and yes, recruiters.
And best of all, they usually have a channel dedicated to Jobs where companies post opportunities, some of which are open to hiring remote or sponsoring a visa. We recommend you join as many as possible and introduce yourself to the community. Of course, you don’t want to act unprofessionally and spam these groups with your resume! Instead, join the conversation, add value and share interesting information.
NOTE: DO NOT JOIN THESE GROUPS JUST TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT CANADA! JOIN TO ADD VALUE AND HAVE SMART DISCUSSIONS!!
THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT FREE CONSULTANTS FOR YOU! YOU WILL MAKE VANHACK LOOK BAD BY SPAMMING THESE GROUPS!!! /rant
