When we talk about immigrating to a new country, you may think about all the obstacles you may face, and furthermore, if you are high skilled immigrant. To succeed amount the in-born citizens you must be creative and very flexible.
Recently studies show that in-born people do better, and are likely finding a job. I strongly agree with these studies. There are hundreds of barriers when it comes to secure an employment as a new immigrant. As for myself I can tell that, there is a long way ahead of me before finding a respectable and fairly remunerate job. Firstly, it doesn’t matter how highly skilled immigrant you are, the barriers to go through still there. What are the barriers or challenges in your “new country”? Learn the official language, understand the work system, and accept the culture, these are the main challenges for myself as a newly immigrant.
If we speak about the Canadian immigration system, the system opens up its doors to the best-qualified and high skilled workers. It is a fact that I qualified and filled out their request but also to know that I am still struggling to find a job. As I mentioned before one of my main challenges as a new immigrant is to learn and master the official language, this is one is the most difficult ones for me because I am coming from a country in which my mother language is no English but Spanish. Learning the language may take you some time and this become a disadvantage compare with the in-born people who doesn’t need it. This time that I’ve been spending learning the language is the time that normal in-born person is achieving in work experience.
Then, understand the work system. Even though that I hold a degree in Business and think that this could be enough to have a job in here, this is not true at all. The immigration system thinks that bringing qualified and high skilled workers will improve the economic system. But, having a big amount of these immigrants makes the competition harder, not only with...

Having a Job too love
I was born to be someone special, someone talented, someone people would one day look back and remember. When I was younger, I remember sitting in my 1st grade class looking at a sheet of paper with only one question listed: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Unlike every other kid in my class who wrote down either “Ballerina,” “Astronaut,” and “Cowboy,” I wrote down “Musician.” Now that I’m to the point where it’s time to choose my career path, the only difference from 1st grade and now is that I want to be a music educator, director, and composer. These days, a Music Educator makes a decent annual salary, has a great work environment, and the educational requirements aren’t as strenuous and long as some of the educational requirements are for other career paths. In this day and age, not very many people have the opportunity to turn something they’ve been passionately involved with all their lives, and turn it into a career they love. I’d rather have a career that provides me with a job that I love coming to every day, than a job that I was forced to settle with and hate.
The job description of a music educator solely depends on what kind type of music educator you want to be. For me, I want to be a University educator. A university educator focuses on teaching students who are serious about pursuing a path in...
...How Immigrants Create Jobs
` For many years Americans have addressed the issue of immigrants as a threat to the economy as they take away jobs from natives of the United States. People state that immigrants will work for lower wages and in worse conditions than a native, which makes them more desirable to employ. But, is this assumption accurate? Or do immigrants actually create jobs and help the economy of the United States? Research is now stating that immigration and unemployment are unrelated. Immigrants actually create jobs and boost the economy by purchasing goods from native businesses and by creating their own businesses (Value Added).
These are just two examples of how immigrants help to create jobs in the United States. They also tend to compliment native workers as they are skilled in different areas and a small wage increase happens for the native workers because of this. Immigrants are more likely than a native to get an education in science and math programs. According to Tamar Jacoby in her article “Most Immigrants Create Jobs” she states, “60 to 70 percent of the students in American computer science and electrical engineering graduate programs are foreign-born” (Jacoby). America cannot afford to allow these immigrants with such great skill to...

Why is it so difficult to find a job? This has become one of the most frequently asked questions this day in age.

THE TROUBLE WITH TALENT: ARE WE BORN SMART OR DO WE GET SMART?

Seal attended Barnard College, where she graduated magna cum laude. She is the author of two books: Riches and Fame and I the Pleasures of Sense (1971) and Motivated Minds: Raising Children to Love Learning (2001). "The Trouble with Talent" appeared in the July, 1993 issue o/Lear's magazine.
'Jim Stigler was in an awkward position. Fascinated by the fact that Asian students routinely do better than American kids at elementary math, the UCLA psychologist wanted to test whether persistence might be the key factor. So he designed and administered an experiment in which he gave the same insolvable math problem to separate small groups of Japanese and American children. 2 Sure enough, most American kids attacked the problem, struggled briefly—then gave up. The Japanese kids, however, worked on and on and on. Eventually, Stigler stopped the experiment when it began to feel inhumane: If the Japanese kids were uninterrupted, they seemed willing to plow on indefinitely. 3 "The Japanese kids assumed that if they kept working, they'd eventually get it," Stigler recalls. "The Americans thought, 'Either you get it or you don't.'" 4 Stigler's work, detailed in his 1992 book The Learning Gap...
...location. “Push factors are generally negative, such as poor economic conditions, lack of opportunity, discrimination, political oppression, and war. Whereas pull factors are generally positive, such as better economic opportunity, political freedom, and favorable reception toward immigrants” (Potocky-Tripodi, 2002, p. 13).
In order to understand the resettlement and adaption of immigrants in a host country, it is critical to examine all aspects of animmigrant migration path. In light of this phenomenon is significant to understand this process through the lens of three stages of migration: premigration and departure, transit, and resettlement. Theses stages can serve as an ongoing frame of reference for evaluation and comparing their current experience in the host country. “The stage of migration framework provides a context for understating and helping immigrants families and individuals by linking the migration experiences in the original and intermediate countries with experiences in the country of destination” (Drachman, Kwon-Ahn, & Paulino, 1996, p. 627). Using this framework an interview was conduct to analyze the human experiences of migration in attempt to further gain insight on immigrant who take into account not only their economic needs but also social and cultural differences, which may or may not be accepted.
For the privacy of the interviewee, the name Ms. Stephenson will be...
“Why the New Jobs Go to Immigrants
In March of 2005 a journalist by the name of David R. Francis form the Christian Science Monitor wrote “Why the New Jobs Go to Immigrants”. He argued that millions of American jobs had been taken by illegal immigrants; this was because former president George Bush was letting them. He figured it would grant them a way for U. S. citizenship. Many people would agree with David Francis’s claim and why he expressed that more illegals have jobs than Americans. Throughout the article he provides examples from Aristotle’s three strategies for argumentation: logos, ethos, and pathos. Mr. Francis not only gave lots of evidence to support his thought process but he gave real life examples.
The guiding belief of a person, group, or organization is better known as Ethos. While reading why the new jobs go to immigrants there were many examples that expressed these argument. For example the author used a quote from Andrew Sum to support his argument. “There has been no net job gain for natives “(Francis) says Andrew Sum and economist at northeastern university. The reason being is all the immigrants get the jobs before the natives because they are willing to receive less pay. Mr. Francis also gave many more examples like “While it’s more difficult for immigrants to...
