USA and Canada Rather Than Australia Offer Maximum Employment Potential to Foreign Students
After years of research and studies relating to the subject, it has finally been confirmed that USA and Canada are the greener pastures as compared to Australia, for immigrant students planning to stay back after their course of studies is concluded.
Aside from visa and technical difficulties these students encounter, there are obvious reasons why foreign students find it hard to get accepted in various jobs.
What happens in USA and Canada? USA and Canada have been hot favourites as destinations for higher studies. Aside from scholastic excellence, these countries stand for a liberal life style, allowing for a lot of flexibility for immigrants. They have a sound academic system that understands and provides for the needs of foreign students
Canada and USA allow foreign students to work on and off campus, a certain number of hours per week, with or without work permits depending on various conditions, as they study. The labour market in these countries provides employment opportunities for all kinds of immigrants. Canadian authorities actually encourage skilled students to stay and join their work force.
Needless to say, international students struggle with financial aspect of their education and stay in the country.
To ensure a smooth execution of all these plans, there are experts in universities, who specialize in evaluating immigration papers and academic potential of international students, apprising them of things they can and can not do with their visa. Some students might also find employment in companies and firms which help them with appropriate visa and other documentation.
Australia- A story Gone Almost Wrong: Australia, like Canada and USA makes for an excellent destination for students but has its own set of obstacles. Time and again, the country has been under fire for being too extreme in its approach to protectionism, saving up most jobs for locals and not the more qualified foreigners.
The country doesn’t provide for too many job opportunities for foreign students while they study.
The numbers speak and suggest that Permanent residency is what most employers look for, which is not actually a bad thing because no one would want to hire someone who will eventually go home to a different country altogether. This mind set has taken hold of the job market in Australia and poses a huge problem for international students. Some of them land up in the land of Kangaroos with a plan to settle there for life and count on being able to find a job as their ticket to a PR status. However, it is a vicious circle as employers are hesitant to hire those without the status.
While on one hand, Australia is correct in its own right, on the other, it stands to lose valuable man power with these standards.
