The US is a land of opportunity for tech engineers, and the number of openings has skyrocketed in recent years.
While that’s good news for those looking to move to Canada or elsewhere, it could be an uphill battle for the few remaining candidates who still have to learn the ropes of the job market in a country where the average salary is $73,000.
And the job search process is getting more challenging for those hoping to break into the field.
The US has more than 1,600 job openings, but only 7 per cent of those positions are filled.
The Canadian Government says it will be hiring up to 10,000 engineers in the coming years, and according to a report from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, there are just under 5,000 engineering positions available in the country.
The job market is a real drag on Canadian companies, and many are looking for ways to reduce the strain on the workforce.
That’s why the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research is launching an online training course, and there are several other programs offering online training to help people get the most out of their skills.
There are several programs offering free online training, and it can be beneficial for those who aren’t currently pursuing a career in the tech industry.
But if you’re not planning to go to school, you may not want to enroll in the courses.
“There’s a lot of pressure that comes from the government to get the people they need,” says Erin McKeown, a senior program manager at the institute.
“If you want to pursue a career, and you don’t have the skills, you can’t afford to spend the money to go and get the skills.”
For those who do want to go, there’s a plethora of online courses to choose from.
These courses, which are hosted by the University of Toronto, offer a variety of topics and help prepare students for a job in a variety.
“The courses are very interesting, and they’re aimed at a wide range of students,” McKeon says.
The programs are available for both students and non-students.
“We also have an online course for students, and that’s a great way to start,” McEvoy says.
“It’s a good way to get in the door and get some experience.”
The first one available is called The Big Idea and it’s aimed at engineering students.
“Students can get a basic understanding of what a big idea is, and how to make something from scratch,” McVeyon says, adding that it also gives students an opportunity to meet with top engineers.
McKeone is also running a free online course called The Startup Journey that teaches students how to set up a business, manage customers and build a customer acquisition pipeline.
“You’ll get to know a lot about building your business from scratch, and what you need to know about your product and how it works,” Mcevoy says, while McKea says the course will be especially helpful for engineers who want to get more involved in the industry.
There’s also an online program called Startup Growth called Tech Entrepreneurship.
“In this program, we’re going to focus on the startup industry, so we’ll teach you everything you need for building a business,” McChetown says.
There is also an all-in-one, online course on entrepreneurship called The Art of Startup.
The program is free for students of any age and offers tips on how to start a business and how the business works.
There aren’t any programs offering technical training for engineers.
“A lot of students don’t want to take the time to take a course,” McKeey says.
While there are many opportunities available in Canada, the demand is growing as companies look for new talent.
In Canada, there were 3,903 applications for jobs posted last year, and while that number is up from 3,602 last year and 2,852 in 2013, the number still remains well below the US.
That trend is likely to continue, with job seekers hoping for an easier path to success in the US and other countries.
The tech industry has also experienced a sharp increase in vacancies in recent months, with many companies closing their doors.
As the number grows, companies need to find new ways to fill those positions, and these online courses can be a great tool for companies looking to reduce their workload.
“With the amount of demand and the quality of the work being done, it can make it even easier to get an engineering job in Canada,” McAvoy says of the online courses.
McCKEEY says that the courses will be offered to those who are interested in applying for jobs, but she warns that there are a number of additional requirements that students must meet in order to get through the program.
“When we’re talking about engineering, it’s all about networking and being a team player, and getting to know
