    Anyone know anything of this or done anything like it before? (Accomodation/working permit wise, I'm hardly expecting you lot to have flown a plane out there)

    I wind up sitting here and thinking of great questions to ask and then forgetting them before I ask the fucking things.

    Edit: Actually while I'm here, what the fuck do you write on a CV/Resume? I have basically nothing to put on it bar my pilots license and high school, and maybe my divers license. and a couple of previous jobs.

    All bar the flying stuff they won't really care about anyway!

    Anyone got a post-it note? :P
    Where are you from? Got a friend up there from Australia and he says it's really easy up to 35, would assume it's the same for the rest of the Commonwealth.

    He gets a working visa (or something to that effect, it lets him work and live there) for 1 year and he just needs to leave Canada to renew it each year so he ducks down to Seattle for a day trip and does it at the Australian (or maybe Canadian, I don't remember) consulate.

    Thats promising I'm 24 and English, currently living in England. If you could, could you ask him what particular visa it is (Eg M1 is the US student visa, H1B the working visa etc, I'm sure the canadian one will have a name)

    Thanks either way <3

    Yeah, I'll ask him when I catch him online next. Might take a day or two with the time zones though.

    fake edit: http://www.international.gc.ca/exper...ang=eng&view=d this might be it, at least it's a start for something to read.

    For information about working visas, I'm sure there is a website for that sort of thing. Try searching "Immigration Canada" or something like that. Government sites have a way of being cryptic... in this case just call them during business hours, they are usually quite helpful.

    If you end up in Canada, you should fly us NA people around ala katamarino air.

    You are 24 and have never written a resume before?

    If I get chance too I'd be happy too!

    Yeah, sounds shit that doesn't it? I worked in the family business for like 3 years and younger than that, I was in a supermarket - part time job when I was like 17. Since 2010 I've been working on flying stuff so I've only ever been in training. All of the above never really warranted a CV/Resume

    Spin the family business stuff so its sounds like you were running/overseeing the place. Also point out the various skills you developed while at that position. It can be an asset.

    So did pops pay for your food/rent/flight school all this time?

    Yeah I come from a fortunate family, in that I don't have to get a loan that I won't pay off till I'm 40. Its basically setting me up for life but in truth I can't wait to be living alone and independently. Although my entire life plans are a bit much for the day thread :P

    Yeah there is a difference between being "set up for life" and being 24 with no idea how to write a resume and 0 applicable job experience.

    I can see why you are eager to change things up, moving halfway around the world should do the trick :P

    I love Canada, and from what I hear Vancouver is a beautiful place. The weather is temperate compared to most of Canada so it shouldn't be too much of a shock. Good luck, keep us posted.
