I am a recent graduate from college. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree from the University of Guelph, in Guelph, Ontario (just outside of Toronto). I am currenty looking for a job in Software Development. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas or techniques for a job search? Relocation is fine, and I don't have to worry about any Visa as I possess American citizenship. Thanks a lot. Neil
I work in Boston. Most of the people who I work with, who relocated, are from China or India. But there is one co-worker who is from Canada. He is a contractor. I don't know what job hunting is like for recent grads but there are lots of companies in the greater Boston area. Good luck.
Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.
I am originally from Canada (Windsor) too and I have graduated just a year ago. Anyway, having a US citizenship is so valuable. I am currently in Northern Virgina and there is a lot of openings here for individuals who can obtain security clearance. Number of companies here have government or military contracts however You have to be US citizen to land a job in any of them. If you have a CS or Engineering degree definately think of moving here.

Take a look at the washingtonjobs.com. You will see number of openings from Saic, Logicon and so on... There are many others. You have to understand that obtaining a job at one of these is not a given especially for an entry level individual. They have definately more openings because they must hire a US citizen with a certain level of security clearance. I believe working in companies like those ones will give you at least some job security which I think is very important in todays IT market. I can just say I wish I am a US citizen. Vladan
My previous laptop never exploded like that. Read this tiny ad while I sweep up the shards.
