Words of wisdom:
"Remember your weekly mix of activity will vary, depending on how soon you need to be employed, how much time you have to spend on your campaign each week, the economy, the relative difficulty of job finding in your targeted field, and the relative effectiveness of each job search method with regards to your job objective. Good Luck!!!" [source: JobSearch-in-Canada.com]

A note about the Gold paved streets is relevant here:
Those who visit Staten Island, get to read what an Italian had to say about immigrants' and their expectations:
"I came to America because I heard the streets were paved with gold. When I got here, found out three things:
First, the streets weren't paved with gold;
second, they weren't paved at all:
and third, I was expected to pave them." source

As far as Canadian immigrant is concerned, the story and the statement is much the same. Any professional who comes to Canada is told that he / she needs 'local experience,' (aka, you have to pave them with gold)...
