How to get work experience in a Canadian company

WorkExperienceinCanada.com was founded by Mr Daniel Dargis, engineer and general construction contractor, owner of Construction Daniel Dargis Inc. since 1989. After many study and business trips abroad, and through his vocation of helping immigrants and graduating students seeking employment, Mr Dargis has set up a structure within his construction, renovation, design, architecture and marketing-in-Canada business network to offer integration programs for employment through practical sessions in the workplace. The purpose of these programs is to facilitate the obtaining of a job by satisfying the demand of employers looking for candidates with at least a first relevant work experience in Quebec and in Canada. These programs or incubation sessions to company practice are preludes to obtaining employment in Quebec and Canada. They can also serve to better understand the operation of a Quebec SME in the construction sector for those who wish to work as self-employed professionals or also for those who wish to start a business on their own account.

Construction Daniel Dargis Inc. with WorkExperienceinCanada.com is more than a construction company. This is an important multidisciplinary network that receives and realizes various projects in several areas of construction such as: building engineering, architecture, interior design, construction and renovation, marketing and sales, computer graphics, administration and business development, and many others. Due to the multitude and variety of projects, the company can actually help students in their search for internships, graduating students and immigrating professionals looking for skills development and references to obtain a job, such as: engineers, architects, building designers, marketing, sales and business-development specialists, graphic designers, administrators, accounting clerks and many others.

This is the first construction company in Quebec and in Canada to create a pre-job practical training-in-the-field incubation department specially made to help job seekers obtain a first work experience in Quebec. Candidates first act as observers, and then they learn to master some software and practical work concepts in contact with experienced construction professionals and gradually candidates begin to implement this knowledge into practical and real projects. This while being in contact with professionals, companies, suppliers, customers and partners in projects like them coming from several countries and all of this while practicing French and English.
