2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Human Resources Consultant on Dec 4 2009
Format: Paperback
I work in Human Resources and thought that the content of this book is helpful to all employees, but especially those who are new to Canada. It is written in a down-to-earth manner and is immediately actionable. It covers everything from Canadian social norms to how to prepare for and make the most of your performance appraisal. Many books cover HOW to get a job in Canada, as a new immigrant. This is the first book that I have read that addresses how to be SUCCESSFUL in that job. The interviews in the book are very helpful, outlining the experience of many immigrants as well as feedback from senior management on their expectations. This is an excellent "on-boarding" tool for new employees who are also new immigrants. I recommend that it be made part of every orientation program, expecially given that the talent pool growth in Canada will come from immigration.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Corporate Trainer on Dec 3 2009
Format: Paperback
This book's friendly, conversational style makes it a pleasure to read. So many useful topics are covered -- workplace culture, telephone tips, business writing, getting along with your boss and coworkers, non-verbal communication, time management, and problem solving to name just a few. I can see it being helpful to a wide range of readers, including newcomers, ESL instructors and corporate Diversity departments. It starts with the basics yet goes much further, developing wide-ranging cultural understanding that can contribute significantly to a person's comfort level and success on the job.

Please just read this book if you are an immigrant to Canada. It would be a very helpful book not only for your workplace and but also for your daily life in Canada. Check out in your local library, you can find it there!

Thanks Lynda Goldman.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Gautam Nath on Dec 3 2009
Format: Paperback
Sometimes it is not the big things in life that make the difference but the little things.

Migrating to Canada is one of the biggest turning point in many of our lives as newcomers and initially finding a job seems like the biggest challenge we face but not so.

The challenges continue and you best be equipped for the next phase in the journey that continues ahead, acculturization into Canada and her workplace.

Lynda's book breaks this down in bite size nuggets for newcomers in the Canadian workspace. Some things seem very commonsensical and some things new but having them documented for a good read gives it that value.

You will soon realize that it is not just about getting a new job, it is about climbing the corporate ladder, upgrading responsibility areas, transitioning to better opportunities and finally reaching the 'manzil' that you were looking for.

A two hour read is but a mere price to pay in your journey forward to equip you with these words of wisdom.

Makes a good collectors item too as it will stay valid for years to come.

Finally the good thing about this book is that it is not Lynda giving us her gyan like in many other cases but she has very nicely brought in comments and opinions from many people who have been in our shoes and can speak from experience.

Buy it, hire it, borrow it or steal it but indeed you must read it.

Be there or be square.
