A sample list of questions for an interview at the Canadian Embassy.
A visa officer can ask any of these questions in the order that he himself deems necessary. How to answer this or that question depends on the personal circumstances of each candidate. In any case, the answers must fully correspond to the information in your forms.
Here are some topics for the questions:
Questions on any of the subjects that you took at the university. Main functions and responsibilities at the present and past places of work. How did the education received relate to your specialty. Information about family members Information about the service in the army Information about trips to other countries Information on savings and other sources of financial resources.
The main “slippery” issues.
Why do you want to go to Canada? Do not start complaining about life and scolding your country! You are going to immigrate not as a refugee, but as a qualified professional professional. Say that Canada is a wonderful country, with the highest standard of living, that there is a wonderful nature. Say that in Canada there is a low crime rate and excellent working conditions. Make a compliment to the world’s most honest immigration system.
What part of Canada do you want to live and why? Here the main thing is not to be silent. The immigration officer does not need to understand that you wrote Toronto or Vancouver just because you do not know the other cities of Canada. You must explain the reasons that prompted you to make this choice. Usually they talk about acquaintances and friends in this or that area of Canada. If they are not. then prepare to show. that you conducted a detailed study of this area through the Internet. You will be asked to name the sites where you were, ask to tell something about the province and the city where you are going. You have to be ready for this.
What kind of job are you looking for in Canada? The main mistake in this matter is to tell the truth. Yes, everyone understands that if you succeed in working as a corporate director, an engineer on a drilling rig or a restaurant chef in Toronto, at best, in 2-3 years. You understand this, and the visa officer understands this, but you must say in an unsteady voice that you are going to work in the specialty indicated in your application. And this is the only way. God forbid you to say that you are going to work as a taxi driver or a waiter.
Then the officer most likely himself will say that in Canada it will be difficult for you to get a job at once. Here you can already tell what specialties you have in addition, and how they will help you find the first “survival job”.
What are the preparations you have made so far? Convince the officer that you are already studying the situation in the city of Canada where you are going. Tell us that you are already selecting options for rented accommodation on such and such sites, studying employment opportunities, writing off potential employers, writing summaries and so on.
