Jobs in Calgary

Hi all

My wife and I arriving soon - im a Graphic designer, photographer and video editor and my wife is a Geneticist and Biotechnician.

We have our Permanent Residency and are legal to work in Canada.

Anyone know of any jobs in the hidden market in and around Calgary that we could apply for?

I have about 12 years experience in Design and am skilled in video editing and photography as well.

My wife currently works for Roche South Africa have 5plus years experience and holds a masters in Genetics.

We are both hard workers and will do whatever we can to make it work, in our related fields or not until we grow into our fields.

We are planning on moving to Calgary (My brother lives there) in March/April 2018 with our 2 year old however if we get job offers sooner we will relocate accordingly.

Any advice, direction or possible positions would be much appreciated :)

Many thanks in advance

Greg and Juli

Welcome to the forums, Greg and Juli.

I had a chuckle when you mentioned the “hidden market” as I had no idea the market was hiding from us. I think it is more a case of “where’s the bloody door to this thing?” :lol:

Kidding aside, has the wife tried to reach out to anyone at Roche Canada? Her profession seems specialist enough that it may help get attention? Sorry I do not understand genetics aside from it’s a science. Just a note though that Roche Canada is based in Quebec but the pharma division is in Mississauga, Ontario.

If that doesn’t work, there are a couple more pharma companies that could probably be tried.

 I don’t have much in ways of connections, especially in Calgary, but I do wish you both good luck with the job hunt.

Hi GregKriel.

Welcome to the forum.

Chances of wifey finding a simalr job in calgary are likely 0.

I'd say, Quebec, Ontario or Winnipeg where a whole lot of biochem research is being done.

 

Good luck.
