4. Assessing and Selecting Internationally Trained Workers
Assessing and Selecting Internationally Trained Workers
Make better hiring choices with a fair and accurate assessment process.
As an employer, you have experience in assessing the qualifications of candidates for a job. You know that accurately measuring competencies, skills and language abilities is the key to selecting candidates who meet the job requirements.
You can improve your assessment process by ensuring that it is fair, accurate and equitable for all workers, including ITWs:
- develop assessment criteria based on a good job description;
- recognize the value of international credentials and experience;
- focus on the skills, behaviours and knowledge required for the job; and
- address barriers for ITWs.
The assessment process should also address any necessary certification requirements.
Foreign Credential Recognition is the process of verifying education, training and job experience obtained in another country and comparing it to the standards established for Canadian workers.
