I've been following the immigration trackers online and the first tracked permanent residence applicants from April just got approved. They are about 5 weeks ahead of me, so that could point toward my application getting approved end October, which would be freakin awesome. Today i am sending off my supplementary work permit application so that hopefully i will be granted permission to work at the same time as being approved. I still have no idea what kind of work i want to do.
I have thinking about industries i would like to work in. I like the idea of food and entertainment from the creativity side, but the pay is really shitty and i don't have a way to break in above the bottom rung. I also like the idea of working in an industry that would play to a strength of my life experience - travel and immigration... I always thought it'd be cool to work at an airport, or at the UN or something. I've been through healthcare, manufacturing, construction and high-tech in the past and they all ended up driving me nuts - not because they weren't interesting at first but because the only option for advancement was to become a more accomplished computer programmer, not more knowledgeable about the industry itself. Learning more about computer programming per se really doesn't interest me. I wonder if being an immigrant and knowing a couple languages could get me starting off a few rungs up from the bottom in a different industry that'd leave me more interesting avenues going forward.
Anywho guess i should get to FedEx/Kinkos to get my application together.
