There's nothing wrong in doing a Master's. It's the expectation of having a local position. There's just nothing in Ontario.peanutz wrote: ↑Apr 25th, 2017 8:28 pmWow, this thread is saddening.
Hey OP, are you still there?
I think you should re-read this post. It concerns me that you might be doing a Masters in Ontario.
If you were going to put more time and money to do a Masters, you should have seriously considered applying to a US or German or some other program, outside of Canada. Maybe Singapore if they have any demand there...they speak English and yet have Asian connections. This would have expanded your connections and also give you potential access to better markets.
If you couldn't find a job you wanted here, how do you figure a Canadian Masters would help? :/
Do a Master's and apply elsewhere. US Gulf Coast has lot of opportunities. Check out chemical parks in Germany (e.g. Mannheim). Saudia Arabia has huge JVs with mega-complexes. Singapore's Jurong Island is literally an artificial island created specifically for the chemical industry.
The only language requirement is really English proficiency.
Lastly, a Canadian Master's is well recognized internationally. In the Swiss office I'm working in, 3 have Canadian degrees.
Now  -- How I relocated to Switzerland for work from Germany
Future  -- Cycle postponed until...?
