    651 must be the best on Eslpod Genre:)
    How are you guys. How is it shaking ?
    I had an interview for teaching thing they gimme( give me) a bad news to my face. I am not teaching material
    I don’t have what it takes. I am supposed to get some kind of license for it. I must write lots of assessment exams.
    But , here teaching is a well-paid job,and lots of benefit. Basically, here in Canada any jobs pertinent to elderlies are relatively well-paid jobs and more importantly they are secure jobs. On the top of that , there are lots of job opening for them.so,if you are nurse, or willing to work in a nursing house, or those labs for blood work and heart beat and so on. You are on here big time. But,first you must sit 3 or 4 exams. And, let’s level with you guys. Those exams ,hell lots of work.
    Cananada is a very good country except for the harsh winter ther rest is good. Generally speaking, Canada is haven for elderlies. Free healthcare , monthly payment ,and friendly people.
