Default International experience only, seeking a banking position

I'm a Canadian citizen holding a B.Admin degree from a Canadian University. However, all my experiece is in Greek companies located in Greece, Including 3 1/2 years in financial institutions as a private banker. Any hope for me to get a banking job in Canada at the age of 40?

You have the experience just not the Canadian experience that so many recruiters and employers ask for but you have a degree form Canadian university which puts you in a better position.. You certainly have a chance to find a job and you are not too old!

Hi Griniou,

Have you applied for any banking jobs yet? How was your luck?

Kind regards,
Simon

Default banking positions....

Thanks for your replies. No I have not applied anywhere yet . The reason is that I find it impossible for a financial institution to consider me as a candiadate for any position since I live overseas. Any thoughts on this?

Honestly, I don't think you can find a job in Canada if you are not in Canada. Are you considering coming to Canada?
