The COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine continue to be cross-cutting issues in the Argentine reality. Health measures will be continuously evaluated based on the evolution of the incident, with the aim of flattening the coronavirus contagion curve without overloading the health system. In this sense, in the absence of a vaccine against this virus and the problems that cannot be solved in many parts of the world, many people are eager to change their lives.
The Canadian government calls all Argentines who want to work there and want to try their luck. The proposal is aimed at workers who can work in the field of information technology (IT) for one year, with an annual salary between 68,000 and 80,000 Canadian dollars (ranging from 51,000 to 60,000 US dollars, approximately).
The Talent Montreal invitation is very attractive for Argentines because it offers the possibility of working and studying in Canada for 12 months, of which the first 6 months are dedicated to studying and only work up to 20 hours per week, and the second phase is dedicated solely to work.
What differentiates Argentine workers and why should they look so much abroad? For the human resources expert Alejandro Melamed, although it is impossible to generalize the Argentine worker, there are still some characteristics that distinguish him from the rest of the world: "He is a Person accustomed to facing difficulties, he has very good adaptability, which makes him an option ideal for many organizations around the world. It is also known for its innovation, which is why they are in high demand and sought after all over the planet. ".
The specialist pointed out that: “The Argentine is characterized by producing innovative solutions quickly, which gives it a high position because we live in a turbulent world and the ability to generate different options anywhere in the world is highly valued. On the other hand, he is very easy to integrate into all teams, attracted by social activities, seeks to take leadership positions and is very willing to discover new cultures and learn".
The fact is that in addition to calling to study and work, Canada also offers a program called "Express Entry" so that people from all over the world can obtain residence rights. One of the most important requirements applicable to the program is that they must work in the immigration occupation they seek.

“Those who want to gain work experience abroad should consider all the implications for good luck: detachment, not returning quickly to their home country, facing a completely different culture, meeting new people and having to adapt. On the other hand, knowing that when you live in another country, it is important to understand the rules, routines and logic that are used in those regions and know how to respect them. Mohamed concluded: “Every experience is a learning experience and it is important when you learn from it. The more experience you get, the more rewarding it will be. "
