My partner is very likely to take a teaching job in Ontario and I will be going with. We'll probably live in downtown Toronto and I would like to work in the city. As an American, the prospect of looking for work in another country seems intimidating. I have browsed through a lot of the earlier postings on this website about this topic and it seems that it might not be so difficult--I have already started reading up on the enabling legislation.
I'm just wondering if anyone can give me a sense of what the job market is like for private sector and public sector jobs in TO right now. I have about seven years of private sector experience in New York City and New Jersey.
Also, is it worthwhile to join CIP in advance of seeking a job? What are salaries like? I am used to a fairly high salary and cost of living here in NYC; it looks like housing costs are pretty low by comparison in Toronto judging by the postings on Craigslist so I'm steeling for a cut.
