Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the advantage of working with GTA?

GTA increases your chance of finding a great opportunity and landing the job.

  • Be first in line for the best jobs at the most interesting companies—jobs that may not be advertised yet (or at all).
  • Receive career support and advice, including help with your resume, interview preparation and tips on personal presentation.
  • Get coaching on how to negotiate compensation.

When will I learn the details of the role, including salary, start date, contract term, and whether it’s a remote or in-house position?

We make every effort to give you all the information early in the process, and we usually can. However, some of our client employers prefer to wait until an applicant is shortlisted for the job before they share detailed information. Typically, once you’ve applied to GTA and demonstrated that your skills are a good fit for a specific job, you’ll learn the details and requirements of the role. When you receive an official job offer, it will include all the details of your salary and start date.

We have our tech team including software developers, data scientists, dev ops etc. (as appropriate) review your results for quality, style and approach to ensure you are a great fit for the role, the work environment and the company itself.
  3. 3Resume preparation: If you’re selected to be put forward for a role, our team will work with you to prepare including options to improve your resume for appeal and general profile, while keeping it accurate and targeted.

  8. Follow-up interview: If the first interview goes well, many (but not all) employers will request one or more follow-up interviews. GTA will help you schedule and prepare for these interviews.
  9. Job offer: If the employer thinks you’re a good fit for their team, you’ll receive an official job offer through GTA. With GTA’s support, you and your employer will agree on a salary. If you’re happy with the terms, you’ll accept the job offer. Congratulations!

I’m Canadian. Can you help me find work at a U.S. company?

Yes. If you’re a permanent resident of Canada or a Canadian citizen, we can find you employment in Canada, and remote work opportunities with U.S. companies.

Is the Canada/U.S. border closure during COVID-19 preventing U.S. companies from hiring Canadians?

Canadian citizens are still allowed into the U.S. with a valid passport. Canadians can get work in the U.S. with a variety of immigration pathways organized by U.S. employers. Many U.S. companies are hiring Canadian professionals for remote and local positions during COVID-19. If you’re interested in working remotely for a U.S. company, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada.

Will you help me with the paperwork I need to work for a U.S. company?

Yes. Once you have a job offer, we’ll give you advice and hands-on help with documentation—whether you’re relocating or working remotely.

Will I owe you a fee if you find me a job? Will I owe you a fee if you don’t find me a job?

NO. We don’t charge you any fees for recruitment. Our fee is paid by employers.
