You know, sometimes I wonder about that. There sure seems to be a few (not a lot) of Canadian ex-pats in New Mexico.

I have to wonder if the US is more welcoming to Cuh-nucks than Canada is to us *******s 'south of the border'. If so, maybe it's time for a change. I don't think we have a shortage of people in this country.

Well I know there are quite a lot of snowbirds who live part of the year in the Southwest or Southeast but I don't believe they have permission to work here. I'm not sure if you're a Canadian you can automatically assume you can just stroll across the border into an American job.

Back in the mid '70s when I had landed immigrant status in Canada, I would ocassionally venture south across the 49th parallell for a couple of weeks at a time. My Canadian girlfriend always travelled with me. She would work the odd job now and then, but it was off the books and cash under the table. That worked just fine for a short stint, but it would get old real quickly if that was an ongoing practice. I recall her being quite stressed out about it. She was always concerned about getting deported.

Sort of off-topic, but I have to say that one of the hottest and nicest ladies that I ever dated (years ago) was a Canadian. She wound up in the US in high school when her Dad--who was a Canadian who worked for an American company in Canada--got transferred to the US. She made no bones about her nationality--she called herself a "Canuck" and was proud of it. I'd love to meet another Canadian lady like her--I wonder if they're all like her?

Canada has free healthcare. In the US, not yet. Something to think about also.

That really wouldn't be an issue for someone coming down here to work for a larger company as most of those have health plans comparable to Canada's. They would also have the option of returning to Canada for treatment.

I am really wanting to get back to Colorado. I had to leave in order to find a job. I ended up in San Diego a year ago but Im hating it here now. I met the love of my life here and explored all the of the southern California I can handle. I need to get out of here.

My girlfriend, who I will marry, hales from Aspen. We have been back and felt alive again just being in the mountains. She would take a job wherever I can find a decent one. I am a Buff and would idealy like to find a job around Boulder, Golden or Lakewood. I have worked in the tech center before for a year. I would take any job that would cover my bills anywhere in Denver or on the front range just to get back.

The competition for jobs in COlorado is crazy. I remember leaving in 2010 with a bad taste in my mouth after competing for a job against 50 other candidates for an air quality permit reviewer in Denver. I applied to 400+ jobs for mechanical engineering over the coarse of 7 months and finally landed a job through CU career services in San Diego. Oh well. Hope to get back soon.

Hi Djschloss,

Recruiters in Colorado normally use job boards to look for candidates. You can post your resume in Monster, Careerbuilder and Dice. Those are the top websites used for sourcing. If you want, I can also help you out. Just send me a message so that we can discuss about your qualifications and skills to match a job opportunity.
