First of all. hello to everyone!!

I know it is a long read but I would be grateful for any info that would help me gain employment.

I've searched the topic but came up with no relevant results so I'm posting to find out. I am a fairly new permanent Resident residing in Ontario., Brampton to be more specific. My friend who is also a new P.R. with a recognized iMBA has sent out many applications and posted on job sites. I know jobs are not easy to find but I would still think an international MBA might have some appeal. I myself am a foreign pharmacy graduate and would love to work as a pharmacist but can't even get a job as a pharmacy technician which would be helpful with experience plus help in paying for the many procedures in the registration/examination and licensing process. I even sat the U.S. FPGEE (Foreign pharmacy exam) but found out that it has no merit with the NABP or Ontario College of Pharmacists. It is very difficult, tedious and costly to go through that whole process I am starting to think it may even be a deliberate way to keep "outsider" out of the system. any how, it's a fairly nice country and I am yet to explore the other areas that might be good for settlement.

Opinions and suggestions are welcome. Thanks, James.

I will preface my comments by mentioning I have an MBA from a tier 1 US university. With that in mind, here are my thoughts...

MBA degrees are tricky. In my experience, these degrees are great support for established career experience. Like most business degrees, MBA programs rarely prepare someone for a specific field or career. With a few exceptions, the degree can support the resume but the degree will not stand on its own.

Just my 2 cents.
