In Demanding Canadian experience is no way to conduct business, Elliot (2017) argues that, Canadian work experience from recently arrived foreigners is not the correct method to give employments. In the beginning he describe this by giving a case of a graduated Indian women who recently came to Canada, confronted job issues (para 1). Writer also explain how country like Canada who had great history and people feel proud of it but immigrants needs to endure in a similar nation (para 2).
She also describes the term Dress for success . She explain how women faces huge problems to getting dressed for interviews because they belong to different country and culture(para 3). She reflects the journey of a refugee in Canada where they live without easy access of technology, knowledge and no social interactions with other people(para 4). She further confer the emotions of women who are qualified but being judged on the basis of their family names(Para 9). She concludes it by giving some statistics of how immigrants can raise the turnover of business with their skills but Canadian employers has to figure out and recognize it.
Elliot makes a very effective argument that Canadian work involvement from as of late arrived foreigners isn't right technique to give jobs that numerous outsiders can identify with. Through giving genuine illustrations and showing it candidly get the interests of readers because a large portion of the cases depend on most of the immigrants workers. While her interest to sentiment and ethos was very compelling, though logos were bit immaterial due to lack of information.
Elliot (2017), appeals to pathos very effectively to support her argument that requesting Canadian experience isn't the best approach to direct the business for immigrants. She examine about the immigrants career in Canada and the issues looked by them while searching for work. In the beginning of article, author emphasizes her point very emotionally by giving a real life example of an Indian lady who came to Canada with her daughter looking for bright career opportunities(Para 1). To make point more grounded and clear Elliot describe how that lady faces problem while looking for job in Canada as she is well educated and had experience in business field. This story can affect readers emotionally because most of them can relate this to their real lives and some of them had same experience. Author shares some views of women that how they are judged by their family names during job selection. The selection of Anecdotes incite sentiments of sensitivity among the perusers.
Additionally, author depict an ongoing report from Canadian work which uncovers that job candidates with Asian names are less inclined to call for interviews(Para 2) this point had a passionate effect on readers. Although Elliot s appeal to pathos is compelling. However he can make it more impressive by giving examples of men too. She only describes the experience of women during job selection.
Secondly, Elliot s appeals to Ethos effectively to support her claim that new immigrants confront challenges that go far beyond finding the right outfit for an interview. Author describes her own experience to make her point stronger and trustworthy. Elliot works in a charitable organization where they provide help to new immigrant women. They arrange chat session with women ask about their problems which they faced during looking for job in Canada .After getting know about their emotional journey they help them regarding professional outfit, build resume, linkedIn profile etc.(Para 7).
Andrea also point this claim that promoting opportunities for new Canadian should be on radar which appeals to logos. She supports this claim with a few information from gathering leading body of Canada in 2015 which expresses that if Canadian bosses improved the situation occupation of perceiving aptitudes of new workers than they can procure extra 10 billion dollars at least (para 10).
Although author s appeals to ethos is compelling and trustworthy because my friend who is new to Canada had same experience while looking for job here. While on side of logos she can support it with some more data or statistics, there are some logical fallacies but somewhat effective.
Overall, Elliot, who is an American journalist and staff writer, provides an entertaining argument of demanding Canadian work experience is not correct method to give jobs to new immigrants which many in her audience will agree with. She describes her own experience and other people experiences that faces problem while looking for jobs in Canada. Author s mainly shows cases of women in most of the paragraphs. In contrast, she should focus on all gender categories of immigrants which can make her argument more passionate. However, a person should be selected on the basis of his education and skills not on the basis of his ethnicity or nationality.
