International student shares frustrations with job search in Canada: Opinion

In an article for Maclean’s, Mohammad Khosravani voices his frustration with the search for work after completing an education in Canada. Khosravani shares that he moved from Iran to Thunder Bay to pursue a master’s degree in AI at Lakehead University and greatly valued that experience. However, he has struggled to find meaningful, steady work in Canada since his graduation. “I was offered a scholarship to get an education here, but now that I’m at the critical stage of launching my career, I can’t give back,” writes Khosravani. “I feel like I’ve been cut adrift.” Khosravani concludes that while he feels grateful and loyal to Canada and Lakehead, he cannot stay without a stable career and is now looking for opportunities outside of the country.
