How to make things happen in Canada

A. Be patiently and politely persistent.
B. Give gifts to the decision makers.
C. Give gifts and perks to gatekeepers.

Leave a comment to tell us the answer!

Last week we asked whether an Indian would like to be alone when he/she is upset. Here’s the answer:

False. He would generally not like to be alone in this situation but have the support and perhaps advice of those close to him or her.

  • Well, I don’t know if I’ve ever needed to ‘make things happen’, But I would vote for Patient and Persistent. That’s how we are taught to get a job: keep checking back, smiling, reminding them you’re interested, and refreshing your resume (CV) until they finally break-down and hire you!
