Guys,

Just wondering about my options of getting a job in Canada and getting my permanent residency after that

I know this route:
Apply for permanent residency and then go and find a job

But what about this:
Find a job and go there on some kind of visa and then apply for PR

If you have a job, getting a work permit will take only 4 hrs inside the consulate. No line. Give the passport and come back within 4 hrs to collect it.
No labor certification for computer(s/w for sure, dunno about h/w side for sure) professionals or petition. Need to show offer letter from the company and letter from company to the consulate.

1. Post on canadian job sites with local canadian address
2. get an interview call, canadian employers do not do interviews over phone like in the US. They ask for personal appearances.
3. If you land the job get an offer letter
4. Take the offer letter to the CCanadian embassy and get a work visa.
5. Once you enter Canada apply for Permanent residency.
