Est-ce possible de décrocher un emploi sans diplôme ou sans expérience ?

It is sometimes difficult to find a job if you have little work experience. But don’t give up! Many employers are willing to hire less experienced candidates and then train them on-site. So yes, it is possible to get a job without having the most detailed resume in the world.

Skills Development

Not sure what to talk about during your job interview? Share the skills and expertise you’ve developed outside of the professional world. Highlight your personal projects. For example, if you’re a car enthusiast who spends all his free time in the garage, mention it! This information can be very interesting for a recruiter. They will better understand your interests and be able to ask you more questions about your strengths in mechanics.

For some positions, companies are mainly looking for driven people. Do not hesitate to demonstrate your desire to learn or your passion for the company’s sector of activity.

Many employers are willing to provide on-the-job training so that you don’t have to go back to school. Getting paid to learn is even more motivating! Turn to organizations that have training programs in place. Thanks to these programs, you will be able to move up the corporate ladder more easily without necessarily having a degree.

For example, at Soucy, the majority of our supervisors began their careers in entry-level positions. Over time, they were able to improve their skills and become experts in their field.  In fact, many Soucy employees have changed positions while staying within the company. If one of our employees is looking for new challenges, he can apply for a job opening in his subsidiary or the twelve other Soucy's subsidiaries.

Sectors Where It Is Possible to Work Without a Degree

You don’t have a degree? Focus on industries that necessitate less academic study, such as manual professions.
