feels like yesterday when we said, “It is already September”, but now September
is almost over and we are looking forward to a big ceremony of our culture,
“Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving Day)”. Although, it
doesn’t feel like happy holiday cause of Covid-19.
It is a little bit early to say its holiday season
now, but there will be few people waiting for the holiday season.
Those will be

So, there are even
people who want to put all their luck into that year.
It’s the most competitive
place of all.
But unfortunately, this year, even if those who were selected for

There are lots of rumors
saying that people who participated for working holiday,
some of them continued

some changed their identity as a College or
some apply for permanent residence, and also get married.
But is this just a rumor? The answer is “NO”.
real examples of people who were in working holidays and
it might seem a little
too exaggerated if we tell you that there are some people who got a permanent
residency within a year,
which is working holiday period, but it is quite true
that after participating for working holiday, you can be a permanent resident.
So, MURPHY is going to share some of the information
about working holidays today.
And our point is to go for permanent residence!
Today’s introduction was a bit long, right? Lol
The rage of people who apply for working holiday is
from 20s to early 30s.
And all of them have different goals which includes
getting permanent residence or those who want to challenge once more after
Now, then should we go over the possibilities which
working holiday can provide us in different age, one by one?
First, let’s take a look at early 20s.
In the start of
2010, working holidays were quite generalized and because a lot of young
generation at that time,
had less experience of studying abroad so they put
more meaning into learning language in another country.
But nowadays, there are more people who have
experience studying abroad than before. So, they tend to approach with extended
1. Studying abroad and work experience, A goal to conquer
There are people who have hopes to become a real
overseas employer, not just a simple service job.
These people have been
dreaming of this moment through reading books and blog or watching related
YouTube channels and social media.
There are few students who also want to study abroad
with their own money.
They can study for less than 6 months and work for the
same period and can achieve both school fees and living expenses through this
working holiday experience.
So, they are looking forward to this golden
Those people who can say “I am a foreign worker! I
worked all my life there!”,
have more bigger dreams than others which is to
travel all around the world.
Actually, Canada might be hard to earn LOTS of
money in a year like in Australia,
but you can earn enough money to go around
South/North America continent.
This working holiday system is one of the best
contents that aims to “travel is ‘living’” trend that is booming between MZ
The best thing about early 20s working holiday is that
they are able to earn money and learn language at the same time in a foreign
And If you are able to go through a year of working holiday well,
will be the greatest big work experience you can have in your life that will
help you find work overseas and have more better opportunities.
So, for early 20s, their ambition and potential of
their own dreams are the goals for working holiday, not permanent residence.
2. Quickly before it’s too late!
If there are early 20s, there are also late 20-30s
ready for working holiday,
who are ready to experience the bittersweet reality
of overseas society and the achievements that can get from it when they are
already a bit mature.
There might be some people giving a stare during
working holiday and thinking how did they apply when they are in 30s?
As we mentioned before, working holidays are only able
to apply before 30 in global age, which is before when you turn 32 after your

For 20s-30s, most of them have experience of working

have experience of studying abroad and overseas

And some of them are looking for a place to get a job

spending days productively and making money for themselves, just like real
Also, some of them had to give up studying abroad because of their
busy Korea life.
So, they apply for working holidays to keep on their dreams of
studying language in another country.
Especially, these people already have experience
overseas and working holidays. So, they are looking forward to getting
Of course, there are some early 20s who are looking
forward to getting permanent residence as well,
after they find out how good it
is to live abroad and have academic goals.
Also, some of them are lucky enough to get support
from their own working place,
so they prepare for permanent residence just in
case they need it in the future,
which is a very clever decision.
But, late 20s-30s are seriously getting ready to
settle in Canada to start their second life there,
which is quite different
from early 20s who just want to get the permanent residence just in case.
Especially those who have husband or wives during

These days, there are actually people who are looking
for ways to get permanent residence with working holiday without considering
academic skills and experiences.
So, there are people who consider going to
Manitoba or Saskatchewan and get government immigration and not even thinking
about Vancouver or Toronto.
You might have seen some people who got permanent
residence after working in field such as food service or
Tim Hortons in
Manitoba or SK province as working holiday not as a skilled job,
or saw people
who succeed to get permanent residence for their serving skills and cooking
If you take a look at Manitoba or SK province government immigration, technically it is not so impossible to achieve, so those stories above are actually true.
But there are some facts that are possible to be
changed due to government immigration law change, so if you are looking forward
to achieving like this,
you should confirm again about MB state and SK province
government immigration and plan it with specialists.
Farming program is also booming these days for working
There is one customer who is in its late 20s and got
on board as a last one to working holiday during Covid-19 season.
He wanted to
achieve his dreams or studying abroad and immigration while living in Korea.
This customer also looked through farming program and
asked MURPHY for help about this program.
We still remember the first day that
customer came to us,
he said “I want to get permanent resident,
I want to study
the major I want and get a job that is related to it, but also want to save
money for school.
I feel like if I don’t get a permanent residence, there will
be some restriction,
I am still young, and I have visa for working holiday, so
I want to get a job that I am able to achieve permanent residence.
His goals were very specific that we are able to
remember it until now.
And eventually, that customer got job offer from farming
and went to Canada with their support.
Right now, he is working and gaining
experience from Canada farming program.
After 2 weeks of quarantine, he finished the interview
with her employer. We heard that he is doing so well there.
This customer is
now planning to challenge In-demand Skilled worker stream and gain 9 months of
Until then, MURPHY is always going to be there for you
and cheering you up for your goals.
Actually, for ON state in-demand stream, you can apply
for permanent residence after gaining 9 months of work experience among 12
months of working holiday.
Then you can get approve from state government
before your working holiday period ends, and extend your visa date, so you can
maintain your visa identity.
You can approach with this very possible plan.
So, if you applied for working holidays with higher
goals than others,
you can make a possible plan for yourself by targeting the
gap where no one has looked through and develop your possibilities until you
get permanent residence.
Recently a lot of people who go for working holidays
are focused on their final goals more than just experiencing overseas.
There are lots of different reasons for applicants to
apply for working holidays,
so if you want to start with working holiday visa,
and specify your goals a bit clearer,
you can definitely achieve it. MURPHY
will always help you guide your way through the end!
