If you are undecided about your career or if you would like to start success planning for your chosen occupation.
THIS IS THE PLACE TO START!
The information provided in these program areas will give students ideas as to some typical careers/jobs that are associated with your major. Each program area outlines related job titles, typical employers, necessary skills as well as links to relevant associations for that degree or diploma.
This by no means implies that these jobs are the only options you have; these careers are just samples of what you can do. Remember that you can do any career you want with your degree; follow your interests and values and your options will be limitless.
Did you know...
Most jobs are not advertised? Over 80% of job seekers find employment through the hidden job market.
Most of these "hidden" jobs can be found by making cold calls to potential employers, networking and conducting information interviews?
There are over 2500 careers in Canada?
What are you waiting for? There's a world of opportunity for you to discover!
