Labour Market Info: Is Your Future Career in Demand?

A frequent (and legitimate) concern most students have is the question of whether or not the career they hope to pursue after graduation is in high demand. Thankfully, there are a number of resources available for this type of research to be conducted.

Under the 'Labour Market and Salary Information' heading on the Occupational Research section of our website (which I discussed in my previous blog regarding the initiation of your career research) are a number of useful websites that have been specifically selected to assist you with researching industry specific labour markets. 'Working in Canada' is my personal favourite to use when helping students in the Career Centre and when conducting my own labour market research. Working in Canada gives region specific information regarding industry job creations and layoffs in order to help you construct an informed and viable career path for yourself. If your industry isn't doing well in a specific region in the country then try searching a different nearby region or even one on the other side of the Canada.

Taking the time to explore your career path early on will help you prepare for your job search after university. However, keep in mind that a career that isn't in high demand is not impossible to get into - there might just be more round-about ways of being promoted into or acquiring these types of positions.

Keep your career research fun and interesting for yourself. Research careers that you feel passionate about - you will naturally feel more willing to explore something that stimulates your mind then something you feel that you have to do. Finding a balance between passion and realism is important.

Good luck! Feel free to drop by our office if you have any problems with your research. :)
We are here to help Monday to Friday from 9AM to 4:30PM.
