Good news jobseekers!
A new report lists the hottest jobs for 2016, meaning these occupations are in demand and projected to see growth in the coming year.
The tipping point we fretted about for years is here. Employers need to plan how they will adapt, or perish.
Millennials—in sheer numbers, at least—became the largest cohort in the Canadian workforce last year.
Just more than 10 years ago, Henry Hems was on a one-day bus tour with his wife, Julie, when he noticed a brochure in the pouch in front of his seat advertising for shuttle drivers. “My better half said, ‘Hey, here’s a job for you.’ So I went in and made an appointment, and they hired me on the spot.”
Women left Canada's labour force in record numbers last year. Who are they and why did they leave?
Over 80,000 women left Canada's labour force in 2014, bringing their labour force participation rate down to 61.6 per cent from 62.2 per cent in 2013.
Many factors are shaping the year ahead for businesses and their employees across Canada. Falling oil prices are expected to continue for some time; consumers and government will carry even deeper debt loads and Generation Z will begin entering the job market while Boomerang Boomers continue to fill the void in various skilled trades.
Wondering which occupations will be showing the most growth over the next few years? It depends on where you live (well, sort of. It’s a fairly safe bet that you probably shouldn’t go into newspaper printing or the postal service, no matter what your location.
