Future Employment Forecast

We’ve already talked a bit about employment trends in Canada. Everyone wants to know what the hottest industries are and what positions are going to be in demand. Even more so when you are considering investing in careers training, and want to get the best value for your time and effort.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll help you with your career choice by taking a look at every faculty and program at Academy of Learning College Toronto and showing how it fits with employment opportunities in Canada. We’ll look at everything, from the trends for 2013 to long-term predictions for the coming years, with tips on how you can use this knowledge to grow your career!

Of course, many sorts of training lead to universally portable careers.  For example, whether the industry is oil and gas extraction or insurance, every company needs administrative and managerial staff. Your business courses in Toronto are going to help you find a job, regardless of whether your employer makes widgets or pies. Knowing where the hot industries are is also about knowing where best to take the skills that you have earned.

You also need to keep up with trends and changes within a particular field. For example in your accounting courses, make sure you know how to use the latest business software and are up to date with financial regulations for things like payroll. In all our courses, we balance our curriculum based on both long standing, industry essential fundamentals and upcoming trends.

You will also want to know where the growth potential is in each field. For example, healthcare is booming, but training that prepares you to assist the elderly, as a personal support worker (psw) for instance, is in particularly high demand and only expected to grow as the Canadian population ages. People who take psw courses now will be investing in a career with great long-term prospects.

What do you think the big trends in employment are going to be? Did you consider industry forecasts when you chose your program?
