Knowing yourself is important when deciding on a career. In addition, remaining open to learning more about other career options and possibilities that are available to you in the world around you is a great idea. Be aware of potential careers and what that career may entail. Most people can only describe and understand a handful of career choices, yet there are thousands of available careers. The point is not to limit yourself to one option you may have been considering or heard about, but to ponder alternatives that may cross your path in diverse environments, industries or related roles.

Career Cruising is an interactive career resource designed to help you explore various career options, research and plan your future education and training and much more. It also contains a section on trends for you to follow and understand the fast changing current labour market. It also features 450+ occupations, a career matchmaker quiz, and career portfolio and resume builder tools. The occupational profiles typically include job descriptions, working conditions, education and training, earnings,a list of related careers, information interviews of individuals in this career, professional associations, current job postings and links to other helpful resources. This will be a great resource for you to start your career research along with identifying the skills, qualifications, and characteristics employers are seeking within this industry and specific career. If you are a SFU student, you get free access to all the great information.
