Gloria’s Answer

Hi Jordan,

There are a large variety of jobs out there in the world. You may hear some of them referred to as white collar versus blue collar. This is usually a difference in the work environment - working in an office versus working outside of an office, often in very physical jobs like construction. That is an oversimplification, but is sometimes a division people to use to decide a way forward. You should consider jobs that allow you to use your natural skills and talents. I often tell people to begin with their own hobbies. What would you do even if you didn't get paid for it? Many people feel good about using what they know or what they are interested in when working. However, if you do not know what you like, I would say start working or job shadow people who do work. Observe them doing their jobs and ask them what they like about them. Another way to learn about different types of jobs is to volunteer with various organizations. You can do something new while learning how to do various types of jobs.

Simeon’s Answer

If you want job options that you could qualify for relatively quickly, I would recommend looking at trade jobs such as HVAC tech, electrician, welder, or plumber. There are a lot of great job offerings in these industries and you can earn a decent wage without having to go through university to get there.

Ed’s Answer

Luke's answer is spot on. You don't need to go with the flow (whatever is trending today may not be trending tomorrow). Think of basic needs that will always be required - learn it, do it, earn money and then decide where to go next.

Some evergreen areas
- Electrical engineering - every building needs electricity
- Gastronomy (Chef) - everyone needs food
- Hairdressing - easy to start, everyone needs a hair cut

Luke’s Answer

Hi Jordan, there's an endless list of potential job options but another way to look at this topic is to seek your internal interests and pursue future roles that align with your passions and interests. Looking ahead, roles that incorporate IT (computer science, data science, statistics, etc.) are expected to continue being in demand, but so too will hundreds of other different roles. Each role will have different requirements ranging from years of education needed, expected salary, job availability based on geographic location, but it's important to do some independence research and to speak to professionals or students in different paths to determine where your direction should start. Best of luck!

Luke recommends the following next steps:

Seek respected online sites to learn more about different job industries.
Seek internally to discover what your interests are, and to then search for roles that match such interests.
Understand the requirements for each role you are interested in (i.e. some may require 4 years of college and 3-4 years of graduate school, which will have significant cost implications that may make you reconsider such route).

Ray’s Answer

Start with looking at the courses that intrigue you the most and explore what careers are tied to those courses. It's always best to be enthusiastic about something that you are curious about and have a passion to explore and achieve.
