This profile is part of a series in support of Take Our Kids to Work Day on November 3, 2021. Launched in 1994, Take Our Kids to Work Day is the most recognized career exploration event in Canada. With the pandemic continuing to change how students learn, the 27th annual Take Our Kids to Work Day presented by RBC Future Launch will be back with a virtually delivered look at the world of work for Grade 9 students across Canada.
 
This year’s theme – You Belong Here! – will expose young minds, as they enter their first year of high school, to a wide range of careers reflecting the full diversity of students, interests and the future world of work.

Job title:

Director, Higher Education Practice

In high school, I would have been voted most likely to:

Become a film critic

Skills I rely on most in my role:

Critical thinking and problem solving - with the ability to communicate it!

Q: How can I know what job I want to pursue in the future?

Jobs will continue to change due to the impact of technology so it is important that students keep an open mind and explore as many opportunities as you can through work experience opportunities. Talk to people who have jobs now and ask them what they like about their job. Think about where your interests and hobbies are and think about what jobs might align with these.

Trying to find a job that meets your passion might be challenging but you are more likely to enjoy it when you get there. Finally, focus on learning things that will help you take on any job, like communications, problem solving, working with others and technology.
