Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are five reports that we found interesting this week:
The OECD Indicators of Talent Attractiveness score seven dimensions: quality of opportunities; income and tax; future prospects; family environment; skills environment; inclusiveness; and quality of life. The report finds the most attractive OECD countries for highly qualified workers are Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, New Zealand and Canada.
This report finds that in 2018, 2.9 million Canadians were self-employed, up from 1.2 million in 1976. For self-employed workers of all age groups, independence and freedom were paramount – particularly for those aged 55 or older.
Girl Guides of Canada partnered with Ipsos to ask teens, ages 12 to 18, about their summer work in 2018. Among the findings:
- 52% of girls who worked said they gained skills to help in a future career
- More than one in 10 girls (13%) experienced some form of sexual harassment or assault at work
The report recommends that the UK’s Careers Strategy is rolled out nationally, so that every secondary school is able to be part of a careers hub, training is available to all careers leaders and more young people have access to meaningful careers activities and encounters with employers.
The study examines: the most searched jobs and career industries in Canada, the top universities according to skills and industry, what the top Canadian employers are seeking in job candidates, which job sites Canadians are using the most and more.
