Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week:

Labour Market Information Needs of Different Sociodemographic Groups (LMIC)

LMIC asked over 15,000 Canadians about how they use labour market information and what they find lacking in the current system. Among the findings:

  • Younger Canadians think labour market information is more difficult to find and understand than their elders
  • People living in rural areas are looking for the same types of information as city dwellers
  • Women appear to use a broader range of labour market information sources than men
Highly Educated Immigrants: Economic Contributions and Implications for Public Policy (Fraser Institute)

This report finds that Canada is successful at welcoming educated immigrants every year, but when it comes to the most educated immigrants around the world — those with PhDs — the United States remains a more attractive destination.

Student Opportunity Insights: Rose-Colored Glasses for Near and Recent Grads (CENGAGE)

This report finds that while students were fairly bullish about their chances of finding work out of school, the degree of their optimism varied by major, with business students the most confident.
