CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:
Employment rose by 378,000 in September, bringing employment to within 720,000 of its pre-COVID February level. Among Canadians who worked most of their usual hours, the proportion working from home edged down in September, from 26.4% to 25.6%.
Financial information of universities for the 2018/2019 school year and projected impact of COVID–19 for 2020/2021
The pandemic has the potential to affect the revenues universities received from tuition. To assess the potential financial impact, five preliminary projection scenarios have been developed based on possible changes in enrolments.
In Canada, adult immigrants accounted for 44% of all individuals aged 25 to 64 with a university degree in a STEM field in 2016, compared with 24% in the United States. The two countries also differ in how STEM-educated immigrants are selected.
Among Canadians aged 20 to 24 and 25 to 29, the increase in NEET rates in the first two months of the pandemic was mostly because of a decrease in employment. When the highest level of education was examined, youth aged 25 to 29 with a trades diploma had the largest increase in NEET rates. This may be related to the fact that individuals with this level of education typically work in occupations with limited telework opportunities.
