Career Cruising is a handy career guidance e-resource you can use to research careers, find job postings in Canada, learn how to conduct an effective work search or prepare a resume. It also has career profiles and links to relevant Canadian college and university programs. Students can use it when thinking about their future or to make decisions about a career path based on their abilities, interests and values.

You can get the most from Career Cruising by first creating a My Plan.


Whether you’re in grade 5 or grade 7 or grade 9, you can start thinking about your career path and plotting how to attain your career goals. Even if you’re unsure of what you want to do, you can take the Career Matchmaker test where you answer a series of questions, giving one of 5 answers.


The results will match you with careers that suit the answers you’ve given. The best matches are ranked first.


Exploring your assessments will help you to determine if you have the skills necessary for the above careers that matched your interests. By answering more questions, you can even find out how you learn and retain information and get tips on how to improve your study habits. You’ll know what your learning style is and be able to study effectively, making school a more valuable experience.


However, if you’re more interested in what types of careers you can enter into; start searching alphabetically for careers according to what subjects you are currently studying. For instance, if, in your Home Economics class, you find that you’ve got a talent for sewing and design, search for ‘fashion designer’. You will see an overview of the career, including job description, working conditions, education, earnings, career path and what it’s like if you choose to be a fashion designer.


You can never get bored with Career Cruising and it’s never too early to start thinking about what you want to be.
