How do I find information on careers?

Finding updated information about potential careers your teenager may be interested in is easy, thanks to the the Government of Alberta. The Alberta Learning Information System (ALIS) will provide you with information needed to help make a decision about careers and the training necessary to achieve employment in a profession that interests your teenager. This website contains information on career planning, scholarships, occupations, post-secondary programs and the application process.  This site is well worth taking the time to investigate.  ALIS focuses on Alberta institutions and job information. 

The section that we wish to draw your attention to is called occupational profiles. This section describes duties, working conditions, personality traits, educational requirements, salary, and employment and advancement opportunities of  a wide variety of occupations.

and it will take you to the occupational information pages in the ALIS website.

Once you click on the link and enter the website, choose the letter that corresponds with the occupation you want to investigate or you can type in the occupation.  As you scroll through the webpage you have chosen, be sure to click on any links you find.  Sometimes there are videos or suggestions of related professions.
