We encourage students to consider their post-secondary plan as their first step on a career path. Indeed, the economic and technological outlooks tell us that many of the jobs these students will end up in have not yet been created. We talk with students about how they can identify and start to hone the employment skills that will make them valuable employees (such as those identified by the World Economic Forum), both while at the school and at university. We encourage them to seek post-secondary institutions that are a good fit for their individual attributes as a learner, program interests, finances and preferred living environment. We encourage them to select a university where they will thrive as students and as young adults embarking on a new life path.
