Study in Canada: 7 Tips to Canadian Career & Education Success

If you’d like to study in Canada, start by looking at who you are, your career interests and options, then choose the right college/university major to make your dream career and life in Canada.
  1. Learn More About Yourself.  Take valid career interest assessments, like Career Key Canada or the Strong Interest Inventory. Unfortunately, none of the Canadian government websites offer a valid career test and neither do any of the “free career test” websites.  But don’t just take assessments; try the other recommended activities too. 
  2. Identify Your Skills. Find out what skills you enjoy using the most, what's marketable, and how to choose a career that uses them.
  3. Learn About Canadian Occupations and Careers. 
  4. Learn More about the Canadian Jobs that Interest You. 
  5. Match Your Personality to Canadian Majors and Educational Programs. See how Holland’s Theory can help you relate your career and education interests to the real world of work. Our new e-Book, "Match Up! Your Personality to College Majors" contains over 1,400+ Canadian and U.S. college/university majors to explore - organized by Holland's 6 personality types. Download the free "Choosing a College Major Based on Your Personality" report from our home page.  It explains how the personality major match is related to college success.
