The 2014 Career Professionals Survey Report provides insight into the work and life of career practitioners who support the Canadian labour market. In particular, we compare and contrast the work/life of SELF-EMPLOYED Career Professionals versus those who are EMPLOYED by organizations within the sector. By learning about our colleagues, we can gain a new understanding and better perspective, so that we can come together, value, and support each other. By understanding the benefits and challenges of self-employment and employment, we can all make more informed career and business decisions.
