2014 Career Professionals Survey Report

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.
