Plan Your Career

“I want to change careers. What jobs can I apply for with my current background?”


One quick way to find a similar career is to look at your current occupation’s profile. 

Here’s how:

  • Search for your occupation in Occupations in Alberta.
  • Click or tap on the occupation name.
  • Scroll down to the Related Occupational Profiles section.
  • Choose a few profiles to learn more about. For each profile:
    • Compare the tasks in its Duties section to your current occupation.
    • Compare the Top 10 Skills Employers Are Looking For in its Skills & Abilities section to your current occupation. Note that some profiles may not have a list of Top 10 Skills.

If you can’t find anything suitable, or if you’d like to do a more thorough career exploration, use these guides. They’ll help you figure out which direction to go next in your career journey:

Identify what you can offer to employers. You’ll need to be able to tell employers what value you can add to their organization. Work through How to List Your Skills and Accomplishments.
