Introducing the Climate Career Blueprint

Career Blueprint introIntroducing our new Climate Career Blueprint. An interactive tool to help map out your transition to a career in the net-zero economy. 





50% of Canadian workers hope to change jobs in 2023. If that decision means a career change we know that transition can feel overwhelming. We hear the same questions over and over - how do I get from where I am now to where I want to be?

That is why we created the Climate Career Blueprint - a new interactive tool designed to help you visualize and map out your transition to a net-zero career. It’s the perfect way to get all those steps out from your brain and onto a page. The Blueprint is available at , but we have a few tips on using the tool before you launch into planning your next steps.

First - Enter your current status as your starting point. Whether this is your current occupation, education, or general status. Wherever you are now is an ideal place to start your journey. It also helps tailor the Blueprint to your current circumstances.

Next - browse our list of available jobs and training opportunities to see which ones interest you. Use the bookmark icon to save these to your customized list. You’ll be able to select from your saved jobs and training options within the Blueprint to choose the next steps and final goals for your transition.

Finally - Go back and add in the custom tasks along the way that will make your transition possible. Some examples include meeting with a Mentor, preparing for a job interview, updating your resume, or doing more research on certain industries or jobs. There is no task too small to record.

Unsure of which career path to choose? You can build multiple blueprints in order to explore the range of futures available to you. Sometimes it’s only after laying out all our options that we can decide which one suits us best.

Check out our new tool and build your blueprint today at. While you’re on the site, make sure to check out our new and improved homepage!

If you’re not sure where to start or want some help in building your blueprint - you can book a session with one of our Mentors to receive free, personalized guidance in outlining your journey to net-zero.

Since this is a new tool, we welcome your feedback and suggestions. If you have anything you want to share with us, fill out this form or email us at [email protected]

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
