Introducing 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 www.climatecareerportal.com/blueprint , 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.
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]
