ABOUT JOB TALKS

Job Talks is a media initiative that shines a positive light on less popular, unknown or misunderstood careers through in-depth research and quality interviews with workers who are passionate about their jobs.

Job Talks originates from the belief that when Canadians love what they do for work, they become not only better employees and co-workers, but better citizens, family members, neighbours and friends.

The problem is that most Canadians feel that they're not doing what they were meant to do.

Job Talks aims to align the individual’s internal emotions, personality and values with the external benefits of being in the right kind of work. We will accomplish this by studying every industry of work with support from dedicated partners who share our goal of helping young people and career-seekers understand both themselves and the jobs they're signing up to do.
