The More You Learn, the More You Earn

Women reap an even bigger reward for more education. With a university degree, you can expect to earn the same as men—roughly $1.5 million in lifetime earnings—compared to $270,000 over your lifetime with just a high school diploma.


Getting your Grade 12 or GED is step one to a better life … but it’s not enough. You need post secondary education or training. Here’s another way to look at it. In an average week, a skilled tradesperson will earn $178 more than a high school dropout, someone with a college certificate or diploma will earn $218 more and a university grad will earn $558 more.

The Resume Challenge

The Resume Challenge

Personal information: your name, address, phone number and/or email address. Employers are not entitled to ask about your marital status, age, religion, cultural background or political affiliation.
Career Objective: helpful when you’re just starting out, but not essential. The objective statement sums up the type of position or career you are looking for.

Skills/Qualifications: also helpful when you’re just starting out, especially in a functional style resume.
Education: start with your most recent attainment level. If you’re not quite finished your program, include your expected graduation month/year.
