"Understanding the world of work means that you learn something about trends in the job market. It means you get some idea of how this market has changed in recent years as we've moved into what some people call the new economy. Finally, it's important to learn how to research different careers and find out what they're all about. That way you're not guessing about what they involve or relying on somebody else's opinion. Instead, you base your planning on solid information." - Career Counselling at Centennial
