In-Demand Careers

Since New Brunswick is facing labour shortages across many sectors, there is Labour Market Information (LMI) on job opportunities for specific in-demand careers. NBJobs’ Careers in Demand gives you an overview of the occupations available in healthcare, education, information technology, forestry, food production, and skilled trades, including duties, training requirements, job openings, and salaries.

If you’d like more detailed information on occupations and job opportunities in New Brunswick, you can find resources here that will help you make good decisions about the kind of education or training you need as well as what workplace best fits your lifestyle.

Hiring Demand Bulletins

You can get a snapshot of the latest jobs available, what skills are in demand, and what companies are currently looking for candidates in the Hiring Demand Bulletins. These bulletins are prepared each month by the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour (PETL) based on online job ads from across the internet.
