Ask any child what he or she wants to be when they grow up, and the answer may surprise you. Adults may meet these responses with some level of skepticism, but it turns out more Canadians than ever are pursuing their dream jobs later in life.

According to a LinkedIn survey, 30 per cent of Canadians are currently employed in their childhood dream job or work in a field related to it. The top jobs for men included engineer, doctor, athlete and astronaut or pilot, while women aspired to be teachers, doctors and writers.

"The dream jobs we aspire to as children are a window into our passions and talents," said Nicole Williams, a career expert at LinkedIn. "Identifying and understanding those passions are key to improving our performance and enjoyment of the jobs we currently do, even if they aren't specific to the careers we dreamed of as kids."

Landing a dream job or something related to it is essential for success, as taking pleasure in work was named as the most important quality by a majority of global professionals. For example, those who enjoy helping others or learning about the medical field may be drawn to nursing, and they could find tremendous happiness in an industry they care about.

Students who are interested in pursuing healthcare careers can enroll in the Practical Nursing program at Vancouver Career College. For more information, fill out the form on the right.
