Career Cruising partners with the Ontario Skills Passport

Career Cruising is excited to announce a new partnership with the Ontario Skills Passport (OSP) that will make it easier for learners and job seekers in Ontario to understand the Essential Skills and work habits employers are looking for and see how Essential Skills are used in their occupations of interest.

Users can now link directly between almost 350 of Career Cruising’s career profiles and the related OSP Occupational Profiles which detail how Essential Skills are used on the job and offer labour market information related to that occupation. These links can be found on the “Other Resources” pages of relevant career profiles on the Career Cruising site, with more links becoming available as the number of occupations included in the OSP grows.

“Career Cruising has always strived to bring their users the most up-to-date, relevant career information possible. The partnership with the Ontario Skills Passport allows us to once again ensure that both students and job seekers have access to important information, tools and resources to help them expand their career awareness and inform their decision making.” Lynn Sadlowski, Educational Sales Consultant, Career Cruising.
