IFSE Institute, the educational arm of The Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC), announced April 12 the launch of Career Pathways, an interactive tool to help industry professionals explore various job roles in financial services.

“The financial services sector in Canada continues to grow and offer outstanding job opportunities,” said Christina Ashmore, managing director of IFSE Institute. “Our goal is to provide our students with valuable tools and resources, whether they’re just starting out or looking to advance in their careers.”

Four categories

The platform is organized into four categories: starting your career, advice channel, operations/back office, and compliance. Users can click through the tool to reveal a variety of potential roles. Each role provides a job description, list of key skills or attributes, estimated salary range, and recommended courses. IFSE has also created videos to highlight some of the most popular careers in the industry.
