Any real adult knows how much of a struggle it can be to find a job, especially in today's economy. As a university student, there's nothing more frustrating to hear than "you'll never find a job in your field." Unfortunately though, sometimes it's the sad reality. Some fields are a lot more practical than others, but at the end of the day, I still think it's important to pursue what you love.

Even if you don't manage to find a job in your field straight after graduation, don't fret too much. There's plenty of jobs in other fields that you're likely more than qualified for, as long as you're hard-working, detail-orientated, a strong communicator, and determined.

Another key tip for succeeding throughout your job hunt is confidence; you'll never find a job if you don't know your worth, but if you can walk into an interview with total confidence and belief that you belong there, you may just totally change your interviewers perspective on you. Ensure that you do a lot of research about the company prior to your interview, and that you're well-educated and well-informed on any important company policies and beliefs.

No matter if you're fresh out of school with a shiny new degree, or have been on the hunt for a job for awhile, we've searched out some of the best jobs available in Alberta right now by salary. Check them out, and if you're qualified, send in an application; you may just find your dream job.
