Here's why a quarter of the world's best-performing CEOs studied engineering

How to choose the engineering job that's right for you
The Engineer
Engineering is a very broad church. Some engineers spend their days in an office designing aircraft or writing code for innovative software startups. Others work on the building sites of skyscrapers or on oilrigs in the middle of the sea. Others toil away in labs building robots that could help change the way we live forever. Unless your degree is in a very specific discipline, it's likely your education will have given you a huge range of options to consider. Even if you've trained in something like civil or aerospace engineering, your skills will be in demand by a wide variety of companies, big and small, in different sectors.

The 15-hour workweek: Canada's part-time problem
The Globe and Mail
For years, Eileen Hasselhoff enjoyed her steady job as a cashier at a Toronto fast-food restaurant. She didn't earn a lot, typically minimum wage, but at least she had regular hours that let her plan her life and save a little for retirement. That all changed a few years ago. Suddenly her hours were cut, her schedule thrown into turmoil and her income slashed. Now sometimes, she gets 15 hours a week.
