Let’s Talk Careers Competition

Thursday, September 24th, 2020
ChatterHighSkills Canada and Let’s Talk Science have joined together to provide an opportunity for students to virtually explore a wide array of occupations and post-secondary programs of study with the fourth annual Let’s Talk Careers: Canada’s Most Informed School Competition. This career exploration opportunity also includes two national competitions (Fall 2020: October 26 to December 4 and Spring 2021: April 12 to May 21). Once registered, students will answer a ten-question quiz each day to earn points towards their personal leaderboards and the school wide totals. These quizzes encourage them to research and explore thousands of higher education and career options that they may not have been exposed to any other way. The schools with the highest ranking at the end of each round will win a cash prize, and the students who answered the most questions right in the time period will also win personal cash bursaries! For more information about this career exploration opportunity, please go to
