Employability profiles database

We are your partners in return-to-work planning. It is important that you have access to the occupational information we use every day to find return-to-work solutions.

The employability profiles database is a catalogue of occupations in our province that provides an overview of jobs you may be interested in pursuing as you prepare to find employment. It contains profiles of jobs in seven major areas (and their respective vicinities) in Alberta.

Each profile includes:

  • a description of job duties
  • the physical demands for each job (if required)
  • experience and qualifications needed for the job
  • educational requirements
  • workplace environment

Updating profiles

The employability profiles are prepared by an independent research firm to ensure that the information is unbiased. We monitor each profile to ensure it is accurate so that workers have the best information. As long as the nature of the job remains the same, the employability profile is considered valid. Salary information attached to each job profile is specific to the seven major areas and is considered current for one year from the date it is published. Salary information is revised on an annual basis.

New profiles

New profiles are added as they are researched.
