They buy and sell bonds and securities, administer loans, prepare credit reports, and invest funds for their clients.

Engineering managers top the list as well. They are responsible for research, design and production efforts at architecture companies, engineering firms, manufacturers and more. Engineering managers are also tasked to manage new product designs. To this, they have to identify and implement corrective changes, analyze the dependability, reliability, and mechanic aspects of different product lines.

Lawyers are in high demand in Canada, as ever. On average, lawyers study for four years at an undergraduate school and then three years in law school.
