Hello,

Just wondering

1. What is climbing the career ladder like in Canada compared to the US?

2. How easy is it for someone to make a complete career change at a later age such as 30.s 40.s or even 50s

3. What is the business career world like?

Thanks

You are asking very generic questions where is hard to reply without making broad generalizations as well.

On average (painting with a very wide brush) the US tend to offer many more career opportunities than Canada (business, science & technology, medical field), salaries in the private sector tend to be higher (sometimes much higher) and the US corporate culture generally tend to be be more meritocratic.

Complete career change is hard the older you are regardless of the country, in the US is probably a bit more easy simply because of the huge economy and more opportunities.

Personally I did the move from Canada to the US and I would never go back but your mileage may vary.....

That may be true but I would also bet that older Canadians are more open to career change and are more willing to pay the opportunity cost (education). It is encouraged here.
