In my presentations about competing for public sector jobs, one thing I talk about is the idea of landing the “dream job” even though it is way out of your current classification. That doesn’t mean you’re not qualified, it just means that it’ll be a challenge. Here’s an example:
- You work in administration at Health Canada (AS-02);
- Your dream job in agriculture comes up at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and it’s one level higher (AG-03).
