Local Employment Potential Information
|Location||Employment Potential||Release Date|
|Capitale-Nationale Region||(2 of 3 stars)||2012-10-03|
For the 2012-2014 period, job opportunities in the Capitale-Nationale region are expected to be fair for this occupation. Openings will arise mainly from the need to fill vacancies left by an aging workforce and from employee turnover.
In the Capitale-nationale region, work is mainly concentrated in the finance and insurance sectors.
Changes in employment for this occupation depend mainly on technological changes and the organization of banking services. In the 1990s, customer service practices changed. Clients have been encouraged to use electronic services. Cashier positions have been gradually transformed into representative or financial product advisor positions. Strong competition in the financial services sector has prompted many banks and credit unions to improve their customer service. This increase in focus on customer service in the competitive banking sector could increase the demand for these types of workers.
We also note that in the financial services sector, cashier positions are increasingly seen as entry-level positions. In the past, simply knowing how to handle money was enough to get you the job. Employers later added a Secondary School Diploma (SSD) as a basic requirement and now require a Diploma of Collegial Studies (DCS).
