Potential for career advancement, job growth, and salary.

Those are the three major criteria LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional networking site, used to determine the most promising jobs in Canada for 2017.

The data used to compile the list includes information drawn from the member profiles of more than 12 million Canadians. And since Forbes recently released the best employers in Canada for 2017, you might want to take your ambition to the next level by trying to combine these two lists to find the perfect job.

Of course, you might also want to update your LinkedIn profile before you start applying.

Here are the 20 most promising jobs in Canada for 2017:
