They check fire sprinklers, fire exits, and alarm systems to see if they are in good condition. About half of all building inspectors work for local governments. their medium salary is about 43k per year.
Landscape architects specialise in planning and designing open spaces. Their work can be found everywhere from inner-city squares to shopping centers, parks, coastline and countryside.

•Consumer diversity; and,
Technology affected the architecture mostly. Architects used to use drafting tables and traditional materials to design buildings and other structures. Now, the majority of them use computer-aided design (CAD) software.
Prospects and Barriers
Positive! Schools are producing graduates at a rate the industry can absorb.
With a number of baby boomers retiring in the coming years,while construction growth increases across Canada, demand for people in this profession is expected to keep growing.
One of my barriers is that I fail entering the university of Waterloo. Because, they give you great opportunities for work after second year and I don't want to miss that.
One of the most important values to me is money, In fact, this job is a well paid job and I can reach this value.
One of my intelligences is mathematical/logical intelligence which fits perfectly with this career.
My personality types are mostly artistic and realistic which is related to the career I choose
