These days when you pull into a service station it's not just a matter of fueling up. You can shop for groceries, get some fast food, do your banking, you name it. It's all about marketing to the customer, and service stations are designed with that in mind. Working behind the scenes is Julie Jolicoeur, a project manager for Imperial Oil. Julie manages service station construction projects from the development process through to completed construction.

Julie makes more than $55,000 a year. Her project management skills could get her a job in almost any other industry.
