CERIC is creating a new bilingual resource for the 9 out of 10 private sector businesses in Canada that are small- and medium-sized enterprises seeking to keep and develop talent. Entitled Retain and Gain: Career Management for Small Business, the concise Playbook is intended for owners and managers of SMEs to use as a practical career management tool with their employees.
Finishing your graduate thesis? Currently working on it? Or have you graduated already but never published your work? Feel intimidated about publishing a full article? The Canadian Journal of Career Development (CJCD) is publishing a special issue in 2017 that focuses only on research-in-brief of current and past graduate students.
CERIC will be offering a free webinar, Redirection Project: Career Development and Job Shifts for the 50+ on Thursday, January 12, 2017 (12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET). A national CERIC-funded research initiative, Dr Suzanne Cook led the Redirection Project and will present her findings on later life career development among adults age 50 and older who shifted into second or third careers, as well as the experiences of career practitioners working with older adults.
With a goal of bringing greater clarity and consistency to our national conversations about career development, CERIC has developed a set of “Guiding Principles of Career Development.” These Guiding Principles reflect multiple voices at CERIC and underpin its vision to increase the economic and social wealth of Canadians through career counselling and career education. They are intended as a starting point to inform discussions with clients, employers, funders, policy-makers and families – and come as the country marks Canada Career Month.
