The recently released documentary Redirection: Movers, Shakers and Shifters, which examines career shift, transition and occupational change in later life, now has a new Companion Guide. Along with the film, the guide is intended to be used by career development professionals in their work with clients age 50 plus. Both film and guide are part of a national Redirection research project on Work and Later Life Career Development led by Dr Suzanne Cook of York University and funded by CERIC.

First released for sale a little over a decade ago as a DVD, the CERIC-funded “A Difference of Ability: Recruiting, Hiring and Employing People with Disabilities” documentary can now be viewed for free online. While awareness of this talent pool has grown, the employment rate for people with disabilities remains low. The employment rate of Canadians aged 25 to 64 with disabilities is 49%, compared with 79% for Canadians without a disability (Statistics Canada, 2012).
CERIC is partnering with the Career Development Association of Alberta (CDAA) to present a new 3-part webinar series: How to Leverage Hot Jobs to Your Client’s Advantage with Kristen Cumming starting May 24, 2017.
