66.7CERIC is today launching a new publication to help the more than 4 in 5 small- and medium-sized enterprises who worry about engaging and developing the talent to grow their businesses. Entitled Retain and Gain: Career Management for Small Business, this action-oriented Playbook enables small business owners and entrepreneurs to use career management as a strategic lever for stronger company performance.
CERIC is partnering with BC Career Development Association to present a special 3-part webinar series – Career Launch Reboot: New Approaches & Tech-Savvy Tools to Help Millennials Avoid the Underemployment Trap starting April 11, 2017.
New CERIC-funded research shows that deploying specific hope-centred career interventions can positively influence the actions of unemployed adult jobseekers with low hope and high barriers. In the study, 70% of clients reported that after participating in the interventions they were able to develop new perspectives on job search, craft better career plans, and be more confident in their decision-making.
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.
CERIC will be hosting a free documentary preview screening of Redirection: Movers, Shakers and Shifters on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 in Toronto. Funded by CERIC, the Redirection: Work and Later Life Career Development project is a study focused on older workers, and now culminates in a film and forthcoming companion guide.
