Free Webinar: Guiding Young People in the Decade After High School – November 26, 2014 with Cathy Campbell, Author

FREE CERIC Anniversary Webinar

As a part of the continuing celebrations of CERIC’s 10th anniversary in 2014, we are pleased to present a series of FREE webinars with some of our project partners, offering updates and insights in key areas of career development research.

Wednesday, November 26, 2014
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET

Content for this webinar is drawn from the forthcoming revisions to the popular The Decade After High School: A Professional’s Guide. The new book outlines in more detail the context in which young people’s career journeys are unfolding and the strategies they use to find a career-related place. It also introduces techniques that can help career professionals integrate traditional career counselling practice with chaos-oriented approaches that emphasize that most young people’s career journeys are characterized by change and unpredictability.

You will learn:

  • What research tells us about the challenges young people face in the decade after high school graduation
  • The five strategies that young people use to find satisfying work and what internal and external factors impact on which they use
  • 7 career crafting techniques that career professionals can use to normalize change and to help young people be proactive in the face of uncertainty
