CERIC has announced the recipients of this year’s Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP) Award, providing support for four graduate students to attend the Cannexus20 National Career Development Conference, January 27-29, 2020 in Ottawa.

  • Anais Thibault Landry, PhD Candidate, Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Université du Québec à Montréal

The award, presented annually to select full-time graduate students studying career counselling or career development, provides free registration to Cannexus and $1,000 to cover expenses to attend the conference. The Cannexus conference promotes the exchange of information and explores innovative approaches in the areas of career counselling and career and workforce development.

Eligibility for the award is based on participation in CERIC’s Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP) and submission of a one-page article on a career development topic for publication through CERIC’s GSEP Corner.

GSEP encourages the engagement of Canada’s full-time graduate students whose academic focus is in career development and/or a related field.
