Graduate students apply by March 31 to compete for GSEP Award
If you are a full-time graduate student whose academic focus is career development or a faculty member working with full-time grad students in career counselling or a related field, then you want to know about the CERIC Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP). Applications for 2020 are due by Tuesday, March 31.
CERIC encourages engagement of Canada’s full-time graduate students (Master or PhD level) whose academic research is in career development or a related field. Research areas such as Education, Sociology, Social Work, Counselling Psychology, Industrial/Organizational Psychology and Business with a focus on Human Resources or Organizational Behaviour are strongly encouraged to apply.
Through this program, graduate students will be introduced to CERIC and invited to:
- Compete for the GSEP Award, which provides free registration and up to $1,000 to cover expenses to attend and present a poster at the Cannexus National Career Development Conference;
- Join one of CERIC’s committees (one graduate student per year);
- Write for the CareerWise website, featuring the top career news and views, with a popular weekly newsletter curating the best of the site;
- Submit to the peer-reviewed Canadian Journal of Career Development, the pre-eminent open access academic journal dedicated to multi-sectoral career development in Canada and around the world;
- Connect with other graduate students through the GSEP Network, a dedicated LinkedIn group, or through the GSEP group on Facebook.
Interested in getting involved? Complete and submit this quick GSEP application form. If you are also interested in competing for the GSEP Award, please submit a one-page article on a career development-related topic of your choice (including a 60-word bio) to Marilyn Van Norman, Director, Research Initiatives, at firstname.lastname@example.org by the same March 31 deadline.
