Eighteen months into a disruptive and often devastating pandemic, we are in a moment that feels ripe for reflection. This issue of CERIC’s Careering magazine both examines where we have been – the changes the field has made, by choice or by necessity – and where career development needs to go in Canada. The strategies, case studies and ideas this issue’s authors present reflect an inherent belief that we can do better than just going back to “normal.” 

There’s something for everyone in this issue – available exclusively online at ceric.ca/careering – with articles on career education in K-12 and post-secondary; re-envisioning approaches to workforce development; hybrid career services; Indigenous career counselling; inclusive workplaces; measuring and communicating the value of career development; and more. 

Articles include:
