Case Study: Employment fit and friction in a rural creative enterprise

The Fall 2020 issue of Careering will be on the theme of “Career Superpowers.” We are looking for article pitches representing a wide range of interpretations on this theme, including but not limited to: building resilience, the value of reflection in chaotic times, career management skills, leveraging an opportunities mindset, supporting employee career development, growth careers, navigating disruptors, succession planning, value of a career mindset and career mastery. We are seeking both big-picture ideas and practical strategies that are sensitive to the current moment but will continue to be relevant to readers going forward. New contributors are welcome, and can submit in English, French or both languages. Please send a brief description of your idea to Editor Lindsay Purchase, lindsay@ceric.ca, no later than June 30. Article deadlines will be set for this summer in conjunction with writers.
