CERIC and its Executive Director Riz Ibrahim invite you to attend a free networking breakfast meeting to learn more about two key career theories, meet some of the BC-based authors and discuss how to apply their theories in your practice.

This meeting is also a great opportunity to network with other professional peers as well as to learn more about programs and services from CERIC that will be of value to you.

This is an inclusive event and we want to hear from all who have a stake in matters related to career and workforce development, including employers, career practitioners and educators.


Career Engagement Model with authors Dr Roberta Neault and Dr Deirdre Pickerell

Deirdre Pickerell- PictureRoberta-Neault- PictureRoberta Neault and Deirdre Pickerell will present their Career Engagement Model. The model situates maximum engagement to occur at the intersection of challenge and capacity. Too much challenge for the available capacity can be overwhelming; while too little challenge leaves people feeling underutilized. This research brings together two groups who have typically worked in silos: career practitioners and HR professionals, whose integrated supports can benefit both individuals and organizations. The model has even broader application, including with high school students, foreign-trained professionals and retirees.

Key learnings:

      • How to identify the signs of career disengagement
      • The individual and the organizational responsibility for career engagement
      • How to engage and re-engage jobseekers and employees


Career Development Framework with author Kris Magnusson

Kriss Magnusson- PictureKris Magnusson, Dean of the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, will present his Framework to Organize Career Development Concepts and Practices (co-developed with Dave Redekopp). Kris will describe the four broad client challenges integrated in this framework and how it can help practitioners situate all ideas into categories known to be in service of the client’s career development – skills to navigate, the motivation to do so, and understanding of a possible “place” in the world, and the ability to manifest the whole self through a variety of life roles.

Key learnings:

      • Description of the four client challenges
      • How to respond to them
      • Practical examples showing how the framework can guide the practitioner’s thinking about a client’s concern
