Phil is a member of the Career Development Leadership Trust established in 2014 to extend Stu Conger’s legacy by stimulating new thinking, challenging the status quo and nurturing innovation and excellence in our field. He pioneered computer-based career information delivery in the late 1970s and is an international leader in the field to this day. In this webinar Phil will discuss the evolution of online career information delivery from the days when counsellors were concerned computers would replace them to the present when many count too heavily on online systems to take of the career exploration and planning elements of career development for them.

Key learning takeaways will include:

  • Online access to quality career, learning and labour market information is essential but insufficient.
  • Ultimately it’s the human connection that informs sound decisions and impacts behaviour.
  • Students at all levels should have a living portfolio, as should adults (i.e., LinkedIn).
  • Increasingly, entire communities (students, educators, parents, employers, community agencies) are getting engaged to help their citizens enjoy career success.
