CERIC encourages the engagement of Canada’s full-time graduate students whose academic focus is in career development and/or related fields through the Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP). Faculty members are asked to play a role in identifying appropriate graduate students.
Through the GSEP, graduate students will be introduced to CERIC and its programs and invited to:
- Compete for the CERIC 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications and articles for 2019 are due March 29, 2019.
Note: If you are already a GSEP member, you automatically remain in the program as long as you are a full-time student. Also, if you have not won the GSEP Award in the past, you are welcome to compete for it again by submitting another article.
