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 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 an article to the peer-reviewed Canadian Journal of Career Development;
- Connect with other graduate students through the GSEP Network, a dedicated LinkedIn group, or through the GSEP group on Facebook.
Interested in getting involved? Submission deadline for 2021 is March 31, 2021.
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.
Any questions? Email Riz Ibrahim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do people say about being part of GSEP?
Where are they now
We reached out to some past GSEP participants to find out, “where are they now”? We wanted to know how their career journeys started, where they’ve gone since finishing graduate school, and the role that GSEP played along the way.
