Students’ Pursuit of STEM Careers

How can a career professional identify students with potential for a STEM Career nearly a decade before they pursue it?

By Vandana Chopra

Monday, February 12/Tuesday, February 13

Worldwide, students pursuing STEM-centric academic courses tend to leave and shift their focus on other subjects across various transition points. Recent evidence indicates that students who are misfit for STEM education have gone through depression and resorted to attempting and many a times committing suicide. Thus, it is essential to seek ways through which STEM pipeline can be developed which has a high probability to continue and thrive in STEM careers. Dr. Gambhir has built a psychological framework that helps career professionals to identify students with potential for having STEM career nearly a decade before they pursue it. The framework has been extensively used with school and university students and helped them in their pursuit of the STEM professions.

The Use of Metaphors in Career Development

by Norm Amundson

Monday, March 12/Tuesday, March 13

Story telling is an integral part of career development. A key component within stories are the metaphors being used by clients, counsellors and coaches. Metaphors encourage imagination, add clarity, and help to build understanding. In this presentation, he will be expanding on many of the themes (and metaphors) included in his book “Metaphor Making” and will be exploring the dynamics of metaphors and analogical reasoning. He also will be sharing some practical career development exercises that build upon metaphors and lead to greater self-awareness, clarity, and action. This session will be of interest to a broad range of career educators and practitioners.
