    • May 24, 10am - 1pm: Guiding Principles of Career Development: Career Work in Action by Riz Ibrahim
      This immersive and interactive session will put you in touch with first principles as we explore the Guiding Principles of Career Development developed by CERIC. This session will consider each of the eight Guiding Principles that define career development today. We will examine how each applies to your practice now and what each means within the context of an increasingly dynamic global labour market and the fluid nature of “career.”
    • May 27, 10am - 1pm: 5 Keys to Helping People Start Careers by Elisabeth Sanders-Park
      Most people can get a job without much help from us. Right now, the world's employers are begging for talent so even people with barriers can get hired... but is it enough?! Everyone deserves to do work that makes sense for them. This interactive session led by Elisabeth Sanders-Park (master virtual trainer and author of 'No One Is Unemployable' and 'The 6 Reasons You'll Get the Job.') will build your competence and confidence as you help people start careers that work for them.
