Watch for Results of CERIC’s Survey of Career Service Professionals
CERIC is pleased to announce that findings from its Survey of Career Service Professionals will be presented at the Cannexus12 conference in Ottawa. Over 1,000 members of the career service professional community completed the survey. Please join us at the Cannexus Connections Luncheon on January 24, 2012 as Mario Gravelle, Learning and Innovation Analyst at The Counselling Foundation of Canada, offers an overview of the findings, including demographics of the field, research and professional development issues as well as career competency and mobility. CERIC looks forward to sharing other findings from this research via The Bulletin, ContactPoint and OrientAction throughout 2012!











New Study to Look at How Youth Develop Their Career Interests

A new research project funded by CERIC will help to determine the factors that affect the development of career interests among adolescents and young adults, especially those deemed to be “at-risk”. The project will identify the family, social and environmental factors that influence how children regard future careers and post-secondary education. Research is being undertaken in partnership with the University of Manitoba, University of Winnipeg and Career Trek Inc. Results of the study, Career Exploration: An Application of Social Cognitive Career Theory with At-Risk Adolescents and Young Adults, are expected to be available in 2013.
