CERIC Champions Graduate Research in Career Development

Watch this and upcoming issues of The Bulletin for cutting edge research in career development. These articles are the fruits of CERIC’s Graduate Student Engagment Program, a national initiative that promotes Canadian academic explorations in the field.

Participating students may be invited to: contribute to The Bulletin, present at Cannexus, or publish their work in the Canadian Journal of Career Development, CERIC’s partnership publication with Memorial University. Participants of the class of 2010/11 include the aforementioned Lauri Mills, Barbara Smith, researching mental health and unemployment, and Lynn Walsh, a specialist on career service provision to international students.

CERIC’s Graduate Student Award, presented to two graduate students annually, provides a free registration to Cannexus and $2000 to cover expenses to attend the conference. Eligibility is based on the submission of a one-page article on a career development topic.
