In this webinar, we presented a Career Development model (Self Reflection, Self Clarity, Visioning, Goal Setting & Planning, Implementing & Adapting) where hope is the centre point for all facets of the career development process. We also shared some quantitative and qualitative research, funded by CERIC, that we recently completed with university and college students in Canada and the US. In assessing levels of hope, we used the Hope-Centred Career Inventory (HCCI) as one of our measures and assessed one’s level of hopefulness related to student engagement, academic performance and vocational identity. We also explored through interviews the experiences of students who scored high on hope, but were also facing major challenges in their lives.
