Glossary of Career Development

Revision for “Glossary of Career Development” created on September 13, 2016 @ 10:12:50

Glossary of Career Development
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The <a href="">Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC)</a> and the <a href="">Canadian Council for Career Development (CCCD)</a> have collaborated to launch the Glossary of Career Development. The glossary is primarily intended to serve as a resource to those working or studying in the field of career development, though it will also be of value to Canadians more broadly who are looking for definitions of terms in relation to their own careers. Given the richness and diversity of the field, it is also hoped that this glossary can move us towards a common vocabulary and shared understanding of career development. With that in mind, the glossary is presented as a living document in the form of a “wiki” to encourage its ongoing growth and development. Everyone in career development is invited to participate, to add new terms and to modify existing ones. As a starting point, many of the terms come from CERIC’s <a href=""><em>Career Development Practice in Canada: Perspectives, Principles, and Professionalism</em></a> textbook, the <a href=""><em>Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners</em></a>, housed by the CCCD, as well as a selection of primary reference sources.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_tabs color="orange" alignment="center" active_section="1"][vc_tta_section title="A"

(check the glossary for what that means), the resource will contribute to my ongoing learning about our exciting field and support me in my work with clients, and coaching interns and peer educators. Thank you for creating a “Made in Canada” resource for the standard terms in our field.” – Penny Freno, MA, HNCP, Career Education Manager, Simon Fraser University</blockquote> <blockquote>“Career Development is a fascinating and broad reaching profession with an abundance of theories, practices, and terms. I love the idea of having a central place where these ideas can be shared and where professionals can participate in shaping the language of the field.” – Paula Wischoff Yerama, Executive Director, Career Development Association of Alberta</blockquote> <blockquote>“I was very happy to hear that this Glossary was being published. It’s overdue, but now I think the career development community is ready for it [and is] interested in exploring the common ground and developing common definitions. Thanks to this glossary project we have made a giant step forward towards creating a common language that we all can benefit from using. I give out huge thanks to the people who created this document and also to those who funded its creation.” – Bryan Hiebert, Professor Emeritus of Education, University of Calgary, Adjunct Professor, Educational Psychology and Leadership Studies, University of Victoria</blockquote> [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
