November marks the special month when NCDA celebrates National Career Development Month through a series of career-related activities. We are excited to host the National Poetry and Art Contest highlighting “Career Development Across the World: Making Connections and Increasing Access to Impact the Global Labor Market!” We urge all members to get involved and submit entries for this national contest!
New this year is an exciting global collaboration, sponsored by the Inter-Agency Working Group on Career Guidance entitled, Global Careers Month. NCDA has joined with the Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF) and the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC), as North American partners, to sponsor a Global Career Social Media Campaign! We have included an information invitation below from our three organizations:
I am reaching out to you as influential individuals and organizations in the career development field, hoping you’ll be willing to Amplify and participate in the first-ever Global Career Month. For the North American contribution to Global Career Month, CCDF, CERIC and the NCDA are co-hosting a social media campaign called Career Development Changes Everything this November.
The goal of the #Amplifier2022 campaign is to flood the internet with posts that shine a spotlight on the meaning, impact and value of career development. We hope this raises awareness among the public and deepens our field’s sense of unity and pride.
Where you come in ...
Please share the following materials (in both English and French) with your networks:
