Hello Everyone!

2 things to share with you...first up...Canada Career Month....

The Canadian Council for Career Development (3CD) is organizing the first ever Canada Career Month in November. The theme is “Career Development Matters and Everyone has a Role to Play.” Your organization is invited to get involved by hosting an event in our community.

Each week has a focus that will help you plan events, activities and workshops:

Week 1-- Individuals and their community: What are individuals in your community doing to help Canadians find meaningful work?
Week 2-- Employers of all sizes: How can you engage employers to get involved and be part of this national discussion?
Week 3 -- Education from K-12 to Postsecondary: What are your schools, communities and employers doing to help youth with career planning?
Week 4 -- Government and agencies: What can governments, at all levels, do to ensure meaningful work for all Canadians?

Suggested Activities
• Host an event - a job fair, networking session, workshop, or trade show
• Add a panel or keynote to your AGM or conference programming
• Take part in local media appearances
• Devote a PD Day to Career Development within your organization
• Write an article on career management in your newsletter or blog
• Post a video with your stories about what’s happening in your community for Canada Career Month

Next update from our friends at Road to Employment:
We are so excited to invite you to be a part of our exclusive soft launch of a Brand New and Improved Docuseries! Below you will find a link to watch one of our favourite episodes - Episode 4: Applying Online vs Networking.

At this point you may be wondering, "Why are we launching a new series?"

After releasing Part 2 of the original docuseries we received lots of great feedback. People loved it! But one consistent piece of advice we heard a lot was that our videos were a little too long! So, instead of continuing on to create Part 3 we took the summer of 2016 to recreate and revamp a brand new series of 6-8 mini episodes
  • Our messages and advice are now 1001% clearer! 
  • We added captivating animations and skits that are guaranteed to hold your attention.
  • And we are also developing a workbook to go along with the series in order to create the True Careers 101 for Canadian Youth!
What did you think? 

We plan to do a public release of the series this November, in alignment with Canada Career Month. So for now we are only sharing the series with our closest and most valued supporters. That said, we are looking to speak and share this with directors of career centers.
