This workshop is designed for individuals who have been practicing career professionals for 7+ years, and who have an interest in engaging with career development concepts and colleagues, asking deep questions about our work and our profession, and building on current knowledge and experience.

The field and practice of career development (counseling and coaching) has changed over the years…or has it? What are some of the constants and what are some of the variables that make our work rewarding and challenging? What do we need to attend to and understand to keep the profession relevant as we work with individuals to help them actualize their career goals and plans in the 21st century?

Attend this webinar where participants will have the opportunity to engage deeply with each other and be exposed to seminal ideas that have shaped the field of career development over the past 100 years, along with current ideas that are deeply influencing the way we work and think about work.

Facilitated by Career Development Specialist Amy Mazur, participants will engage with these ideas and generate solutions on how we move forward in the field, taking all that we need with us to ensure the individuals we serve are being provided with what they need, and that the profession grows and thrives.

This webinar promises to provide those in attendance with the opportunity to learn and grow together, to generate new ideas together, and to take steps to transform both the career development field and personal practice.
