The field and practice of career counseling and development 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 keeps us motivated and what drains us as we work with individuals to help them actualize their career goals and plans?

Attend this webinar where seminal ideas that have shaped the field of career development over the past 100 years will be discussed.  Prior to meeting on January 21, participants will receive the Monograph to Celebrate the Centennial of the National Career Development Association, will be assigned a brief 1-page excerpt from the monograph, and will briefly present the related idea/concept so that others may respond.

The basic question we will all be addressing together is, “Do these ideas that have shaped our field over the last 100 years still matter today?  If not, what ideas should replace them, and are we as career professionals prepared to take that on? What do we need to keep doing?    Do differently?”

Facilitated by Career Development Specialist Amy Mazur, this webinar promises to provide those in attendance the opportunity to learn and grow together, to generate new ideas together, and to take steps to transform personal practice.
