The 2019 Survey of Career Service Professionals is a national survey run by CERIC, a charitable organization that advances career development in Canada. With the start of Canada Career Month, the survey is now open!
Your responses will help CERIC, and the field at large, to better understand your interests and challenges, as well as your professional development and information needs.
This comprehensive survey is only run once every four years – and presents a critical opportunity to take a snapshot of the profession and how it has changed over time. It was previously run in 2011 and 2015. In 2015, over 1,000 practitioners completed the survey and provided rich data that helped to inform CERIC’s work – from the research projects we fund to the learning we offer you.
This survey will take approximately 25-30 minutes to complete. Your answers will be confidential and only be shared in aggregate. Preliminary findings will be released at the Cannexus20 National Career Development Conference (January 27–29, 2020) and shared throughout the year.
For taking the time to complete the survey, you can enter into a draw to win one of the following prizes: •1 of 5 copies of the Career Theories and Models at Work book •1 of 3 free registrations to a paid CERIC webinar series •Grand prize: 1 complimentary registration to Cannexus20
National Initiative: Supporting Canadians to Navigate Learning and Work
We invite you to be part of an exciting initiative being undertaken by the Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF), in partnership with the Canadian Council for Career Development (3CD). This project began on Sept. 10, 2019 and will finish in September 2021, giving our field an exceptional window of opportunity to tale some big strides forward.
This initiative, “Supporting Canadians to Navigate Learning and Work” is a comprehensive project, involving career development professionals (CDPs), their employers, training providers, and provincial professional associations.
The S&Gs Working Group encouragies everyone to register and get involved. They’re currently working on a new CDP Competency Framework, and your input is needed.
