Helping others achieve their career and life goals, and helping employers make the most of talent and potential, is the important work that career professionals do. If you are a student who is studying career development or thinking about transitioning into the field, it is essential to understand the many ways career professionals serve their communities. Join career leaders from community employment agencies, post-secondary career centres and private sector firms for a discussion on the current labour market, the shifting landscape of virtual and hybrid work, and what skillsets you need to move into different sectors of the career development profession.

Looking to network? The latter portion of this session will be an open Q&A with our panellists. Come ready with questions or join the conversation on camera/in the chat to engage with our experienced sector leaders.
