Career Readiness Engagement Policy Forum Pillar II - Providing Professional Career Advising

Wednesday December 8th, 2021
3:00pm - 4:30pm EST

To ensure that career development becomes a central priority, schools and post-secondary institutions need to appoint trained professionals to oversee this work.

These advisers must have specific career development knowledge and competencies.
