Welcome to our career blog...

The Career Key's mission is to help people make the best career, college major, and self-employed choices. In this career blog, we share practical tips about:

- Making science-based career decisions throughout your life,
- Choosing a college major, training, or instructional program,
Choosing career clusters, fields or career pathways, and
- Deciding whether being self-employed is right for you.

The Career Key's Vice President, Juliet Wehr Jones, J.D., GCDF with input from Career Key author Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, discuss these topics with seriousness and a touch of humor.

Korean Career Key Meeting

Just before the Christmas holiday, we were fortunate enough to meet up with the Korean Career Key co-author Dr. Wan-suk Gim. From left to right is Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, his wife Jeanine Wehr Jones, Dr. Junksik Kim (front center), Dr. Wan-suk Gim, his wife Jinsoo Jun, and me (Juliet Wehr Jones).

Dr. Wan-suk Gim, who established the Korean Career Key website, is the Director of the Ajou University Psychological Counseling Center in South Korea.

Dr. Kim is a former student of Dr. Gim's who is about to become a tenured professor in organizational psychology at Western Washington University.

Dr. Gim's Korean Career Key website has received several million visitors since its inception a few years ago. The website received government endorsement and has been well-received, as the number of visitors indicate. We discussed future collaboration and the progress to date in making The Career Key available to Koreans. What a pleasure meeting our colleagues in person! South Korea is one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world, having one of the top rankings as the most internet "connected" populations. This is even more remarkable considering the country was destroyed by war not too long ago. Interest in high-quality career guidance is high so we look forward to continued success in South Korea.
