Supporting the Celebration of 100 years of Career Guidance

To end this week's focus on "big picture" political issues affecting our nation's career choices, I'd like to publicize, celebrating 100 years of career guidance and education. This consortium of organizations, including the National Career Development Association, recently issued a "Statement of Beliefs" listing important goals in the business of helping people choosing careers. I quote two beliefs that we support with the resources at Career Key's public service websites:
"1. Every student and adult shall have access to useful information and effective guidance in setting personal and career goals that align with their unique interests, talents, strengths, aspirations, and values.
2. Every student graduates high school with lifelong career decision making and management skills that are necessary to succeed in postsecondary education, training, and the workplace."
The next step is to give people the practical, affordable, and science-based tools to make these happen, which is part of Career Key's mission. We're proud to be a part of this effort to enrich people's working lives.
