Webinar: Linking Career Theory to Practice

Join our panel of career specialists who will be discussing their work in linking career theory to their career practice.

Introducing a number of career theories to the conversation, discussion will focus on the importance of contextualising career theory to practice as well as the changing world of work, lifelong learning, career decision-making and development, and career guidance to the broader community. 

With a panel of CDAA members who as career professionals are working within a range of community / industry areas and age groups, this webinar provides a fantastic opportunity to hear about the importance of understanding how career theory strengthens practical career support services.

This now annual CDAA webinar will be facilitated by QLD Division President Jennifer Luke who will lead the session with an overview of the selected career theories.
