The Leading Edge: A Career Development Workshop Series for Young Adults. Facilitator Guide.
Canadian Career Development Foundation, Ottawa (Ontario).
This booklet is designed to be used by facilitators of the Canadian Career Development Foundation's "The Leading Edge: A Career Development Workshop Series for Young Adults." The guide provides information, including objectives of the workshops and lists of required materials, needed in order to facilitate an introductory session as well as the six workshops in the series. Each section contains samples of material suitable for transparencies to be used in the workshops. The six workshops are: "Setting the Stage: The Changing World of Work," designed to help clarify the world of work and apply that understanding to personal career development; "Recognizing Your Leading Edge," designed to initiate a shift from traditional job search to self-marketing; "Powerful Resume Writing," which maximizes the effectiveness of this key component of the work search; "Pro-Active Work Search Tools," which aims to build skills supporting nontraditional work search techniques such as information interviewing, networking, and proposal writing; "Your Leading Edge in Action," which focuses interview skills and introduces professional portfolios; and "Consolidation: Planning the Next Steps of the Journey," which integrates information into a personally meaningful sense of career development. The program goals are to help participants "get the big picture" in focus and determine how this relates to them personally and professionally. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/AVC)
