Building a common career language – from Alberta, Canada

If you’ve ever wondered about how to use the word “career” or what “career development” is really defined as, you now have a tool that can help.  I came across this whilst doing some work on careers recently and thought it was a useful summary to spark comments and ideas. Obviously this is from Canada and so we might feel some aspects should be changed for the UK, but it is food for thought. Particularly in light of the general confusion of “careers” and “careers advice” I’m quite aware that we can all use the same words to mean very different things.  I particularly like the 6 career development terms they have listed down the left hand side. Aspects such as “Community Economic Development” and “Labour Market” are going to be key aspects embedded within the phrase ‘careers’ in the future I feel, especially their values and benefits.
