For secondary school principals, senior management, career advisers, classroom teachers, parents, and those working to support the career development of young people.

CDANZ and Careers New Zealand in partnership with The University of Auckland Business School & Student Development and Engagement present:

Title: Implications of Digital Literacy in Higher Education.

For tertiary educators, career development practitioners, tertiary students, graduate recruiters. In this interactive workshop Professor Hooley will expand on a presentation recently delivered in Australia on how the growth of the internet has changed almost everything about the way individuals' careers work. He will argue that the internet provides a new context for career building and that we need to learn new skills and rethink some of our old career management skills in order to make the most of this environment. The workshop will consider how the role of career professionals is changed by this new environment. Key learnings will include increased understanding about the implications of the many dangers in this new environment, but also the many opportunities. This workshop will address both the good, the bad (and the ugly) of online career building. Professor Hooley has published a useful practical guide on this subject which attendees may find helpful.

Tuesday 14 April , 9 am to 4.30 pm 

CDANZ and The University of Auckland Business School & Student Development and Engagement present:

Title: Career Development: Evidence, Evaluation, Image

This full day’s workshop is for career practitioners, consultants and HR practitioners working in the field of career development who have an appreciation of lifelong career development.

Morning Session Title: Satisfaction Guaranteed?

Professor Hooley will discuss how attending to the evidence and evaluating what we do can help to ensure that our services are effective and our clients are satisfied. He will suggest that we need to be reflecting on our practice to answer the questions “are we doing things right?” and “are we doing the right things?” Professor Hooley has published a summary of the evidence base in career development which attendees may find helpful to consult.

 Afternoon Session Title: You’ve got the Look 

There is a lot of research that suggests that how people look makes a difference to how successful in their careers. Putting it simply pretty, well-dressed and charming people tend to get recruited and promoted more quickly than those who are less blessed. But, what should career professionals do about this fact? Do we have a duty to encourage people to enhance their career image or are we being complicit with a set of unfair (and often sexist) assumptions about what makes an ideal employee. In this session Professor Hooley will present a summary of the evidence in this field and facilitate a discussion about how careers professionals can best deal with this.

Date: Wednesday 15 April, 7.30am to 9.30am

CDANZ and Careers New Zealand in partnership with AUT's NZ Work Research Institute present:

Topic: THE POLICY CONVERSATION – integrating policies that work.

In this breakfast seminar Professor Hooley will address what policies underpin effective lifelong career development for citizens. He will argue that policies in this area should be evidence based and briefly outline the key evidence that exists in the field. Key learnings will include increased understanding of the international context, and implications for the New Zealand context. For background reading see:

 Professor Hooley wrote in The Guardian - “All that is required is for voters and politicians to wake up to the fact that many of their concerns are irretrievably bound up with people's careers. Once this is realised the idea of investing in career development becomes as logical and essential as the idea of investing in public education or health.” http://careers.theguardian.com/careers-blog/investing-career-development-government-agenda He will be a keynote speaker at the ICCDPP (International Centre for Career Development and Public Policy) speaking on the same topic, “Integrated Policies: Creating Systems that Work “. The ICCDPP conference theme is; “Building the Talent Pipeline and Providing Youth with Hope for the Future,” which focuses on the challenges facing governments, employers, and communities to ensure young people have economically viable futures.
