Career Developments Magazine
Career Developments, the NCDA magazine for members-only, is a themed publication offering articles that balance a broad vision with practical applications. Published four times per year, each issue offers a focused article on a select theme, a feature article on a prominent NCDA event, specific content for five departments, and four regular columns. The Publication Schedule and Editorial Team is listed below, or click here for complete Submission Guidelines.
The Spring 2014 issue is focused on a growing trend in the workforce — Portfolio Careers. Unlike traditional employment, typically a part-time or full-time job with one employer, a portfolio career is a unique combination of opportunities with multiple employers that, in combination, make up part-time or full-time employment.
In this issue, our contributors address the pros and cons of this type of work, provide useful resources for working with clients interested in transitioning to this mode of employment, and offer insight into how to prepare students, career transitioners, and even career development professionals for a portfolio career.
