Career Developments Magazine
Attention NCDA Members: Career Developments - members-only quarterly magazine now online!
The Career Developments magazine and the journal, the Career Development Quarterly, are a few of the many NCDA member benefits. In response to requests for “going green,” the print magazine is now available to all NCDA Members in a digital format, just like the CDQ!
Due to COVID-19 interruptions, the Summer 2020 is ONLY available electronically. Members can login and go to Members Only Resources to access the issue.
We understand that many members enjoy holding the printed magazine in their hands after receiving it their mailbox. The print format is still available. Those in the United States may opt to receive the print version, at no additional charge. Those from outside of the US may elect to receive a print copy for $15 annually. This price covers the ever increasing cost of postage.
Please make your selection during your membership renewal process by using the membership form or accessing your profile under Members Only Resources.
Questions about this change may be directed to email@example.com. We hope you enjoy the new digital option as your membership benefit!
"Rural Career Development"
Rural areas across the United States are home to different cultures, people, businesses, and infrastructure, and are far from geographically or economically homogenous. However, since these rural areas are less densely populated and less connected to major centers of employment, they share common workforce development challenges.
In addition to our focus on rural workforce development, we have once again collaborated with CERIC to create a joint issue. This special issue will include columns that will also appear CERIC’s Careering magazine. Articles that appear in both magazines are noted at the end of each column.
When we began preparing for this issue in late December, the idea of a pandemic, stay at home orders, social distancing, and an unemployment rate we have not seen since the 1940’s was not on anyone’s radar. As a result, the articles in this issue are not meant to address the impact of COVID-19, but instead were prepared to continue to provide NCDA members with useful information on an important topic, specifically workforce development.
Have you noticed some important changes to the magazine? Starting with the Winter 2019 issue, the magazine, the departments changed. Now we will not only offer our themed focus and feature article, but will include seven regular columns including:
- Thought Leader Insights
- Ethics in a Nutshell
- On the Web
- The Marketplace
- Higher Education Highlights
- Career Developments Bulletin
- School Counselors
Our goal is to continue to provide timely and relevant information including insights on and analysis of current career counseling and development practice, theory, and resources.
