Career Development Services Working Group

The entire community of other CDPs must have heard about this before I did today. I say that because apparently it has been around since 1983 and it's somehow a part of The Forum of Labour Market Ministers. (I learned about it from Tannis Goddard's blog e-Career Landing.)

The FLMM-CDSWG is a pan-Canadian organisation and they held a symposium in Winnepeg last October. One PowerPoint from that symposium looks particularly useful since it summarises the kinds of training that CDPs have, the kinds of services we perform, our aspirations and so forth.

Too bad that CDPs do not appear to be more prominent, as a group, at a gathering of this kind.
