Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four that we found interesting this week:
Do Youth from Lower- and Higher-income Families Benefit Equally from Postsecondary Education? (Statistics Canada)
This study found that completing a post-secondary education is associated with a larger increase in earnings among youth from lower-income families than youth from higher-income families. This was the case for those with a college diploma as well as for university bachelor’s degree program graduates.
Toward a systems framework for technology and the future of work (Labour Market Information Council)
This paper proposes elements of a comprehensive systems framework for modelling the future of work. In addition to labour substitution, the model includes changes to products and services, business models and industry ecosystems.
The divisions between online and storefront are increasingly blurred as Canadian shoppers are thinking and shopping in multiple dimensions. This changing face in retail trade has created a challenging consequence for the sector’s skills supply and needs, as well as workforce development strategies.
This report examines career guidance in Ireland amid changing patterns of work and the need for reskilling in the context of lifelong learning. The report’s recommendations, though directed toward Irish career guidance, may also resonate in other international contexts.
