4 reports that caught our eye the week of August 2, 2020

Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:

Potential earnings losses among high school and postsecondary graduates due to the COVID-19 economic downturn (Statistics Canada)

Students belonging to this year’s class of high school, college and bachelor’s degree graduates could lose from $23,000 to $44,000 over the next five years if this year’s annual youth unemployment rate reaches 28.0%. This is equivalent to $4,600 to $8,800 per year.

Sectors at Risk: The Impact of COVID-19 on Canadian Manufacturing (LMIC)

Prior to the pandemic, the manufacturing sector already faced workforce shortages and cost-control concerns. Now, as restrictions start to lift and the economy reopens, manufacturing firms need quality labour market information to develop recovery plans and processes, including identifying available resources and recruiting skilled workers.

Mapping graduate employability and career development in higher education research: a citation network analysis (Studies in Higher Education)

This research paper from Michael Healy, Sara Hammer and Peter McIlveen examines direct citation networks among 4,068 journal articles focused on graduate employability and career development and consider the disciplinary landscapes that they reveal. Their findings show that despite a clear alignment of research concerns and educational goals, there has been limited theoretical or practical exchange between the two fields.
