Navigating Our New Reality: How COVID Changed Career Development

The role that career coaches is increasingly important as technology transforms the economy, upends sectors, and reshapes jobs. We know the crucial role career coaches play in the lives of job seekers, that’s why our coaching work focuses on equipping career coaches with skills, resources, and support needed to help their clients pursue better opportunities in a rapidly changing economy; and this year, Skillful is the proud sponsor of Colorado Career Development Association’s (CCDA) Fall Conference. This FREE three-day event will tackle important information for Colorado career coaches and counselors as they help their clients navigate these uncertain times.
