CSI Blog

I and the whole staff at work attended a training last week on a "narrative" method of career counselling led by Mark Franklin, the practice leader of a company called Career Cycles.  It's inspired me to write a bit about narrative therapy in general, especially as it applies to career development.

Dave's Diary: Dear High School Class of 2011...

Dave's Diary

Hi.  It's me, Dave - I was one of the smiley, energetic people handing out popcorn last night when you came up to visit SFU for our open house, "Info Eve."  Congratulations, by the way!  It's a pretty cool experience to be offered acceptance to any university, let alone the top Canadian comprehensive school as ranked by Macleans.  So, you've got good reason to feel proud of yourselves.  I really could see that on a lot of your and your parents' faces last night.  Way to go!

Dave’s Diary: University, or Masquerade Ball?

CSI Blog

We’ve been talking about it at work in regards to job interviews, but it’s clear that the construct applies to a lot more than just that.  But it’s a slippery thing to try to define.  When applied to people, the best we can really do is provide a list of near-synonyms: genuine, real, veritable.  None of which are all that helpful.

Green Careers: Choosing Work for a Sustainable Future

CSI Blog

Most people today are probably familiar with the term “going green”. We are provided with encouragement to recycle at home and often on the job. The grocery store will put your groceries in reusable bags, and may even offer small discounts for doing so. Maybe you’ve even tried new environmentally friendly light bulbs or drive a new hybrid car. Careers now are going green, too.

Dave’s Diary: What’s an Entrepreneur?

Career Exploration

Everyone’s had a business idea at some point in their lives. For most people, including me, they’re just passing fancies – momentary visions of grandiosity that persist for a few moments before reality comes crashing back in.  Yes, I’ve had my share of these. Allow me to indulge you for a moment with one of my, er… entrepreneurial ideas.

Peeriodical: Take a Holistic Approach to Your Education

Career Peers

I am sure you have heard of the concept of taking a holistic approach to health.  I first learned about this concept when I took an elective course in Kinesiology at SFU during my undergraduate degree. A holistic approach to health examines the physical, social, emotional and mental needs of a person to determine one’s overall wellness.
