National Career Development Day!

Today is National Career Development Day! The day was established by the National Career Development Association to advance career awareness.

This 2011 USA Today article offers some suggestions on how to advance your job prospects.

If you are considering a peacebuilding, development, humanitarian or conflict resolution related career, consider purchasing my book Peace Jobs: A Student’s Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace. I will be speaking on peacebuilding careers via Zoom at the University of Hawai’i/Manoa on November 24. Register here (it’s free!).

Make the most of your career and the many ways you can contribute to making the world a better place!

I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
