This November, we celebrated Manitoba Career and Workforce Development Month. Career practitioners are an integral part of career development, as they help people understand Manitoba industries and career pathways. In order to celebrate this important work, we focused on sharing resources on our social media platforms that assist career practitioners and their clients. Don’t feel like scrolling through Twitter or Facebook? Enjoy this start-to-finish list of every resource from the past month. We hope that these links are useful to you or a client as you continue your career development work in the new year.
