"Career Development Connections has been the go-to website for myself and colleagues, as it allows us to view all available job opportunities in our field without having to navigate through numerous sites. I want to keep this great resource going for us."- Jacki Thoreson, Former Administrator of Career Development Connections
On October 2016, Denise Lloyd of Engaged HR relinquished the website and Facebook page to Jacki. Denise started this initiative because she kept hearing from people that they needed a place to be connected; a place to go to find out what is going on and a place to go that would help them be pro-active in their career planning. During the business transformation period, the industry was difficult to navigate and people were challenged with finding a new place to practice their profession. Which is really what people want - they want to do their work with the clients they have dedicated their careers to. Career Development Connections has been able to assist everyone in the career development community - Career Practitioners, Program Managers, Executive Directors, Administrators, Financial Managers (you name it and that job has been posted!) with postings that have changed the way we look at the industry and have opened new avenues of opportunity.
"Career Development Connections was created to connect people, to share information and to provide service where service is needed. "See a need and fill it". I know that many organizations and individuals have benefited greatly from this service and I thank everyone for their ongoing support."
