The Career Development Carnival 2014 Calendar

The Career Development Carnival is entering its third year of highlighting world-wide career experts’ advice and tips. Last year we decided to have a few theme months and it worked so well that we will be doing it again in 2014.

Hannah Morgan and I met this week to talk about the success of the Career Development Carnival for 2012 (thanks to all of you!) and how we might infuse some fun and variety into 2013. We’ll be introducing a career related theme for four of the months.
