Canada Career Month – November 2018

Career Professionals of Canada is proud to promote Canada Career Month (CCM) with three exciting new initiatives in November…Here’s how you can get ready for CCM!

The 2018 CCM theme for November 2018 is “I Know I Can Because”.

Throughout the month, Canadians will be invited to share their skills on social media using the hashtag #iknowicanbecause. We also want Canadians to know that if they are having difficulty articulating their skills our field ready to help. You can learn more about how to get involved in CCM at careermonth.ca.

Also, be sure to visit our 2018 CCM theme page to make a skills pledge, become a champion, and much more!

In addition to posting about your skills and visiting careermonth.ca, there are lots of ways to get involved this year such as:

Sponsorship: 3CD is seeking sponsors for Canada Career Month to help us promote career development across Canada. We are still seeking sponsors, so if you know anyone that might be interested in this opportunity, please contact rob@impactcanada.ca

Events: Having events throughout the month of November to let Canadians know that career development matters is critical to the success of Canada Career Month. We invite you to promote the month by hosting an event and co-branding the event with the Canada Career Month logo. A few ideas to consider…

  • Host a skill demonstration marathon.
  • Organize a reverse career fair where employers are invited to learn about the skills of local community members.
  • Invite local community members to talk about the skills they use at work through a human library event.
  • Take part in a local career fair, or host your own!
  • Post videos about what career development means to you, your clients, or your local community using the hashtag #iknowicanbecause.

Media: To help you profile your event in the media, we’ve attached a media outreach guide and a social media guide to support you.

Really, the sky is the limit! You can also ask others in your network to host or attend events in their communities. Use this poster and soft-launch letter to let your networks know about planning events for CCM. If you plan on hosting an event, please let us know about it so that we can post it on the career month web site. Contact events@careermonth.ca with your details.

Whether you are sponsoring, hosting an event, or just spreading the word about CCM 2018, please use the Career Month hashtag (#careermonth) as much as possible in your social media feeds throughout November (and in the lead up to Canada #careermonth).
