We envision a future in which individuals can access meaningful career services throughout their lifespan. We are committed to creating inspiring content, training practitioners, and improving services in a modern way.

What is Modern Career Learning?

Learning is at the core of successful career development with clients.

Modern Career Learning embraces the dynamic mix between Why, What, How, and Where clients learn. It celebrates that there is more than one way to learn. For you to have success with your clients, this mix needs to inform the objectives of a client service, design of career development content, methods used by a career practitioner, and the multi-modal learning environment you blend together.
