Deirdre Pickerell

My work, over 20+ years in career development, human resources, and adult education, has been incredibly varied but always with the underlying message of the importance of a good career fit . . . getting the right people into the right jobs at the right time. Essentially, my career is focused on helping individuals find work that allows them to thrive and helping organizations understand the importance of supporting employees' career goals.My initial doctoral research focused on career management as a key driver of employee engagement. Those explorations, and my work in that area, led to the development of the Career Engagement model. Co-authored with Roberta Neault, this model conceptualizes career engagement as the alignment of challenging, stimulating work with a matching level of capacity (e.g., access to the proper skills and education; social support; self-care). Read more at: My doctoral dissertation explored the model as well as the career engagement of Canadian Career Development Practitioners (CDPs).The model has since been introduced at presentations locally, nationally, and internationally and has resonated with all. Next steps include extending my doctoral research into New Zealand and Australia. Have a question or comment about career development or engagement? Please don't hesitate to connect via email or LinkedIn. I'd love to hear from you.
