Innovative Career Services Interventions in Higher Education: Cases from Azerbaijan and Turkey

By Tuna Dagli and Gulnur Ismayil

Monday, November 25 / Tuesday, November 26

“Innovative ideas in service area don’t always mean to design from scratch, but to apply already known ideas, theories and practices in a new structure that best serve clients’ needs and expectations in their particular contexts. In this webinar, Gulnur and Tuna will present their innovative career interventions in their respective universities’ Career Development Centers. Gulnur will conduct a short throw-back into the history of Career Services and her University and reflect on advantages and disadvantages of best practices under the local context in the region. Whereas, Tuna will be talking about the “E.D.I.T. -Explore.Design.Improve.Transfer - Your Career” Framework that was developed by her and her team and how all the department’s strategy and practices were structured around this framework, improving the interest and participation of students in the center’s services and events.”
