    By Dr. Claire Ouyang, APCDA Macau Representative

    December 13-14, 2019, People Achievement Consulting (PAC) held its 3rd Annual International Career Development Conference in Shanghai.

    As the strategic partner of NCDA since 2011, PAC offers the Facilitating Career Development training program and credentialing services in China and beyond. This year’s conference discussed opportunities and challenges for the career development industry in China. From an industrial perspective, keynote speakers elaborated the global trend of talent development and challenges caused by Artificial Intelligence. From the educational perspective, discussions focused on the crucial role of career education in national educational development strategies and needs for career education and guidance in school settings as responds to the college entrance exam policy reformation in Mainland China. Front-line practitioners also shared successful experience and reflections during breakout sessions of the two-day conference followed by workshops. Attendees demonstrated their aspiration to elevate their practical abilities and skills.

    APCDA was represented at this year’s conference by the Keynote Speaker Prof. Rebecca Dedmond and her in-depth observations on the global trend of educational reformation. Past President and Research Committee Chair Prof. Hsiu-Lan (Shelley) Tien, Macao Representative Dr. Claire Ouyang, and Taiwan Representative Anne Chen also attended the conference.

    Prof. Hsiu-Lan Tien received the Outstanding Chinese Career Development Professional Award for her continuous devotion to nurturing and inspiring career scholars and practitioners in China and beyond. This award aims to honor and pass down an individual’s profound academic influence in the field of career development on Chinese cultural society. Prof. Tien shared her insights with the audience about the transforming yet solid role of career counselors nowadays after receiving this award.  She also provided a workshop introducing updated educational policies and trends which will be implemented in career curriculum design in Taiwan after the conference. Those sharing received warm responses from attendees.

    Below are comments from members about how the fires in Australia affected their lives

    • I am not close to the fires but they are like nothing we have seen to date in Oz.
    • I am in Melbourne 100's of miles from fires so only very smoky conditions. here.  Fingers crossed for people in the fire areas - today is predicted to be the worst day yet.
    • We live in a rather densely populated inner suburb of Melbourne, only 8 kms to the city centre so we are safe, but even here we have a lot of smoke haze from the many fires burning in our state as well as in the other states. The high temperatures and strong winds all work against the fire fighting efforts. We can only hope that a lasting cool change gets here and helps. 
    • I work at the Wollongong campus. Most of the staff in our careers teams are fine but many, many across the uni are being impacted.  Several of our careers staff from the southern campuses, though, have been heavily affected - families evacuated , one staff member’s mum has lost her home, another was the only house in the street than survived, another has several people staying with her because they’ve been evacuated.... It’s huge and totally devastating for them.  All our southern campuses have been closed until 13th Jan, and then the uni will reassess the situation.  And today is due to be another hot day so there’s a high level of concern still for many. 
    • It is indeed a disastrous catastrophe, especially in Victoria and New South Wales. We are still at the early stages of summer, so this might go on for a while.
    • We live on the Northern Beaches area of Sydney, which thankfully though surrounded by national parks has not been subject to any bushfires.  However, the air quality due to the smoke is the worst I have ever experienced in Sydney over such a sustained period.  About 30 people have been killed already and around 13 million hectares has been burnt out.  I have heard reports that 40% of the koala population in New South Wales has been killed. 
    • It is very distressing for the whole nation, until we get some solid falls of rain across the continent, which does not seem imminent.
    • My parents and brother were in the thick of it.  He was evacuated from his house in Long Beach and was able to care for my parents in Caseys Beach just a few kilometers from the devastating fires on the south coast of NSW.  Thankfully they are fine but food and petrol is virtually non existent and power is off a lot of the time and mobile contact patchy.  Fingers crossed for no more of the horrendous weather conditions.
