Celebrating One Hundred YearsCentennial Virtual Issue

The National Career Development Association (NCDA) will celebrate its centennial with a Global Career Development Conference (July 8 - 10, 2013) at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston, Massachussetts. We hope that you will join NCDA colleagues to share experiences from the past and to reflect on the next century of career development. To mark the centennial, NCDA is sharing this “virtual special issue” of its journal, The Career Development Quarterly. NCDA has published a journal for 100 years. The articles in this virtual issue, listed by rank according to available records, are the eight most cited articles published by The Career Development Quarterly and its predecessors including The Vocational Guidance Quarterly and Occupations. These articles provide a sample of the contributions made by NCDA members to the profession of career counseling and the science of vocational psychology.

The Career Development Quarterly continues to provide information and inspiration to career counselors, and researchers as well specialists who work in human resource departments and government agencies. The eight articles in this virtual special issue reflect the scope of NCDA Members’ interests--including career theories, work adjustment, counseling techniques, special populations, social justice, and public policy. The articles also represent many, but not all, of the issues of concern to NCDA and its members. Finally, the articles exemplify the standards of excellence maintained by the NCDA Editors, Editorial Board Members, and Board of Trustees.
