2017 APCDA Conference
Dr. Josephina Santamaria, mother of career development in the Philippines, will open the 2017 conference by looking at the progress that has been made in the Philippines and future directions.
In 1973, the Career Materials Development Project was funded in response to difficulties college graduates experienced when looking for first jobs, and Dr. Santamaria was selected as its director. She was recognized internationally for work in developing career guidance materials and became the president of the Asian Regional Association for Vocational and Educational Guidance (ARAVEG). In 1979, she helped to found the precursor of the Career Development Association of the Philippines and brought international experts in career development to the Philippines to provide training. In 1981, she opened a private practice to offer workshops and counseling for career changers, which she continues to do.
