Career Zone offers many Career Events to help you find employers and expand your network!
Where can I find Career Zone Events?
It’s simple! All you need to do is log onto your Career Zone portal: https://careerzone.brocku.ca. Once you have accessed your portal you can find all Career Events under the “Campus Career” or “Goodman Career” tabs in the Dashboard drop down menu, under “Events”. All events are listed monthly. You can click on each of the events for a description and register online (if necessary) as well.
How can I prepare for an upcoming Career Event?
Great question! It is always important to prepare for a Career Event beforehand to ensure that you can make the most of the event. Once you’ve registered for the event (if required), it is important to research and review the available job opportunities offered. You can also prepare a list of employers you would like to connect with so you can prepare some questions for each of those employers. Before attending the event, it is also important to dress professionally. Be sure to check out our Dress + Communication Etiquette resource to learn about dress and communication etiquette. Another great tip is to bring a note pad and pen with you during the event to record all your interactions and to jot down any important information.
Wow! That’s a lot to remember! Good thing we have all these resources on Career Zone in case you need a reminder! To access these resources, log onto your Career Zone portal > Student resources > Quick Tips.
What should I do during a Career Event?
Another great question! For in-person events, it is always a good idea to arrive early if possible, to become familiar with the event layout. If the event is online, be sure to keep your camera and mic on and maintain a visible presence. Before diving into questions about the available opportunities the employers have, you want to introduce yourself first so you can personally connect with the employers. Additionally, be sure to collect contact information to follow up after the event (e.g., business cards or LinkedIn information). Last, but not least, stay patient. It might take some time to connect with employers if the event is busy.!
Are there any upcoming Career Events?
Yes, there are! We have three very exciting Career Events coming up in October and November!
To better prepare for the event, you can attend virtual networking prep sessions, available on the Career Zone Campus Career Event calendar.
