What is Shop for Jobs?

School is officially underway! Yay! Starting a new term is always so exciting. When I was a student here at Brock, there was nothing that got me into the school spirit than coming to campus, meeting up with friends, lining up for hours to get my bus pass and buying super expensive textbooks.

Talking about expensive textbooks, many students struggle with their finances while at university. A great way to lift some of the burden is to get a part time job while completing your studies. To help students find work, Career Services is once again holding its annual Shop For Jobs event at The Pen Centre in St. Catharines.

If you are looking for a job in food services, retail or customer service, this event is for you. We have over 15 stores at The Pen Centre who are setting up tables outside of their stores on Tuesday September 13th from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m., eager to interview Brock students for available positions. All you have to do is visit the information table where Sam and I will check you in, bring your resume and any questions you may have, wear your business casual clothes and go wow some employers!

We strongly encourage you to visit the Resource Centre this week to get your resume reviewed by a Career Assistant before attending the event. We want all attendees to be successful in finding work and this is just one way to ensure that employers take you seriously. Another would be practising your interview skills on Interview Stream so no questions leaves you stumped. Quick tips and a cool Prezi about the event can be found on the Career Services website.

Good luck everyone!
