The buzz is in the air at career services. And by buzz I mean the CA staff are getting ready for their interviews for the senior CA positions.
Yes, they are applying now for next september. Early you think, wrong I say. And our department is not alone in this. In fact, many on campus postions available for next September are being posted now or will be posted within the next couple of weeks.
So if your interested in working on campus, and I will tell you from experience that it is awesome, then I would start looking today for upcoming positions.
CareerZone will be your best bet to find the most variety of on campus positions available; however keep checking BUSU, Human Resources, and Recreation Services because they do not always post on our job posting board.
By keeping an eye out everyday, you will ensure that you will have enough time after a job has been posted to develop your application package (if you need one), fill out an experience works profile if they ask for this (do this via your my.brocku.ca), develop your tailored resume and cover letter, and finally come in so that we can have a look at it and help you to make it the best it can be.
The good thing is is that reading week is coming up. This means you will have some extra time to work on your resume so that it is prepared for that job you want to apply to when it comes available. It is difficult to sometimes prioritize finding a job over school, so use reading week to your advantage to job search and prepare. Or catch up on work ( unless your going away, to which case I say I envy you).
Moral of the story is keep an eye out now for opportunities for September because you might be too late if try and look for stuff then.
Have a good reading week!
