So what do we have available for Humanities students in the Career Centre?
What Can You do With Your Degree?: Our number one resource that I recommend for all Humanities students is our Degree Exploration Guides (DEGs). Each program has their own DEG which lists Career Options, Professional Associations, and Job Search websites as well as other information pertaining to what students can do with their degrees after they have graduated from Brock. To find a copy of your program's degree exploration guide check out our website here and if you would like a hard copy of your DEG stop by the resource center! We are currently in the process of updating and expanding on the information found within our DEGs so be sure to check back in September once the new versions are available to students!
Constructing Your Resume: A new resource that we have available for students is our Resume Samples for Humanities Programs binder. This binder contains resume samples that are specific to the various programs within the Faculty of Humanities. You can view the hard copy of the binder in the Career Resource Center or you can view the resume samples online on Career Zone under the 'Resume Samples' tab.
Books, Books, Books!: If you are a lover of books (which, as a Humanities student, you probably are!) then you should consider stopping by the Career Resource Centre to check out our wide range of career search books directly related to students within the faculty of humanities. Books available in our centre include:
- The Successful Artist's Career Guide

Some positions will require some sort of graduate studies whether it's a post-graduate certificate or a Masters/PhD. For more information regarding graduate studies check out Canadian University's website for a listing of various Masters and PhD programs.
What Can You Do Right Now?: Explore your interests, get involved, and ask questions of anyone you encounter who is working for a company or in a position you might be interested in! Your degree is extremely valuable and can open doors to discovery, adventure, and an endless amount of knowledge. Get to know your skills and learn how to market yourself to your ideal employer. Talk to your professors and TAs and establish connections with any other professionals your encounter.
Good luck! Feel free to stop by the Career Resource Centre in the Learning Commons if you have any questions about what to do with your degree, resumes, or any job search related inquiries. If you are currently living away from the campus you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our summer hours at 9 - 4 Monday to Friday. I hope to see you soon!
