How to use your Resource Centre

Throughout the summer, university and college students have time to involve themselves with experiences and research about their specific degrees and career goals. Many universities and colleges have a department to assist students with gaining this information. I strongly suggest any student to visit their Career Services department often to learn more about opportunities, events, and experiences you can be a part of. They hold lots of value for your future. At Career Services and the Career Resource Centre at Brock University we offer many services for students to use such as resume/cover letter reviews, portfolio reviews, mock interviews, and many print resources and online resources they can access. Here are a few reasons why you should visit your Career Services department:

  • They are made up of people who know what you are going through and can help you start your career path and reach your goals
  • Most services are free of charge (like resume reviews, cover letter reviews, and portfolio reviews)
  • They have many resources, books, and magazines to read and take home so you can gain knowledge in your desired field
  • They know where to find the best online resources for job searching and networking
  • They can give you tips for personal branding and social networking, so you can use them as a job-seeker
  • Lastly, they are friendly and want to see their students succeed after graduation!

For the next few weeks I will be discussing different career resources that we offer to students such as magazines, books, articles, and a variety of guides. Stay tuned for this information!
