Read on to learn a little bit about the experiences our CA’s had working for Career Services!

Becky White
Lead Career Assistant
Tourism and Environment

I do not know where I would be without this job. I say that almost daily! I have worked here for three years and every year I am lucky enough to work with the most wonderful people in the most unique environment. I would like to thank everyone who has been a part of my Career Services experience over the past three years, especially all of the CA’s who have moved on before me and have helped to show me the way! Thank you for teaching me, accepting me, and telling me that my love obsession with cats is totally normal. A special thank you to Kara for teaching me so much about life in the professional world… and life in general. In the ice show we didn’t say goodbye, we said see you down the road… so… see you down the road!

Wajeeh Alvi
Career Assistant
Computer Science

Being a part of the Career Services team has been a great experience for me. It has always been a passion of mine to help others and this role has helped me do so with respect to career development. Being at the forefront of providing help to students and alumni is very rewarding and even more so when they come back with their success stories. I can say that this job has, by far, been the most impactful job that I've done. I also had the amazing opportunity to work with such wonderful people who've helped me grow as a person and our time together is the thing I'll miss the most. I want to thank Kara Renaud for bringing me on board her team and equipping me with the skills which I'll be able to apply in more than just the workplace.
I wish everyone at Career Services good luck in their endeavors and to meet challenges head on. All the best!

Simon Drum
Graduate Career Assistant

Simon is MA Candidate for Applied Health Sciences at Brock University, specializing in sport psychology. As a Graduate Career Assistant at the Brock Career Resource Centre, Simon assisted Brock students and alumni with career information and resources to support students and alumni with their career planning and job search goals. As an international graduate student from Australia, Simon particularly worked with assisting graduate and  international students prepare for the next stage of their career, whether that be in Canada  or internationally.
Simon not only enjoyed the experience he gained from the position to assist in his career plans as a sport psychology consultant, he also enjoyed working with such a great team who all just simply enjoy helping people.

Monika Parsons
Graduate Career Assistant
MA Child and Youth

 It has been a wonderful year at Career Services.  I have had an opportunity to work with some incredibly talented and inspirational people.  Thank you to the wonderful CS team who work tirelessly at providing the best service to students which they deliver with enthusiasm and genuine care.  I have grown tremendously in my ability to understand undergraduate and graduate student needs and how to best support our Brock community with achieving their career oriented goals.
I am very proud to have had a chance to meet some fantastic students who, I am certain will make significant impact in the world.  Although it may be seem like it's the end, it's actually only the beginning. Good luck in all your future endeavors.
