DEG of the Week! (May 7 - May 11)

Starting This Summer!

We know it's hard to keep focused on your career when the sun comes out and summer takes over! So, to try to keep you all focused we have come up with a new weekly post: DEG of the week! In case you haven't visited Career Zone online or in centre, DEG stands for Degree Exploration Guide.

We keep DEGs in the resource centre and online for every program.  DEGs outline a list of common career options from a degree as well as degree specific skills. Also, DEGs offer various links to help with job and volunteer search in that chosen field! Who wouldn't want one of these for their program?

Each week we will be choosing one Degree Exploration Guide to focus on more in depth and welcome all students to come and learn about the different programs here at Brock!
