You know how October is dedicated to Halloween and how December is all about the winter holidays? While November is that awkward month where you don’t know what to celebrate? Well turn that frown upside down, it’s CANADA CAREER MONTH! Canadians all over are taking a break between dressing up in costumes and decorating festive cookies to celebrate all the amazing careers Canada has to offer. All of November, we’re here at Career Zone making sure you know about all the career opportunities and resources around you!
Here’s the schedule for all the fun you could be having with us at Career Zone during Canada Career Month:
Week 1: Got Skillz?
The first week of CCM, we’ll be celebrating people’s first jobs (even those embarrassing ones you never want to talk about) and how they kickstarted your career whether you noticed or not! Think of all the skills you gained from the first time you worked. Talking with different people all day long so they understood your menu or service? You used communication skills! Trying to get all your tasks done on your shift? That’s called time management! You got skillz and we’re gonna show you how to use ‘em!
Week 2: Back to the Future!
The second week of Canada Career Month will be focusing on asking advice about your career! We’ll start with our amazing staff here at Career Education and ask them: “If you could go back in time what would you tell yourself 10 years ago?”. Grab a notepad, the professionals today have some tips you won’t want to forget!
Week 3: Calling all Alumni!
This week we’ll be connecting with alumni and asking about their experience at Brock and their current career positions. Most alums state that their career path was not a straight line from leaving studies at Brock to their dream career, and they got a lot of help along the way from services like ours at Career Zone! You won’t want to miss this, think of all the paths undiscovered!
Week 4: Dream On, Dream Job!
The fourth week of Canada Career Month is all about career exploration and dreaming big! This week is where the prizes come in – and we’re not just talking about the prize of a great career. Check out our social media and stay tuned for more details!
