Keeping up with Goodman 📈

Hey Badgers! Getting involved during your University career can make the difference between having an ok time to have an amazing time. I can say from my personal experience, some of my best and brightest memories at Brock were made from joining a student club and getting involved on campus. Brock has so much to offer its students that we cannot just have one blog post to it, so we are dedicating this post to the Goodman Business Students!

There’s no better time to be a Goodman student than right now! As second semester is underway there are a plethora of events, clubs and teams to get involved in. Goodman Career is the department at Brock University which works with the Goodman student body and helps develop the talent pool at Brock. Whatever advice you may need pertaining to your future career and job search Goodman Career will have the answer.

Interested in applying to a job, but don’t know if your resume will make the cut? Goodman Career is here for you. From LinkedIn reviews to graduate school applications, to mock interviews they are the one stop shop for all your career related questions. Find us through the Goodman Portal on or visit us at the Gate to get those career-related questions answered!

Goodman Career is hosting its final "Exploring Careers in..." series of the year on February 12, 2020 from 5-7pm. Exploring Careers in Entrepreneurship is a chance for students to hear from REAL entrepreneurs who turned their passions into a career. Students will also have the opportunity to hear about working for startups and how the culture of a company can change depending on its team and size. For more events like this log on to, click on the "Goodman Career" events tab to register.

Looking to get involved in some other ways? Business students interested in student leadership can look to join the Business Students Association. A club which over sees all the business clubs at Brock. Umbrella clubs which are also looking for more student engagement include the Accounting Students Association, Brock Finance and Investments Group, Brock Innovation Group, Women in Business, Brock Marketing Association and more. More information can be found through the clubs social media pages, or visit the Business Students Association office at GSB 309.

If you’re looking to practice your pitching skills there are many cases and pitch style competitions to take part in. This year Goodman placed in the top 3 at the JDCC Case Competition and brought home a number of trophies from DECA Provincials. The Monster Pitch competition is another way to develop your presentation skills and sell the idea of a product or service. Follow the Goodman BSA and other related business student clubs to learn about more opportunities to get involved. The Goodman School of Business provides an excellent supporting step to get involved. I suggest starting to look at what you’re interested in now for the following school year. Make the most of your University career. After all, these are the best years of your life!

Don't forget, stop by CareerZone located in Market Hall, or come see us at the Gate located at the end of the Canadian Tire Bridge for document reviews or get your questions answered! Hours for the Winter semester are: Tuesday from 9am-1pm, Wednesday from 9am-2pm, Thursday 11:30am-2:30pm, and Friday from 9am-12pm!
