(Business Administration Co-op, 2nd year.)
Hi, my name is Elizabeth. An interesting fact about me is that I enjoy fictional books and movies over non-fiction because they let real imagination show without being restricted by the world's limits. My favorite CareerZone related experience was attending the co-op winter mixer. At first, it was a bit out of my comfort zone to meet so many new people all at once, but in the end, it was a great experience. I met many amazing people with great stories to tell some of which I am still connected too, and I became more comfortable with holding a casual small talk. It was a great place for me to expand my network with other students.
During these strange times, I am hoping to become a helpful resource for any students who need help preparing/figuring out their future. I hope to give them the chance to explore new opportunities even online and feel more confident about their future.

Hi, I’m Mikaela. One of my
favourite things to do is interact with people and to learn about their
interests and passions. As a Career Assistant, I have the opportunity to stay
connected with students and to be a helping hand in their understanding of the
leadership skills and strengths valued in potential employees. During this
unique time, I am glad that we have the amazing opportunity to continue to connect virtually, to ensure
students have the best experience.

My name is Valarie. An
interesting fact about myself is that I have never had even a sip of Coffee! My
favourite experience with CareerZone has been seeing the friendly faces every
time I walk through the business hall. Getting greeted by them always puts a
smile on my face and I hope to be able to do the same this year! My biggest joy
in life is helping others, so throughout this year I hope to be able to help as
many students as I can in my new role! I also hope to help make the job search
easier for students and be a stepping stool for their success!

Hi I’m Brieanna. An interesting
fact about me is that I was a competitive figure skater for thirteen years. My
favourite CareerZone related experience are the events that are held throughout
the year that encourage and provide insight on career exploration and job
search strategies that are available for every single Brock University
student to attend. I am excited about engaging in quality
conversations about career related topics in my new role and form
good relations with my peers. I am also excited to participate in the several events that
CareerZone holds throughout the year!

Hi, my name is Lisa. I have a Journalism Diploma from
Niagara College. An interesting fact about me is that I received the Associate
Dean’s Award — for overall excellence in Year 1, and I tied for the Senator
Kieth Davey Memorial Scholarship — in Year 2. I am excited to help students
gain knowledge about our services. I want students and staff to be excited
for their future and broaden their knowledge of where their experiences and
studies can take them! Additionally, I enjoy learning from other people, so I
am excited to learn from my fellow staff as well as students! We can all learn
something from each other!

Hi my name is Joceline, and I'm a Lead Career Assistant. My
favourite CareerZone related experience was having a student come to me a
couple weeks after I helped them perform a document review, to express their gratitude of obtaining a job with a company they really wanted. During this time, the
pandemic has taken a toll on everyone and I hope to help students of Brock reach
their career/job goals whether that be from the comfort of their own home or

Hi my name is Yaa. My favourite
career-related experience is having discussions with students about their
career aspirations and providing them with the resources they need for their career journey. Starting my new role as a Sr. Career Assistant this
