CareerZone Services – What are we About?
This blog post will highlight the services we provide Brock University students at all levels and stages in their career journey. Students will be able to access many of our resources through the CareerZone portal at careerzone.brocku.ca, using their Brock student credentials.
1. Document Review
In CareerZone, we urge students to get their resume and cover letter reviewed, in order to stand out to employers. This is important because having an updated document shows quality and regularly reviewing your documents makes you become more proactive. Need help? Our Career Assistants can help guide you through the document review process. Simply, email us a Word version of your resume and cover letter to email@example.com.
2. Experience More
On our website students can learn more about getting involved and explore useful resources that help build professional and employability skills. These may include job search, graduate opportunities, volunteer opportunities, experiential learning, going abroad and more. We also offer an assortment of career assessments like Career Cruising and ColourCode to help individuals identify their interests and personality, to help with career exploration. Platforms such as Interview Stream, can also be found on our portal and aid students to practice their responses to interview questions, while building their confidence. Thirdly, students can book appointments with our Talent Development Specialist for in-depth consultations regarding job search strategies, mock interviews and more.
3. Workshops and Events
Students can check out the events page to view upcoming workshops, webinars and events. Attending these workshops and employer events are a great way for students to gain new knowledge about a particular field and even build and expand their network. Partaking in these events will also help students to better manage and maximize their Brock experience by learning to apply the skills they have acquired.
