Welcome to week three of Canada Career Month Badgers!!
Brock is famous for leading in experiential learning, and because of this there are many opportunities for students to engage in quality experiential learning opportunities. The Co-op, Career and Experiential Education (CCEE) department is very innovative and has been able to support thousands of students looking to build their skills and experience.
When I first started at Brock, it was quite difficult to experience anything that the school had to offer as it was the peak of COVID-19. As an international student this is my first year on campus and my first time in the country. There is a lot to explore and learn. I had no idea where to find clubs, volunteer experiences, jobs and I missed a lot of these opportunities because of my lack of knowledge. So, I hope by the end of this blog you will be able to pick something that will bring you closer to amplifying your experience at Brock.
Where to find the experiences?
Brock has an entire website dedicated to experiences at the school. To find out what these experiences are, all you need to do is search up “Experience BU” and then log in with your student ID and explore the various opportunities available to you. To find out about volunteer and job experiences, check out the CareerZone portal at https://careerzone.brocku.ca. Again, log in with your student credentials and navigate the platform.
Why is it important?
It is never too late to amplify your experience at Brock as there is something for everyone within the school. While engaging in new experiences can be uncomfortable at times, you never know until you try. I encourage you to take a manageable risk and explore the experiences that Brock has to offer!
