As the weather starts getting warmer, CareerZone is excited to assist you this summer! We are offering many services to support you in understanding your skills, job search, preparing for an interview, discovering your career goals, building your network, and more.
How can we help you?
This summer we are offering both in-person and virtual services. We have in-person drop-in hours Monday to Friday from 10 am - 4 pm. Come stop by our physical CareerZone space to ask questions, use our headshot booth, and have your job application documents reviewed!
In addition, throughout the spring terms, CareerZone Cafe workshops will be held every Tuesday (in-person) and Thursday (virtual via MS Teams) from 12-1 pm. Virtual Q&As will also be offered every Wednesday from 1-2 pm via MS Teams.
Here at CareerZone, we encourage students to have their resume and cover letter reviewed in order to stand out to employers. Need help? Our Career Assistants can guide you through the document review process. Email a Microsoft Word version of your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with feedback. You can also stop by CareerZone on-campus during our drop-in hours to have your application documents reviewed in-person.
We also encourage students during this time to explore their CareerZone portal. Here, you can gain access to a plethora of resources all about effective job search strategies, finding graduate opportunities, cover letter and resume writing, volunteer opportunities, going abroad, and more. Also available through the CareerZone portal are career assessments like Career Cruising and TypeFocus to help you identify your interests and personality to help with career exploration. Platforms, such as Interviewing.com, can also be found on your portal and help prepare you for an upcoming interview. Additionally, you can book appointments with our Talent Development Specialist for one-on-one conversations regarding career advising, job search strategies, and mock interviews. To access your CareerZone portal go to careerzone.brocku.ca and sign in with your student credentials.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email (email@example.com). We look forward to helping you and having a great summer!
