Working Over The Holidays!

Brock U is in FULL EXAM-MODE! 

Although there are a lot of tasks, assignments, and exams going on... there is a lot of time to get ahead in the career side of things during this holiday season!

This can be done by updating your professional documents (CV, Resume, Cover Letter etc), networking, and being on the lookout for potential employers!

Some more practical steps you could take is challenging yourself to do a 

"5 things to do before the end of Winter Break". 

The challenge is to:

1. Speak to a close friend or a family member about a career goal you have in mind

In the season of giving, bond with someone you care about through a goal you genuinely care about in the career world.

2. Update your LinkedIn/Make a LinkedIn

In the corporate world, LinkedIn is very necessary, networking has been made so much easier through this app and it is a necessary bridge to put in place for your success.

3. Look for 10 possible employers you could apply for, for the summer period

This is a practical step to think about because it can also reveal the jobs you would be interested in partaking in and where you ideally see yourself.

4. Start looking at prerequisites for Post-Grad applications

It is always better to start looking into application requirements earlier than later. I assure you, you do not want to be bombarded with several statements of interest.

5. Write SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) Goals for 2024 regarding your professional/career-based path
