In this week’s Conversations with Goodman podcast, host Susan LeBlanc talks to business communications graduate Vanessa Hartwick (BA ’16) about her Brock experience and how it led to full-time employment in her field before graduating.
Hartwick returned to campus recently to speak to Goodman School of Business students in a marketing class, and offered advice for students who are looking for jobs.
Hartwick said students need to differentiate themselves and to highlight their unique experiences.
A past winner of the Grant Dobson Case Competition and a sports broadcaster for BrockTV during her time as a student, Hartwick had many unique experiences to draw on in interviews.
“It was one of the best experiences I had at Brock,” Hartwick said of the Grant Dobson Case Competition.
She also participated in an international exchange at the University of Mannheim in Germany for a year, and said the experience helped her become more adaptable and independent.
Hartwick is now working as an assistant manager of marketing at Flexiti Financial.
