Experience Expo to connect students with dozens of employers

More than 70 employers from across the province will be on campus Wednesday, Feb. 8 to meet with — and in some cases, interview — Brock students about a variety of job opportunities.

Organized by Co-op, Career and Experiential Education (CCEE), the Experience Expo will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the University’s Ian D. Beddis Gymnasium. The event will provide students the chance to meet with dozens of employers, network and learn more about opportunities available to them. Some employers will also be conducting on-the spot interviews for co-op, full-time and summer positions.

Melissa Beamer, CCEE’s Manager of Student and Internal Engagement, said the expo is an opportunity for students to get a head-start on securing jobs while networking with employers in a supportive environment.

“We know students may be feeling a bit nervous about networking and they might be out-of-practice as well,” she said. “The advantage of this event is that we will have the CCEE team on site and available to coach students through networking and connecting with employers. We will even have members of our team providing on-site resumé reviews to ensure our students are presenting themselves in the best way possible to potential employers.”

With so many job opportunities available, the labour market is actively looking to engage student talent, especially at Brock, said CCEE Director Cara Krezek.

“Our reputation for having hard-working, high-performing and knowledgeable students is at the forefront of our brand with employers,” she said.

Students are encouraged to dress as though they are going to a job interview and to have their resumés ready.

Anyone who registers before Tuesday, Jan. 31 will have a chance to win one of several $50 Amazon gift cards.
