CareerZone Shutdown! will be offline and unavailable from December 10-14 for a system upgrade. During this time students, employers and all other users of the platform should contact if you have questions or require assistance.

We take great care to ensure you’re prepared for the transition from school to the world of work. Your first work term builds your self-confidence and shows our corporate partners that Brock University co-op students make an immediate contribution.

We seek to understand the business and industry sectors in which you’ll be working, and to share that knowledge with you through the mandatory Co-op Professional Preparation Course. This non-credit course is led by co-op staff and often features employers from different industries. Please refer to the appropriate University calendar for how to include these workshops into your academic schedule.

The preparation course is a pre-requisite for current co-op students to continue on with their co-op degree program. Topics include job search techniques; effective interviewing; contemporary workplace issues such as ethics and confidentiality; resumé and cover letter writing; successful networking strategies; and transitioning from student to employee.

Visit CareerZone today for more detailed information on your co-op process.
