Recruiting Brock students with disabilities

In 2012-2013 there was over 18,000 full & part-time students enrolled at Brock University. Of those students there was 900+ students registered (self-declared) with the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre. This number captures only those students who have registered with the centre and is not necessarily inclusive of all students with disabilities.

Career Education follows the ‘Guidelines for Recruiting Graduates with Self-Declared Disabilities’ as set out by the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE). These guidelines build on the framework and specific activities developed in the CACEE Ethical Recruitment Guidelines document for the professional relationships between employers, students, third party recruiters and career educators.

Information Sessions & Showcases

An effective way to present your organization and its opportunities to students with disabilities. You can target your session to a specific group of students or open your session to all faculties & alumni. Our promotions team is glad to assist you in planning the logistics, providing necessary equipment and promoting your session through various media outlets.

Information sessions provide an opportunity to deliver a formal presentation and connect with a distinct group of students. Such sessions also provide students with a better sense of the qualifications necessary to join and grow within your company. The intimate seminar setting also allows for an informal networking session following the presentation.

Employer Showcases are a great opportunity for you to promote & describe the unique opportunities of your business to potential employees. Our promotions team can provide you with a table in one of our many high-traffic on-campus locations where students have the opportunity to connect with you one-on-one to learn the benefits of being a part of your organization.

We look forward to working with you! For more information about Information Sessions & Showcases please contact Lisa Kuiper.
