most people this may not be the case Imagine dropping a ping pong ball in a dark room We don t know where the ball will land but we can use mathematical formulas to pinpoint where the ball may land A process like this can be a metaphor for the easier way of finding a career Now imagine dropping the ping pong ball into Times Square New York Where the ping pong ball lands is unpredictable which is similar to the way the career finding process will be for many There are methods to navigate this madness One method is to identify what cluster of jobs may work for you such as working with people Using this example there are many skills such as communication a person can develop which is transferable inside of the service industry Another method is to know that help is there when you need it The Career Resource center at Brock University have people who are there to act as a guide to show you various resources that can help you navigate the Career Field Often times what can help an individual with the Career decision making process are a series of chain reactions An example of this is obtaining skills that would help towards a cluster of jobs then finding employment into a career you never seen yourself in and then developing in that section Embrace the unexpected Know those things may not go as planned and roll with it Make a series of small choices that will help influence the larger picture Lastly look at things in the big picture Looking at things in a microscope can make things overwhelming Take a step into overseeing the whole scheme of things and see how a domino effect can happening by making a choice We would be honoured if we got to be a part of that process http www careeroptionsmagazine com articles applying chaos theory to career development

field of study focus on finding a position that interests you even if it doesn t necessarily fit into your perfect job category Many skills are transferable and can be used in various roles so instead of asking yourself what type of job you want ask yourself what kind of problems you would like to solve or what skills you d like to gain Where to Look Go to Careerzone careerzone brocku ca to take a

figuring out whether or not your resume is appropriate for the job you are applying for However many neglect this step in the resume editing process Why Because many of us don t have the time Job hunting can take hours and writing personalized cover letters and tailoring your resume can be a job within itself Luckily most post secondary institutions including Brock offer review services to make sure your documents are looking good before you start applying to different positions Here are THREE reasons you should utilize resume review services 1 Subjectivity When we as individuals are working on and editing our resumes we often times overlook obvious errors simply because we are being subjective Perhaps we might even avoid being too hard on ourselves since the job market is hard enough sometimes But this subjectivity can lead to missing things which could make or break the strength of an application Spelling errors typos and alignment are the three most common errors made when creating resumes Getting a quick review can help prevent a small mistake from costing you the job of your dreams 2 Content Many of us have the standard categories in our resumes Work Experience Volunteer Experience Education However there are many other categories which can be utilized Getting your resume reviewed may open your eyes to new headings you can utilize to highlight your experiences For example having a Special Skills section is a great way to highlight language and technical skills 3 Opportunities If you are working on your resume right now chances are it is because you are looking for paid or volunteer opportunities By getting your resume reviewed you can not only ensure you are representing your skills and experiences in the best way possible but you can also find out about opportunities through simply visiting a career centre Our Career Assistant team at Brock is super knowledgeable about current and upcoming opportunities and we love helping students find that perfect position that suits their unique needs So what are you waiting for Look up your nearest career resource centre and get your resume reviewed today And for all Brock students getting a resume review is MUCH easier than you think Simply bring a hard copy of your resume or cover letter or CV to the Career Resource Centre in the Learning Commons and we can review it in roughly 15 20

Scarlet Stark Wednesday January 27 2016 Succeed at Career Events The On Campus Jobs Fair recently wrapped up at Brock and it was a huge success In light of this event I thought a blog on how to prepare in order to succeed at career events might be a great way to help guide students for future career events on campus and elsewhere Prepping before the event to do well during the event is necessary to succeed In order to prepare yourself keep these 6 factors in mind 1 Do your research Find out which employers will be at the event and check out their website This will help you tailor your documents as well as give you an opportunity to come up with questions you may have about the company that you can ask at the event 2 Review the opportunities Many employers post the positions they are looking to fill prior to the career event itself Check these out See which positions speak to your knowledge and skills Again this will help you tailor your documents and allow you to go into the event with focus 3 Define your KSA s Knowing your Knowledge Skills Abilities allows you sell yourself to employers Figuring out what you have to offer employers prior to the event will help you sell yourself to employers during the event It will also help you develop your elevator pitch 4 Develop an elevator pitch It s important to be able to describe yourself your skills and where your headed career wise briefly and concisely Jot down what you want to tell employers about yourself and how you want to be remembered by them and practice this pitch This will allow you to introduce yourself to employers in an efficient manner while still highlighting who you are and what your goals are 5 Bring your documents And ask for documents Go to the event equipped with resumes business cards And make sure to grab any information sheets or business cards from the employers recruiters They are handing this information out for a reason typically to inform you of the company and how to get in touch with them You may want to bring a briefcase or professional looking bag to store your documents in too 6 Dress the part Dress professionally If you are unsure how to go about this it wouldn t hurt to use your friend Google to look up the company and see what employees typically wear to their career events or on the job See the photo to the right for help with this Thanks for reading Come visit us at the Career Resource Centre for any questions concerns you may have regarding career events We are always happy to help Have an excellent day Scarlet Stark Sr Career Assistant

discouraging than a resume that has clearly been taken from a template and not customized at all for the job the applicant is applying for Luckily for you you have stumbled upon our blog and can get help to make sure that your resume s are actually being read by employers and taken seriously Here are some tips about tailoring your resume 1 Employers will notice Having hired students before both here at Career Services and for my own business a few years ago It is very easy to see when the applicant has put forth a reasonable amount of effort to tailor their resume Simple things like how recent their employment dates are what their achievement statements are saying what skills they are addressing it all adds up Take the time they will notice 2 Sticking to the template is both good and bad Templates help you understand the basic structure and formatting of a resume By no means are they a bad thing altogether but rather if you stick to them 100 of the time Feel free to add some of your own style to it while keeping it professional a great way to do this is by customizing your information on the top of the page adding a border either centering or left centering your headings etc 3 Job qualifications make sure you address them One major disadvantage of using a general resume is that you do not always address all of the job qualifications that the employer is looking for In other words even if the employers are in the same industry i e retail they will be looking for different qualities and qualifications in their employees If you tailor your resume to those qualifications you will get more interviews guaranteed 4 Don t forget about the cover letters This article is mainly about resumes but let s not forget about the other half of the application Cover letters are even more important to tailor as if you forget to change the direction of the cover letter for each employer they may not look past it to your resume A lot of the time the employer will state directly on the job application what kind of employee they are looking for as well as their values and missions Address these specifically in each cover letter Taking the extra 10 minutes to do this will make a world of difference 5 If you think you should be hired show it The best part about tailoring your resume is that it gives you the best opportunity to show the employer that you are the best applicant After all the applicant who will spend the extra time
