Mario Lopez was the lucky winner of the $300 Career Development Center scholarship at the fall 2013 Career Fair Sept. 26! He plans to finish his basics at Brookhaven College before transferring on to a four-year university where he will pursue his goal of obtaining a degree in medical engineering.
Career Development Center has been so helpful in helping me build my resume and also preparing me for a job interview with a mock interview. The staff is so helpful, and very attentive to my needs, that I never feel alone. I recommend the Career Development Center to anyone who needs assistance in obtaining a job.
My appointment at the Career Development Center was very interesting and beneficial. I learned how to make an efficient resume and cover letter; and I acquired interview tips through the Mock Interview. With this knowledge, I feel more confident when I am applying for a job.
For several semesters, the Career Development Center at Brookhaven has been a fantastic resource for my Human Development and Education classes. All of my students are required to take career interest and personality inventories. Each semester the CDC staff visits our classroom and provides group interpretations of these assessments. It is always a lively, “information-filled” session, presented in a professional manner. Students continue to express how pleased they are with what they have learned about themselves regarding possible career choices.
My appointment helped me tremendously. I left feeling reassured that I was on the right track with my degree and career plan based on my test results. I also was given information on resume writing and I reformatted my resume and used a lot of the buzz words found on the handout and got five interviews in a week! It was awesome! I also just got a job offer so I feel really good about the help and information I got from the counselor at the Career Development Center. Thank you so much for helping me; it really was worth the time to take the tests and meet with someone who gave me a lot of confidence and feel good feelings about where my path is going at this point in my life.
