Brock Leaders Citizenship Society (BLCS) in partnership with Alumni and Donor Relations are holding a panel discussion to address opportunities for upcoming graduates.
A panel made up of four alumni will be held for those interested in learning about career paths and options after graduation. This event will help students think about what their future may look like and begin the process of planning ahead.
The event will be held Friday, March 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Cairns Atrium.
The event is question and answer style, which will allow students to direct their questions to the specific panelists.
“[The Planning Ahead Panel] is an opportunity for all Brock students to speak to Brock alumni that were involved in their programs and extracurriculars. They were heavily involved while they were at Brock and continue to remain heavily involved in their community after they graduate,” said Vani Sharma, Leadership and Honour Societies assistant. “It is an opportunity for students to talk to different alumni from different backgrounds about their career paths and their involvement and to ask questions.”
The panelists are from a variety of different programs and offer diverse experiences in undergraduate, graduate and extracurricular activities.
According to Sharma the panelists will be: Megan Brown, a Brock alumni from the medical sciences program; Tessa Lofthouse, who is now a teacher after completing a Concurrent Education degree majoring in French studies; Chris Ventura, who is now working as office manager for a member of parliament, but completed his double major in history and political science in 2012 and went onto his Master of Education in Leadership and Administration and John Mikhaeil, a Brock and BLCS alumni who has gone into medical school at the University of Toronto.
“It is a great opportunity to network with Brock alumni that maybe you don’t have the connections with and to see different ways to get involved,” said Sharma.
