"After some career search and job hunt missteps, I decided to see a career coach at Camosun, a valuable and free service provided for current and past students of the college. Irene Wallace in Student and Alumni Employment Services was a great help. I see those meetings with Irene as a turning point in my search for a new and interesting career direction."
Nathan, alumnus working in the financial sector
Every month, the Career Services office rewards one pro-active student for their participation in preparation for their career. Winners receive a $20 bookstore gift certificate and a Camosun mug to show their school pride.
Congratulations to our Fall 2019 winners, Lindsay Van Gerven & Nadine Albhouse!
Lindsay Van Gerven is our October Career Services Ballot Winner. She has taken advantage and engaged with many of our career services that are available to students and alumni. Lindsay has booked career coaching and planning appointments with Irene Wallace one of our Employment Facilitators; she attended many of the career seminars held this past fall; and she also searched co-op guidance. She is currently a first year student in Camosun’s University Transfer program but she will be moving to a Business Associate Degree program. Lindsay stated, “I think all the guidance I have received from the Career Lab has been beneficial. I have taken it in small bits to understand how I can best use it and stop by often to check on and get questions answered.” She is aiming for a career in the field of Communication and/or Public Engagement.
Nadine Albhouse was our September Career Services Ballot winner. She is a first year student in Camosun’s Business Administration Program. Nadine attended our “Get Advice and Grab a Slice” partnered event with the Student Society along with many students at Lansdowne Campus. She said about the event, “It was helpful I learned a lot of things about where I can go for help and details about my program.” At this point Nadine is uncertain about her career path but she intends to explore with the help of our Co-op & Career Services Department.
