What is Virtual Career Studio?
The Virtual Career Studio is housed within the Career, Leadership & Transfer Pathways Canvas. Current Brookdale students have an opportunity to engage in open discussion boards, review career development modules, and reserve appointments to virtually meet with a Career Peer Mentor. Career Peer Mentor appointments can be made to learn about career exploration resources, resume reviews, interview preparation, leadership skill development, job searching strategies, and internship search assistance.
