Our Career-Focused Approach

At Brighton College, education goes far beyond the walls of the classroom. We believe that learning comes from doing; most of our programs involve a practicum or co-op component that gives students an opportunity to put their academic skills to the test in a real-world environment.

Nearing graduation, we provide ongoing career assistance to students through our Career Development Services department that offers informational career resources and one-on-one assistance in developing job search strategies and connecting students with a large network of potential employers that will help jump start their careers.

Students also have access to the Brighton College Career Centre (BCCC) which assists students with job seeking by displaying unique job postings by Brighton College and combining a large number of online career search engines that share job postings, practicum postings and even volunteer postings.
