I was in my last year of University, and I was freaking out because after four years I still didn’t know how to go about getting a job or even what I wanted that job to be. In high school you think that the hardest decision is where your are going to get your post secondary education, I’d like to argue that figuring out what to do after that is even harder and way scarier. All of a sudden, you’re an adult, a real adult, finished school ready to enter the world of employment. Except, I wasn’t ready, not at all. I Studied Communications at Wilfrid Laurier University, for four years. I finished with a solid GPA; I had made connections and friendships that I will hold onto forever. But I was in no way ready to go out in the world and start a career.
While in my graduation-induced panic, my dad suggested I look at this Advertising program at Sheridan College. I looked online and liked what I saw. First of all it worked well with my Communications degree, and secondly I already had an interest in the world of advertising. It seemed like a no brainer, and it was in my hometown. So I could live at home, save some money and hopefully get the added education that would help me prepare for the real world.
I’m now in my second semester of the Advertising Account Management post-graduate program. It was exactly what I needed to do, and it continues to impress me way beyond my expectations. This blog will be about my experiences past, present and future at Sheridan College.
