"Rock Your Career!" Week

As we near the end of the semester, Loyalist PR students are beginning to turn their focus to the internship hunt, and the career that awaits them beyond graduation.

To help prepare for the job hunt, students were challenged to "rock their career" this past week.

Among the outstanding keynote speakers who joined us here at Loyalist PR were:

Leslie Hetherington, President of the Toronto chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), an organization to which all Loyalist PR students belong

Sue Dafoe, Account Manager of Charity Village, who provided great insights on job-finding in the not-for-profit sector

Lyndsay Kerik, the "world famous" Career & Employment Services Manager at Loyalist College

Laurie Pratt, Counsellor who provided Loyalist PR students with helpful tips on managing stress both in school and in the workplace

Stewart Hood of Stewart Hood Creative Inc. who brought us all up to speed on personal branding

Pat Bradley of Job Connect who provided valuable, real-world tips on leaving a lasting impression and landing your dream job

Finally, we wrapped up the week with a great Business Etiquette Luncheon today at Club 213 here at Loyalist College.

A great week with limitless possibilities ahead... so glad I've been along for the journey.
