This week, Kristine Simpson and Julia Kent recap the events of a panel Julia was involved in for fourth year journalism students, at Carleton University, interested in going in to the field of communications.
The panel is meant to bring in young professionals that have succeeded at securing a permanent job in communications. Julia, a graduate of the Carleton University journalism program, was joined by Stephanie Brooks, national communications specialist for the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, and Joe Boughner, a digital strategist at Non-Linear Creations; both very intelligent and successful people in the industry of communications.
Kristine and Julia recap some highlights from the panel, drawing attention to some really good advice given by the panelists:
But, we just scratch the surface of some of the great tips and advice shared during the panel. You can listen to the entire panel here. Please note the audio is 44 minutes long, so, pour yourself a cup of tea, sit down with a pen and paper and take notes. There are a lot of great tips.
And, because our lovely hosts love to talk, Kristine and Julia end up going off on a tangent and talking about the role of a degree when searching for a job. Does it really matter? Can you get a job with just a degree?
