It’s great timing that first and second year midterm classes are cancelled in the week before Reading Week so that we can really focus on our exams before taking a nice week off. I went back home to Mississauga and spent most of the week in and out of Toronto for some meetings, networking opportunities, and to just unwind and soak up life in the big city before I head back to Kingston. I’ve been catching up on a lot of work and unread emails, and of course, following Canada along in the Olympics! Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be able to visit my old high school and say hi to my former teachers. Definitely a strange feeling to watch all the students going down the halls…
I’ve also been doing a lot of research on summer jobs in marketing, and sports and entertainment over the past little while. While I’ve had a lot of job experiences in and around Mississauga, this year I’m hoping to find a good summer internship position in Toronto (more networking!) before I leave for Norway at the end of the summer. However, it’s Careers Week next week, so perhaps I’ll find some good opportunities there…I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
If you haven’t heard about it already, I definitely encourage you to come and visit Queen’s and check out Goodes Hall during the March Break Open House taking place March 18th and 19th. You’ll have the opportunity to tour the building and there will be an open panel discussion about the Commerce program. Of course, if you can’t make it then feel free to send me an email with any of your questions. I’m always happy to reply to your emails; it makes me feel like this blog isn’t such a one-sided discussion! You can reach me at email@example.com.
