Advertising and Marketing Communications Class of 2010
Advertising Manager at Mobilicity, the fastest growing new wireless carrier in Canada.
I entered Georgian College with a Masters degree and several years experience in Marketing, but I wanted to upgrade my current skills, learn about the newest trends and gain additional knowledge about the Advertising industry. Without a doubt, the Advertising Program at Georgian College ‘jump started’ my career and within weeks of graduating I was offered a great role at an Advertising Agency that lead me to my current position. I use the skills I gained at Georgian College every single day.
Advertising and Marketing Communications Class of 2005
National Account Manager for ‘the Score Television Network’
The Advertising program at Georgian College provided me with a solid foundation and understanding of the advertising/marketing world. In reality, the Advertising program is a tight knit group of individuals with the most caring and educated faculty of any program I’ve come across. If you want to succeed, the experience, passion and willing to teach is there for you to grasp. My advice? – Take it and run!”
