Introducing the New Career Assistants!

Career Services is excited to introduce you to our 6 new Career Assistants for the 2012/2013 school year! Joining our lead CA and three senior CAs, the new Career Assistant team will be happy to answer all of your job and career related questions throughout the rest of the school year.

We thought we would take the time to introduce our new staff by asking them each a career related question to find out a little bit more about them!

Ben (Recreation and Leisure Studies)
Q: If you could have any fictional job what would it be?
A: Leprechaun because I can eat all the Lucky Charms I want and charm all the ladies at the pub.

Nella (Psychology - 3rd Year)
Q: What was your first job and what did you like/dislike about it?
A: My first job was at Highland Country Markets. I worked at the meat counter of the butcher portion of store. I only liked some of the people I worked with other than that I disliked EVERYTHING from management, to never having a Saturday off, to having to serve bits of pigs and cows to customers. Hard to believe I stayed for a year!

Becky (Tourism and Environment - 2nd Year)
Q: When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: Ok, so when I was younger I was invited to my friend's awesome pool party every year and her dad would video tape us and ask us questions. My answer to "What do you want to be when you grow up" was "a figure skater!". My friends dad was like "No really, what do you want to be when you grow?" and I replied "No really, a figure skater".

(Concurrent Education (J/I division) Minor in Geography and English - 4th year)
Q: If you were a professor what subject would you teach?
A: I would teach geography because of the variety of strands available. Specifically, social and cultural geography are interested to me because it examines people's interactions in different spaces and traits of cultural groups within society. For these reasons, I would teach geography.

Jami (Public Health - 3rd Year)
Q: What is a career that everyone always says you would be good at?
A: Animal rescue and/or care

Shawn (Kinesiology - 4th Year)
Q: Would you rather work under the ocean, work on land, or work in the sky? Why?
A: When you're under the ocean you cannot see the light, and if you're in the sky your heads in the clouds. I would work on land because of how much wonder it has. The world is a book, and if you don't explore then you read only one page. The day I stop understanding the land we call Earth, is the day I stop living.
