My time at BCIT is coming to an end. Tomorrow at 10:30am I will write my final exam. Although my initial goals were only academic in nature, my time at BCIT has given me much more. Here is a brief look at what I’m taking with me when I leave BCIT.
I have been offered and accepted a job right out of the gate doing online marketing in adventure travel. Instead of the “lost” feeling I felt when I completed my undergrad, I feel validated and optimistic about the future.
2) A Network of Friends & Industry Contacts
Each year I was assigned to a set of 20-30 people. Each year I couldn’t have asked for a better group. My classmates were friendly, fun, honest, and (mostly) professional. I can only hope that we stay connected once graduated.
3) Skills Skills Skills
The ability to conduct a job that only few people can do is the foundation of a good career. I can now take the foundation that BCIT gave me and start building on it.
