Journalism School: While by far the best way to become involved
in media is to start volunteering, J-school can help hone your
skills at writing, broadcasting and tracking down elusive politicians.
Programs in this field range from college diplomas to undergraduate
university programs to Master's programs.
Business School: Corporate big wigs, accountants, financial
planners and managers are just a few of the potential jobs
available to graduates with an honours business administration
or a master's business administration degree. Business schools
are increasingly competitive, including Western's own Richard
Ivey School of Business.
Internships: Often the best way to get a job that's interesting,
innovative and usually off the well-beaten track, is to take
up one of the hundreds of internships offered at various companies
and organizations across the country. From working at charities
to media outlets to computer companies, internships offer valuable
hands-on skills and offer the chance for a healthy serving
Work Force: While internships often remain unpaid positions,
those who can't afford to starve can take up their place in
the work force. Be open and willing to look for something a
little off-the-cuff to find what may tickle your taste buds.
Clown College: And if all else fails -everyone likes the funny
guy (or gal).
