“After graduating from Radio Broadcasting at Canadore College in 2004, I was excited to start my career in media. The experience I gained from the program and courses such as Writing and Speaking to Persuade, Sales and the internship program enabled me to start as a Sales Coordinator at a leading Television Broadcasting company. Without the preparation and direction from the course and instructors I would not be as confident in the industry as I am today. I still am in touch with my Canadore instructors who continually offer their support and guidance in the industry.  Being a part of a successful sales team at TSN is not only rewarding but exciting and would not have been possible without my Radio Broadcasting diploma.”
