The end of semester is always a very busy time of year and this one was no exception. For IMC post-grad students, it’s a mix of final assignments and presentations, a gala evening planned as part of the event management class, and securing job interviews. Some are moving to new cities to conduct the search.
While some are looking for summer employment before returning to school again next year for further studies, others are keen to put their new skills into play in a full-time capacity. A few have secured employment already.
Their skills cover a breadth of disciplines – marketing, advertising, public relations, branding, research, event management and media skills – both offline and online. Over the past year they have learned how to work on teams, to collaborate under stress, and to conduct themselves in a professional manner – the soft skills so important in the workplace.
Congratulations to the 2012-2013 IMC class and best wishes as you move on.
