I am taking a graduate course in Web Design at Sheridan College in Oakville. This one-year intensive program has twenty four motivated students . Some of us are recent University graduates acquiring marketable skills, others already have a career in design and are upgrading their digital skills. At the end of the year we will have the accomplishments and training to enter the web design, advertising, marketing and e-commerce industries.
As part of our course we have the opportunity to speak to industry professionals from world renowned companies, many of them graduates of the Sheridan program. They provide valuable tips and different perspectives about their work experiences – a valuable tool for us as we launch our careers. One of our ongoing assignments is to write and publish an online blog of these talks, a resource to help us in future job searches.
As an practicing artist – a graduate of University of Toronto and Sheridan College, Oakville in Art and Art History – I will include my thoughts and experiences of the Toronto Art scene over the next few months.
