I am investing in college now because I want to be able to further my future career. I have already completed one college program for Radio Broadcasting. With that diploma I have acquired the skills to write radio ads, make sales pitches, create music logs and be an on-air presence.
I am currently working on my second diploma for Advertising and Marketing Communications. I have already learned how to layout designs, conduct market research, create budgets and schedule advertisements, how to write advertising copy and create media plans.
In September I will begin my final college program of Public Relations. I hope to learn more about press conferences, how to write press releases, how to plan fundraising events.
It is my hope that I will be able to use all the tools and skills that I have gained from all three programs to help me land my dream career. It is my dream to work in downtown Toronto or New York City as an event planner or somewhere in theatre/Broadway as an advertiser.
I believe investing in college now would be the best thing a young adult could do to help them obtain their dreams. The skills you get during your time at a post secondary institution will greatly benefit you when applying for jobs in the hopes of obtaining your dream career. So I believe you should definitely take the opportunity to invest in college now while we are still young, rather than later.
