Communications Co-op Student "On the Job"!

Dubinia Nieforth, a Grade 12 student at Marymount Academy is looking forward to working with the SCDSB Communications team for her co-op placement.

March 21, 2010 - Dubinia Nieforth is a grade 12 student at Marymount Academy and is contemplating a future in marketing, advertising and public relations. When she approached her guidance teacher Brenda Thompson, the two discussed the possibility of a co-op placement that would allow her the opportunity to try out these types of jobs to see if it would be a good fit. After talking it over with her co-op teacher, Allison Simspon, Dubinia was offered the opportunity to work with the Communications Team at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. When asked why she chose co-op, Dubinia replied that she “felt that she was ready to try some work in a real career field and preferred out-going, social situations rather than sitting in a class. By getting out and experiencing what (she) was interested in sounded like an amazing opportunity.” Dubinia has been documenting her experiences and the stories she has been covering in her own newsletter. She has also had the opportunity to learn new software on the macbook including Pages and GarageBand which will be great experience for her when looking at advertising and graphic design. Already Dubina has helped with the celebration for the United Kingdom visitors as well as visiting schools with the communications team to learn about covering events and media relations. For the remainder of the year, Nieforth will be th “eyes and ears” for Marymount keeping on top of all of the stories as well as continuing to assist the team with future marketing and Sudbury Catholic promotions and events. Dubinia is looking forward to her future assignments and exploring all of the possibilities that her new co-op placement will offer her as she wants her career to involve “ideas, writing, working with people and getting to be creative – this is just the perfect fit!”
