Employers are increasingly looking for human resources professionals with specific skill sets — that’s what makes Loyalist’s post-graduate program ideal. In addition to gaining the HR skills necessary to succeed in the field, students can build upon their previous post-secondary training — nurses make excellent wellness specialists, social service workers excel at employee relations and teachers are great at training and development. I think Loyalist’s post-grad program is extremely relevant — I’ll be watching for its grads.

Human Resources Coordinator

I studied public affairs and policy management theory at university. Loyalist’s post-grad Public Relations program is showing me how to put that to work. I’m focused — planning, developing, and honing my communication skills. When I graduate this June I’ll be ready — speechwriter, P.R. advisor, researcher, political candidate — the choice will be mine.

Research Associate, Ipsos Canada
Here’s my plan. I have a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education Honours degree from Queen’s and now, as a student in Loyalist’s Public Relations program, I’m positioning myself to become a well-rounded professional. I’ll graduate with improved communication skills and the practical experience of a placement on my résumé.

My plan worked. I knew I needed more than my degree in the competitive field of international development. I saw the post-grad Public Relations program as an opportunity to gain hands-on skills and combine them with my university theory. At Loyalist I’ve gained the confidence to tell employers ‘I can,’ rather than, ‘I think I can.’ I could not be happier with my career.

My employers told me they were really interested in me because of my experience at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, where I did my placement as a student in Loyalist’s Sports and Entertainment Sales and Marketing program. This program has played a key role in my success.

The Sports and Entertainment Sales and Marketing post-grad program is exactly what member teams in the Ontario Hockey League need when looking for interns and new employees. It will prepare students for work in the Team and League Sports Industry and provides teams a direct route to students and graduates when looking to fill these positions. The Peterborough Petes will definitely be taking advantage of this one-of-a-kind program and its students.

My plan was to complete my Masters in online journalism and work in sports communication. It was based on three steps. First was a Bachelors degree in English. I then completed the post-graduate Sports Journalism program at Loyalist, and honed my skills with a professional journalistic style. Next my Masters, and now I have my dream job. Loyalist was invaluable in making this happen.

Here’s my plan. My placement in the post-grad Sports Journalism program is giving me work experience — great for my résumé along with my Psychology degree. The Loyalist faculty and advisory board members are active in the industry so I’m already building a network. I’m going to be a sports journalist — learning has never been this exciting.
