MEET OUR STUDENTS
Meet Chantelle, a senior who served as Office Manager of Diamond Edge Communications. What she says she’s learned about her future career at SCT:
“I like the cliché ideas of stepping to the beat of my own drum, not always following the beaten path and thinking outside of that big, square box. Advertising combines originality, vision and business acumen to guide a targeted population through a presentation of ideas that can become markers on some of society’s timeless trends. I believe my SCT education has allowed me to explore my passion, grasp the business model concept, and has provided a taste of reality. SCT has opened many doors for my future in the fast-paced world of advertising.”
Chantelle hopes to work in promotions or in events management for a record label or to be a media director at a global advertising agency. She also says that she aspires to teach one day as it would be an honor to give back to future scholars.
