Emily McAughey is currently in her fourth year of the Bachelor of Commerce Co-op Program with a major in Marketing Management. She has been involved with the Dalhousie Commerce Society for four years, currently holding the position of Vice President Academic.
Emily has taken advantage of each of her Commerce Co-op opportunities to gain knowledge and experience in the fields she is most passionate about. On her second work term, Emily worked as a Marketing Intern for Nickelodeon and MTV Canada, exposing her to the entertainment industry. Through MTV, Emily discovered an interest in pursuing opportunities in this industry, as well as an aspiration to follow her passion for helping her community through not-for-profit organizations.
The National Mentoring Program, which was recently renamed the C3 Mentoring Program, provided Emily with the opportunity to further explore the entertainment industry, while working in the Halifax community. This summer, Emily worked as the Outdoor Film Experience Coordinator for the Atlantic Film Festival through the C3 Mentoring Program. Emily’s position involved planning and assisting in the execution of the Outdoor Film Experience events (a total of 16 outdoor movie screenings). Emily has been able to add a wide range of event planning and marketing related skills to her resume through her position with the AFF, which will aid her search for a full-time position after graduation.
“Through the C3 Mentoring Program, I was provided with a mentor through my corporate sponsor Emera. In partnership with both my AFF supervisor and my C3 mentor, I was able to build my network and gain valuable connections in both Halifax and Toronto.
I would highly recommend the C3 Mentoring Program to students who are looking for an incredible opportunity to work within a not-for-profit organization, while developing skills that will be beneficial throughout your future career.”
The C3 Mentoring Program Information Session is happening today, January 14, at 1pm. Do not miss out on this incredible opportunity, apply online by January 29.
