Career Breakfast: So you want to be in media?

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

"As soon as I started to be more authentic and true to myself, the brands started to come to me."  Ruby Benson - owner of Rags and Ruby - instagramer

 

Career hack; take risks, set goals and teach yourself new things.  That advice from our gracious Alumni who returned to speak to our students at the Fall Career Breakfast at Moatfield Campus.  Ruby Benson '09 and James Finlay '06 spoke to Prep and Upper School students and their parents about the Media and Entertainment industry. Ruby has worked in the world of fashion, marketing, photography and now instagram. Her entrepreneurial mind set has led her to a wildly successful career in the digital sphere. James Finlay began shooting short films while at Bayview Glen and imagined himself in the film industry.  He began his post-secondary journey in Global Affairs but his passion took him back to his first love - film.  He took an innovative programme at Centennial College and landed at a start-up called Juice Worldwide.  He's helped grow the company exponentially as the Director of Sales and Distribution. Both fielded questions from the audience and toured the new Moatfield campus after their presentations.

 

The next Career Breakfast on the Business industry takes place on Dec. 4, 2018 at 7:30 am.
