You heard it right! I am BACK… working at St. Lawrence College. This time I am not a Client Service Representative/Peer Contact. This time, I have a new position – a Communications Advisor. I can’t believe I get to continue working for a college that I admire and value. St. Lawrence College has provided me with numerous opportunities to get out of my shell and develop as a marketing professional. I used to be a person who was so shy that I couldn’t order my own meal and now I am taking on a managerial position at the college! I am truly thankful for SLC because it has provided me with a comfortable and open environment to grow.

I never would have thought that the week after I completed my third year and final placement I would be working my first ‘adult’ job at the college. This week, alongside my coworker, we will establish training material for new employees at the peer contact centre, in addition to executing interviews to possible recruits. That is right?! I am the interviewer this time (GASP)! This shy, introverted Tara is not so shy anymore and is becoming more of a leader!


I am very excited to see what I can contribute at the college during my six-month contract and can’t wait to spend these months with such an amazing group of people. Thank you SLC for providing me with another amazing opportunity!
