As an advertising/marketing student, I never thought that there would be a place for me in a company like Scotiabank, however I was pleasantly surprised during my placement. MY teacher recommended working for the communications team in Kingston and I really enjoyed it. I got to work on some very interesting marketing pieces for Scotiabank and expand my skill set.
