Must read for anyone who works with designers. Very insightful article regarding the mind of a designer and how we think.

"....it was found that designers tend to approach problems in a holistic way, above all compared to engineers. They incorporate several problems in their thinking simultaneously, rather than analyzing in depth a singular problem..."

This summer has been fabulous. Beaches, cottages and spending time with my kids. One more month and the insanity begins. FALL IS COMING.

Great advise for any new grad. Thanks Kristine!
 
Kristine Simpson is joined by guest host Julia Kent from Ottawa and +Molli Megasko from New York to talk about the dos and don’ts of applying for a job in public relations and communications.

Kristine thinks it is important to ensure your online brand and space is always presented in a professional manner, because in the PR and communications industry we are the faces of our companies. Julia thinks you need some sort of online presence in addition to the experience on your resume. Social media is an integral part of PR and communications that, young or old, you need to be engaging online. And Molli thinks it is important to research the person and the company you are applying too and use every opportunity you get to showcase creativity that will make you stand out among all the applicants.

In short, do your research, be professional and be creative.

Looking forward to 2012 with a 4 month leave of absence from my staff job at Algonquin to pursue teaching, learning and personal graphic design and artwork starting February. Everyone needs a reboot once and a while.

Top 5 things I learned as a professor this semester.

I survived my first semester as a partial load professor with a roster of 150 students. Here is what I learned.

1: keep on top of grading and assessments (seriously, do)
2: make time for students either for academic or personal issues. It makes a difference.
3: don't assume all students are tech savvy.
4: share and be fair
5: keep calm and carry on

Oh wait, this doesn't count as a lesson learned. But a free give away. I learned ROUS do indeed exist at the museum of natural sciences. Picture proves it.

What did you learn this semester?
