"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while be located close to my family.  My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree.  I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics.  In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."

" Currently I am a Board Member on the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Development Authority, in which my marketing background has been beneficial.  Also, I work with the International 500 Snowmobile race as the Chairperson of the Non-Race Events Committee and I work in the pits doing timing for the race and other tasks.  I am studying snowmobile mechanics to eventually become a race official or snowmobile technician.  I compete on the Soo Co-op Credit Union bowling team and I’m continually involving myself in various community events."

Title: MANAGER'S JOB: FOLKLORE AND FACT
Movie ID: VT3582
Movie Number: 3582
Description: Based on the article by Professor Henry Mintzberg. What does a manager really do? Organize? Plan? Coordinate? Control? That's just the beginning! Rusty Pierce, Product Manager at the Gillette Corporation, has recently been put in charge of a troubled line of personal care products. In order to rejuvenate the Silkience line, Rusty will have to manage her people and resources well. As she works to fulfill the required task. Mintzberg shows how accomplishment in the managerial role often has little to do with "traditional" managerial functions. To replace the classical theory. Mintzberg offers a method of looking at the manager's job that frees managers from the folklore that can keep them from doing their best work.

"Not only is LSSU close and convenient to my home in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, but the atmosphere is very welcoming. All of the staff and students seem to be really open, and the teacher-to-student ratio is very personal, unlike larger universities." [ more ]
