On October 2nd, I was lucky enough to attend a guest lecture at BCIT featuring four guest speakers (Jeff Balin, Rebecca Bowlitt, John Chow and Ivan Surijanovic). The speakers came from diverse backgrounds but there was a common theme of how someone differentiates themselves in the current business climate. Themes ranged from productivity and motivation to how to protect and market your image online, and from using WordPress to blog to using other online tools like GoogleDocs. It was an extremely informative (and dare I say fun, even though I had to get up early) forum, and I really hope BCIT does more of these type of guest lectures in the future.

This was the very first project my team and I worked on for our BSYS 1000 course, a commercial on the benefits of choosing BCIT. None of us had any PowerPoint experience, but I think it came together OK and it was really fun to do.

This is officially my second go-round at post-secondary education. When I went to UBC (1997-2002) the University was in a state of flux in more ways than one and when I was younger I appreciated that state of change. My educational choices also reflected the aspirations of youth; I majored in English and minored in Philosophy. To think that I would one day be studying Economics and Accounting like I am now! I must say UBC is a gorgeous school and I loved my time there, but now I am ready for the new academic challenges BCIT provides.

Hello, my name is Colin Jones and currently I am studying in first year in the Financial Management Program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). Contained within will be a little bit about me and a little bit about the projects I’ve got to work on so far at BCIT, both by myself and in teams.
Originally my post secondary education was at UBC (where I obtained a BA in English in 2002) and I was leaning towards going into law. By chance, while prepping for the LSAT I decided to start to take a class at BCIT part time to help me work on my analytical and reasoning skills. I found I was enjoying my accounting studies more than my law studies and decided to shift my focus, enrolling in BCIT full-time. I may come back to law someday, but for now I am really enjoying my time at BCIT and working with my team. Go Liabilities!
