    Health Requirements


    Thanks to St. Lawrence College, I already have a job lined up for when I graduate. I’m going to be Human Resource Assistant at the Lennox and Addington County General Hospital. It’s where I did my placement. I’m really flattered because they didn’t even have that position there. It was created after my placement because they noticed a need for it. So now I’ll be gaining experience in my career by job shadowing a professional in many respects, and getting paid. One of the main reasons college is so great is because you have that placement opportunity. I find it opens up a lot of doors for jobs. I would never have been able to land this position if I hadn’t gone there and showed them that they needed someone like me.
