Class of 2016
Leo Tapel (GRA '16)
During Leo’s last semester at Seneca, he received an opportunity to become an intern at FLARE Magazine, one of Canada's top fashion magazines. During his time there, he was able to further enhance his skills, learned how the industry works, and made great professional connections. The internship only lasted for two months, but a few weeks after his contract ended, Leo received yet another opportunity to become a freelance designer at Flare which he happily accepted.
By May 2016, Leo received an offer to become a full-time designer at FLARE. Just before graduating, he was able to find and secure a job and that’s all because of Seneca's internship program that Leo is very thankful for. Without this, he wouldn't have been able to make the connections he did and land this great opportunity.
