Toronto, Sept. 28, 2020 — Seneca, one of Canada’s largest postsecondary institutions, has launched the next phase of its Challenge Accepted recruitment campaign, focusing on the success of its graduates across many sectors. The campaign calls on future students to carve out their futures right now in the words of the campaign, Now is Your Time.
Now more than ever, postsecondary graduates are being asked to rise to the challenges of a world that has dramatically changed against the backdrop of a global pandemic.
Challenge Accepted provides an exclusive look inside careers and work environments of Seneca’s graduates and students who have been relentless in their commitment to work hard and are prepared to take on the challenges of now.
“Our graduates always make a positive impact when they join the workforce,” said Seneca President David Agnew. “They navigate an ever-evolving economy and adapt and adjust to changing circumstances — more critical now with the uncertainty surrounding our progress towards the post-pandemic period. This campaign reflects the resilience of our graduates regardless of the challenges they face now and in the future.”
Designed as the next step in Seneca’s Challenge Accepted recruitment campaign, this year’s campaign features graduates excelling in high-demand careers including Patricia Jaggernauth, Emmy Award Winning Host, TV Personality of CP24 and narrator of the video, Neil Hetherington, CEO Daily Bread Food Bank and Winston Stewart, President and CEO, Wincon Security.
“This recruitment campaign shows how Seneca grads have to hit the ground running in their industries. Creating a security company meant I had to accept the challenge to overcome the obstacles that are associated with starting a business,” said Mr. Stewart who graduated from Seneca’s Police Foundations diploma program in 1992. “Attending Seneca under the guidance of its expert faculty made a key difference in preparing me to work in the security sector; I graduated totally ready to take on the industry.”
