[music] MARIA TERESA PAVLOU: George
Brown it just has always had a really wonderful reputation
to me since I moved to Toronto and to me it just– my whole
life I’ve always been very interested in construction;
seeing a hole in the ground become something. [music] MARIA TERESA PAVLOU: You
need to be a hard worker and you definitely need to be a
team player in this industry. That’s a must but you need to be
able to be versatile and change day to day if you need to and
you need to put in the work. RICHARD DE OLIVEIRA: The
expectations of George Brown were– I think to give me a
foundation in the technical side of architecture. Ultimately I did wanna pursue my
own company at some point and I wanted to learn as much as I
could about the fundamentals of what I needed to get there
and I think George Brown delivered that. MARIA TERESA PAVLOU: You need
to know the software and George Brown has taught us
the most up to date software in the industry right now. Our program coordinator actually
was the one who set us up with all these co-ops as well as
the Industry Liaison Office. They were phenomenal so I didn’t
even pursue Moriyama Teshima; they actually set me up with an
initial interview for a co-op there and that’s how I ended
up getting my placement there. And then upon graduation when I
wasn’t sure what was the next step, I talked again with the
faculty here and that’s how I ended up back at Moriyama
Teshima so they were a very big help in– in my future. RICHARD DE OLIVEIRA: You look at
George Brown graduates because of their technical background. So being an alumni, I know sort
of the– the history it brings and what’s taught to students
and we value that as part of our hiring process. We know a student from George
Brown will be capable of doing the work we need. [music]
