    The Problem with Aboriginal Education in Canada

    Its a startling realization that more than one-third

    of Aboriginal people in Canada havent earned a

    high school diploma. In this special feature, we learn

    more about the education disparity between Native

    and non-Native peoples in Canada, along with the

    strides being taken to fix the problem.

    Be Smart. Be Passionate. Trust yourself. Work Hard.

    boxes, then I would make it the best darn maga-zine about cardboard boxes EVER. And I would be happy doing that job, provided that it paid well, gave me some creative control, and my co-workers were talented, smart, fun people to be around.

    This is my last editors note for jobpostings magazine (next issue, our web editor will be writ-ing this note for our special Womens issue). I found another job, or, rather, it found me feels good, Im not going to lie.

    This magazine has come a long way. When I started, there was me, an intern, and a designer who worked from home (and a few sales people), and virtually no freelance writers. Now, we have a web editor, two or three interns, an in-house art director, a product manager, and more free-lance writers than you can shake a pen at.

    I think it is safe to say that this magazine has got-ten better. It has gotten better because of the combined hard work of the people behind it, the people who slept in their offices when on dead-line, the people who went outside their job de-scription, who showed intelligence, passion, and brought sincerity and pride to their work.

    And thats what you should do when you start your career.

    I figured, for my last note, I would share with you some tried and tested work habits:

    1. Learn how to give a presentation. 2. Shut up. Learn to listen to your colleagues, and your boss. 3. Dont say no to opportunities to take on extra projects (within reason, of course). 4. Say no, but delicately. Some things are not worth your time. Or the companys. 5. Success teaches you nothing; failure, on the other hand, is an awesome way to learn. 6. Be sincere, be humble, and set your ego aside. Beware of other peoples egos. 7. Trust your instincts. Youre smart, and good at what you do. 8. Trust your team, and the people around you. 9. Have fun and challenge yourself. 10. Work hard, use common sense, and make sure you care about your work. 11. Get something going in your life other than work; itll help you decompress. 12. Eat a good breakfast (Im still working on this one).

    Did I ever tell you how I got this job? I started as an intern. I had gone back to school after working at another magazine, to complete a fabulous one-year post-grad program called Book and Magazine Publishing at Centennial College. After I fin-ished the program during the recession job boards had dried up and rusted. There was nothing, and what was out there was quickly gobbled up by people 20 years my senior.

    I had done an internship earlier in the year, and was hesitant to take on another one. I had rent to pay, and an internship would mean giving up shifts at the restaurant I worked at. So I did what any sane person looking for a career would do; I gave up my apartment, and went homeless well, not exactly. I stayed on a few of my friends comfy couches.

    I did it because I knew what I wanted in my career. For the first time in my life, I knew with 100 percent certainty that I wanted to be an editor. I knew what experience I was lacking, where my soft skills needed polishing, and what I needed to do make myself attractive to an employer. I didnt care that my friends were landing jobs at big name publishing houses, or getting awesome freelance assignments. From now on, I told myself, my success would be judged on my own terms not societys or my friends, or my moms definition of suc-cess. If I got a job working at a magazine about cardboard
