How Google+ Company Pages Can Benefit Your Business

Posted in college pro

Google+ is one of the newest social media spaces available to companies, and the concept of their network is unlike any other. Much like myself, prior to my intern experience with College Pro, most people are unaware of how to use Google+ properly and all that it can do for companies.  I have explored multiple company pages on Google+, as well as participated in an online conference involving Google+ uses for businesses, and am amazed by what it offers.

My Experience at College Pro: My Introduction

Posted in college pro

By: Kristy Neiboer – Media & Marketing Intern, College Pro

 

My Experience at College ProI have just finished my third year in economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. I am hoping to graduate next year with a minor in business, and my goal is to pursue a career in marketing or human resources. For my summer job this year, I was hired as a Social Media and Marketing intern at College Pro. I am one of only a few individuals in the office who have not worked for College Pro in the past, and therefore had no idea what to expect.  This blog will be a series of articles in which I can share my experience, from a newcomer’s point of view.

The College Pro Process for Young Entrepreneurs

Posted in college pro

Ask the typical 19-22 year old what he/she wants to be doing 10 years down the road and the answer you usually get is something along the lines of:  “I want to be running my own <insert the type> business and I want to be very successful”.   While this is just a dream for most, it will become a reality for 1% of those out there with the guts and drive to set themselves up to make it happen.

College Pro Painters Can Give You the Skills College or University Can’t

Posted in college pro

Don’t get me wrong, I love university.  I have spent most of my young adult life with my head in a book.  I’ve had dreams and aspirations towards a professional career in academia.  To this end, I have spent 7 years in post-secondary education; first, for my undergraduate in history, and then my masters in divinity.  My career trajectory has changed since my days in my undergrad at Nipissing towards the priesthood.  You may ask then, why College Pro Painters?  What business does a potential priest have running a business?  Well the reason why I started my own business is that College Pro can give you the skills universities and colleges can’t.

Tips for Student Entrepreneurs from College Pro

Posted in college pro

For the young, motivated, college or university student who is looking into entrepreneurship, the forgiving nature of the marketplace towards student entrepreneurs provides a great opportunity to jump in and explore the possibilities.  In addition to the market’s encouragement, being young also provides some great advantages to the aspiring entrepreneur.  You have the least to lose at this point in life, and you have time to work through the learning curve.  Additionally, there are a few outstanding programs willing to provide the hands on training and support necessary for your development, with little to no up front capitol required on your part.  A couple of programs that I have first hand knowledge of are College Pro Painters and College Pro Window Cleaning.  They have a long-standing history of providing hands-on experience to train and coach student entrepreneurs through the challenges that occur during the path to success.
