Alisa Raizman : Student Success Story

I always knew I wanted to have a career in the marketing industry, but I wasn’t sure how my education could take me there. I graduated with an undergraduate degree from the University of Winnipeg, majoring in English and very quickly realized I needed to go back to school and specialize even further. I enjoyed my time at the U of W; the small class sizes and the one to one connection with the professors, so I started to research professional study programs on their website. When I read the program outline for the Public Relations Diploma/Management Certificate, I knew I had finally found exactly what I was looking for.


While the 10 month program was intense, I excelled and flourished as I learned about the marketing and communications field. I found my first job considerably soon after the program was finished, and have been climbing my career ladder since. I have worked with a pet insurance company, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and Crosstown Civic Credit Union. Each position has further sharpened my skills and I know that with my education and work experience, the sky is the limit for what I can achieve. While my journey is not over, I know I could have never have come this far and accomplished this much without PACE.
