I should probably rephrase that a bit, I do sys admin on the desktop side of things (not so much server setups and so forth). Responsible for a number of different things such as image testing/creation, responsible for new technology, various projects, patching, and automation. We don't really have your standard system admin anymore, we have a server team but I thats mostly just configuration. My role is more of a senior tier 3 support role, we're just constantly evolving. No co-op by choice, got a really good summer gig back then. Started off as a field tech worked my way up. I definitely gained experience along the way but didn't start out where I am today.

Sorry for the confusion.

Finishing up 2nd Sem CPA. I transferred to CPA from CET( basically took all CPA courses except APC100, had to replace it with LNX155).So I'm taking apc in sem2 instead of a gen ed. Problem is if I want to get into coop after sem3 I me will likely run into issues because I think they require you to complete your gen Ed's by then but I had to do apc this sem. Is there a possibility that I can get a waiver for coop or an exception since I still took 5 courses 1st sem and taking 5 courses this sem?

Also anyone know good profs for CPA Sem3 and profs I should avoid?

First term of co-op occurs after 3rd semester. When I went through the program, we had to take a co-op class during 3rd semester. Did you bother to go to the co-op information sessions to ask these questions?

I talked to the program advisor Mariyam and she showed me a graph and said that I cant take coop if I haven taken gen eds. Should I also talk to the coop coordinator after talking to the advisor? What if the adviser minds me doing that. Grades arnt a problem for me as I am performing pretty well this semester too and I had a very good GPA last semester.

Has anyone been able to add Fall semester courses to cart? Early enrolment for me is tomorrow (Aug .7), I can only see summer courses listed, and no way to change the term to 'Fall'...

Question for any 3rd semester CTY students:

Is it necessary to take a general education course this semester? Do I need the credit to graduate? Cause there is already 5 mandatory courses to take and I dont want to add a sixth.

Thinking of a career change here because i feel that my gender gives me at a disadvantage. I took the law clerk program 4 years back and have been working as a legal asst. Got laid off.

What's hot in the near future that could also use my skills as a legal asst? I was thinking property mgmt.

Have you thought about working for the government of the city of Toronto (Bay&Queen)? Maybe my idea is off as you getting off from legal assistant may suggest you want to step away from law and politics.

In general, do Seneca alumni and alumae think a mature student go for private tutoring for the Seneca programs? I have difficulties recalling course knowledge as I am good at theory, the reason I go to Seneca for industry related training...

ya, i sorta do want to step away from legal stuff and getting into gov't is a lot harder than it sounds. I'm wondering what people of my similar circumstances have done and what careers are in demand in the near future (i.e. cannabis industry?).

also if a class I have to take is available ONLINE, can I take it instead of inclass?

The class I'm thinking of taking online is ISC100. I'm a Business Marketing student, first year
