We run the ProProgram designed for people looking to turn a passion into a career. We have nine ProProgrammers coming from all backgrounds – all looking to earn a living at what they do.
Last week we sent the group a ProProgram update to keep everyone abreast of the group’s successes – there is power in numbers – a supportive network is valuable.
Some excerpts from the student’s updates:
- After releasing its new website at the end of January, Polar Horizon’s blog is now online. We have also started being active in the social media world. You can also follow us on Twitter and on our “Bitten by the arctic bug” group on Facebook. polarhorizons.com/blog
- “I am launching my new site tonight…”
- It’s been a busy and exciting couple months. My website is under construction. It’s been a constant learning curve but I feel challenged, energized and feel I have progressed considerably in the past 6 months….and I’m looking forward to the next 6!!!”
- Life has changed so much for me since I started the Pro Programme last October. I have completed 4 workshops which I have found challenging, not only have I learnt about the technical side but an awful lot about myself.
I have had my first job, I have bookings in April and a possible wedding in August. I start shadowing next month 2 afternoons a week which will be a fantastic experience.”
