I’m currently enrolled in Dalhousie University’s Bachelor of Commerce Co-Op Programme, majoring in Finance. In previous Co-Op terms I gained transferable sales experience from the non-profit sector, and when 2 previous employees of Aedos gave rave reviews about their experience there, I decided to apply for the position of summer Co-Op Sales Rep. Doing direct sales gave me exposure to a wide range of people and situations, and I learnt a lot about the sales industry. They have a strong training programme which I really benefitted from, and they didn’t micromanage. I also enjoyed the friendly competition between workers at all levels. My experience here has given me lots of empowerment and experience handling diverse responsibilities. It’s a prime resume builder for many fields of work.
FRASER WILLSON Co-op Student
I went to NSCC for a diploma in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. I planned to continue my degree in Commerce after graduating but I decided to try something new and began working with Aedos. It would be impossible to name everything I’ve learned since I started working with Aedos. A few of the biggest things have been the importance of sales in the real world, the necessity of leadership and how to successfully coach. I’ve learned a lot about myself as well which is very rewarding. I love the empowerment that I get working at Aedos. The responsibility to teach and coach and the fact that I really get to rely on the hard work I do to have success. My long term goal is to become a business owner and run my own marketing firm. Aedos is helping me with that every day by properly preparing me with the knowledge and skills I will need to be successful when I take that next step. Aedos Marketing Concepts has been the catalyst for a lot of great things that have happened to me in the past year. It’s given me a vision for my future that is far more ambitious than it would have been otherwise. Seeing the opportunity that it has given me is invigorating and it makes me excited to get to the office every day.
MARC MACKENZIE Assistant Manager
I have a background originally in mechanical engineering. I worked in the automotive sector in Quality Assurance before I started doing engineering sales. I came to work here because I could see the long term opportunity the company was offering. Now I’m in a position where I’m able to offer that same opportunity to others. I can be an inspiration to my team and lead them to grow and better themselves. I have big ambitions for our company in the long term. We’ll be starting our business-to-business campaign and I want us to gross a million in sales this year as an organisation. ‘The woods are lovely, dark and deep But I have promises to keep And miles to go before I sleep And miles to go before I sleep’ Robert Frost
