Usually, Selkirk College recruiter Matt Martin connects with future students as he tours them around campus, often introducing them to a great representative from their program of interest.
Because of physical distance recommendations, he has been connecting with these Selkirk reps on Zoom. Check out our series Real Talk about Selkirk with Matt. These videos are entertaining - a little bit like watching late-night tv with bits like "Get to Know You" "What's Going on Here?!" We've started wondering what's going on when Matt gives these campus tours???!
Press play to learn about each program, careers associated with specific training and bit about life in the Kootenays and each of these interesting people we are lucky to have connected to Selkirk. More videos coming! Stay tuned for yet another Matt at Selkirk, Matty Hillman and his Health & Human Services colleague Jane Green.
