Over the past year, in partnership with Lakehead University and RBC, Amanda Sauermann, Senior Marketing Specialist at DST Consulting Engineers Inc, has had a placement student under the Future Launch Program. This program helps youth develop new skills, grow their network, and gain valuable work experience.
Robert Kopytek-Mackenzie is in his third year of the Honours Bachelors of Commerce program at Lakehead University with a major in Finance and a minor in Marketing.
One day a week over the course of the school year, he has worked alongside Amanda in the DST office helping with marketing projects, learning about the industry and different business practices, as well as experiencing work in an office setting. Robert has done research for trade shows, promotions, and the social media marketing side of DST.
