Name: Kate Grishko
Position: Business Development Assistant
Joined Ashton: January 2015
Kate first joined Ashton as a co-op student, working as a Marketing Research Assistant. After her co-op term, she moved to Ashton’s Prometric test Centre, working part-time while taking classes, before being asked to coordinate the Ashton Achievement Awards as a freelancer.
When Kate’s co-op term was over, she joined Ashton again on part-time basis as a Business Development Assistant. Her current job includes doing market research, helping Ashton with different projects and initiatives, and event-planning.
For Kate, Ashton was a great opportunity to expose herself to a variety of tasks and enhance her professional presence. “Prior to working at Ashton, the majority of my work experience was unpaid and informal. I am extremely grateful to Ashton for providing me with a diversity of skills and experiences. I am learning a lot about various aspects of business, event management, marketing, and the relationship between them, and can be more confident about my future.”
