Participant Profile

Vanessa Chow

Xbox Senior Channel Marketing Manager, Microsoft

BA Administrative Studies, 2006

I can still remember applying to York U for the concurrent education program to become a teacher. Needless to say, I changed paths part way through and pursued my degree in Administrative studies. Getting into advertising/marketing wasn't easy. I was competing with people that had co-op experience but creativity and persistence have led me to my dream job working in marketing with one of the most exciting brands (Xbox) that I could imagine.
