Bachelor of Journalism

FPAVoices-People-Craig LordStarting out, Craig wasn’t sure what his career would look like. But his experiences as an undergraduate led him to one of the most prestigious names in journalism: The Globe and Mail.

“I was in a program that made opportunities available and I succeeded because I was able to take advantage of those opportunities,” says Lord. “It can be scary, but that’s not a reason not to do something.”

In particular, Craig cites his experience with alumni mentor Mike Curran of the Ottawa Business Journal. Mike put Craig in charge of a news site for Ottawa’s tech community called Techopia. Craig was its first web editor and created written and video content.

“When I interviewed with The Globe, I told them about Techopia and I think a light went off in their heads. That’s what they were looking for.”
